I'm a fan of comedy. I love to laugh. Sadly, my favorite comedian is dead. Not Richard Pryor or George Carlin. My favorite comedian is Mitch Hedberg. Like Sam Kinison, he was great at one-liners. Even though he's been dead for over 10 years, I still listen to his sets and quote his jokes to this day. If you listen closely, I'll even throw in a few during a night of trivia. I think what made his comedy so effective was the delivery. His "alright" and slow and steady pace helped to make even the weaker jokes funny. I still laugh when I hear his stance on Bigfoot. It's hilarious.
If you've never listened to Mitch Hedberg, you should. Below is one of my favorite recordings of him. Before you ask, yes, he is pretty much stoned every time he is on stage. I think it adds to his delivery.
Listen closely next week as you might hear me drop some Mitch Hedberg lines. And, if you would like a bonus point, come deliver your favorite Mitch Hedberg joke to me. Don't forget, Harry Potter Trivia Night is coming up August 31 at 7pm. That's a Monday, so mark your calendars now! Also, don't forget the 2nd installment of the PubGuys Trivia League starts up September 1. You can play, and get league credit, at any participating PubGuys Trivia location.
Congrats to our winners on the night, Solo Roberto and the Mouseaholics.
