There Are 30 Never Before Seen Notebooks of Mitch Hedberg Jokes

"You know what I like? The idea of 30 notebooks of Mitch Hedberg's jokes getting published as a book." Dude, you have to give me time to guess. If you're going to quiz me you have to insert a pause. That being said, this seems like it might happen. Mitch's widow, Lynn Shawcroft, tweeted yesterday: " I have over 30 Hedberg notebooks. I guess it's about time I share." She didn't mention how these things will be shared but it sure sounds like a potential book. Urban Outfitters would undoubtedly be super pumped to be able to sell it. Below are a few choice one-liners from the notebooks:

    Mitch was truly one of the greatest comics of our time.

    Burn those notebooks, nobody else can present his material in a way that would do it justice. Love the man for what he gave us and remember him that way.

      Mitch is my favorite standup ever, and you're right, nobody has the delivery he had. But if they're in a book, every big Hedberg fan could imagine him tell all the jokes we never had the chance to hear.
      I cannot wait! RIP Mitch.

      The comedy community doesn't take too kindly to people stealing material from other comedians, could you imagine what would happen if somebody even got on a stage with his book? There would be fucking riots. It's not Shakespeare, these notebooks are definitely meant to be read, if it works for Professor Farnsworth, then it will also work for Mitch Hedburg.

    I sure hope that is tongue in cheek!   Mitch would PUKE at the thought

      He was very funny. It's all in the delivery. Written word just isn't the same.

    They should do it like the Kurt Kobain notebook book.

    That loner joke is pure gold.

    so if i drink 12 o'doeil's in an hour does that make me a non-acoholic, and if i fall down does it hurt… i've heard Mitch do that joke, not a new one. true no one had his style or delivery, but i want to know what he had to say, as for all those against it, think about what Mitch said, " i'm against protesting, i just don't know how to show it" it good be a childrens book, like he said "all books are childrens books, if the kid knows how to read" R.I.P. Mitch….
