10 – 10:30 p.m. – Comedy Central Presents: Mitch Hedberg (R)

Mitch Hedberg shares his unorthodox solutions to life’s little problems in this mind-altering 30-minute stand-up special. Known for his dry, observational wit, clever wordplay and whimsical low-key style, Hedberg entertains with signature jokes like “Blocking the fire exits” and “Smacky the Frog.” A regular on The Late Show with David Letterman and Montreal’s Just For Laughs Festival, he was dubbed the “Kurt Cobain of Stand-Up Comedy” because of his long hair, laid back attitude, drug addiction, and Seattle background. Hedberg died of a drug overdose in March 2005 at the age of 37.
