R.I.P. Brody Stevens, 1970-2019
As a comedian, Brody was truly fearless on stage in a way that so few in comedy get to. His energy and presence were undeniable and long time friend Zach Galifianakis even noted that he thought of Brody fondly as a “jock doing performance art”.
Just a few hours ago, TMZ broke news that beloved comedian Brody Stevens was found dead by hanging in an apparent suicide.
For our money, he was the best crowd warm-up, he did indeed have a scene stealing part in the Hangover, and his connection with any crowd was simply magical. We wouldn’t be surprised if we don’t see anything like Brody ever again.
Stevens was very open about his mental health issues, joking about it every night on stage. Still, it would seem, there was something else that lead him to his end today. (FYI, the National Suicide Prevention Hotline can be reached at 1-800-273-8255 and they’re available 24 hours a day if you need someone talk to)
Brody was a great comedian and his passing sadly came too early. Please remember him for his great works including his comedy special at The Comedy Store, his Comedy Central series Enjoy It!, and one of our old favorites, The Brody Stevens Interview Challenge.
Also, just Google and YouTube Brody Stevens and enjoy working “YES! You got it!” into your daily vernacular in his honor.
