Any Mitch Hedberg fans?

I just read some of this guy's stuff a few days ago. For me, it's "milk out of the nose" funny. Then, looking into it, I find out he's already dead. Bummer.

Check some quotes here:

Lots of bad words, but otherwise pretty clean and hilarious.

Foosball messed up my perception of soccer. I thought you had to kick the ball and then spin 'round and round. I can't do a back flip, much less several... simultaneously with two other guys... that look just like me.

You know when they have a fishing show on TV? They catch the fish and then let it go. They don't want to eat the fish; they just want to make it late for something. "Why were you late?" "I got caught!" "Bull, let me see the inside of your lip!"


I want to go fishing and catch a fishstick. That would be convenient. I could easily get a job working for Mrs. Paul's. Just put me in a boat with some boxes and I'll return them to the freezer section of your local grocery store.

I want to climb a mountain — not so I can get to the top — cause I want to hang out at base camp. That scene's fun as crap. You sleep in a colorful tent, you grow a beard, you drink hot chocolate, you walk around... "Hey, you going to the top?" — "Soon."

Big fan of his.
Didn't really hear much about him until about a month or so before he died.
Get both of his albums.

Yeah, I've been a fan for quite a while.

I was going to see him last time he came to Detroit.

I wish I would have, it was the last time he came to Detroit.

Check out Stephen Lynch, too. (they were touring together for that show, would have been so awesome)

Definitely a fan. First saw him on Comedy Central a couple of years ago. Very, very funny.



I sit on a man’s back, choking him and making
him carry me, and yet assure myself and others
that I am very sorry for him and wish to ease his
lot by all possible means — except by getting off
his back. - Leo Tolstoy, novelist and Philosopher

I was just thinking about some ducks outside who wanted Sun Chips!

I have the uncut version of the Comedy Central Presents episode. (As far as I can tell, it's not a for sale item, so if anyone would like a copy of it, let me know).

Saw him and Lynch a month or so before he died. Funny, but definitely something was "wrong" with both of them at the time. They said it was "medication".

I have both Mitch Hedberg Uncut and Mitch live on the Late Show here.
[ninjaproduction.com]

I do have a ton of bandwidth, but try not to share the link with too many people.
(ie, try to keep it to this forum. If you have a <local> friend who would like a copy, burn a CD for them.)

Enjoy!

Thank you Grim Ninja.

I never met Mitch but I know people who worked with him. They said he was a really nice guy.

I just watched the special. Apparently I never had before (I record/download a TON of media, sometimes I lose track). Great stuff. He really starts to bomb in the beginning, though. Picks up and does great at the end. Kinda cool to watch it and see how much editing Comedy Central really did to make the actual aired special.

I should see what else I can find that I might be able to put up.


As for the file/speed:
It's hosted with Dreamhost. I've only got 1032 GB of transfer this month, so... you know, use it sparingly...

I'm kidding, of course. I have plenty of bandwidth so long as the link doesn't get out to the general internet. (a few dozen downloads doesn't bother me a bit, but I don't want the site to receive hundreds, ect)

So far, Dreamhost has been great, except for e-mail, which was a bit iffy during the first week, but seems to be fine now. I'd recommend them for most people.

Yeah he was great. We're fans here too. Shame he went so soon, regardless of the circumstances.

Actually, that's not rare at all.
it's available on the CD/DVD combo "Mitch All Together."
