Like he didn't say that shit in studio all a whole even really know about either. Call them andrew jones. I think that's right. I think he knew like. I think he wasn't ready for that.

"He's he's like they got the defying but that he did it at eight fifty waited to two hours for the first hour. That show is taped me. Which is wild. They're paying a hundred dollars a year. Just like fifty states like at night or something. i guess. Start doing that cheeses. That's not bad. That's fine. But i mean it's like i guess cut like i didn't know the guy which is not surprising. It seems like a lot of people say they were both pretty private. So yeah it's not how it starts with a lot of the until kimmel where i go to the and yeah yeah i just find it interesting that the show account has no like just from show perspective. Like because we like. It'd be like um for somebody who lot died. We wouldn't tweet about. it ever shrank. Call me chris died. But that's all his. I'll i'll give credit for this to i. Guess like he did say they'll play norm. Shit nia theology or whatever they have. Because i'm guessing it's not on right now now though chill. No those years are not on there at all no interesting anything else from norm. Many other samuel apply. No we went over although g stuff. I don't know if there's anything you want and you want any you want mike. I can't think of any others that we didn't really get to. Yeah no it was just a. I did love that character. Bit corny thorns smith. I just liked office. Poises coach great great great mindful quirky soft. Kojak thing something. I love stuff that makes me laugh. Who's out today. That's like a great talk. Show guest maybe this question because nobody gives us a win. Night shows. Comedian podcast guests. But i mean. I don't know i i'll confess i don't know enough about like goo colbert fallon have on right. I don't when i grew up the best late night guest. This pre norm Charles grodin was a great late night. Guest michael keaton was awesome. Hanks was great. Yeah I'll go back and watch old rodney. But it's pretty much just his exact rick. Ozzy rickles was obviously great. Rickles rickles is probably the best one yet rodney was to it was funny actually You mentioned that seinfeld and in norm talked about rodney in the In the community cars. Getting coffee. ya where kaz kazaam norms. I swear in this thing and in gaya so in the enormous. Like i actually appreciate the as i get older. I appreciate your ability to calm you. Swearing and It like really norms. Yeah you're not gonna believe me. But i think it's harder and harder and he's like you know he's a enormous like i grew up watching rodney and i probably another influence like a weird way on on carson was great. He's the first one ressam. Do stand up. He's like. I couldn't couldn't believe it. The swore like crazy and civils wasn't funny unknowns like you know it wasn't as funny right weirdly like you know so i found that interesting to. It's definitely harder lake. There are probably a lot of shittier comedians. that don't curse and just wanna get on tv right but the shit like seinfeld would do or normal do like his cleaner material or whatever the words they'd have to come up with to replace swear. Yeah just often funnier. Yeah for sure. So i thought that was interesting to all right. Podium is here over one hundred thousand..

"Could i do george miller joe new jersey on drug as george miller. Joe goes watching wild king with my mother said at the end directed by wolfgang. Baur produced by wolfgang. Baur my mother said the say letterman was. His biggest advocate like letterman. Wanted him to replace him. I think correct wanted them to replace. Craig ferguson yep and just the network with kobe. Yes i should say letterman obviously hugest wants to. Oh yeah yeah yeah. I don't know how. Well i don't know how well normally done e every night i don't know i just don't know how much i would have loved them. How much america was like. I'm saying well in terms of awaiting success would it have just like that talk show if he could have done that format that he did that. He was doing on youtube Pretty much did on netflix. Would it work. Maybe it'd be better weekly. I don't know but like the way they did that. I think was brilliant. Here's a per- perfect. Yeah perfect for lake in the ways per the podcasts world. Where is this isolated audience who would really loves the guy. It was like a like they would do kind of like a bit at the beginning right in an hour interview and then do jokes at the correct. Yeah which was great. Yeah yeah yeah. I wish i wish i you know i i kind of fo the from normal last couple of years and i feel bad but i'm sure i'll get over it but i think we know why couldn't book