Finally, A Mitch Maneuver

This is the late, great Mitch Hedberg, doing a tasty 5 minutes on The Late Show with David Letterman. I believe my first exposure to Hedberg was thanks to Letterman.

The thing I liked most about Mitch, is the fact that he suffered from an almost debilitating stage fright, and yet he battled through it the best he could...The drugs certainly figured into it, but it takes a very certain bravery to tell jokes in front of a live audience, nevermind national network television. A bravery beyond cocaine.

Look at his shaky hand. Imagine the fear behind those shades.

We miss you, Mitch.

Hotcha! Hank
