OT: Mitch Hedberg

"Do You Believe In Gosh?"

One of the greats that died far too young, Mitch Hedberg, had his final alblum released 3 years posthumously, and like all of Mitch's previous material, was brilliant. When I lived in Brooklyn I had the pleasure of meeting one of his friends who hosted a comedy night at at place called the R Bar, a real neighborhood bar where everyone knew each other. It was a great place, every Sunday one of the owners made sheperd's pie, empenada's and a variaty of other food for free. By the time Sunday rolled around, My roomate and I were quite strapped for cash, so free food night was quite a nice treat. $1 Rolling Rock pints for happy hour(s) and free food.

I love Mitch Hedberg. He was from St. Paul, MN. When I was into him, he never played shows near the Twin Cities. He tragically met his demise. What weird is that he had an funeral open to the public that I wanted to go to. My girlfriend at the time said "the only time you are going to see him, he is going to be dead". :D
