Mitch Hedburg was one of the funniest stand up comedians I have ever heard. His humor was very simple and his delivery style was quite reserved, almost shy. He often delivered his lines staring at the floor and fidgeting like a young boy meeting his first date. Tragically, he died early last year at the young age of 37. I've heard a lot of Mitch Hedberg recordings, but I don't recommend or listen to any of the ones made in typical comedy venues because of the language he uses. He appeared a lot on Letterman, and if I remember correctly, the jokes were always pretty clean.
Here are some of my favorite Mitch Hedberg lines:
"I think foosball is a combination of soccer and shishkabobs. Foosball ruined my perception of soccer. I thought you had to kick the ball, and then spin 'round and 'round. I can't do a backflip. Much less several. Simultaneously with two other guys. That look just like me."
"I like Kit-Kats unless I'm with 4 or more people."
"I'm against picketing, but I don't know how to show it."
"My friend said to me, 'You know what I like? Mashed potatoes.' I was like, 'Dude, you have to give me time to guess. If you're going to quiz me you have to insert a pause.'"
"If you had a friend who was a tightrope walker, and you were walking down a sidewalk, and he fell, that would be completely unacceptible."
"Why are there no during pictures?"
