2005: Standup comedian Mitch Hedberg, known for his surreal humor and unconventional comedic delivery, is found dead in his hotel room in Livingston, N.J., at age 37. The official cause of death was later reported as "multiple drug toxicity" in the form of cocaine and heroin. He recorded three comedy albums: "Strategic Grill Locations," "Mitch All Together" and "Do You Believe in Gosh?," the last released posthumously.
