Norm MacDonald

Posted by Maximum Fun on 22nd February 2006

I think I discovered Norm MacDonald when I was about 14, and all the way through high school he was a huge hero of mine. He’s never quite gotten his act together since his SNL days, although his first sitcom was pretty decent. I met “Big Time” Gene O’Neill when, our Freshman year in college, he let slip that Norm was his hero, too. This is Norm on Letterman, immediately after he was fired from SNL’s “Weekend Update,” purportedly because the head of NBC, Don Ohlemeyer, was pals with OJ.
