4. He picked up the Steven Wright torch and ran with it.
Comedy of the absurd.

Jokes about Kit-Kat candy bars and how the letters are embossed into the bar and "somebody owes me some chocolate."

Wondering why no one cares about the DuFrane party.

Mitch was one funny S.O.B.

He'll be missed, but I'm sure he's already trading one-liners with Rodney in that great big dive bar in the sky.

:toast:

7. Dufresne, party of two. Dufresne, party of two.
Where the hell are the Dufresne's?

Life is a little less funnier today.

9. Aw, hell -- he was HILARIOUS
I never laughed harder than the first time I saw him on Comedy Central.

"I'm really mad at turkeys. I go into the deli and see turkey sausage and turkey pastrami. I'm like, 'Dude, just be yourself'"

"You know escalators never really become broken, they just become stairs. Instead of 'Temporarily Out of Order" the sign should say 'Temporarily Stairs'"

11. Best. Comic. Ever.
Well, at least one of the most unappreciated comics ever. Very very funny guy, great delivery. His jokes don't read well, but when Mitch told them, they're hilarious.

13. Get some of his stuff online or buy a CD
He was simply a genius. I discovered him last year and I never laughed so hard at any comedian as Mitch Hedberg.

I'm truly shocked and saddened. I had hoped to catch him on the West Coast one of these days.
