Surrealist humor at its best
Label: Comedy Central Records

Mitch Hedberg lived the life of a rock star-comic, and died like one, too — he passed away in 2005, found in a Jersey hotel with drugs in his blood. He spoke in the quick, clipped voice of an old-time hipster, wore his hair Seattle long and sported a goatee resembling that of Shaggy from Scooby-Doo. Beneath this façade, however, lay a routine that was brainy and even a little bit nerdy. "I like refried… read more »

Mitch at his peak!!

HereComeTheComets

It's just my all-time favorite comedy album, you will be reciting his jokes with your friends for years to come. Mitch was clever in ways that many comedians like Dane Cook could never dream to be. And it's one of those rare albums that truly gets better each time you listen. RIP Mitch, you provided more good times than you ever knew.

The best of the three Mitch albums

stopbeatingme

You should really get all three on emusic, but this is the best one. He's at his best and peak of his career in this album (apparently he could afford better drugs than on Strategic Grill Locations). Just get it and enjoy.

I missed out

Just caught bits of his Comedy Central Presents when he was alive. Only gave this a chance after it was too late. Doesn't take long before you find yourself quoting this like a favorite movie.

Sounds just like the junkie on The Wire

Hey he does a good junkie imitation. No, wait....

Genius, absolute genius

Without a doubt, this is one of the funniest CDs ever made. I love his jokes, but his interactions with the audience make this a classic. Buy this CD now. You won't regret it. Then get his other CD and buy his Comedy Central special on iTunes. I only wish I could have seen the dude when he was still with us. Make sure you go get the missing track "Pop" on iTunes if you can.

Alphabetize! It!

I'd never heard Mitch until I ran across him on emusic. I don't remember laughing so much while listening to a comedy album since Richard Prior. His humor's hard to classify, yeah, there's that freaky weirdness that you'd normally associate with smoking weed, but unlike doper humor you don't have to be buzzed to appreciate it. Surreal is a good description. Creative wordplay, taking the normal means of words and expressions flipping them around into something unexpected. So sorry he's not with us.

The EMUSIC version is disappointing

KAI

This is a really good album. I wish I had the missing track, Pop, it has been months, possibly even years that I have been checking back for it. It is disappointing that Emusic can take so long to fix its problems. If you haven't downloaded it maybe consider that the EMUSIC version is incomplete, while if you purchase the album as a CD from the a store it also comes with a DVD.

Refreshingly original style. RIP, Mitch.

DevilsMischief

Mitch's work was a breath of fresh air in a stand-up world clogged with hacks (those who rely on routines like riding on airplanes, comparing dogs and cats, Clinton's libido, and others we've already heard a million times), and "comedians" who are just armchair philosophers bent on doing social commentary. With Mitch, you'll find no jokes here starting with "D'jever notice how all women do this..." nor dorky suggestions on how to improve the world. It's just great, original comedy here. He reminds me a little of Steven Wright in that he recites surreal one-liners. But Mitch's execution is completely different, and he makes the style all his own. Listen to some samples and you'll get the idea. Not everybody is going to "get it", but those who do, won't forget.

They Say All Music Guide

Absurd like Steven Wright but nowhere near as laid-back, Mitch Hedberg throws out one bizarre observation after another on Mitch All Together. Hedberg builds on Wright’s weird observational slant and has the same obsession with minutia, but while Wright was the man who fell to earth, Hedberg is a thinking man’s Jeff Spicoli. His slack-jawed, foul-mouthed, stoner delivery takes some getting used to, but his material is great. The comedian points out that imprinting a chocolate bar with the candy’s name robs people of chocolate, Dr. Pepper is better than Mr. Pibb because Pepper has a degree, and that escalators never really break down, they just become stairs. Wickedly riffing on these topics for longer than Wright ever did has given Hedberg a cult following and listening to Mitch All Together you can understand the excitement. Comedy Central makes it easy for the newbies to catch up by including a DVD featuring two of Hedberg’s appearances on the network, one unedited. Barely any of the material overlaps and the whole package makes for a great introduction to this talented up-and-comer. – David Jeffries
