Mitch Hedberg-Still the best

If laughter is the best medicine, it will cure the late Mitch Hedberg comedy. His style is difficult to define, but it is best described as a whimsical line of inseparable forms, and will “laugh for days”, as my friend predicted to me.

“My belt holds my pants, but the belt loop holds my belt. I really don’t know what’s going on there. Who is the real hero?”

Mitchell Lee Hedberg was born on February 24, 1968 in St. Paul, Minnesota. For the next six years, Hedberg spending time in and out of the hospital because of heart disease had low school attendance and never became an ideal student. After graduating from high school, Hedberg packed his belongings in a paper bag and headed to Florida. He started his comedy career on Mike’s night at a local club in Boca Raton and repeated bombings. Due to severe stage terror, Hedberg stopped looking directly at the audience, always wearing sunglasses, sometimes closing his eyes, allowing long hair to cover his face. Rarely, he played with his back to the audience. Hedberg’s extraordinary speech methods and bizarre behavior further enhanced the sudden delivery of bizarre material, helping to create his on-stage persona as a rambling stoner. If so, a ridiculous philosopher.

“You know, I’m tired of following my dreams. I’ll ask where they go and connect with them later.”

For the bitter and shy comedian, success came slowly. Hedberg, who got a job in touring in the late 80’s, had a bad reputation, but he liked being on the streets, and this time he used it to complete his technique and began to grow in popularity over time. .. His first national exposure was in 1996 at the Just for Laughs Festival in Montreal, where he made his 10th appearance in a late show with David Letterman. A second visit to Montreal in 1998 led to a $500,000 home comedy deal with Fox. The Fox people did not face the daunting task of creating the right platform for Hedberg’s unique reflection. A frequent guest guest on Howard Stern’s Morning Show, his resume also included television and film appearances. By 2000, Time magazine declared stand-up comics “the next Seinfeld”.

“I used to use drugs. I still use drugs. But it used to be.”

In February 1999, Hedberg married a longtime friend, Linkowcroft. In many ways, this relationship was a true love story. They worshiped each other and Lin enjoyed the touring lifestyle just like Hedberg. The couple became inseparable and made their world. The two became known for their secrecy and increasingly strange behavior. Surrounded by rumors of drug use, his background, Hedberg, was well aware of possible problems other than the mention made during his actions. After being arrested in 2003 for possession of a syringe, a small amount of heroin, and some Valium and Xanax, his problem was a secret. Shortly after he was arrested, Hedberg underwent 13 hours of surgery to save his right leg from an infection that had worsened for months. By 2005, he and Lynn were back on tour, and the manga worked hard. His health began to decline.

This cartoon was found dead on March 29, 2005 in a hotel room in Livingston, NJ. His death, initially believed to be related to his heart condition, was later identified as an overdose of the drug from a mixture of heroin and cocaine. Hedberg loves his life as a comic, loves monster movies, and ironically Kurt Cobain-the existence of Courtney Love with his wife Lin.

“The other day, when this guy asked if he wanted a frozen banana, I was walking down the street…I said no, but later I thought I might want a regular banana. Because… “

Hedberg slowly and carefully delivered the jokes line by line when trying out new materials. It’s as if the punch line was delivered after waiting for the audience’s approval. Usually he already had. Vividness

It’s a sequel.
