Mitchell Lee "Mitch" Hedberg (February 24, 1968 – March 30, 2005) was an American stand-up comedian known for his surreal humor and unconventional comedic delivery. His comedy typically featured short, sometimes one-line jokes, mixed with absurd elements and non sequiturs. Hedberg's comedy and on-stage persona gained him a cult following, with audience members sometimes shouting out the punchlines to his jokes before he could finish them. - Wikipedia

I wish I had known about him when he was alive. I found out about him right after he died, mainly because his death was announced on April Fools Day. I just love his totally random humor and delivery that's both rapid-fire and lazy. Nonetheless, having discovered his work I rank him with Dave Chappelle as one of my definite favorite comedians.

For those who also love this guy's comedy, what's your favorite Mitch line(s)?

Paraphrasing but

An escalator can never be out of order. They should put a sign saying "This escalator is temporarily stairs. Sorry for the convenience."

In honor of the 8th anniversary of Mitch's passing, here's him owning a heckler:

By all accounts he seemed like such a cool, down to earth guy.  I bet he was the type of guy to hang out after the show and have a smoke/beer with you.  It's too bad what happened to him... RIP

Pleasant surprise at Fanime last week: some of the escalators weren't running, so naturally the con staff put up signs...which led to someone apparently having some fun with them... :lol:

Would have been much funnier if they did the exact punch line "Escalators temporarily stairs, sorry for the convenience"
