I've found the new Mitch Hedberg

This is a music blog, but comedians put out CDs, so screw it, I'm talking about comedy.

Anyone who knows me knows I adore the late Mitch Hedberg. He is the funniest man I've ever heard, with his off-the-wall one-liners and bizarre manner of speaking, i.e. stressing of syllables that aren't supposed to be stressed. I believe I have heard every joke Mitch ever told, thanks to websites and YouTube videos, and I still treasure the bootlegged tape I made of his show at the Byham Theater a few months before he died...

Anyway... I'm finally able to get over Mitch thanks to Demetri Martin. This guy (who looks like an emo kid but is actually 34) tells the jokes that Mitch would be telling if he were alive today. In fact, he's actually stolen some of Mitch's jokes, but we'll let that slide and enjoy them:

My computer beat me at chess. But then I beat him at kickboxing...

Glitter doesn't go away. Glitter is the herpes of craft supplies...

I remember when I used to be into nostalgia...
