NEW YORK, April 15, 2013 - The laughter and drama and the emotional highs and lows of Brody Stevens' journey through life and the world of stand-up comedy is coming to the small screen. COMEDY CENTRAL has ordered its first-ever dramatic comedy series, "Brody Stevens: Enjoy It!," it was announced today by Kent Alterman, President, Content Development and Original Programming, COMEDY CENTRAL. Stevens also recently shot a stand-up set for the COMEDY CENTRAL series "The Half Hour" that will air this summer, as well as the 17-episode digital series "Push and Believe" for CC: Studios, where he spreads his legendary positive energy with 17 comics -- himself included -- as they prep to shoot their own "The Half Hour" specials.

Described as "the most fearless guy around" by his close friend Zach Galifianakis, "Brody Stevens: Enjoy It!" is executive produced by Stevens, Galifianakis, Mike Gibbons, Generate's Dave Rath and Funny Or Die and directed by Dean Fleisher-Camp. The order includes the six existing episodes of the HBO Digital documentary-style series, which will be expanded to full half-hours, as well as six all-new episodes, and is slated to premiere this summer.

"Brody may be fearless, but we are terrified... in a good way," said Alterman.

"I'm as excited as I can be while on 300 milligrams of Lamictal," said Stevens. "My life has always been about POSITIVE ENERGY and I'm looking forward to all of Comedy Central's fans following me on Twitter at @BrodyismeFriend. America -- get ready to PUSH AND BELIEVE!"

"Brody Stevens: Enjoy It!" is a documentary series that follows the emotional rollercoaster life of stand-up comic Brody Stevens, the funniest comedian you've never heard of. The camera tracks Stevens as he pulls his life back together after suffering a mental breakdown that is witnessed by his fans and the world via Twitter. After spending time in the UCLA psych ward, Stevens is back on his meds and trying to mend his relationships as well as revive his stand-up and film career. He makes the rounds in LA, with pal Galifianakis and others in tow, including Sarah Silverman, Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim, trying to reconnect and reconcile with the close friends he let down. The series combines a mix of live stand-up footage, documentary footage and animation to enhance Stevens' energetic and dramatic life story. Jim Sharp and Ian Friedman are the Executives in Charge of Production for COMEDY CENTRAL.

Known as "a comedian's comedian," Stevens began doing stand-up in the mid-90s in Seattle, working at The Comedy Underground and hosting the "Brody Stevens Cable Access TV Show." After spending some time living and performing in New York City, Stevens made his way to Los Angeles and has since performed on COMEDY CENTRAL's "Premium Blend" and CBS's "The Late, Late Show" and appeared in a variety of projects including the feature films "The Hangover," "The Hangover Part II," "Due Date," Sarah Silverman's "Jesus is Magic," and "R2PC: Road to Park City" at the Slamdance Film Festival.
