Comedian Hears Sweet Sound Of Silence

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – A Los Angeles-based comic is embracing the sound of silence.

Dylan Brody got his start doing politically-themed stand up comedy, but for the past three years, Brody’s become a long- form storyteller, spinning humorous autobiographical stories of his own quirky take on the world.

Brody’s 10-minute stories, including “Xenophobia and the Jewish Druid,” and “Love and Judgement” – in which he recalls being hit on by gay men at a West Hollywood coffee shop – aren’t your typical laugh-a-minute monologues.

Brody says, “It’s not a laugh every 15 seconds – it’s about a world view I’ve developed. It’s about pacifism, adoration for my fellow humans – all those things.”

And while most comics would cringe at the sound of crickets, for Brody, silence is golden.

He says, “It took me a while to realize that silence is okay. The comic in me wants to panic, but I have to remind myself that it means the audience is with me.”

Brody’s show, Dylan Brody’s Thinking Allowed, hits the stage Tuesday (Jan. 15) at the Melrose IMPROV at 8 PM.
