That whole interview is worth a watch, and if you are looking for it, it's "Norm macdonald conan 1997". 

RIP funny man.

His Bob Saget Roast Appearance was awesome as well.

lincoln65: His bit where he was hosting the first "YouTube webbies" awards with Jenny Slate and some other guy was absolutely hilarious.

They were all dressed up and treating it like a red carpet star studded event, and clearly wanted it to go well for the benefit of their careers.
He's out there in sweats just ripping on the "internet celebrity" era. Just priceless. [Youtube-video https://www.youtube.com/embed/A848xpsD​Jbw]

Oh, fark you 2020 and 2021. Norm MacDonald was a beacon of light for old, sarcastic men. Who am I supposed to look up to now? Bill Maher?
 
2021-09-14 4:00:25 PM  
Goddammit.  Too many great, funny people dying this year.  Fark cancer!
 
2021-09-14 4:00:48 PM  
In Howard Sterns heyday, when he was still uber relevant and comedians and rock stars clammored to get on his show for exposure, not just nostalgia like now, Norm was the only comedian who had the balls to call Stern out. He blamed Stern and his staff for that one drunk whack packer who died, cause they egged on his drinking. As a huge fan of Stern, still to this day, that impressed me.

My favorite Norm bit was always the Fantastic Four bit. I'll have to look it up tonight in his honor.

In the sadness of losing Norm, I don't want to overlook the spectacular headline by subby.


Norm would have wanted it this way.

Well done.

That's what got him fired from SNL. The network bigwigs were friends of OJ Simpson's, and they didn't like MacDonald shiatting on him during Weekend Update. That just made Norm double down, especially after the verdict.

Maybe don't be friends with wife beaters and murderers. Just a thought.

Wolf892: First Trever Moore and now Norm... Who's next, Pete Davidson?


Let's go for Jim Breuer.

He's an SNL alum. And now an asshat cancelling his shoes at any venue that requires vaccination proof or a negative test.

Yeah...I has to look the name up. He was Brian in Half Baked (the one that bought Jerry Garcia's ashes)

Like in the same league as Confederacy of Dunces and Catch-22.


I read the entire moth joke to friends around a campfire. That version is simply epic.

Jim Breuer has a funny story about Norm from the SNL days (and he even does a pretty good Norm impression for what it's worth, NSFW):

Ive ried to explain the book to people, how it is and is not a real memoir, but I cant even really do that. Its so weirdly structured and well written with moments of real poetry.

That book is real literature, not just some dumb comedy tell all.
 
2021-09-14 4:10:52 PM  
Watching the reactions from other comedians during his set on the Bob Saget roast is one of my favorite things to do.  What a treasure.
 
2021-09-14 4:12:07 PM  

Subtonic: He gave the greatest roast performance of all time using the lamest jokes of all time. Only he could pull that off.

And he gave OJ some good ones too.


IIRC his father gave him a toastmasters joke book when he told him he was interested in a career in comedy. Most of those jokes came from that book.

I don't disagree that Lorne Michaels is an asshole, but I think in this instance, he wasn't the primary asshole. That honor goes to Brandon Tartikoff, who I'm pretty sure was the head of NBC at the time.
