Mitch Hedberg is one of my top 5 favorite comedians of all time. His brand of humor and delivery was astounding. He was beyond gifted and talented. His unique style is one that if you hear others try to copy it, it just falls way short and feels like a really bad imitation. Mitch’s first album Strategic Grill Locations was superb but, when his second album Mitch All Together came out, it catapulted him to another echelon of legendary status. This album is a comedy classic and rightfully so. This album was recorded in 2003 in Minnesota at the Acme Comedy Club in Minneapolis, for a Comedy Central special. The title Mitch All Together is a reference to a joke which is not included on the album (the joke is on track seven of the 1999 self-released edition of his previous album. “You know how they call corn on the cob “corn on the cob”, right? But that’s how it comes out of the ground, man. They should call that “corn”. They should call every other version “corn off the cob”. It’s not like if you cut off my arm, you would call my arm “Mitch”; but then reattach it and call it “Mitch all together”.” Personally, I could listen to Mitch tell jokes for hours. And if you ever saw his interviews on Howard Stern, he’s even more intriguing as you get to know more about Mitch as Howard is one of the best interviewers. Some other interesting tidbits about Mitch, Hedberg appeared on Letterman nine times, signed a half-million dollar deal with Fox for a television sitcom, and was dubbed “the next Seinfeld” by Time Magazine. Not to mention that comedians like George Carlin, Norm MacDonald, Lewis Black and Dave Chappelle all loved him and raved about Mitch. If you’ve never heard Mitch All Together, you are in for one hell of a treat!
