Biography

John McKeever was born on August 28, 1984 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He first started getting involved in stand-up comedy when he was a working employee for Home Depot, where he had met Tommy Pope, who was already employed as a part-time cashier during this time.[8] Pope already had an interest in the comedy field, and after developing a friendship with McKeever, he eventually took him to one of his comedy performances at The Raven Lounge in Philadelphia. Since then, McKeever pursued into being a stand-up comedian himself.

Since the launch of his comedy career, McKeever has appeared on Adam DeVine's House Party[9][10] and the pilot episode of How to Get Away with Murder.[11] He has also been a performer at Helium Comedy Club[12] and at the 2014 New York Comedy Festival, alongside comedy-partner, Tommy Pope.[13][14][15]

In July 2015, McKeever and Tommy Pope teamed up with Comedy Central to create the web series, "Delco Proper."[3][4][16] During the following month after the pilot was posted on YouTube, it was announced that Comedy Central officially picked up the show as a licensed web series for the network.[17][18][19]
