RIP Mitch Hedberg

RIP Mitch Hedberg

Mitch passed away a couple of days ago, but I hadn’t had a chance to talk about it yet. He was a fabulous comedian, and I feel sad that I just discovered his stuff months ago. Another brilliant mind gone away due to heroin. How many comedians have we lost to that?

Maybe we should wait for some official news before concluding that Mitch died from heroin. The Washington Post reports:

Pending the medical examiner’s report, the cause of death appears to be a heart ailment, said his mother, Mary Hedberg. She said that her son, who struggled with drugs and alcohol, was born with a heart defect and frequently was anxious about his condition.

Hedberg said speculation that her son’s death was drug-related was gossip.

Mitch will be missed.

I am enjoying your presentation on blogs and wikis.
