So who else is a fan? Mitch Hedberg's been my all-time favorite comedian ever since I saw his Comedy Central special when I was 11, and it was a real loss when he died. I think his material is great, and it doesn't rely so much on swearing or profanity, so it translates well onto basic cable. Mitch's death was even more of a tragedy because I read he was working on his first HBO special, which was one of his dreams as a comedian...

"Mr. Pibb is a replica of Dr Pepper, but it's a bullshit replica, 'cause dude didn't even get his degree."

"When I was a boy, I laid in my twin-size bed, wondering where my brother was."

"If you find yourself lost in the woods, **** it, build a house. "Well, I was lost, but now I live here. I have severely improved my predicament!" - RIP Mitch

Probably the best jokes I've ever heard, but I didn't care for his actual performance.

That guy is awesome, me and my sister quote him heavily in all situations.

"He said, 'Hey, you got a lot of nerve', I said 'Hey, you got a lot of cranium accessories.' You guys are a smart audience. For my dumb audience, I have to say, 'You got a lot of shit on your head'."

he's the greatest comedian imo. He did something new, fresh, and different compared to other comedians. Was real sad when I read the news about him dying
#20
It's odd.. the reason I got into him was because, before I even heard of him, quite a few people told me "You would love Mitch Hedberg, you have the same sense of humour."

Quite a few people list funny as one of my top attributes. It's true.. the kind of random remarks I make in real life are like.. a much underdeveloped Mitch Hedberg. Mind you, that's actually a point for uniqueness.

I can never get any humour to come through if I think of the joke in advance, or online.. only when something is happening in front of me can I suddenly formulate something amusing.

Mitch is totally awesome. It is indeed a real shame he died. One of my favourite jokes of his is the Smacky the frog bit....If you're a fan you'll know what im talking about.

I cant believe he was gonna make an HBO special, that would've been so great RIP

I loved Mitch's comedy, but then he went and killed himself like an idiot right when he was getting famous.

He my favourite comedian and the onyl one I find genuinley funny on all occasions. I quote him a lot too and I've managed to say one or two jokes in his style without realising it...I was just trying to be funny, and I succeeded. You know, my friend said hey is that Mitch hedburg?

And I said, no he's dead - because I hadn't realised he was asking about the joke I had previosly told him.

there's a difference between consciously deciding to kill yourself and accidently OD'ing on something. Nobody says they want to die like that when they first take drugs, and everyone makes mistakes. I dont think it's fair to lump drug-related deaths with actual suicides because for all you know, they genuinely wanted to live but couldn't get over their addiction. Taking drugs is stupid but its not the same as deciding to abandon your loved ones forever and just kill yourself

I never heard of this guy until I read this thread. I went to youtube and watch his special. He was a really funny guy. I enjoyed his act. Its sad that he has died.

I like Rice. rice is great if you're hungry and want 2000 of something.

That one was on a comedy central preview, though. For anyone who didn't know who he was, but saw the add.

I slept over my friends house once and she said I had to sleep on the floor. I said, damn gravity! Got me down again. You know how bad I want to sleep on the walls!

And finally,

Ducks love bread, but they do not have the ability to go out and buy a loaf. And that is hte biggest joke on ducks.

All matter is merely energy condensed to a slow vibration. We our all one consciousness experiencing itself subjectively. There's no such thing as death, life is only a dream and we our the imagination of ourselves.
