Comedy Centerfold: Brian Moody

Each week, or maybe every other week if we’re lazy, we’ll feature a Dallas Comedy House performer and get to know him or her a little better by using questions that Playboy centerfolds are usually asked. If you’d like to volunteer to be a centerfold before we come for you, email us and let us know. The only requirement is that we need a full-length, CLOTHED, photo of yourself for, you know, the centerfold part. Brian MoodyThis edition of Comedy Centerfold features Brian Moody, who you can currently see perform in the troupe Samurai Drunk. Or you can see him perform the opening of beer cans and pouring of drinks behind the bar at DCH. That is actually where he completed this Q&A, in fact. Thank you, Brian, for not spilling any beer on it. Brian also took the time to add more questions and answers. Guys, he really wants you to get to know him.

Hometown? Mansfield, Texas, the town with most high school improv troupes per capita in the state.

Guilty Pleasures? Kanye West, Kevin Costner, Bad Action Movies, Theft

Ambitions? To make a living doing things I would do anyway. Basically, I want to eventually get paid to do things i would do for free. If i could make money sleeping and eating, I would consider myself highly successful.

Best Concert? Pukkelpop 2009. I made some amazing friends at that festival and probably consider that the four best consecutive days of my life.

Favorite Book? Another Roadside Attraction by Tom Robbins. Its extremely bizarre, yet poignant and informative. And (spoiler) they steal Jesus' body from the Vatican catacombs. That alone is worth the price of admission.

Favorite Movie? Everything is Illuminated. Elijah Wood is highly underrated, and Eugene Hutz needs to be in more movies. He is fantastic.

Favorite TV Show? Community. It is smart and stupid humor at the same time. However, the best show ever made is by far The Wire.

Pets? I would love a dog, but am responsible enough to know that I am far too busy for the responsibility of having one.

Foods I Crave? Gas station/food truck tacos with green salsa and a squirt of lime. I'm very specific about my food that is horrible for me. I also enjoy Taco bell's beefy crunch burrito. I'm a huge fan of crap mexican food.

Where Would You Never Want to Live? Branson, Missouri. It seems like the place where people go to let their dreams die.

People I Admire? Donald Glover, Ian Mckaye (because of his contributions to music, not because of the straight edge movement), Louis CK

Soup or Salad? Frankly, I feel like that is a highly inappropriate question.

What Really Chaps Your Hide? The name Kyler is a stupid name. I would never name my child that.

What is Your Favorite Kind of Kebab? Doener Kebab, a Turkish specialty found in Germany.

Dream Role?  I prefer biscuits with creamy gravy.

How Would You Stop an Intruder Breaking Into Your House? Roundhouse kick.

Favorite Song to Sing? "I Gotta Man" by Positive K. It's so damn sassy.

Good First Date Idea?  I usually come up with them after the date is confirmed and plan based on the girl. I am definitely not into the dinner and a movie first date. I like to be spontaneous and fun. (source: Brian Moody's profile on
