8. He gave that gift to every comic that came after him that night. That’s why he was such a master at warming up TV shows. He simply refused to accept that audience could not be made to laugh and he threw every thought and instinct he had at that problem until it was solved..

9. And after he had cracked it, it stayed solved until the show was over. He hit the funny bone like he was doing accupuncture. He was a true master. He will be greatly missed. /end

Thanks for sharing this John
Beautiful story. Thank you.
Thank you for sharing. We did the iron sheik roast together and was the only person complimenting everyone instead of roasting. He was so clever.
oh man this is a great story
thank you for this story! "I hip pocket YOU" jesus christ he was funny
I’m going to say this all the time now...I hip pocket YOU. ❤️
I remember the night. Thanks for sharing, Jon.
Great story, John. Pure Brody.
Thank you for sharing this John. Made me cry while laughing at hearing his voice again. (Yelling. Always yelling.)
Thank you so much for this John. We will never have another Brody.
Thanks for writing this, Jon. Describes Brody perfectly.
Thanks for the beautiful story. He was one of a fucking kind! Nobody will ever be like him.
Thank you, John. I needed to read this right now. Thank you
I’m heartbroken over the news about Brody Stevens. @JonRoyOfficial depicts his specialness in this story about him. The kindest friend/co-worker/person even through that raw pain he was so vocal about... he was still a joy to be around. Fuck this. #RIPBrodyStevens
This was my favorite Brody tweet so far. I heard his voice in the set. “I hip pocket YOU” will stay with me forever
I didn’t know him as a comic, and after reading this story regret it.
Just beautiful. Thank you for tweeting all of this
Thank you for sharing this story that so perfectly captures Steven Brody Stevens #818 #push #positiveENERGY
Thank you. That was the perfect Brody story. God Rest him.
Thank you for this.
That was a great story! thank you!
I remember seeing him in 2015 after 5 hours at the comedy store, seeing headliner after headliner. He finished the show at 1am to a room of 10-15 people & did almost an hour himself. I was laughing harder then than the previous 5 hours. He even stayed after to chat w/ us 🖤RIP
this was a great story to highlight what kind of comic Brody was. thank you for this John
If never heard of him before now. You’ve made me feel like I’ve been missing out. Going to try to watch anything of this man that I can.
He did 2 hours of crowd work at the end of the night on a random Tuesday at the Comedy Store and I couldn't believe it. We had been there for 4+ hours already and he was just relentless. Amazing I saw it coming if I'm being honest but it's still unspeakably sad #ripbrody
Really beautiful memory. Thanks for sharing
John, thanks for sharing this story. It means a lot and had me laughing out loud 😔
Thank you, John. He was a beauty!
That was excellent, John! Thanks for sharing, I am glad I read the entire thing.
Thanks for this thread.... I can hear his voice, and it made me smile. @lauramarcus @yookc @ChrisRose

I'm in tears after reading this. Thank you for giving us this amazing insight into him.
Love this story and UM this is giving me FEELINGS. I’m so sorry I never saw him live
thank you for this!
#devastating He was always at the store and I thought I had time...I was wrong! #ripbrody
Ha, I know that feeling. I worked a police department Christmas party and it was like performing in front of the statues of Easter Island until I got a tip on jokes I could use on the deputy chief that caused the entire room to laugh their asses off (except the deputy chief)
Love this! I'm blessed to have been in the audience for several of Brody's warm-ups, he certainly was the best part of the experience! #RIPBrodyStevens
Saw him do it many times at clubs and open mics in New York. Wonderful man.
Thank you John. Brilliant Brody.

Thank you for sharing!❤️
“He hit the funny bone like he was doing acupuncture” - such a beautiful description.
I trust somehow, perhaps, hopefully 😭I never knew him, I never even knew his comedy that well BUT there was a resonance I don't know why, your anecdote is comforting to me, as I rewatch his legacy I will communicate my appreciation to him
I’m sure you saw this alwredy.... just incase
