The video features widow Lynn reading from Mitch’s personal notebooks, including jokes and insight for aspiring writers. It’s heartbreaking to watch her go through his collection, but it’s inspiring and heartwarming as well.
I remember hearing of Mitch’s death when I was a senior in high school and immediately calling a close friend who was a fellow fan.
The man had a million one-liners — some smart and some silly — but all hilarious. Check out his Comedy Central special, which was my introduction to Hedberg, and remember: Write it down.
