That was the funniest thing I've seen in a long while. HBO needs to give Norm his own show so its not focus grouped to death.
Holy shit, he deconstructed the roast!
They understand nothing.
I love this man. This is absolutely brilliant.
How to redeem a Bob Saget roast into something funny and worthwhile.
|Tuan Jim |
Wow, that was great. I never laughed so hard at shitty jokes before.
I may be getting into DOING IT WRONG territory here but... It really seems IMPOSSIBLE for Norm Macdonald to bomb. I don't know how he did it, but his delivery is so hardcoded into my brain that he could basically go onstage for 45 minutes and say anything at all with a lilt to his voice every once in awhile, and I'd still probably be laughing my ass off.
Fucking brilliant. You know it's good when he has all of his peers busting their seams.
It never fails to amaze me how anyone can make being deliberately not funny, so funny.
It was sort of sweet when Sagat was getting all weepy at the end there.
a great comedian like macdonald can do this, a shitty one is just neil hamburger.
god, i hate hamburger.
Im amazed at how not funny that was and how much I laughed, great job Norm.
When Gilbert laughs it means it's OK for everybody else to.
There is not enough Norm Macdonald on television.
I wonder if those weren't jokes from previous friars club roasts. I can see Marty Pickles delivering all those. Fucking love Norm.
I think that's exactly the bit.
Ladies and gentlemen, this man is for the birds!

It's like watching a bonfire.
It took them until the third joke to get it.
Jeffery Ross gets it precisely after the third joke
"it seems a little harsh but they want to murder you in a well, it says so on this card"
|Jeff Fries |
He made them all looks like fags
|Rodents of Unusual Size |
Finally a norm clip to redeem to pokemon skit.
gentlemen pay no heed
They would like to murder you...in a well.
we need the snl monologue he gave after being fired
ok we had it but it's gone now. 8(
5 million stars for Baffled Guy behind Jon Lovitz from 2:28 to 2:41. Who is that anyway?
5 million more for Norm.
He seems like he's taking everything literally. "My...my God! These people are all planning to kill Bob Saget! Okay, breathe slow, stay calm."
that's jim norton. he's horrible. it figures he'd not get it
Jim Norton, just sitting there, not getting it.
Norm will never not be funny.
Throughout the whole thing he was reading the newspaper and generally looking confused when someone would make an offensive joke. Fucking brilliant.
"I wanted to see something funny, so I was reading Marmaduke."
I love the confused guy behind Lovitz.
McDonald has once and for all proven, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that it's all in the delivery.
Confused guy behind Lovitz is Ope and Anthony nuthugger Jim Norton. And that should explain why he doesn't think any of this is funny.
"Apparently they want to murder you in a well. It says so on this card."

Norm MacDonald is without a doubt my all time favorite comedian.
|Honest Abe |
goddamn he's the man
|Gunny McRifleson |
I'd like to think that (in addition to obviously trying to bomb) he's spoofing Saget's "Aw shucks" squeaky clean standup bits he used to do on America's Funniest Home Videos.
Goddamn, they took it down already. Luckily there was another link up (which will probably be taken down in 12 seconds).
Wait, this is Norm McDonald? Are you sure? Cause this is funny. Norm McDonald's bits boil down to him saying cock in a monotone. But this is hilarious. What happened?
You didn't pay any attention to Norm Macdonald up until this point is obviously what happened.

I'd like to think he was pointing out the fact that the other comedians and audience at these roasts will generally laugh at any stupid unfunny joke (Lisa Lampanelli, Sarah Silverman, 99% of the other comics) as long as there's a person with a mic up there saying something.
He knew he couldn't upstage Gottfried, so he went lateral for the win. What a beautiful troll.
|Jimmy Labatt |
I cannot fucking believe this. The sad part is that he can only do this once in his career.
|Honest Abe |
good work dopefiend. you baby murderer
|Red Squirrel |
"I just wanted to say that, 'kay?"
It was great seeing some people crack up in the audience, and others with confused half-grins.
|Harold Manchester |
Every time I watch this, it feels like something magical overrides the part of my brain that makes me want to go into a full body cringe and turn off the video. The birds and the cauliflower joke still leave me in tears.
|Mayberry Pancakes |
It really is great to watch the contrast between those who Get It and those who don't. The cauliflower thing was amazing.
A million stars for dog face.
Jeez, I must have seen this whole roast except this part. God, I love Norm Macdonald so much. And as soon as someone said "comedian that didn't get it" I thought "Oh, it must be some worthless douchebag hack like Nick Dipaolo or Jim Norton."
Saget gets it. Lovitz seems confused throughout.
I would steal his joke about the gentlemen and scoundrel door, but among my friends, I am the scoundrel.
|j lzrd / swift idiot |
The term "perfect storm of awesome" gets thrown around a lot, but, well...
Wait, why the hell did Bob Saget had a roast?
He used to be a pure shock comedian, he's super filthy, but he somehow got a job as a family entertainer. It's like if Jackie the Jokeman got a job on Sesame Street. All day long he's just dying to say "cocksucker".
It's official: meta-humor is the new humor.
|Caminante Nocturno |
Rock on, Norm.
Norm is my God.
How have I not faved this yet?