them. Now where do you. Why is that just probably helped other excuse concern so i take when he died there. No jesus christ. I felt emotion. And god thought about it. Yeah i mean the the jeopardy thing was funny. H- overplay that it's kind of well. It's but that's another example though of norm saying like i'm not a good actor. But he's like that's one of the all time classic. Snl skits like tatro ever referenced. Probably as a great Threat on his twitter somewhere about the experience of the fortieth anniversary with eddie murphy. You read that in our kind of talks about. He was watching. The murphy. eddie murphy was had this crisis of confidence saturday. And they've talked him into going on every call and the of the sort of cool go people go find. It was pretty cool. I'm not sure if i saw. But i suspect that good relations with murphy. Who's in those. Dr doodle things. It didn't feel like eddie murphy done his. I don't think so. I'm thinking of comedians car. Probably aided that. Yeah but you know but it's another example like i. You know like norm this. If eddie murphy died awful but it would mean as much to me right. And he's great. I mean he's the maybe the greatest of all time but he didn't can add on the why and the woods a weird. That's what i don't understand. I guess what do you mean. Well yeah stern so much. I care for gas a bigger star than somebody else. Though the fact that he was on stern for sure whereas murphy is a perfect music comedian super her reclusive and ways. Kind of pops in and out of your life. Where norm was like. Yeah he was and he would go. I mean he was on stern. I don't know how many times but he was on there a lot and us You know and they loved him and he was party. Obviously with with artie became a big thing. I found that very strange yesterday. When he died that i look you know towards the other day than this morning that the stern show he tweeted no clips or no didn't again. I'm looking for all right. But i'm not saying it's like any way. He wasn't overly like excited to talk about it. And and i i think he's knows kimmel by category. I thought a pretty vanilla tweet like You know. I think these guys have turned their backs on. But i don't know why because he's not a liberal. I think you wanna hear the start of stern. Tried to grab i also so the radio People tweet the you know. The although field day with the subject they. They're theories always been. I was listening to one maybe a week or so ago. Their theory is the first hour of the show that was always taped like night the night before if from what they were saying today it seems like it might be the case which is three way that which is wild but then even when they started the second hour whatever mean dave had the misfortune of listening. It was an exhausting arduous. Phone about threesomes dow was clearly altered. Actor all their calls are planted every single head. I think every single ever had is oh. I don't know. Because then. I heard a call later where the guy goes Was on for like a day things. I kinda overreacted. I might i might be like centered everything here now Yeah i might be sensitive to us when probably overreacting but like This caller throws out when he was great in dirty. Work with artie. Obviously and howard goes Era we get a tom and moved on. It's only eighteen you mentioned. His name is always talks about norm. He howard does not this does. And that's a fucking and i. I always loved that dirty work movie and of course with the already and You know watch many many times in the. I just wanted to say thanks for taking my call in You know he'll be remembered in All right tom you sorry kinda was kinda but it just seemed like a perfect segue to the right arm brought us already. That's a huge. So the guy that was here for ten years enormous on a lot like because of our to like it was sort of that was part of his thing. We would come on. Bob euchre story. I'm not saying norm is like an all time. Starring guests like like gilbert. But he's probably in the top ten for me. He was on enough to me. He was because i wasn't a stern fan. Yeah so the things i would seek out would be norman stern. He's on a what i mean. I'm not saying he's on three hundred times. He was a lot. So howard say so. Let me say a couple of words about norm. For god's sakes i'll tell you what happened for me. I was taking a walk when my wife yesterday after the show and david spade texted me. He said aw. Terrible about norm. I i assumed he was talking about You know norm mcdonald because those guys work together on saturday night live and their close so i go what happened with norm. Get a text back right away. So i called him and he told me that norman died and i was like oh god it just seems.

