There’s something incredible about Norm MacDonald and his body. All of the comedian’s known body measurements are summarized below!
Standup comedian and Saturday Night Live cast member from 1993 to 1998 who anchored Weekend Update. He appeared in numerous Adam Sandler films including Billy Madison and Grown Ups and hosted the Sports Show with Norm Macdonald on Comedy Central in 2011.
He began his career by performing in local comedy clubs in Ottawa. He later started his career in entertainment by writing for the hit show Roseanne.
He was famously fired from SNL because NBC West Coast Executive Don Ohlmeyer didn’t think he was funny but many believe Ohlmeyer’s friendship with OJ Simpson, who was often mocked on Update, was the cause.
When I was young, I’d watch guys on ‘The Tonight Show’, Buddy Hackett, guys like that, where all they’d be is funny. Later, I remember, on ‘Late Night with Letterman’, I remember he’d have Jay Leno and Richard Lewis as first guests and the entire point was to entertain and be funny, and I think talk shows have kind of lost that.
I think clever people think that poor people are stupid.
I don’t like sports where it’s like, you watch a guy on a motorcycle flip or something, then another guy does it, it looks exactly the same, and then at the end one guy gets higher points! It seems so arbitrary; I don’t know who’s ahead ever.
I always told everybody the perfect joke would be where the setup and punch line were identical.
I’m a huge sports fan but have no interest in minutiae. I don’t remember who won Super Bowls five years ago or listen to sports talk radio.
