Not a joke… Comedy Central confirms it, as do several other sources.

This is horrible news. He was my favorite contemporary comedian. King of the one-liners. Had a great, distinctive style.

I never even got to see him live. :-(

What happened to the Pick Two article? I had my comment all filled out!

I saw Mitch Hedberg a few years ago at Zanies in Chicago. Slacker Comedy at its best. If you aren’t familiar with his stuff, check it out on CD or DVD. I’m sad to see him go so early in his career.

I’ll never look at disabled escalators the same way, thanks to Mitch. This is such sad news.

Mitch was probably my favourite stand-up comedian. Awesome guy. This is a sad day.

“I opened-up a yogurt, underneath the lid it said, “Please try again.” because they were having a contest that I was unaware of. I thought maybe I opened the yogurt wrong. …Or maybe Yoplait was trying to inspire me… “Come on Mitchell, don’t give up!” An inspirational message from your friends at Yoplait, fruit on the bottom, hope on top.”

Absolutely terrible news. I always admired Mitch for being insanely funny in the smallest amount of words. He will be missed.

At first, I was like “who the fuck is Mitch Hedberg?” Then just now I went to Comedy Central’s homage of sorts for him and realized it was a comedian I saw one time on TV that was funny as hell. Too bad.
