Mr. Brody began performing stand-up comedy on the open-mic circuit in New York the summer after he finished high school. During his sophomore year at Sarah Lawrence College, the world famous IMPROVisation in Hell’s Kitchen accepted him as a “developing regular,” where he began to hone his stand-up skills and develop his onstage persona. The great George Carlin, whom Dylan admired as a child, once called to encourage his work, referring to Brody as a “very funny young political comic.”
Brody studied at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts in London, England. During this time Dylan worked London’s comedy clubs and developed a loyal following at the Canal Café Theater where he performed weekly. Returning to America, Dylan worked comedy clubs from New York to Los Angeles, where he shared the stage with some of the comedy world’s biggest stars including: Adam Sandler, Jeff Foxworthy, Dennis Miller, John Lovitz, Larry Miller, Norm McDonald, Louie Anderson, Richard Belzer, Larry David and Jerry Seinfeld. He has written jokes used by dozens of comedians, including Jay Leno in his monologues on The Tonight Show.
Mr. Brody wrote his first play while still in grade school. He went on to become an award-winning playwright, screenwriter and twice published novelist. One of his latest plays, Mother May I, won the prestigious Stanley Drama Award for playwriting. His novels, A Tale Of A Hero And The Song Of Her Sword and The Warm Hello, were published, in 1997 and 1999, respectively. His screenplay, Spells of Grey, was a semi-finalist for the coveted Nicholl Fellowship in Screenwriting.
For more than two decades in television, radio and live performance, Dylan Brody has been making people laugh around the world. He has evolved into an artful humorist with an engaging style all his own. Dylan can be heard regularly on KYCY Radio in San Francisco, California, sharing his thoughts and his unique perspective of life and the world around us.
