I am a huge fan of Norm MacDonald, and I’ve been obsessively listening to all his Norm MacDonald Live episodes on YouTube for months now. I’ve been waiting to do this post, since I wanted the time to be right.
His twin episodes with Gilbert Gottfried are some of the funniest things I’ve ever heard in my entire life. If you are ever doing something boring that requires audio entertainment (in my case, yesterday I was unpacking a ton of luggage and sorting things out), there’s no better way to keep your ears occupied. Indeed, I’d suggest you only listen to it, as doing so is even funnier than watching it.
This isn’t like watching Airplane! for the first time. It’s not gut-busting stuff right away. But as it sinks in, it gets more and more brilliant, and if you have the twisted sense of humor I do, you’ll absolutely appreciate it. They unwittingly did some of the great improvisational material of all time.
One last tip: it’s important to watch the entire first episode, since it makes the second all the more funny. Enjoy……
