Desc:I think it's safe to say that Norm has created his own subgenre of comedy at this point.

Multi-submission is wonky as usual, so here's part 2: http://www.hulu.com/watch/93107/the-tonight-show-with-conan-obrien -norm-macdonald-part-2#s-p4-sr-i1
Banal Intercourse
Norm's subgenre of comedy was staked out by Albert Brooks over twenty years ago.
What do you mean
He talks in a monotone and says cusses and now he is fat
That is basically an instant recipe for hilarity

He's mocking Mort Saul. The newspaper under the arm "social commentator" thing was his bit.

Suck it, nerds.

Also, I think Hulu, gauging by how butthurt people get here, is probably the guiding reason for immigration to this fine US of A.

Canada it's so great you have no idea

I used my bypass thingy to watch this, but far be it from me to inspire some one-star crying faggotry.


just so long as everyone is clear with that

I don't care what he does I'll always love Norm McDonald.
Norm MacDonald could kill all the Jews, finally finishing Hitler's work and making himself a hero to the KKK and extremist Muslims, and you'd still love the guy. Norm MacDonald could invent a Super AIDS virus and unleash it onto an unsuspecting world, and you'd still love the guy. Norm MacDonald could slap a hundred million puppies at the same time, using some giant machine whose sole purpose is to slap puppies, a machine which would be the culmination of his life's work, all those hours toiling to make an ungodly puppy-slapping abomination, and you would still love the guy. Norm MacDonald could drown your first born child, and you would still love the guy.

He's just that good.

Jesus Christ this makes me laugh.
The looks he gives to Conan are comic gold, such timing. Also, Kate +8 joke.

Norm's just trying out his "bombs intentionally" trick. It's all about timing.
it's pretty genius. ignoring his natural gift of perfect timing, the formula seems to be:

awkward preamble -> pause-filled, often painful set-up to build suspense -> woefully unfulfilling punchline -> sheepish look at conan/audience (to close the joke)

the funny part is the complete failure of the punchline to meet the expectations built by the set-up

He is a master of the shaggy dog story.
