American stand-up comedian and actor Brody Stevens was found dead at his San Fernando Valley home Friday afternoon from an apparent suicide, police say. He was 48 years old.

Authorities say the death is being investigated as a suicide by hanging. They say Stevens was found unresponsive at about 1 p.m. local time at his home in the 12300 block of Magnolia Boulevard in Valley Village.

Stevens has reportedly struggled with depression and bipolar disorder.

The 48-year-old comic had earned acting credits in movies such as “The Hangover,” and “Due Date,” as well as co-created the series “Brody Stevens: Enjoy it!”

Stevens’ representative said: “Brody was an inspiring voice who was a friend to many in the comedy community. He pushed creative boundaries and his passion for his work and his love of baseball were contagious. He was beloved by many and will be greatly missed.”

Tributes began pouring in Friday from fellow comedians like Patton Oswalt, Tom Arnold and Whitney Cummings.
