If you "get" his humor, I think he's hilarious. But I can see how people think he's not funny.

I like his humor. As said above, probably not for everyone.

I really enjoyed his talk show from a few years ago. He had some interesting guests and they all seemed to be at ease with him.

His Netflix stand-up special “Hitler’s Dog” is pretty funny.

Big Norm fan here. But, yes, I can see how his humor might not be for everyone.

To me, yes.

To OJ and Michael Jackson, not so much.

I never found him funny as an actor or during his stint on SNL.

His stand up is good. The man knows how to rant.

Yes.

all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

He's never been funny.

And his delivery is incredibly annoying, like 'this is really funny but I'm a lot smarter than you so I'll wait until you get it.'

San Antonio, TX (in the old city)


"All that is required for evil to prevail is for good men to do nothing." - Edmund Burke
“Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim. Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented." - Eli Weisel

"To announce that there must be no criticism of the President, or that we are to stand by the President, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public." - Theodore Roosevelt (1918)

"I don’t want to see religious bigotry in any form. It would disturb me if there was a wedding between the religious fundamentalists and the political right. The hard right has no interest in religion except to manipulate it." - Billy Graham 1981

"Politics and governing demand compromise. But these Christians believe they are acting in the name of God, so they can't and won't compromise" - Barry Goldwater

Are you sure that you're thinking of Norm MacDonald?

He doesn't play at being smart. His whole shtick is that he says dumb stuff and laughs at himself and sometimes he's just so goofy that you laugh with him.

It sounds more like Dennis Miller than Norm.

You dirty dog!

Find the Seinfeld Coffee in Cars clip with Norm. There may be a couple, watch whatever you can.

My favorite punchline is from one of the dirtier bits: "Hey, that's that woman who wouldn't dance with me Friday night."

It sounds more like Dennis Miller than Norm.

Or Lewis Black.

Black's shtick is being angry, not smart.

Oh, it's full of superiority and condescension, though..... I grew up in the same subdivision as LB - he's a brilliant guy, but his shtick is mocking idiots loudly by insulting their intelligence.

I like Norm a lot. I can easily get caught up in a YouTube vortex of his clips with Letterman, Conan (and I don't even like Conan). But I really really like his SLN Weekend Update stuff.

Yeah I like Norm, but I also like Mitch Hedberg and Will Ferrell, a few other potentially polarizing individuals.
