Stand-up comedian Brody Stevens was found dead Friday after an apparent suicide at his home in Los Angeles.

Law enforcement sources confirm to TMZ … Brody was found hanging in his home Friday afternoon, shortly after 1 PM. 

Brody — who co-created his own Comedy Central series, “Brody Stevens: Enjoy It!” with his friend Zach Galifianakis — had struggled with mental health issues in the past. He was hospitalized in 2011 after suffering a bipolar episode. 

He was a mainstay at huge comedy events like the Montreal and Vancouver Comedy Festivals — and just 2 days ago he was at the Festival of Friendship in Burbank.

Later that night he did a set — which appears to have been his last — at the famed Comedy Store on the Sunset Strip.
