Remembering Mitch

Even as a kid, I knew funny.  I was raised on the Smothers Brothers, Spike Jones, and Bill Cosby.  I remember buying my first comedy album.  In the 6th grade I bought the cassette tape "Robin Williams - Reality...What a Concept".  I wore that sucker out.  Before long, I could recite it line for line.  I can remember making copies of Steve Martin, Cheech and Chong, and George Carlin.  Comedy has always been a big part of my life.

One of my favorites was Mitch Hedberg.  I first saw Mitch on Comedy Central Presents, and I was hooked.  I scoured the peer to peer networks for any clips.  He released 2 albums, "Mitch All Together" and "Strategic Grill Locations", and made many appearances on David Letterman, Howard Stern, and Craig Killborn.  Time magazine called Mitch "the next Jerry Seinfeld" (a rather heavy burden to carry, I would imagine).  Mitch made no secret of his recreational drug use, such as "I used to do drugs...I still do, but I used to too".  On March 28th 2005 Mitch was found dead in his hotel room, initially reported as heart failure, but subsequently it was a reported drug overdose.

Mitch was one of a kind and will never be replaced.
