… and with you!
Norm MacDonald was one of our most subversive comedians. No wonder David Letterman loved him so much. For his “Weekend Update” segment, Norm wanted to display the famous photo of that crying little girl in Vietnam, burned naked by napalm.
Norm’s comment over the photograph: “Woody Allen is dating again.”
SNL vetoed. His best O.J. Simpson line?
“What was the last thing Ron Goldman ever said?”
” ‘Hey, aren’t you O.J. Simpson?’ “
See how Norm trashes a movie that another talk show guest is trying to promote. That’s on Conan O’Brien (wish had watched more of his show) in 1997.
We close with some gentler humor found on a bike ride through Commonwealth Avenue in the Monroe-Dudgeon neighborhood.
Blaska Bottom Line: Don’t watch late night comedy shows any more for two reasons: I’m in bed by then and they’re just not funny.
