25 Hilarious Examples Of Comedian Mitch Hedberg’s Comedic Genius

Mitch Hedberg is highly regarded in many comedy circles as one of the greatest unconventional comedians in recent history. In fact, he has been considered the king of the non-sequitur. His unique delivery led to quite a serious cult following, and his one line jokes continue to be shared widely on the internet. Unfortunately, Mitch died in 2005 at the age of 37 due to a multiple drug overdose. Ironically, this was something he often joked about in his stand-up performances.

In spite of being so popular on stage, however, Mitch always suffered from stage fright. In fact, he would often perform wearing sunglasses and have his hair in his face. Sometimes, he even stood with his back to the audience. And when jokes weren’t well received he would usually mention how dumb the joke was immediately after making it. His unconventional style, way of talking, and delivery all contributed to making him one of the most unique stand up comedians of his time, and since then, many others have taken inspiration from him. Today, however, we are going to pay tribute to one of this century’s greatest comedians. These are 25 Hilarious Examples Of Comedian Mitch Hedburg’s Comedic Genius!
