that really sucks!~

I was a fan...Mitch had a great act.

his dark sun glasses and hair in his eyes, his drug related material about himself...and his unique voice.

...all the good ones die young.

:crazy:



RIP Mitch!~

dunno bout that. His mom said he had a heart condition all his life. Although, I'm sure the drugs made it worse. Mitch mentioned a lot about coke, acid, downers, pot in his act, but I never knew he did heroin until I read some of those artciles on him. Dude got arrested in texas for heroin and ended up in the hospital... Supposedly almost collapsed on stage in Phoenix last fall while asking the audience for drugs.... I had no idea he was kinda going out of control the past year... sucks...

Damned sad to hear it. He was my favorite comedian. Didn't know hes was on rough times. Thanks for the news, though.

Sail on, brother Mitch Hedburg.

I think he was an acquired taste, not for everyone.  I definitely acquired that taste.

He'll be missed :frown:

This is really sad news.

He was one of the only truely great comedians still alive.

I only hope that his death gets more coverage than the pope's. Fat chance.

Seriously.  Everyone's been expecting the pope to die.  The real news with him is that he's lived as long as he has.  This, on the other hand, is a sudden and unexpected tragedy.  RIP Mitch. :sad:

The Pope = religious leader to millions around the world

Hedburg = semi-obscure comic who once had a special on Comedy Central

I wouldn't be surprised if the pope's death gets a little more coverage.

Ya, but Mitch was a stoner with some great jokes, which makes him 100x cooler than His Holiness?.

Mitch was much cooler than the pope. He certainly deserves the coverage.

If only your holiness was gauged by your coolness....

Don't you wish it was as simple as that, one Man keeping people down.

Who's to say it's not several Men... hundreds, or thousands.

Mitch's death made me feel sad, kind of cheated, suprised, made me think about a lot of things.

The pope's deterioriating condition made me giggle.
