American comedian Mitch Hedberg was known for his signature deadpan delivery and bizarre content. His classic one-liners left audiences, including bigtime celebrity fans Steve Martin and David Letterman, chuckling at the Minnesota native's unconventional humor. Hedberg got his big break as a comedian performing on Late Night with David Letterman in 1996. Thought to be "the next Seinfeld" when Hedberg signed with Fox to do a series, the comedian's career was cut short when he passed in 2005 from drug usage.
Here's a list of the legendary comedian's top 13 jokes. For more surrealist humor, check out the list of all Hedberg's famous quotes.
PicketingI'm against picketing, but I don't know how to show it.
Tightrope WalkerIf you were friends with a tightrope walker and you were walking down the street with him, and he fell, that would be completely unacceptable.
PringlesI think Pringles' original intention was to make tennis balls. But, on the day the rubber was supposed to arrive, a truckload of potatoes showed up. And Pringles is a laid-back company, they said, "F**k it, cut 'em up!"
YoplaitI opened-up a yogurt and underneath the lid it said, "Please try again," because they were having a contest that I was unaware of. But, I thought maybe I'd opened the yogurt wrong. Or maybe Yoplait was trying to inspire me. "Come on Mitch, don't give up!" A message of inspiration from your friends at Yoplait. Fruit on the bottom, hope on top.