"Did that show champions. He's no. He's not a degenerate gambler admittedly like he said like he lost his entire life. Savings a few times right. Gambling like a madman. You know it's weird that there's no like The records on him are weird like they say like. We think he has a son. Who's about twenty eight years old. He was a private guy. It's amazing they couldn't find that stuff. And i think his kid runs that i'm not mcdonagh. I'm not norm youtube channel and the channel. I'm pretty sure he's runs that because there's some videos he has like where would he have gone. Yes i feel like. They updated that channel like last night. Right yeah yeah because you talked with a lot to know sort of you know. Yeah he would hear the joke on the action. The sipho one. He was like talking about like. I'm not sure if my son's gay music. So i just keep letting them know how great it is to be gay so now i think my son thinks i'm gay and he's acting like that's okay too so both pretending that we're gay he's like i'm not sure why. But like it's he's. He's a disciples living life secretly. Heterosexuals pretty much well. I did like seinfeld very much now. I'm sure you saw the episode mike. That's what seinfeld's best i. Love seinfeld has a good older comedian. Like i wouldn't call norm necessary contemporary of seinfeld but sort of contemporary. I mean like type. Allopathy start earlier but but there were key. You could tell them what you liked. And that's when i like seinfeld right. Yeah when he has guys that are genuinely funny. Kate mckinnon on or something or something. You know he doesn't really care. Although you know what episode was great is when. He had a bridget everett on. I think because he just out of no starts lambasting. Bob cat goldthwait relief. He doesn't say the name. Yeah but based on context. Everyone knows who he is. It always just not funny and bridget ever. It's like okay well. He was good like tries to move music. And another thing really. But that's about yeah. We say the the only negative comments i saw were about the how he i guess he in there is. He defended louis c. k. roseanne. Yesterday that was his last big controversy. Music i mean like roseanne came a big break like she gave him a massive like that was the biggest show in the world. Will he also. I mean the thing. He said about roseanne. Enormous donald is. Hey there's i put those two in contact with each other because there's no one else that is experienced what they've experienced. That was what he had to apologize. Doesn't as apology was the greatest ever. Oh that's right. I forgot i because that is like i don't know if he didn't know that was inappropriate right. You've had down's syndrome right. Where they had the simmons again ask guys. Do you think you think norms aware because how they massive like guys like my age in your you like this massive renaissance youtube where people just. Yeah he's a kind of no he's like he's like. I know enormous on youtube all days. Whether you really liked was annoying orange. Like the guy that harold ickes. She's accused obsessed with you. Watch it all the time. A strange guys like but like not like you know people who are purposely bizarre you and it's like get the fuck away from. He was not so he was him. Just a strange. I i i i know. I keep like what's most interesting to me about him. As you can't put him anywhere right which i think is great the brilliance wonderful. What a wonderful unique career that. No one is ever going to have again like when tim allen dies great successful career but who is he. Yeah the fuck donald. I listened to corolla this morning and he used the same example. Is that true he goes. I didn't say i wasn't liberal. He goes down is probably made eleven movies that have made over two hundred million dollars right and he's probably fucking miserable norm. I think like enjoyed his. Let's very funny. No kirk said that name so he so he had any mayday television show. That probably produced in had pieces of syndication probably made him three hundred million dollars. Yeah and you know the fucking story. Santa costs but like a drug largest. What's your favorite. Tim allen moment right like he did something on home improvement. Maybe but like you know knocking him. It's just like there's a lot of guys like that. I remember the grunt. Tweet that grunge right. Now when he's gone like no. I want to spend ten seconds about him. I may help it thirty ish now but like you know. Where's normal. Always be around like rickles for me. I go look at rickles stuff every week every week when you know i'll even know a contemporary. You know whoever another tim. Allen type seinfeld to me is on the higher level but oh yeah but like it seinfeld like i got emotional norm. When i saw that norm died. Yeah like