Humorist/Story-Teller Dylan Brody provides full-length stand-up style entertainment in the tradition of the great raconteurs. Weaving personal narratives that seem wholly factual (none of them are) seamlessly with stories that must surely be entirely made-up (none of them are), Brody draws audiences into a gales of laughter and long, listening silences with tales that always entertain, often enlighten and strive to elevate.
David Sedaris says. "He's funny in ways that don't remind me of anyone."'
Richard Lewis says, "The twists of Brody's psyche are cathartic for him and a thrilling for his ... audience."
Robin Williams said, "The writing is brilliant."
With fans that include comedic legends such as Carl Reiner, Robin Williams, Roseanne Barr and Richard Lewis, and an ever-expanding repertoire of witty and profound tales of his journey through life that are unique, yet utterly recognizable to everyone, Dylan has earned a reputation as one of America’s fastest rising storytellers. '
Dylan’s newest full-length, award-winning, stand up-style story-telling special, Dylan Brody’s Driving Hollywood has been licensed by NextUpComedy for 2017 release. Blue Panther Productions contracted with Mr. Brody to work with director Nancy Carlin to de ... velop the show as a fully realized, theatrically staged solo show to tour internationally in the Spring of 2017. Earlier specials included More Arts/Less Martial, available as a five dollar download from Rooftop Comedy and The Wereshmuck: Transformations of a Moron for the now defunct Anteye.com.
For three years running best-selling author and humorist David Sedaris invited Mr. Brody to share his stages when touring the West Coast.
Mr. Brody has performed regularly for the David Feldman show on KPFK(Pacifica Radio) in Los Angeles., The Drive with Steve Jaxon on KSRO (Sonoma County) and is a regular contributor to John Rabe’s OFF RAMP on KPCC, NPR's Pasadena affiliate. His material runs on XM/Sirius Satellite Radio’s comedy channels, Pandora and he contributes to the Huffington Post and Daily Kos. He has written for dozens of comedians, including Jay Leno, who has used Brody’s work in his monologues on NBC’s The Tonight Show and recently placed a story in the burgeoning magazine of American humor, The American Bystander.
In 2005, Dylan won the Stanley Drama award for playwriting. He is a thrice-published author of fiction for the Young Adult market with one of his books, A Tale of a Hero and The Song of Her Sword finding a place in the curriculum at several public schools in the U.S., earning him a yearly influx of poorly written fan letters and e-mails to which Mr. Brody diligently replies. His recent one-woman play, Singing in the Wrong Direction played to sold out crowds in the NoHo arts district late in 2016.
He has appeared on A&E’s Comedy on the Road, FOX TV’s Comedy Express, and Showtime's The Green Room with Paul Provenza. In 2010, Dylan appeared in the George Carlin Tribute at the New York Public Library, hosted by Whoopi Goldberg, featuring Anne Meara and Jerry Stiller, Ben Stiller, Kevin Smith, Louis C.K., and publisher Lewis Lapham, among others.
In early 2007, Dylan Brody's Thinking Allowed, brought long form humor and insight, literate and literary, to a broad based audience. The first all story-telling program ever in the venue, the show enjoyed a successful six month run on the main stage at the Hollywood Improv.
The Stand Up! Records label released Brody’s first five CDs between 2009 and 2012. In 2014 Rooftop Comedy produced and an overlong digital-only album, Dylan Goes Electric.
In his years as a club comic, Dylan worked in venues fall over the world, sharing the stage with some of the comedy world’s biggest stars including: Adam Sandler, Dennis Miller, Jon Lovitz, Larry Miller, Norm McDonald, Louie Anderson, Richard Belzer, Larry David, and Jerry Seinfeld. In those days, George Carlin once told him he was “a very funny, young political comic.” He has appeared at M.I.T., at Sarah Lawrence College’s vast Reisinger Concert Hall and served as Northfield Mount Hermon School’s first ever Artist in Residence.
