          yeah they do satan but in norm's case its pretty observable if you watch his show and the way he talks and thinks, hes very humble but also very wise, evidence includes crushing who wants to be a millionaire, being an insanely successful (at first) gambler, and his overall observation of other comedians and the world as a whole he never falls for jerk reactions and doesn't get tricked into falling for any side

    Well for a period of time in the 90's Norm Macdonald was the funniest man in America. His SNL news bits were the highlight of every weekend for many many many people. His movie Dirty Work is amazingly funny too. That bit about the dead hookers in the car trunks still makes me laugh.
    Comedy is subjective though. If you think someone else is funnier, that's fine. I think sense of humor is something that actually changes quite a bit just from generation to generation. I remember my grandfather being really into some comedy that I couldn't find even remotely funny. It could just be a generation gap. I'm sure a zoomer wouldn't get it.

      No one knew who he was outside a tiny niche. There were far bigger stars in american comedy at the time. Jim Carey for eg.

      Norm is only popular here because he wasn't PC.

      his podcast made everyone realize he was an all around funny and likable person and even a bit of a genius, every month or so I watch either his podcast, some standup, or a feature on a talk show not even his SNL cause thats overrated and nothing compares everytime I watch him, he might not be the funniest comedian ever but he is certainly the most likable

      >his podcast made everyone realize he was an all around funny and likable person and even a bit of a genius,
      I've tried watching it and all i got out of it was, Norm was an extremely unprepared and inconsistent comedian and his choice of guests was fricking terrible.

      I liked Norm but I'm also a 40 year old boomer, and comedy is subjective.

        I mean yea, he actually had the balls to say and do things other comedians wouldn’t, while still being funny, and before being edgy on purpose for internet clout was a way to get noticed. He insulted her shitty movie to her face and she loved him for it. He got fired from NBC for insulting OJ, then came back to host SNL a year later, called them out for it, and insulted the entire show on live TV. Most people would be sucking wiener for another chance but he legitimately did not give a frick. He was based.

      Norm was very intelligent and well-read but played down his smarts and erudition and acted like a regular guy, or even indeed a "dumb guy" as he himself said. That was one of his tricks, "play the dumb guy", because "no one likes the guy who acts like the smartest guy in the room" (and yeah that's very true).

      This had an interesting effect on his comedy, made it multi-layered, there was this juxtaposition of dumbassery and vulgarity on one hand and occasional glimpses of wisdom and erudition on the other. There was a mystery to Norm, a depth, underneath all the crack prostitute and dog house jokes, and you can't say that about most comedians.

        >That was one of his tricks, "play the dumb guy", because "no one likes the guy who acts like the smartest guy in the room" (and yeah that's very true).
        I started doing this and my life at parties became immeasurably better. Playing the dumb guy let's people open up about whatever they're talking about, and talk to you as if you have no bias on the topic. It's also really great when some jackass is trying to be smart in a group conversation, you lead him into a trap with your dumbness, then when the time is right you break the disguise and make him look like a fool.

    There was the time he got fired from SNL because a producer was a friend of OJ Simpson and he kept making jokes about him and wouldn't stop.

    Then later they got him to host SNL and he shit all over them saying: "So they fired me, but now they want me to host it? Have I gotten better. No. I guess they became worse."

    And the two times he was on that women talk show was fricking great:

      Early Norm is just generally a mid-tier but funny comic. Mid-career norm moves to absurdism and being in on the joke that he also feels he is above. Late career norm is just kind of a no-nonsense guy who stopped trying to hide his erudition while also not glorying in it.

    I think he became more popular on here because of the podcast he did, which at the time was refreshing and in line with Cinemaphile's preference for ironic humour. It still holds up today too, well season 1 and 2 do anyway. He is a likeable guy as well and offered something different in talk shows, but I mainly think his podcast is why he got more popular on this website

    i think also because ge was older he wasn't smiling, which nade me think his SNL days was just a puton, but old grumpy norm worked perfectly.

        Nah I think that was coming from a legitimate place. Those could be his attitudes on sex regardless of whether he engaged in it happily in the past. He just as well could've been experiencing that with his wife and cheated on her to try and alleviate it. Or maybe guilt afterward is what made him few sex as a boring, kind of ugly thing.

        Norm was clearly neurotic about sex and he hints at having possibly being abused as a kid in his book.

    No it was like a mainstream thing for some reason. Cinemaphile is just the only place that still talks about him because Cinemaphile never moves on from memes and just repeats itself.

    Ask literally any living comedian and they will all tell you that Norm was one of the funniest, if not THE funniest comedian to ever live.

    All of them funny, especially the two specials. Hitler’s Dog might be one of the most underrated hours of standup ever. He became popular again because TikTok and reels are easy ways for people to share funny clips from his podcast, then he died.

    Crazy how none of what you said was based on reality. If you wanted a norm thread you could have just asked.
