Lynn Shawcroft talks about the writing process of her late husband, Mitch Hedberg

This week’s episode of Modern Comedian, the documentary webseries by Scott Moran, goes way back to a time before iPhones — when apps meant appetizers — and when we all had the opportunity to experience Mitch Hedberg in our lives.

Lynn Shawcroft, who was married to Hedberg, shares stories about him as well as a look inside his writing process. Shawcroft recently wrote on Twitter about her desire to share his notebooks with the world. And in this video, she begins to do so.

Just hearing his voice again makes me miss him. As well as every other great voice in stand-up comedy we’ve lost in the past few years.

Perhaps we all can take a moment today to daydream, to let our imaginations run free, and come up with something brilliant.

Roll the clip.
