Last Comic Standing

I thought the intention of comedy was to make people laugh. Why is Mitch Hedberg the only comedian that seems to relate to our generation? And why does everyone awesome die? Why don't the crappy comedians die first? Why don't the Karma Police go and kill the loser comedians that talk about high school in their act, or why it's funny that they're a minority (weight, race, heighth)? Could it be that our generation is so bent on sarcasm, that stand-up doesn't really work best for our delivery and that a guy like Hedberg's the only guy who figured out how to make it work? I think we'd make for some killer hecklers if we could figure that out.
