Follow TV Tropes
I remember first seeing Mitch Hedberg on Comedy Showcase one night while my best friend was staying over. Mitch was quite the sight, with his long hair, glasses, & a very loud Hawaiian shirt, a guy on an upright bass behind him giving the whole act the feel of a jazz act or a beat poetry recital. Mitch had one joke that had my friend & I both howling with laughter, and picking up our jaws off the floor, wondering just who the hell this guy was:
"This shirt is dry-clean only, which means it's dirty!"
He somehow managed to make it even funnier the second time he told it, just about 30 seconds later.
Even now, I often find myself quoting his bit about escalators:
"Escalators should never have a 'Temporarily Out of Order' sign on them. It should say, 'Escalators Temporarily Stairs. We Apologize For the Convenience'!"

How well does it match the trope?
