Note to self: What the fuck happened to Norm Macdonald? The onetime Saturday Night Live Weekend Update anchorknown for his dry sense of humor, tape-recorded notes to self, and constant references to prison rape, crack whores and the German love of David Hasselhoffseemed to have dropped off the radar following his firing from the show by the same NBC executive who thought David Letterman wasnt funny. The release of his decidedly un-critically-acclaimed 1998 cult classic, Dirty Work, didnt do much for his career, either. Or so the Germans would have you believe!
In actuality, Macdonald has been perfecting his standup act in comedy clubs across the country, and anyone who missed his pitch-perfect satire of the concept of a roast at the recent Bob Saget tribute needs to look it up on YouTube and be schooled. This weekend, hes making an appearance at the Irvine Improv to show you what youve been missing.
