    Demetri Martin

    After the tragic loss of my favorite stand-up, Mitch Hedberg, Demetri Martin has slowly been growing on me. Does anyone else listen to D. Martin at all?

    Here's a sample of Mitch: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_bESBs3Lg7M

    from Wikipedia:
    Death

    Late in the evening on March 29, 2005, Hedberg was found dead in his room in Livingston, New Jersey.[1] His death was first announced by Howard Stern on his morning talk show and confirmed by the St. Paul Pioneer Press later in the day.
    Hedberg was known to be a drug user, referring to it in some of his jokes, and was arrested in Austin, Texas in May 2003 for possession of heroin.[1] He was also born with a heart defect for which he received extensive treatment as a child.[9] It was initially speculated that his heart condition may have played a part in his death until the New Jersey medical examiner's office reported "multiple drug toxicity," including cocaine and heroin, as the official cause of death.[1] Results of the autopsy and toxicology reports were first reported by journalist Peter Hyman in the January 2006 edition of Spin magazine.[1]

    I remember Mitch, he used to appear on Howard Stern from time to time. I think he died of a overdose, but I could be wrong. I wouldn't know any of today's comics if it wasn't for Howard Stern. Some of my favorites are Lisa Lampanelli, Paul Mooney, Earthquake and Tracy Morgan. Just last week Dave Attell was in promoting his HBO special.

    Martin had a special on Comedy Central a while back, I like him. He used to appear on The Daily Show occasionally.
