Jashad “Shaddy” McCoy has been a fan of comedy and making others laugh for his entire life. Professionally, he became a stand-up comedian in 2010 and has attracted a following like no other comic in his hometown of New Orleans, LA. By way of his fearless approach, unbreakable work ethic and consistent nationwide show bookings, McCoy has been fortunate to open up for veteran comedians such as Kevin Hart, Cedric the Entertainer, Lil Duval Michael Blackson and Donnell Rawlins just to name a few. Shaddy has truly grown into his craft and mastered it.
“Shaddy Feelgood,” as he was initially named, began his career primarily as a local host on the nightlife scene and soon extended his talent to rocking comedy clubs, college campuses, corporate events, and Christian church / gospel events. Voted as Louisiana’s Funniest Person (2013), National Miller Time Competition Finalist (2013) & Shaquille O’Neal All-Star Comedy Competition Finalist (2015), McCoy began to actualize his true comedic potential, versatility, mass appeal and blossomed into a well seasoned headliner. Headlining opportunities for the “Laugh Your Way to Heaven” and “Can’t Stop Laughing” Christian comedy tours placed him on stages alongside the likes of gospel greats Yolanda Adams, Bishop Hezekiah Walker, Pastor Shirley Caesar and many others.
Most recently, Shaddy has filmed his first nationally televised stand-up performance for Comedy Central & Kevin Hart’s “Hart of the City: Season 3,” an unscripted comedy series spotlighting America’s top comics. In addition, he recently appeared in Master P’s motion picture comedy blockbuster, “I Got The Hook Up 2,”and the promotional trailer for Warner Bros.’ “Shaft”movie. Currently, the multi-faceted comedic tycoon is slated to be a feature performer on the Paul Mooney Presents… national tour scheduled this upcoming fall.
Shaddy McCoy possesses a unique combination of calculated edge, wit and precise punch-lines that leave audiences laughing in stitches all night long. Inspired by the likes of comedy greats such as Dave Chappelle, Robin Harris and Bernie Mac, McCoy is now poised to soar to amazing heights as one of today’s premier comedic geniuses. ‘Get Ready For The Feelgood Experience!’
