COMEDIAN MITCH HEDBERG TO BRING ONE-LINERS TO SRU FEB. 23

          SLIPPERY ROCK, Pa. – Comedian Mitch Hedberg, best known for his shy persona, formal staccato diction and one-liner observations, will headline a 9 p.m. Feb. 23 one-man performance at Slippery Rock University.

          Hedberg is a frequent guest on CBS’ “Late Night with David Letterman” and NBC’s “Late Night with Conman O’Brien.”

          The campus program, organized by SRU’s University Program Board, will be presented in the University Union. Tickets, now on sale at the union, are $8 for students, $16 for the general public.

          Born in St. Paul, Hedberg began performing stand-up in Florida, then in Seattle, San Francisco and New York City. He performed at the 1996 “Just for Laughs Montreal International Comedy Festival” which landed him his first visit to “Letterman.” Time Magazine included him as one of the next generation of comedy stars, and he has written, directed and stared in his own independent feature film titled “Los Enchiladas!” which premiered at the 1999 Sundance Film Festival.

          He has also been seen in his own “Comedy Central Presents,” half-hour special, and on Fox TV’s “That 70’s Show.” His first CD was titled “Strategic Grill Locations” and his “Mitch All Together” DVD/CD has sold more  than 100,000 copies.
