New Norm/Eget action.

That's the third video uploaded to his YouTube in a week. This pandemic's good for something.

Cheers, lanky.  It's comforting to see Norm's perfectly-honed 'you will laugh now' face, pale and Paul Newmany though it may be.  Hope he continues with the Quarantined pod and someone tells him about conference calls so he can keep Ed McBoy on board if he has any other guests.

Love his joke about eating healthier now. Such an incredibly funny motherfucker; hope he’s genuinely taking care of himself, doesn’t look all that great.

Norm yelling down the phone and lots of hard edits, doesn't sound like an easy call.

I dunno, for some reason with Norm the more lo-fi he gets the more I like the cut of his jib.

I like how his lie that he is 68 gets absolutely no incredulity from the audience.

I think Norm may have been taking notice of all these comments about how he looks.

New Quarantined with a still guano Roseanne is easily the best one so far.

This Norm related content appears to have gone unmentioned.

Back in February (less than two months ago but feels like a year) Norm co-launched a dating app called LOKO: https://lokoforlove.com/

Surely it's some sort of uber-meta joke taken a whole new level.

You're probably right. I initially thought Norm to be "too clever" to get swindled. He's clearly a very intelligent, learned and well-read man but he's also a gambling addict which might well tie in with getting swindled.

Thoughts on this one? Potentially dodgy ground but I laughed very hard at “he’s the guy with five cocks in his mouth.” I like to think this routine is just absurd rather than borderline homophobic, but maybe I’m misreading it.

The "gay guys don't rape" but doesn't work at all because the observation is so fundamentally untrue as to make no sense. And the "being gay is fine but what's to be proud about?" stuff is a really standard conservative trope based on fundamentally misunderstanding the pride in question. But the bit it sets up is funny, though it's one of those bits that Norm gets away with that I don't think other comedians could. "He's the guy with the five cocks in his mouth" did indeed make me laugh, but it's not one of his best bits by any means, and probably the joke isn't worth what could generously be termed the homophobic undertones.

Norm discusses this in some apparent sincerity here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MOmbMPIisgI I think he's always engaging when he's discussing serious subjects like this. I think he's aware of, but isn't going for an standard conservative trope, he always seems effortless which makes it seem that he's going for an easy take. It seems to me that he's dancing in a field of mouse traps by taking on something that could so easily be offensive, or worse, unfunny, to get a better comedy reward.

I've been re-re-re-re...watching Norm MacDonald Live during lockdown. The first two seasons are up there amongst some of my all time favourite comedy things. He's surely the greatest living joke teller. It's remarkable how he's mastered the art of jokes, from the simple feedline/punchline to the twelve minute shaggy dog story, and everything in-between.

The intro to the second ever one (Tom Green) is so funny.

Last night I watched Norm's early 90's One Night Stand. There's some good stuff in there but he's much funnier as the old chunk of coal that he always wanted to be.

It's worth a watch. The opening sketch is a riff on the Python sketch about the playwright whose son ponces off to Barnsley to become a coal miner. Toward the end he does a bit which became the genesis for his "real jerk" bit: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EZGBbwnMlqQ

Norm is definitely a conservative. He doesn't have a stick up his arse like a lot of them, but he has undeniable social preferences.

It is odd that the only funny right wing comedian ever also happens to be the funniest person ever.
