If you're new, Subscribe! → http://bit.ly/Subscribe-to-Looper Mitch Hedberg was one of the greatest comedians of all time. He might not be a household name like George Carlin or Louis C.K., but he'll always be remembered for his signature style and one-of-a-kind delivery. Unfortunately, before he could truly break through and claim the fame he deserved, Hedberg died of a drug overdose in 2005. Although his time here was sadly cut short, let's take a look at the life of the amazing Mitch Hedberg...

+Frank Brodie Lots of Dead Druggies , maybe one day it'll be you or someone you care about so you can understand the Asshole Statement you Made,

Some none druggie ones. Because to paraphrase Eminem himself, Hedberg is just 'another druggie dead.'

"Minnesota Nice" is so fitting.  Notice how his jokes were never mean in any way, in fact, they were about being nice.  There is a special place in Heaven for Mitch, right next to the Dufresnes!

I had no idea around the time I discovered him on XM radio, that he would be dead a year later. I only learned that he died fairly recently.

“Oh no here comes that frog! I better play dead” 😂 I miss his comedy so much. The world is a less pleasant place to be just by him no longer being in it

Do pharmaceutical pills so you know the dosage everytime , I suggest hydromorphone - closest to heroin u can get unless you turn morphine into H with AAacid ... Never know what is in street heroin or the strength.

It seems like all the geniuses were on heroine. Seems that drug can make you really awesome for a really short amount of time before it kills you.

I always thought Mitch sounded a lot like Steven Wright.
jlmarc01 (20 days ago)
the next Seinfeld, is that a knock against Mitch?
Jack Barrett (23 days ago)
Hedbergs thing was he said he was never gonna give up heroin until he died..his friends offered to put him in rehab, and he declined saying it would be a waste.
Ms V (11 days ago)
Jack Barrett actually I think ‘feminists’ that complain about man spreading etc etc should be sent into an insane asylum. Your Statement just kinda made it look like his friends could have saved him if he would have let them. The thing about statements and opinions In text format, they can’t always be deciphered. Kind of like sarcasm. You can write something really funny but unless you tell them you’re being sarcastic people will think you’re just saying something you believe as truth. Unless u just were fishing for my age, you asking if there was an adult around to explain your statement/opinion kinda made you look like an ass on a high horse, just my opinion
Jack Barrett (12 days ago)
+Ms V Is there an adult there that can explain the distinction between a statement and whatever-the-hell-you-took-it-be? Or are you one of those ugly, uberfeminist milennials looking for an argument? Had I said "Ty Cobbs lifetime batting average was .297", would you have gone apeshit about that, too?
Ms V (12 days ago)
Jack Barrett ‘hell is wrong with u? Rehab doesn’t make money fixing people.
Jack Barrett (14 days ago)
+Ms V 'the hell is wrong with you? It was a statement. There was no intended morality, or social lesson to it.
Ms V (14 days ago)
Jack Barrett and your point is? Tons of people never give up cigarettes or booze..
NeonMusic (24 days ago)
Id never heard of him, i think I remember seeing him on tv but thanks to youtube I’ve discovered him and he’s one of my faves now. I love his view point, at times reminds me of Steven Wright.
Aaron Burr Atwood. (26 days ago)
I think he didn’t pass away but he became Lady Gaga after a DNA/RNA rejuvenation and based sexual reassignment. He is now younger & a female. Look at them side by side.Mitch without his glasses and messy hair looks just like Lady Gaga when she actually looks like a regular ole girl.

Ms V (12 days ago)
zeranzeran life advice? Not sure where that came from.. but if u want some.. here’s one that’ll save everyone a lot of trouble. Don’t worship celebrities. They’re not worth the energy. They’re just used to socially engineer & brainwash the public. Thank you!
zeranzeran (14 days ago)
You go girl. But also wtf are you talking about in the second part? Giving me life advice and shit because I like Seinfeld? Newman?
Ms V (14 days ago)
zeranzeran well yes I do, but not for money. Try not to protect the douche bags that think you’re trash. Just a suggestion

He had clean comedy. But damn he was hilarious. I still watch his videos and I'm still rolling. This story makes me like Mitch that much more!
Mandy D. (1 month ago)
I was supposed to see him, I missed him once and when he was to come through again I passed due to financial issues that I could have worked out I'm sure. So never hold back on doing the things you really want to do, especially if that experience involves another human. Life is so fleeting and I regret thinking I could catch him down the road each time....until his road came to an end and I never got to personally enjoy him and thank him for making me laugh.

mitch was unique. RIP mitch...
My favorite comedian...miss him dearly🌻🙏🌻

Mitch Hedberg helped start Hannibal Burress’ career. Hannibal Buress is the reason the Cosby thing came back up and really kickstarted the whole me too movement, making elite rapists finally pay for their crimes. A decade after his death, and he’s still making the world a better place. I think that qualifies him for sainthood.

"One time I had a Jack & Coke and I saw that the lime was floating. That's good news, man. Next time I'm on a boat and it capsizes, I'll reach for a lime . . . and a lemon too. I'm saved by the buoyancy of citrus!" "When it comes to racism, people say, 'I don't care if they're white, purple, or green!' Oh, hold on now. Purple or green? You gotta draw the line somewhere. To hell with purple people! Unless they're suffocating. Then help them!" R.I.P. Mitch. You were the best!

most of his jokes were stupid but thats part of what made him so funny. not too many comics made me laugh the way he did. RIP dude
Num47 (2 months ago)
He struggled to win over the audience... sits on the stage looking defeated... that's a matter of opinion and a poor one at that, you clearly havn't seen that special have you?. He may have felt like that himself ofc but they were loving every bit.

drugs...it's getting downright trite to hear this anymore...seems all the "greats" succumb to drugs...it's gotten to the point to where when the "next best thing" comes down the pike, i see more heat than light...seems inevitable - almost a given...they will b the next best burnout that we'll read or hear about...why do i even care about this?...why should you?...hate responses, agreement...IDC!!...i was born in 1959, so i've seen enuff of america to have an opinion...enuff so that i just don't give a damn about ur's either.
