    LoKyBuckeye I give up. This board is too hard to understand.

    37 is too young for this guy to go.... I loved his style, sort of like Steven Right but he added his own personality to it.

    Comedian Mitch Hedberg Dead

    Comedian Mitch Hedberg has died at the age of 37.

    A spokesman for Hedberg confirmed the death Thursday afternoon, but declined to provide additional details.

    Hedberg began his stand-up career in South Florida, but soon moved to Seattle, where he joined that city's thriving comedy scene. His first television appearance was on MTV's "Comikaze," a role he won by reportedly unexpectedly walking into the booking office and demanding to be booked onto the show.

    A 1996 appearance at the famed Just For Laughs Montreal International Comedy Festival won him both a studio development deal and a guest appearance on "The Late Show With David Letterman." The following year he won the grand prize at the Seattle Comedy Competition.

    Since then, Hedberg has written, directed and starred in his own independent feature called "Los Enchiladas!" which premiered at Sundance. He had signed a development deal with Fox Television and had recently completed a reality show pilot for MTV. He has also made a number of appearances on Comedy Central, most recently on the animated series "Shorties Watchin' Shorties." He was also a frequent guest on the Howard Stern radio show.

    In a recent interview with Recoilmag.com, Hedberg admitted that he had mixed feelings about his success. "Right now, I'm at a point where I'm working constantly, I make great money, and everything is fine," Hedberg said. "I live comfortably and if I live this way the rest of my life, I can't say that I'd be a failure. But yet you still feel like you can do more, so I don't know what that is. I guess I'd like to be a household name."

    We saw him at Joker's in Dayton a few years ago. Truly a great comedian. Way too early for him to leave us.
