On his old website, Brody Stevens had a pic of him and @davidcrosss with the caption “2 Generations of Laughter” and I don’t know why but that always laid me out. I think Cross is maybe 5 years older than him.

I'm so bummed to hear about Brody. I know you and zach and Sarah and everybody really, must be hurting. Really sad.
At one point, brody’s biz card read: BRODY STEVENS. IF YOU’RE NOT LAUGHING, YOU’RE WRONG.
Hey @pattonoswalt. We’d love to figure out how to honor Brody’s life and hilarity in a big way. We have some initial ideas, but would be super open to collaborating.
Patton man I’m so sorry. I can’t find a clip, but when I was in high school I watched Comedy Central all the time - do you remember was “lone Star of David” Brody’s joke? It killed me. I told all my small town southern friends about a Jew having back up in Texas.
You take that back!!! David Cross is 29 FOREVER.
I never knew to much about being depressed 😔 until now ,my husband was just told 2 weeks ago he has Lung Cancer and his meds are so so expensive 🙄🙄
Was fortunate to see Brody @TheSatelliteLA a few months ago (first and only time) and he had the crowd mesmerized. I remember thinking that he deserved to be bigger than he was. RIP
Are 'comedian years' different? ... kind of like dog years? That would explain it.
That made me LOL.
Fatjewish and fuckjerry must be so fake bummed right now.
I’m sorry for the loss and it’s so difficult to understand the “why”. When in distress, suicidal people aren’t getting the help they need. They do reach out, they do try f’n hard to live. I’m not sure what the answers are, but I know those people who suffer reach out.
"Make him say the word Pacoima"
I always understood that joke as Cross never did a day on Periscope, which Brody Stevens was the king of. #818forlife
Noooooo. God I loved that guy. RIP. Positive energy.
When I first moved to LA, I saw Brody at the Comedy Store. He was the most exciting comic to watch.
That is making me laugh through the sadness
That could be a generation for some species. Maybe it's a clue.
I first saw him kill at the M bar on Fountain and Vine back in the day. So sad to hear this....RIP
LOL, well my brother is 4 years younger than me, but we are TOTALLY from different generations!
I'm so sorry, y'all. *HUGS*
That made me fucking laugh xD! Hell yeah man #RIPBrodyStevens
Is it pre or post @davidcrosss hobo beard though?
Age has no boundaries! And apparently, neither does comedy.
The Shadow Man interview is something I've watched about a dozen times.
😂😂😂😂 That's just phenomenal. Thank you for sharing that.
You👏should 👏be 👏 laughing 👏 on 👏CADENCE 👏 alone.
I’m so sorry Patton. Love to you and your loved ones. Your light is amazing And needed by many.
Despite his issues with mental health he came across as self confident and physically strong which is how he wanted others to see him and see himself, especially when talking about sports and particularly baseball which he played in the minors.
Shit I remember this. 🤣
Sorry you lost your friend, peace to you
Omg whyyyyyyyy not the news I was expecting today 😢 😢
This made me laugh for a good five minutes. twitter.com/pattonoswalt/s…
This made me laugh for like 4 minutes
What’s this business of Oddball not paying him? I read a comment thread about him being stiffed. Mental illness is real. So is depression. But getting paid is real. Sometimes people suck - and that’s realer than real. What if he was tired of people? Sad situation.
Hey, do you guys remember the old Magilla Gorilla cartoon song? Prepare for total creepout
Life is fragile. We will all die and it will be at any moment from anything. When we draw our last God given breath, the only things that will matter is love and what we did in this life with Jesus Christ. Nothing else will matter in that final moment. Peace be with you.
I know David Cross. Who is Brody Stevens???
It is hard for you and those that share that kind of work. People I like as in @briangaar and @ZoltanCOMEDY had opportunity to work with him. Sometimes the people that make others laugh hide great pain and or use it in their work. I’m sorry.
Condolences to you and David. You’ve all made me cry with laughter at one point or another.
Technically different generations as Cross is tail end boomers and Stevens was early genX.
Brody was a hilarious ballsy comedian, but more importantly had the unique ability to make you feel an instant honest connection; positive, empathetic, authentic energy. #StevenBrodyStevens #PositiveEnergy #818forlife
I was lucky to see Brody as a warm up for a comedy show. Laughed my ass off. A wonderful human lost.😢
And nobody could list IMDB credits like Brody.
He’d stopped taking his medications because it “dulled” his creativity. So very sad...
So sad. I found him just recently and loved his stuff. Incredibly funny. Terrible loss. I’m sorry for the loss of your friend.
