Mitch Hedberg's entire catalog is being released on vinyl

Publish date:

Mitch Hedberg fans, get excited.

The late, St. Paul-born stand-up comedian's entire body of work is coming out on vinyl, Comedy Central said Tuesday.

Hedberg was known for his "absurd observations about everyday life," Comedy Central says. And after his overdose death in March 2005MTV News reported, he continued to build a "cult following," Comedy Central notes.

Some of his most popular quotes include:

  • "I used to do drugs. I still do, but I used to, too."
  • "I'm against picketing, but I don't know how to show it."
  • "I like escalators, because an escalator can never break; it can only become stairs. There would never be an 'escalator temporarily out of order' sign. Only an 'escalator temporarily stairs… sorry for the convenience.'"

A few years ago, Buzzfeed ranked all of Hedberg's jokes – check out the list here.
