Rooftop Comedy’s Mitch Hedberg tribute

Rooftop Comedy celebrates the life and comedy of Mitch Hedberg by posting video clips from a May 1999 performance at Go Bananas in Cincinnati. They’ll post a new clip each Monday until they run out, honoring the late comedian who would’ve turned 40 on Feb. 24. I’ve noted my Hedberg connection before. The funny thing about these clips, aside from the jokes themselves, is seeing Hedberg in his natural element. This isn’t a Comedy Central taping, or even a CD recording. You see the Hedberg I saw, acknowledging jokes that don’t quite work, engaging the club audience, at times brilliant and imperfect, sometimes within the same minute.
