Millersburg Kentucky Christmas 2020

 Back in 2020, we swung through the Millersburg area on our way back from a Christmas event.  I made a brief video, but I wasn't happy with it.  It was short, it was dark at night, my car windows were dirty, the video goes out of focus too much..   so I never did anything with the video.  Well, as there was a recent fire in this cute little town, I thought I should go back and put that video up.

Mitch Hedberg at the Comedy Clubs- Tempe Arizona 2004

We were lucky enough to be able to catch the LEGENDARY Mitch Hedberg at a couple of comedy clubs when he was still around.  I have to admit that I am very proud of this.  He was easily gone too soon....

Back in 2004 we took one of my all time favorite trips to Arizona.  More on that later, BUT, while we were there, we saw an add about Hedberg playing a local venue that evening!  We knew we had to check it out!

We actually drove right to the venue after hearing about the show.  Mitch was doing two shows that evening.  We got to the venue and asked about tickets.  We were told the first show was sold out, and that, if we wanted to get in on the second show, we should buy the tickets now as they were almost gone.  We bought them!

That was something about Mitch Hedberg...  I think everyone had caught him on a late night show or something.  He wasn't starring in a sitcom or anything.  He was there....  he was different, and he was hysterical.  I remember talking to a comedy club owner once who said that Hedberg was the only touring comic that came through that he did not have to give away tickets for.

Mitch was great that night.  If you are too young to remember him, look him up now.  He was just funny as heck.  His deadpan/shyguy/observation humor was brilliant.

We were able to catch him again in Cleveland shortly after that.  I don't remember the date, but people were calling for specific jokes from the audience.  it was another great show.

AND, I remember hearing on Howard Stern one morning that he had died.  It was close to (but not on) April Fools Day, and I thought that this surely must be a joke....  but it wasn't.

I still have a couple of his CDs that I play now and then.  For some reason, I kept this promo card from some shows he did in Cleveland.  We were getting some great talent up there!  Check out the small promo for a pre-Tosh.0 Daniel Tosh!
