Saint Paul and actually MN in ge real is not conservative at all. It’s one of the most liberal places in the area it’s in, surrounded by Red states but we are not. Saint Paul and Mpls especially, where I live, is very open about drug use, homosexuality, different races, music scenes and art, different types of people and lifestyles. Maybe people think it’s not because of its location in the country but Mitch would fit in here fine. He is buried in Woodbury MN is he not?

I never thought Hedberg was funny, but that heroin overdose made me chuckle.
Michael H (7 days ago)
That “baked potato” joke he did is one of the best I’ve ever heard! It was as much about his delivery, as the jokes themselves with Mitch.

Uhm.....minneapolis/st paul are hardly conservative, especially compared to the rest of the mid west.

Dude was way way way ahead of his times. He’s truly one of the greatest most laid back funniest comedians. It takes time to absorb his comedy but once you do it man you’re addicted.

If Mitch was still alive he would be at his prime right now.

yeah and maybe if the gov't mandated heroine use he'd still be alive making us laugh... NOT ALL PPL ARE GOING TO BECOME ADDICTS EVEN IF "IT'S GOING TO BE LEGALIZED", it just puts more money into "our" system

Nex Tyrannis (19 days ago)
The way Mitch critiqued his own jokes on stage is one reason he was so funny.

All of your "untold truth of ______" videos are usually 100% truths that have been told, and are well known facts. Maybe try putting some things in there that aren't well known easily found facts.

One of the greatest who stalled on stage, stalled on film, stalled on tv, so overall he’s not really as great as you imagine. He may have connected with a minority but he’s not up there with the greatest. PS when the coroner says OD it’s not for their own benefit, it’s a clinical assessment of the body they are presented with, they don’t throw all the possibilities up in the air and pick the first one that lands.

I love Seinfeld the tv show, but I never laughed at any of Jerry Seinfeld's standup. Not sure why they're saying "The next Seinfeld"

I don't get what people saw in this drug addict
Veronique Ashlynn (27 days ago)
Had NO idea about his leg, omg! And he's infinitely funnier than Jerry.
Veronique Ashlynn (27 days ago)
I only found out about him after he was gone, about ten years ago. Terrifically funny and while I have no idea if this is true, he always seems to have a sweetness too. We lose too many talented people to drugs, dammit.
rumneyjoe (27 days ago)
Louis C.K?! What kind of comparison is that? Rape or no rape?
Joe Uehlein (1 month ago)
Death by drugs is simply suicide. He really wasn't funny. That is why he never hit it big. Again simple.
karend99143 (1 month ago)
I don’t usually believe in the press, but I could swear I read somewhere that Mitch planned on committing suicide once he made it big or before he hit 30yrs old!

Saw this guy a few times on cable. I think you could say he was one of the "funniest" but ascribing greatness to him would be a bit of a stretch. He just wasn't around long enough to have that kind of impact. Sad to hear of his passing, though; a life lost at that early age is always a tragedy.

My 23 yr old grandson died from a drug od a month ago. Still waiting on the toxicology report. Such a waste. I've been clean and sober since Jun 10 87 and tried to help him by suggesting NA meetings. Not for him he said. Oh well.
Never found him funny at all . He was a one liner rim shot kinda guy. Not a fan of that stuff. Too bad he died tho rip Mitch

This was a loving synopsis of a beautiful man. I miss him. "If you're ever lost in the woods, fuck it. Build a house! Well I was lost but now I live here. I have severely improved my predicament."

Be hospitalized for drug use should be your last wake up call before death, if you don't get in then, I have no sympathy for you.
screw the new seinfeld

Truly an anomaly and I can relate to that. People who are deep and troubled have a vulnerability. Before his time.... a hidden genius

He was spectacularly one of a kind. Talented beyond talented.

He was a common sense comedian. He took every day things and made you think about it. My favorite is “gift cards are stupid.......you take cash......that’s accepted everywhere.......I don’t need to finish the joke”

Great comedian tho he may be, doing drugs, especially heroine makes him a dumb ass and ultimately killed him. So sad, drugs claim so many.
dionne (1 month ago)
He's in this animated series I watch every night going to sleep. It's called Dr. Katz.
I worked on the pipeline in Alaska and used to listen to his albums with my crew all day. We listened to them over and over. He died right around that time and we were all devastated.

Loved his material and kind heart, however i don’t mourn the deaths of people who are self destructive. I can’t stand when people say things like “they were taken from us too soon” when Mitch is the one who took himself from us too soon, not some unknown force in the universe. I both love Mitch and am upset with him. Drugs destroy your body and are incredibly dangerous and people still downplay them all the time as if it’s always just a casual good time to take drugs. Then when someone great dies from using them, we all conveniently forget the elephant in the room when we remember,bee them: they chose to do drugs and drugs did what they always do. The way i pay homage to great talents like his is permeating thoughts like the ones in this comment, hoping someone who was going to use drugs will read this and realize there is another way to enjoy a healthy life no matter what you’re struggling with. Drugs truly are not the answer. Mitch had such a kind soul, but unfortunately poor life choices can negate a lot more good we could do. Imagine how many other young comedians he would have helped if he stayed away from drugs in the first place. I hope he’s in a better place now.

Intelligent comedy where his lines weren't punch lines and cliches. The average guy had to think twice or three times to get his jokes. "I use to too" is genius.

I based my high school friendships on reaction to Hedberg's comedy. Sure enough, the people that said "this is stupid" are either in prison or will be working jobs they hate until they die (or go to prison).

I know his best friend Ed "The Possum Man" Carnevale. Very few people know of the Mtv series started for Mitch Hedberg. It was a reality show. Ed still has the VHS copy of the show. It was never aired. American Hearts Radio Entertainment Network released the footage on an show interviewing Ed.

What the F? I feel like I just "jumped" on to another timeline. I have never heard of this incredible comedian before and was shocked to find out he's been gone for almost 15 years. I'm having a reverse Mandela effect moment.
