Mitch All Together

There was a really cool Mitch Hedberg tribute last night at the Orpheum downtown. A lot of really good comedians including Dave Attell, Patton Oswalt, Nick Swardson, Doug Benson and Mike Birbiglia performed. For the few out there who haven't heard Mitch's stadup, go check out his last album, Mitch All Together.

Included with the album is a DVD with his Comedy Central special.

"I think Pringles initial intention was to make tennis balls. But on the day that the rubber was supposed to show up, a big truckload of potatoes arrived. But Pringles is a laid back company. They said "Fuck it. Cut em up.""-Mitch Hedberg

"Young comedians are always trying to ape someone else. Even when they're good you can always tell where their influence was. "This guy is doing Seinfeld with a twist" or "That guy is doing Sam Kinison toned down a notch." And then you see someone like Mitch, and it's like his brain was put in backwards."-Conan O'Brien