when seinfeld. I've watched every episode episode of seinfeld. Fifteen time right but when seinfeld dies will be shit that said right but i don't think it will affect me. Yeah yeah that'd be. There was also a human aspect. Enormous doesn't really let you in either his thoughts on like religion and just like Society in general. There's no weaknesses. And yeah. He just had a credible i. Neil young's a weird but that's like the closest career i can think of in terms of justice oddball. I'm gonna do whatever i want. And every once in a while. I'll run into something that's successful and who gives a shit. Yeah i mean. And i i think it was andy kaufman but not as forced. Yeah nandy coffin. Didn't like have great thoughts very bright guy. But you know i mean maybe this is complete hindsight. Because i wasn't alive in the seventy s. But i feel like a certain point. It'd be like oh. He's wrestling these women as a joke whereas didn't do that shit was just like i don't know on what the fuck is happening. Is that big influence on him. Was he a big influence on. I'd never. I don't remember hearing him. Talk about andy kaufman. He would talk about weird guys. Like a george miller he loved. You would talk to letterman about george miller all the time george miller and that it's funny. You mentioned that mike. I was thinking that this morning. I was running because i went into a he george miller this is like action the case i was south guy at the hotel one night and i was watching the norm clip with letterman. They were talking about their favorite joke. And it was a george miller joe and let me watch like three hours of george miller on letterman. He specialized waiters right. You can you can see like normal because also later in like but you could definitely see the influence for sure right which is a perfect because no one knows what that is. Yeah and i was trying to like. There's people i was trying to think of people who were influenced by norm and there's a lot of people who like copied his cadence or things but there's no one that you're like. Oh that's a norm type of guy. Yeah he didn't really branch you're right. Yeah because it's hard. You can't really do that right. That's true i'm trying to remember. George miller joke if you view youtube search davies youtube if you search norm letterman george miller. Maybe you'll get it. I think so. I think it's part of a couple like it is and i think it was on norm. Show right I think both norman letterman like norm. Talk show and letterman's okay. Yeah yea add. Ron here okay. I'd say i remember him as a turt- ferguson celebrity jeopardy sure yeah yeah of course. Yeah definitely i mean people did that was all over the place to feel like did the weekend. Update guys do a lot of the skits now. Snl like he still was off skit so what he was. He said Whenever they needed someone to answer the door. Yeah yeah it was always a big deal. When dennis miller who i think is the best We update guy ever. It was a big deal and he was in the sketch he wasn't in the very much..

Johnny cochran denied these claims and said just test the blood that was found that the crimes trial juror gina. rod bro. Return home this week or a little girls. We're delighted to have her back. And no wonder she let them get away with murder so almir. Nbc and had a pretty strict edict. Now i think part of this. I think if you said to me who's the most interesting character in the whole. Oh meyer norm macdonald saga. It's actually more michael's right. Because i think lorne michaels who had still had a semi rebellious streak at that point. Probably let them get away with a lot of it but then ultimately wasn't able to save him. Yeah i always about that shit with Lauren because it seems like he's on the side like shane. Gills gives them tons of credit for kind of being on his side. But he's been around for but he's also how play the game. Yeah so so in norm nor famously broke the news got fire on letterman and said and you know he was like i. Don't blame them like they told me to stop. You know and i didn't stop so i kind of get way fire me. They didn't really kill almir all that much. But but yeah. I mean he was going on there telling the jokes perfectly like it's wild. I think the president. Nbc was telling them not to tell jokes about. It's hard to articulate how big the oj trial was for people. Who weren't ralph alford. Yeah but like it was the biggest thing ever so he has to be telling those jokes. So i guess maybe to answer your question. Why could leno do dancing memorial. Well that's why we're leno's not saying. Oj is guilty. We're norm did nothing but correct. Correct you the other ones down and out. Oj simpson depressed all of his money. Making ideas of failed decided to go back to doing what he does. Best.

