However, his wife Lynn Shawcroft, a successful comedian in her own right, has curated MitchHedberg.net into a museum of Mitch's greatness, complete with looks into his idea notebooks.

Recently, Shawcroft opened up those notebooks further to GQ, giving a deep look into what we're not afraid to call comic genius. Check it:
