So sad to hear of the passing of every comedians friend @brodyismefriend. Brody was a true eccentric. The embodiment of a comedian in his passion, anger and joy. I feel like the comedy community lost our mascot. Bye Brody. It was an honor to know you and see you do your thing

Brody Stevens was singular. Nobody else like him.
Always sweet and kind.
Always super hilarious.
He said to me last year: “I heard there’s a gif of us fist-bumping. You know computers, link it to me!”.