"There was a whole bunch of i saw that all the tributes coming in i never put together south rogan's like ripped him off the starting my career. It's like insure. did you. See it's the same exact norm. Did andy kaufman better. Funnier than andy. Kaufman yes i think. He's in the andy. Kaufman movie as memory. Serves i think is he. I think he has a small. Maybe i'm wrong but could be. You're on the other the other clip. I had never seen until he was. That's the other clip yesterday. You know who he was great with like obviously conan letterman. Everyone your boy dennis miller. Yes he's a ton of shit i've watched. I watched all of that. They i mean they. They loved each other. I listened to radio show. Dennis miller how he'll be like a a goal. You'd like a radio show on tv. It felt like like he took calls. But you know you have your radio radio show like on. Am for like a like a rush. Kinda show i think. He went up against rush time. Okay because sweden norman once enormous on the phone and they're coming back from break and dennis miller says our guest today. You can check out in vegas. He's working on his one man. Show an oda. Paulie shore give them hell weasel an orange. You weren't supposed to promote that. Yeah i saw the picture of those three. They done norm also like you know was very religious became very religious towards the last half his life. It seems yeah and was you know not a liberal. No so you know. I think some doors were closed to him. And we'll get to some people who i think you know. Turn their back audible to shrink. It was on. But you know. I it's like i want to play some clips and just kinda laugh but it's it's a tribute show or something but i. The guy is one of the five. The greatest i call him. A comedian almost like a weird strange. Like he's not like rickles was a comedian right he was like something else and i don't know what the word is sorry. There was this people. Write these books into these documentaries and talk about how bill murray is a like into me like bill. Murray is nothing bearded. Mcdonald's comedic figure like watch bill maher maranatha was he does. That's a good category. Yeah you're like it's not. He's not looking actor parties and stuff but like watch him on letterman and watch norm on letterman. There's no there's no reason. Why norm was the last stand up ever letterman letterman's favorite. Stand up ever. i think he showed emotionally. he cried. I ended it. That's kind of weird. But now now now now i kind of understand it got me a little glass yes What cut you on the star with. Well i was just gonna ask you. Does it feel like obviously the typical situation. Somebody dies and we put on a pedestal is there. I don't know. I would assume i probably if you listen to history. They probably didn't mention how great i thought he was. But this is what happened but always have great. So that's my that's my point zero if if trying to i really like but not as much they died yesterday i wouldn't be doing today so like which is a moment to appreciate didn't we probably didn't spend enough time grace because he was purposely out of the mix like he didn't want to be around that much. Yeah but i didn't want to be around that much but like the two voices. I've listened to most in my entire life would be Jim norton because the radio show and just the sheer amount of norm clips on youtube. I've watched and like fallen asleep to like. I've heard his voice more than probably anyone in my life. Yeah yeah say well. I was just going to say i. Just don't there's something about him that he was just like. I honestly appreciate all his work. Everything i watched yesterday. It was amazing. But i just wouldn't think of it like i wouldn't put them in a top ten list if you just ask me off the cuff. Because he's just kind of like a behind the scenes guy a word it. He just isn't like a big name in that world. Kevin hart the guy if kevin hart died. Today i wouldn't care feel bad for his family but we wouldn't would spend thirty seconds. No i guess. He's a big star like you become a huge star by not being that guy selling up to now. Yeah but just by not being like you know. I don't know what the biggest you know like like you know like ellen. Degeneres is worth a billion dollars right. She couldn't she's never made me laugh once in her life. Yeah it felt like a rare day where the outpouring on twitter and shit wasn't phony. You know what. I mean like where the people some of it was. I'm sure it was a collection of people. Tweeting love norm. There's almost a collective like oh my fucking god. I didn't appreciate this. Let's kind of what i he's just kind of an authorised i'm guilty. I mean we talked about. Mike loved them. I would always you know yeah. I watched it on youtube. Spend enough time because he was not really relevant. Not the right word. But you just wasn't around that much i think. Now obviously we know part of the reason why right but But yeah he never. Simmons has had. This could have done the year on. Curb is like some role with short course. Yeah but he didn't want he didn't want to do stuff like he didn't. He never really fit. Like i love dirty work dirty work in the theater. I think it's a fucking great can makes me laugh. Every time i watch watching the preston. The trunk it's great straight. See what rickles is a fucking unbeliev. You fucking unbelievable and you know and for me like an we are way nor will get more maybe later norms biggest contribution to me like we aware top three or four is he brought already stern. Yes yeah which is a massive. You know incredible. I saw yesterday. And you know yeah amazing like you said audio live norm. Bob dole outlive norms. Mobbed all crazy. that's true. I mean they had clint eastwood's movie this weekend. Still alive north. But i mean normally you but yeah What what what. What clip do you have. It's up to you. we have. We have a ton of clips you want to do the do the awkward bill clinton from the view situation. Now you want to do the kojak on that you wake to Do you have the. What do the one from the other one. From the siphon when i sent you the cosby one i love it. He doesn't mention patent. Oh it's so funny. How is that. I said yesterday right. I don't think he's sent me. That i got a different one. I don't know if this the same legacy We'll be hurt. Yeah i mean there was a comedian patton oswald. He told me. I think.

