Thanks for the laughs and trying so hard, Mitch. I've got severe stage fright too, and I sometimes play music in front of people. You inspire me.

That one act of kindness from Mitch to Hannibal helped boost his career... now gets caught being drunk and spewing hatred for white folks. nailed it Hannibal. stand up dude.
BodhiZaffa (22 days ago)
lol @ Hannibal saying somebody compared him to Hedburg. Mitch is a legend. Hannibal is a hack who I never even heard of until he started making his Cosby jokes which I still havent heard.

This guy was funny. I barely bought my 2nd cd befor he passed.
Ben Autin (24 days ago)
So sad his life ended so short; his brand of comedy would have been a welcome departure from the content of today's best comics. I am not saying they're not funny; I am just acknowledging that Hedberg's style was irrefutably his own and he his success, had he lived longer, would have been tenfold.

Saint Paul and actually MN in ge real is not conservative at all. It’s one of the most liberal places in the area it’s in, surrounded by Red states but we are not. Saint Paul and Mpls especially, where I live, is very open about drug use, homosexuality, different races, music scenes and art, different types of people and lifestyles. Maybe people think it’s not because of its location in the country but Mitch would fit in here fine. He is buried in Woodbury MN is he not?

I never thought Hedberg was funny, but that heroin overdose made me chuckle.
Michael H (1 month ago)
That “baked potato” joke he did is one of the best I’ve ever heard! It was as much about his delivery, as the jokes themselves with Mitch.
machination3e (1 month ago)
Uhm.....minneapolis/st paul are hardly conservative, especially compared to the rest of the mid west.

Dude was way way way ahead of his times. He’s truly one of the greatest most laid back funniest comedians. It takes time to absorb his comedy but once you do it man you’re addicted.

If Mitch was still alive he would be at his prime right now.

yeah and maybe if the gov't mandated heroine use he'd still be alive making us laugh... NOT ALL PPL ARE GOING TO BECOME ADDICTS EVEN IF "IT'S GOING TO BE LEGALIZED", it just puts more money into "our" system

Nex Tyrannis (1 month ago)
The way Mitch critiqued his own jokes on stage is one reason he was so funny.

All of your "untold truth of ______" videos are usually 100% truths that have been told, and are well known facts. Maybe try putting some things in there that aren't well known easily found facts.

Gavin Johnson (1 month ago)
One of the greatest who stalled on stage, stalled on film, stalled on tv, so overall he’s not really as great as you imagine. He may have connected with a minority but he’s not up there with the greatest. PS when the coroner says OD it’s not for their own benefit, it’s a clinical assessment of the body they are presented with, they don’t throw all the possibilities up in the air and pick the first one that lands.

I love Seinfeld the tv show, but I never laughed at any of Jerry Seinfeld's standup. Not sure why they're saying "The next Seinfeld"

Had NO idea about his leg, omg! And he's infinitely funnier than Jerry.
Veronique Ashlynn (1 month ago)
I only found out about him after he was gone, about ten years ago. Terrifically funny and while I have no idea if this is true, he always seems to have a sweetness too. We lose too many talented people to drugs, dammit.
rumneyjoe (1 month ago)
Louis C.K?! What kind of comparison is that? Rape or no rape?
Joe Uehlein (1 month ago)
Death by drugs is simply suicide. He really wasn't funny. That is why he never hit it big. Again simple.
karend99143 (1 month ago)
I don’t usually believe in the press, but I could swear I read somewhere that Mitch planned on committing suicide once he made it big or before he hit 30yrs old!

Russ Gallagher (2 months ago)
Saw this guy a few times on cable. I think you could say he was one of the "funniest" but ascribing greatness to him would be a bit of a stretch. He just wasn't around long enough to have that kind of impact. Sad to hear of his passing, though; a life lost at that early age is always a tragedy.

My 23 yr old grandson died from a drug od a month ago. Still waiting on the toxicology report. Such a waste. I've been clean and sober since Jun 10 87 and tried to help him by suggesting NA meetings. Not for him he said. Oh well.

Never found him funny at all . He was a one liner rim shot kinda guy. Not a fan of that stuff. Too bad he died tho rip Mitch

This was a loving synopsis of a beautiful man. I miss him. "If you're ever lost in the woods, fuck it. Build a house! Well I was lost but now I live here. I have severely improved my predicament."

Be hospitalized for drug use should be your last wake up call before death, if you don't get in then, I have no sympathy for you.

Truly an anomaly and I can relate to that. People who are deep and troubled have a vulnerability. Before his time.... a hidden genius

He was a common sense comedian. He took every day things and made you think about it. My favorite is “gift cards are stupid.......you take cash......that’s accepted everywhere.......I don’t need to finish the joke”

Great comedian tho he may be, doing drugs, especially heroine makes him a dumb ass and ultimately killed him. So sad, drugs claim so many.
