Like Ol’ Dirty Bastard, there was no father to Mitch Hedberg’s stoner comedic style. Hedberg lulls the crowd with his mellow pacing and then hits them with a punchline.
Third Monk favorite Hannibal Buress is often compared to Hedberg and credits Hedberg for helping him get a break in Chicago’s comedy scene.
Saw Mitch at a show a few months before his death. One of the best. RIP good sir.
RIP. I have known about you just a couple of minutes, but you cool. Really.
