I've been a big fan of Mitch since I was in Junior High. I was at one his shows during his very first tour, and have seen him live 4 or 5 times since that. I've probably listened to his CDs about 50 times each. My university almost booked him for a show which would have been this past weekend (they opted for Lewis Black and Stephen Lynch instead). I'm going to go pop in Strategic Grill Locations now.
RIP Mitch Hedberg

I was actually supposed to see him tonight here in Baltimore. My friend who was going with me called me this morning and told me. It is a terrible loss.
"Maybe I will buy a spray-n-wash can to hold stuff. One of my friends will ask me, 'Hey Mitch, can I borrow your spray-n-wash can?' And i'll say 'yeah, if you wanna spray your shirt....WITH DOCUMENTS."
"Whats your name? Dick Army. Hahaha, whats your wives name, Vagina Coastguard?"
This just plain sucks. I was just going to try to look to see if he had any upcoming tour dates. My girlfriend and I caught him opening for Lewis Black and Dave Attel a little over a year ago and we thought he stole the show. I just bought her his latest album on Saturday. And to top it off, not ten minutes ago I found out a guy I know from worked passesd away on Tuesday.

You're way wrong about the theater taking a 50% cut domestically. They're lucky to take 20%, and they don't usually even get that much. The theater's cut of the film revenue is usually just enough to cover their operating expenses.