"Have to laugh and others legless shaken there. Hey here's here's what makes him such a legend. I haven't really read all the obits today but this belongs in the first paragraph. it really does. If i'm right in the orbit of norm macdonald. Today i say no. Mcdonald's the quirky comedian who lost his job at nbc. Because he wouldn't stop making fun of. Oj simpson a man. Who murdered his ex wife an innocent waiter. that is the truth. And i read all about it Last night because i wanted to be reminded first of all great he was. But how ballsy was this guy. Had an in you know guys on. Snl that's a dream. He was on. I think he was on five years. He was host of Weakened update for three years. He was the best ever added because he took chances he made fun as i tweeted this out as a reminder to kids you know because i'm always talking about how much. Snl sucks and how they've no balls and they don't go after the of never. I believe them never mocked hunter biden which is amazing amazing but You know they. They didn't they. hardly ever biden. Were kamala harris. I mean when they tell these crazy lies and kamala harris thing about freedom when she was a little girl and she just wanted freedom. And i think that was a jimmy found cracking up laughing. It's jimmy fallon estimate cracking up laughing. When kamala harris the bp makes up a blatant lie. But what she said as a child. they're all together. Norm mcdonald was never part of that. You know if you're snl should be poking fun at pow at power doesn't matter just go after challenging the status funny. It doesn't matter we'll laugh right. Which which is what he did. Yeah we could play his appearance on the view which is just you want to but let me finish the olma. The dont tunnel minor was executive. Nbc who hated norma tunnel and the reason he hated him donal myer was a close friend of oj simpson. Who killed two people. And you know when you're a good friend you know what murder get in the way you know. You don't live murderer ruin a good friendship. So he didn't want the people on snl to make fun of oj simpson and nor madan didn't play along normally don't continued to make fun of a double murderer until he was asked to leave and then he had an epic return appearance. I think it was a year and a half after they fired him he hosted and you know what he did when he hosted he said. This show sucks literally. He said they got rid of me. This is amazing. Because i was a bit player for five years. They got rid of me. 'cause they said i wasn't funny. Which isn't the reason. But that's the reason they gave. And now they have me back as host to host his show he goes. you know. i guess. I'm funny again. i mean he just mock them. He went places. No one would ever go. He made people uncomfortable and he Pissed off don all my so much. Did they get rid of them now. There's there's a hell of a reason to lose a job isn't the hell does something to be very very proud of again. That would be my lead. If i'll rent neo but that he made fun of oj simpson and it pissed off nbc. If he were on their today you wouldn't be it'd be fired. He'd be making fun of hunter by joe biden and kamala harris and they would pull him aside said no. We don't do that around here. Those guys and nobody would go out and do it again. The next week live and they would finally say you know. He's gotta go. he's he's just not funny so he went out guns blazing he was. He did political stuff. And i think he was. I think he leaned right. Maybe was libertarian. Like you but you didn't hesitate to go after the clintons or other powerful people. That was his thing. He took chances. He had balls but he goes on the view years ago. I don't give a date on this but it's it's Barbara walters was there Joy behar was there and she was young. And i don't remember when she was young but the this was years ago. Two thousand two twenty twenty one years ago with joy behar and they and he starts talking about clinton bill clinton's a murderer and it was brilliant because he just says it matter of fact it says yeah. I thought everyone knew that. And he gets to the point where joy behar gets out of. Her chair comes over and tries to put her hand over his mouth because they don't want him making fun of their guy and you know he doesn't. I don't think he really believed clinton was murdering people but he just wanted to make everyone uncomfortable. That's how he entertained himself to make everyone around comfortable. But this is so good you have to see you have to listen to To norm macdonald on with the view girls. I think we should get the homicide out of the white house and get like a fresh because we don't want anymore. Murderers just go onto the next question would be murdered. You know accusations does worse. That's just go on to the next. Yeah.

