A Month of Comedy: Mitch Hedburg

Everyday this month I will be posting one of my favorite comedians.  There will be plenty of videos and a little bit about why I like them.  The videos are most likely NSFW.

I feel like most of the comedians on this list ended up dying at a young age.  Mitch Hedburg is another of those comics.  He is probably the best at the no segue style of jokes that a few other comedians have adopted.

I think at first a person would be tempted to consider Hedburg as a bit of an idiot, but when you listen to him a bunch of times, you really see the brilliance to his simplicity.  He was a master at silly puns and clever wordplay.

Why is Hedburg so high on my list?  Well for one, I can listen to him anytime and I laugh hysterically at his stuff, even if I heard it a thousand times.  And he is easily quotable.  Since his jokes are short and deal with everyday topics, it is great to be able to bust one out at anytime.  When I was a server, if someone ordered a turkey club, I would usually say “and you don’t even have to be a member!”  If they knew the reference, they would crack up and they would instantly think I was a cool server.  If they did not know it, they just thought I was funny.  Win-win for me…Thanks Mitch!
