Norm Macdonald at the House of Comedy tonight
Norm Macdonald will be at the MOA's House of Comedy tonight, so we thought we'd take the excuse to share one of our favorite videos: Macdonald's appearance at the Bob Saget roast.
He pretty much ran down every groaner in "The Old Fogey's Jokebook." It was a beautiful comedy moment, as it gradually dawned on everyone that Norm wasn't gonna tell one single funny joke, and so the uncomfortable silences became funnier and funnier.
Our other favorite Macdonald clip is below: his appearance at the '97 White House Correspondents' Dinner. It's one of the most uncomfortable 10 minutes on YouTube, as Norm finds himself hilarious and pretty much everyone else titters uncomfortably in their seats.
8:00 P.M. $34.95. Rick Bronson's House of Comedy, Mall of America, Bloomington.
