Happy Birthday Mitch Hedberg


Not the best I could have done, but definitely not the worst either.

This is the first famous person whose death had me slightly choked up when I heard the news (the only other one being George Carlin last summer). I was lucky enough to see him on his home turf here in the Twin Cities just months before he passed away. I remember almost not going, but had the feeling that I'd regret it if I didn't. Needless to say, he was funnier than hell. He would have been 41 today.

Good one zack. I was just watching one of his old comedy central specials the other day. I could watch it a million times and it would still crack me up every time.

Some really solid work here, Zack!
Fonda & Cobain are my faves.
Finally saw Hedburg on Comedy Central-brilliant...sad to hear he died.
You're lucky to have sen him live.
