Born Mitchell Lee Hedberg, Feb. 24, 1968, in St. Paul, Minnesota. The comedian "once explained the reason his was not a household name was because most of his fans lived in apartments. [He] spent much of his career straddling that fine line between cult status and relatively larger stardom," said MTV. "Hedberg was known for his disheveled hippie look, his relaxed, almost sedate stage manner, and his dawdling delivery -- his face forever concealed behind a pair of shades and a wall of floppy bangs."
Compared most frequently to the odd remarks and precise jokes written and preformed by stand-up comic Steven Wright, "Hedberg's one-liners, dished off in a spacey staccato, were based on absurdist, random observations," stated "Pioneer Press." "His success occurred in light of, in spite of, and even because of his quarter-century affair with drugs and alcohol."
Mitch Hedberg began appearing at southern Florida Open Mike nights in 1989, moving to Seattle two years later, where he eventually grew his material and stage confidence to the point he could tour. He dabbled in acting ("Almost Famous," "That '70s Show," "Crank Yankers") and became a regular visitor to Howard Stern's radio program. At the time of his death, he was planning his first HBO comedy special.
