He was supposed to be performing this Thursday thru Sunday at the Baltimore Improv and I was planning to go.
Weekend's free guys.
Rest in peace, Mitch. In your next life, remember that you die after you come to Baltimore, not before.
Here's a collection of Mitch-isms.

What's with all these fucking rumors? The only article that comes up on a google news search for "mitch hedberg heroin overdose" is this one at blogcritics.org, and that's not a reputable news source. All of the "real" media is reporting this as a heart failure. Can we wait until the autopsy is completed before spreading this heroin shit?
Also stop it with the "Is this an April Fools joke?" shit. Seriously, he died on March 30th. The news spread on March 31st. Just because you first heard it on April Fools Day, doesn't mean it's a joke.
Yes, I know he was arrested for heroin possession, but that does not mean he overdosed. Wait for the facts to come out. Then open your mouth. Don't add insult to injury.
That said, what is your favorite Mitch Hedberg quote? Mine has to be:
Every McDonald's commercial end the same way, right? McDonald's commercials end like thisâ€š prices and participation may vary. Now I wanna open up a McDonaldâ€š and not participate in anything. I wanna be a stubborn McDonald's owner. I'll say, Cheeseburgers? Nopeâ€š we got spaghettiâ€š and blankets! But weâ€š are not affiliated with that clown. He attracts too many children.
