This Short Documentary on Mitch Hedberg’s Writing Process Will Floor You


A month ago, we reported that Mitch Hedberg’s widow, Lynn Shawcroft, had over 30 never before seen notebooks of Mitch’s. This documentary does a truly wonderful job of capturing his process and giving us a glimpse inside those books. “Men’s Clothing Liquidation, I had to buy something before they melted,” read one of the pages. You can just hear Hedberg’s distinct cadence in that one sentence. You know what I like? This documentary. (You are like, “Dude, you have to give me time to guess. If you’re going to quiz me you have to insert a pause.”)
