    I was speaking with a friend last night about a particular comedy bit. We couldn't remember who did the bit. So I googled... and in googling, it seems to me that some of my favorite comedians were what you would call 'cult" comedians. they didn't necessarily have huge followings, but they had devoted followings. it also dawned on me that a lot of these guys are dead... and i don't mean got old and died... i mean died really, really young.

    Bill Hicks
    Sam Kinison
    Mitch Hedberg
    Greg Giraldo
    Andy Kaufman

    i also mention george carlin, not just because he was the psychic father to so many of these guys. (he just got a few extra years after his heart attacks).

    I'm not sure what was in the water they drank, but they were some of the most briliant comedy minds i've seen. Anyway, this is a long way to getting around to this link which talks about greg giraldo who died a year ago and has a link to some of his funnier bits.

    Greg Giraldo's Last Laugh | The Fix

    here's one of them:

    Mitch was my wifes favourite of the last 10 years and we saw him live several times. It was a very sad day when he passed as it is when any of these guys and gals go. He was The Far Side of stand up comedy for sure!

    My fav Hedberg was his desire to rob a bank with a B-B gun. He'd tell the cashier, 'I'll shoot you, and you'd have a dimple...you get cute, I get rich, it's a win-win!'
