    This guy cracks me up, anyone else dig him??

    The sad part is he came to my university for a comedy tour with Gilbert Godfry, but i didn't go because i didn't know who Mitch was, about a week later i caught his Comedy Central special, and it cracked me up. Could have seen him for 15$!

    Reciently i got a CD of his, absoultly hilarious, his jokes are so random and stupid you can't help but laugh.

    i like the one where he says "i used to be in a death meal band, people either hated us or loved us....or they thought we were ok"

    anyone else here like Mitch?

    un freakin beleivable comedian, funny as heck. One of my favorite quotes form him is as follows: "wearing a turtle neck and a backpack is like a weak midget trying to strangle you all day long"

    CD is spectacular.

    Saw him live and he wasn't funny. Nick Swardson made up for it however.

    Mitch is great. I've got his older CD, Strategic Grill Positions, but haven't picked up his latest one yet.
     
  6. I think he's a total riot and master of the non-sequitir.

    He's hyping the whole 70's hippy vibe a tad much, but hey...

    The thing i like about Mitch is that he's just a funny guy. He dosn't have to try to be funny, like lots of other comedians. Even if his jokes arn't funny the way he says them makes up for it. I like the way he talks, it's funny.

    :D I love Mitch. I saw him in Austin before I moved to Seattle and the guy was a riot. Super friendly too. He's actually playing here in Seattle tonight but I'm leaving for a camping trip and won't be back until monday :crying: ......

    If you get a chance to see him......go!

    The bit about putting a frog in a mayonaise jar with a stick and a leaf to re create his natural habitat had me laughing pretty hard.
    I also liked...."I used to do drugs......I still do drugs, but I used to too"

    My friend asked me if I wanted a frozen banana. I said "no". But then I thought I might want one later, so I said "yes".

    I sometimes drop my own candy, so that it can reach it's maximum flavor potential.

    I went to see a band in New York. The lead singer got on the microphone, and he said "How many of you people feel like human beings tonight?" Then he said "How many of you feel like animals?" And everyone cheered after the animals part. But the thing is, I cheered after the human being part because I did not know that there was a second part to the question.

    Whenever I have a car with XM Radio, I lock into Channel 150, Comedy XL. Mitch comes on that a lot. I'm surprised I haven't driven off the road on some of his material.

    He is definitely the master of non-sequitar.

    Peace,

    I try not to listen to untested comedy on the road.

    Because if I find something funny, I'm likely to lose control of the car. Heck, Gard about lost it when we shared a ride up to Atlanta, and that was stuff we both knew by heart.

    If I'd heard the Bill Connolly "Live Hammersmith Odeon" (dunno what album it is, it's just the name of the mp3 file I have of it), I'd killed myself and at least 6 others.

    Alcoholism is a disease, but it's the only disease you can get yelled at for having. (Dang) it Otto, you're an alcoholic. (Dang) it Otto, you have Lupis. One of those two doesn't sound right.
