"Do not eat mobile home cheese in a tornado. It could be disastrous."

Mitch was hilarious.

That guy once smoked movie pot with Peter Frampton, the only thing better than that would be smoking actual pot with Peter Frampton.

I bought a donut and they gave me a receipt. I don't need that. I give you money, you give me the donut, end of transaction, we don't need to bring ink and paper into this - Mitch Hedberg ·

Still one of the funniest bits ever!

I started using "We don't need to bring ink and paper into this" in my daily life hoping someone would get it. Not yet, but I'm hopeful.

No wait, maybe we have been wrong about Mitch all these years and he is not funny.  Let us find out exactly who we should look to for our humor if Mitch was not funny.   I am sure tom baker's scarf comedians of choice will blow our minds.

If the linked video doesn't do it for you, Hedberg isn't your cup of tea. None of us owe it to you to convince you otherwise.

He was absolutely awesome to listen to... but really hard to watch.

Kind of the poster child for utterly tragic, but completely predictable deaths.

Giving you a chance to dazzle us with the comedians that you find to be funny, instead you are giving evidence to what we already assumed, that you are just in here trolling.  I like Mitch Hedberg, I like Brian Regan, I like Lewis Black, Anthony Jeselnik is one of my favorites, Robin Williams, Katherine Ryan, George Carlin, Bill Hicks...  See how easy it is to list what you like, I know my tastes are not the same as others, but they are mine and I can support them...so much easier than just coming into a thread and saying "I don't like them, mic drop" like a common troll.

It was hard for me to watch him because while I was laughing, my heart was breaking for him. RIP Mitch, my man.

RIP Mitch.

Get yourself a frozen banana, because you might want a regular banana later.

His actual material ranged from hilarious to pedestrian, but his delivery and presence were consistently great. Like all the greats, he had his own totally unique style of spinning out a premise and wording a line. An otherwise mediocre joke would always be funny simply because he was telling it Mitch style.

Susan'sLittleAdamsApple: That guy once smoked movie pot with Peter Frampton, the only thing better than that would be smoking actual pot with Peter Frampton.


Sorry, but I gotta correct that. The real quote is hilarious:

"I had a small scene in a movie with Peter Frampton. And we had to smoke pot for our scene, but it was fake pot! ... But I got to smoke fake pot with Peter Frampton, that's a cool story. It's as cool as smoking real pot with a guy who looks like Peter Frampton. I've done that way more."

He's ok sometimes, but he likes to push the edgy to annoying levels and lots of his bits are all absurdism with very little actual humor.

His podcast does that, but he does fairly deep dives on interesting topics. I'm learning about Australia's Emu War today. It's pretty fun.

Until I read your post, I always thought Mitch was agreeing with the other person in the conversation.

"I'm for 'em!"
"Well this club is for 'em!"


"Formed" makes a lot more sense, and it's especially funny (to me) bc my kids and I do this bit regularly, and I have apparently been saying it wrong the whole time.

CSB1: I got to see him on a comedy central tour with Lewis Black, Dave Attell and Mike Birbiglia. The spot light guy started messing with Mitch halfway through the set, so he decided to do the rest of his act from just behind the curtain. He was still goddamn funny.

CSB2: I had tickets to see his show the day he died.

Mitch had a unique style and delivery.  Not everyone enjoyed his comedy.  However it's a pretty fun way to find out that something is seriously farking wrong with humorometer.

His line delivery just helps his jokes so much. Try not to hear them in his voice!

"Dogs are forever in the pushup position."

"I like to play blackjack. I'm not addicting to gambling... I'm addicted to sitting in a semicircle."

"I think Big Foot is blurry, that's the problem."

"I used to do drugs. I still do, but I used to, too."

I heard somewhere that he used to do drugs.
