Mitch Hedburg All Together

Mitch Hedburg was a great comedian. The first time I heard him, I thought he could be the next Steven Wright. But he died in the usual manner of great comedians, drugging himself to death. Anyway, there's a page of his quotes at Wikiquote, and it's hysterical. I gotta get that guy's CDs. Also check out his official website. I had no idea he was so popular until I heard some of his bits on All Comedy Radio.

I heard his clips and thought the same thing. That sesame joke is classic. I can't believe he's dead. That's kind of creepy.
Favorite quotes:
-What's par for hitting a guy?
-I want to be a stubborn McDonalds owner. "You got Big Macs?" "Nope. We got spaghetti! And blankets."
-That's why I wanna try fried beans, because maybe they're just as good and we're just wasting time.
-If you had a friend who was a tightrope walker, and you were walking down a sidewalk, and he fell, that would be completely unacceptable.
-I used to lie awake in my twin bed wonderin' where my brother was...
- I don't need another step between me and toast.

I'd never heard of the guy. That stuff was really funny! Too bad he's dead.
