Mitch Hedberg

  • Mitch Hedberg was born in Saint Paul, Minnesota, the son of Arnold and Mary Hedberg. He graduated from Harding High School in Saint Paul and was married to Canadian comedian Lynn Shawcroft on February 25, 1999.
  • He began his career in 1989 playing open mic nights in southern Florida. Two years later, in 1991, he moved to Seattle, where, due to his continued efforts, his popularity increased.
  • Hedberg appeared on The Late Show with David Letterman ten times and became one of the show's most successful American comedians.
  • Hedberg was known to be a drug user, referring to it in some of his jokes ("I used to do drugs. I still do, but I used to, too").
  • Hedberg was arrested in Austin, Texas, in May 2003 for possession of heroin.
  • Late in the evening on March 29, 2005, Hedberg was found dead in his room in Livingston, New Jersey.
  • He was born with a heart defect for which he received extensive treatment as a child. It was initially speculated that his heart condition may have played a part in his death until the New Jersey medical examiner's office reported "multiple drug toxicity", in the form of a cocaine and heroin "speedball", as the official cause of death.
  • Mitch Hedberg's funeral was at St. Ambrose of Woodbury Church in Minnesota.
