Mitch Hedberg - Strategic Grill Locations in addition to Mitch All Together.
One of my favorite Mitch-isms:
You know they call corn-on-the-cob "corn-on-the-cob," but that's how it comes out of the ground, man. They should call that "corn," and call every other version "corn-off-the-cob." It's not like if you cut off my arm you would call it "Mitch," then reattach it and call me "Mitch-all-together."
And hence the name of the CD.
Here is a link to an article published after his death. I attended some of the crappy shows they talked about towards the end of his life. He was so wasted I couldn't understand the jokes. But a brilliant, brilliant, man.
If you're watchin' a parade, make sure you stand in one spot, don't follow it, it never changes. And if the parade is boring, run in the opposite direction, you will fast-foward the parade. --Mitch Hedberg
They're not CDs, but I recommend Richard Pryor's first 2 recorded live movies, "Live in Concert" and "Live on the Sunset Strip".
IMO, the first one is best. The second one has him talking about when he lit himself on fire while free-basing. Horrendous yet hilarious.
Pay attention to the open sky
"Hey ice cream boy! You better slow that thing down! This is the neighborhood, this ain't no residential district. Oh yea! Well step on out here then. I got something for your *SS! I'm a veteran of World War 1 BOY! The Battle of Chateau Bryant. I got mustard gas wounds all over my body!"

"panic" only comes from having real expectations
Strategic Grill Locations is a scattered mess, to say the least. Some great lines, but you could just hear how high he was, and you could tell his stage anxiety was in control of him that night.
"I played golf, I'm not good at golf, I never got a hole-in-one ... but I did hit a guy. And that's way more satisfying. You're supposed to yell "fore," but I was too busy mumbling, "There ain't no way that's gonna hit him." I hit a guy in one. What's par for hitting a guy? One. If you hit a guy in two, you are an (meanie)."

My buddy has a couple of those Dave Attel cd's. At one point I was laughing so hard I couldn't breathe and Sam Adams Cherry Wheat was leaking out my nose. Good times.
