You have to give it up for a man who still does Helen Keller blowjob jokes. And who, when his doctor asks if he smokes weed recreationally, responds, "It's not like I'm in a league or something." Medford native Mike McCarthy calls himself the Comedy Barbarian, and he certainly clubs his audience with his act. Now a national touring comic, this bald bastard can be seen locally at Dick's Beantown Comedy Vault in the Alley. At least we think that's the Mike McCarthy readers voted Best Comedian. It could be one of the other 5000 ball-busting Boston smartasses who have that name.