"Check that out as well at shake. Concrete dot com. But before we do number goal then we. We might as well do nicki minaj. Because it was great the fight she gonna fight with joy reid. She questioned in her own charming way. The effectiveness of the vaccine because her cousin cousins friend not her cousin or cousins friend and trinidad took the vaccine and his testicles will swell swollen up swell up and his fiancee left him. That's her warning so be careful but the backstage in say don't take it. Just be careful and that's still up. I believe right. I taken down. I i didn't scroll down. alex berenson. Who again was very thorough data driven. He was banned for life from twitter for just expressing any vaccine. Hesitancy or a skepticism. Just trying to get the facts out. There they banned him. It's not acceptable to ask questions about the vaccine on twitter on facebook on instagram. You just can't do it. That's what you were just referring to khurana that it's Been the case for for anyone. I mean you can't it. Doesn't you know you could be donald trump. you'll be president. They will not allow it. They ban him a ban alex berenson. They've been others but nicki minaj. Just fine i guess. Because she's i don't know what she's a famous rapper and she's twenty two million followers and she said that warning out which is not exactly data-based. No out just says my cousin's friends nut swell up so you better be careful. That brought the ire of joy. Reid Oh tucker calls the race late and ms msnbc. Everyone's racist everything's racist. Everything's systematic racism. That's all she does. has few viewers but she always says something outrageous to get you know. Get the twitter world going and get the publicity. She's looking for one thing about systemic racism if you're so afraid that racism is systemic. Then why would you wanna give more power to the system. Why would you want to grow the government if you're afraid that it's racist that's a good question it's like more power. I mean what solves it. Give them less power. Well they know it's not true the least racist country on the planet the least racist time in this country yeah Go back to a man. Bill maher when when kevin kevin. What's his name. The actor The little guy. I don't know do what's a little guy. Kevin bacon kevin smith kevin lack black. Come on he's a comedian. he's comedian. You can't tell me that. I mean i can't you don't know it either. I'm old kevin. Hart's kevin hart said. This is the worst time for a to be black in american history or the worst time. White supremacy is worse than ever and bill. Maher just took them apart so worse than ever to be jim crow. Laws used to be slavery opposites the best time ever But we love to go over that again right now. Nicki minaj Join me goes after rips for Shame on you for telling that story but your cousin's friend and creating more hesitancy in the black community. And then immediately nicki minaj tweets out a couple of joy reid tweets. Yeah joy reid flat out says. She will not trust the vaccine. There it is yes this is this is what she says. This is trump trump time right. I mean we'll anyone anyone at all ever fully trust the cdc again and who on god's earth would trust vaccine approved by the fda. How do we get a vaccine distributed after this broken trump's nonsense has infected everything even if buying wins so that's that is as clear can get that vaccine vaccine hesitancy vaccines skepticism she. She says she can't trust the c. D. c. or the fda or the fda won't trust the vaccine and she is ripping nicki minaj for just telling a story about some poor kid into trinidad with swollen sales. Do some research. i couldn't re tweet it though because this kind of went under the rada. Yeah she does She's she why this right. This is nikki. Manashe chaz nikki notch directing it at joy reed. Yes homophobic so we know that the case she also tweets a story about joy reads blog posts homophobic blog posts which he blamed on a hacker later on confessed and as. He knows she just apologized. I don't know that she actually confessed. You said it was a hack and then she apologized so she. She's a homophobic she's racist. Obviously everything's but nicki minaj. Calls are lying homophobic. I don't think you said that word seaward but not that seaward. I mean a really violent race slower. Yeah tour twenty two million followers and it's still up at as they got different rules for rappers. They for you know. Alex berenson or or donald trump true because that violates like every