Indeed. I think I've seen him live three times now (it all gets fuzzy after awhile).

The first time I saw him he went on a rant about what a shithole Rolla, MO was.

Its absolutely ridiculous that we live with a hole in the o-zone. Weve got men, weve got rockets, weve got Saran Wrap. FFFFFFFIX IT!

Some time ago, Lewis Black & Dave Attell were touring together for Comedy Central. They had different opening acts in each city.

The opening act for Phoenix was supposed to be... Mitch Hedberg! Whoo-hoo! Bonus! Then, for some reason, he didn't make it at the last minute. So, they trotted some hack out there.

The show was still good (aside from the retard). I would've gladly paid the ticket price to just see Black and Attell... but, it wasn't nice to get my hopes up fro Hedberg, too.. then have them dashed.

Lewis Black may be the best topical comedian nowadays. In his latest HBO show he did a great bit about the tax cuts that I'll try to paraphrase as best I can:

Instead of cutting taxes to stimulate the economy, we need to do a huge public works project. First you need to pick an economically depressed area, say anywhere in Mississippi. Once you've picked the spot, you use the money to build a big f**king thing. It doesn't matter what it is, it just has to be big and it has to be a f**king thing. Once it's built, people will come from miles around to see the big f**king thing so tourism revenue will increase and next thing you know you've got the Big F**king Thing Restaurant and the Big F**king Thing Hotel & Casino.

I am a big big Mitch Hedberg fan and have been for a while...he came to SMS and I saw him and the live show was kind of dissapointing. Maybe it was just an off night or something. The guy he was with Zach Galifinakis was beyond funny...it was riot.

He's got a quality Comedy Central special.

I have a sister with multiple personalities and that's not funny. The other day she called me and my caller ID exploded.

Man, his show in person was awesome too. I think the guy is as about as funny as anyone out there.

From the Zach Galifanakis show...

You know my dad always told me...Zach...you have a great name. Because it starts with "Gal" and ends with a "Kiss"

Why didn't you name me Zach Galifanka****?

I was listening to Lewis Black on XM Comedy on the way home tonight and he mentioned Rolla, MO. He was doing a bit on airport security, and he flew in to Omaha, NE which "was like Paris, compared to Rolla,MO."

I heard that when Hedberg was in Phoenix. He had the audience throw random pills on stage and he took them. Then he passed out.
