Let's Look Inside Mitch Hedberg's Notebooks

Posted By on Wed, Jun 5, 2013 at 3:47 PM

Comedian Mitch Hedberg died too damn early, thanks to an overdose of both heroin and cocaine (stay clean, kids), leaving a tremendous comedic legacy behind, even with a relatively small body of work.

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:
