Positive Energy: Fundraiser in Honor of Brody Stevens (Presented by Comedians You Should Know)

On February 22nd, 2019, Los Angeles-based comedian, Brody Stevens, passed away at the age of 48. If you had the privilege of seeing him perform live, you're aware his credits include: The Hangover, The Hangover II, a regular at The Comedy Store in LA, and the warm-up guy for all your favorite West Coast TV shows. He was a unique talent who was beloved by his fans and fellow comedians.

Over the last few years of his life, Brody became close with many Chicago Cubs' coaches and players, often attending their spring training games in Arizona, regular season games at Wrigley Field, and live events.

"He's always been a fixture in spring training," Cubs' World Series-winning manager, Joe Maddon, said of Brody. "He played ball at Arizona State. Everyone talks about how funny he was, but he's just a nice man. He had a great heart, a kind heart and were really going to miss the conversation.

Because of Brody's frequent trips to Chicago, CYSK was lucky enough to have him drop by to perform on several occasions. It was always special and no performance was the same.

To honor him on the anniversary of his passing, CYSK is holding a fundraiser for AFSP (American Foundation for Suicide Prevention.) Each show will feature the best in Chicago stand-up comedy. 100% of ticket sales will be donated to AFSP.
