R.I.P. Mitch Hedberg One of the best new comedians has passed away according to Comedy Central. Discussed previously here, a Wiki page has more.

Discussed on the Josh Sneed website, the rumors of heroin overdose appear. Suckage. Rock on Mr. Hedberg.

  • . . . And his website.
  • God Damn, Mitch was a funny mother fucker. I shall miss him.
  • Fuck! .
  • Holy shit! He was one of my all-time favorite comedians. This is a tragedy.
  • wow. and he's still appearing April 6 at Emory University. nothing stops him.
  • Hedberg died early Wednesday morning in a New Jersey hotel room. He was 37. A medical examiner hasn't issued findings, but Hedberg's family is told he suffered a heart attack. His wife was with him.
  • SideDish - at least he doesn't have to worry about dying on stage. I'm pretty bummed by this news - why do I only hear about great new comics when they die? Where do folks go to discover the next Bill Hicks or Richard Pryor?
  • "They were having a contest to see if you could guess how many jellybeans were in the jar . . . I don't want to guess but c'mon man, lemme just have some."
  • "I don't have a girlfriend. But I do know a woman who'd be mad at me for saying that."
  • I opened up a container of yogurt, and under the lid it said "Please Try Again" because they were having a contest I was unaware of. But I thought I might have opened the yogurt wrong...or maybe Yoplait was trying to inspire me, 'c'mon, Mitchell, don't give up. Please try again. A message of inspiration from your friends at Yoplait. Fruit on the bottom, hope on top.
  • I wrote a script and a friend of mine said it was pretty good but I needed to rewrite it. I said fuck that, I'll just make a copy. (from memory so maybe not exactly right. I liked his stuff. This sucks.)
  • Complete and utter shock. .
  • goddamnit, will people just stop dying? first HST, now Mitch [not-so-]Altogether... fuckety fuck fuck fuck.
  • I just came across this quote: "My friend asked me if I wanted a frozen banana, I said 'No, but I want a regular banana later, so, yes.'"
  • "Alcoholism is the only disease you can get yelled at for having: 'Dammit, Otto, you're an alcoholic!' 'Dammit, Otto, you have lupus!' Which of those doesnt sound right?"
  • I saw a wino eating some grapes. I said, "Dude, you have to wait." This blows.
  • "I'm sick of following my dreams. I'm just going to ask them where they're going and hook up with them later." Thanks for the laughs, Mitch. Enjoy those dreams.
  • I rarely enjoy driving steamboats. And yet Schmuck Bucket still lives. How can there be a God?
  • You're God; who would you want entertaining you in heaven? Mitch or Carrot Top? ;)
  • Saw a CC special on Mitch. Gotta say, not that impressed with his stand up. But maybe he was having a bad night.
  • Dr. Katz appearance (Yout00b)
  • Demetri Martin proffered by some in the Blue for the Mitch award. some jokes “I wonder what the most intelligent thing ever said was that started with the word ‘dude.’ ‘Dude, these are isotopes.’ ‘Dude, we removed your kidney. You’re gonna be fine.’ ‘Dude, I am so stoked to win this Nobel Prize. I just wanna thank Kevin, and Turtle, and all my homies.’”
