Dylan Brody got his start doing politically-themed stand up comedy, but for the past three years, Brodys become a long- form storyteller, spinning humorous autobiographical stories of his own quirky take on the world.
Brodys 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 arent your typical laugh-a-minute monologues.
Brody says, Its not a laugh every 15 seconds its about a world view Ive developed. Its 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.
Brodys show, Dylan Brodys Thinking Allowed, hits the stage Tuesday (Jan. 15) at the Melrose IMPROV at 8 PM.