every rule. You know this vaccine. Hesitancy this racism. It's it's crazy put it in our chaplain. it does have the nice little like This little nice little smiley face. And they're so that makes it better. Yeah right well well. Hopefully that feud continues. I'm sure if your joy reid you wanted to continue serve. Nicki minaj has twenty two million followers. And she only has two million so landing. I only have two menu of twenty two million. How dare you spread such skepticism. Which is exactly what joy reid. And by the way. Joe biden kamala. Harris did a few months ago because that was a trump vaccine and now they're any put people in jail if they if they don't get the job or no madness don't believe in it one hundred percent enough of these these these vile people get to american hero nor mcdonald. Yeah i i don't think people fully appreciate nor mcdonald. Because he's so he was so odd and strange and he wasn't a movie star. You didn't turn into you. Know adam sandler. Chris rock when he left. Snl he was a stand up comedian. He occasionally was in movies. And adam sandler stick a movie. And he was a weirdo. If autumn on twitter. Like i did for a while. I had to stop because he would he was a big gambler. Gambled a lot and talk about pets but he would tweet about golf all the time and i'm not just saying tweet about golf. Say really i like i. I love Jordan speeds chance in the major in the masters. He would tweet every shot and he'd literally tweet saying well. Justin rose's got up and down from the bunk girl on Four he's only three back and you'd go. Oh my god. I love golf. You know i'd love. I will watching golf talking gulf but it was incredible. This guy had a lot of followers and a lot of famous people and a lot of comedians and that to me was the charm of the man and i tweeted. The saudi was in the studio one time on the radio. We had them in promoting an appearance promoting one of his shows and he was very nice. You're always afraid that these guys will let you down. You know when you meet your heroes you meet these suit these stars and you're always afraid they'll be kind of a dink off the air and then turn it on when you go on. The air are no trying to think of the. I'll give you a quick example. And andy north speaking of golf on. Espn not a big star. But you know we had them on. We're at a golf tournament. And he came on and he was such a dunk and he's like looking down and you try to have a little conversation as the music plan and you want to you know.

"And that's what's happening with true but consider what they're doing then they're doing is they're saying the duly elected president. I don't i didn't like him. You know he was a little temperamental. Whatever he blustery entrust him because he was a rational. Well that's not your call to make first of all secondly he was as in. We'll play some some trump. She was Talking about sean spicer. There's no evidence that trump was going to. You know nuke someone who just the opposite You're much more likely to get nuclear war with a seventy eight year old Senile swamp creature like joe biden I mean the idea. That trump was on the brink of you know nuking. china is absurd. that's only one of the allegations. The other one is that he colluded with nancy. Pelosi and chuck schumer and his his officers and told them you know you to me. You don't answer the president. I mean he did quite just read summaries excerpts from the book there's four or five things that are absolutely criminal and he should be if if one of them is true or if he were Doing this in support of a republican. He would be gone today. He would be fired today. The only reason he's not fired already the only reason there's not unanimity in the media is because as usual trump derangement syndrome trump hatred. But you read this and you say. I knew the guy was arrogant. I knew he was in a whole. I mean i've seen enough see enough press conferences especially during the withdrawal or testimony about white rage that he's so concerned and he's busy. You know reading rubber dangelo. And abraham kindy just so woke a whole you just knew it. He didn't realize he was a criminal. You didn't realize he was a traitor. I mean this by any definition you read any sober analysis of this. It is certainly worthy of a court martial going behind the back of a president saying. Don't listen to him listen to me. That's something out of a movie. I mean that's that's that's some some something you know. Tom clancy would right if he were still alive. It's bizarre and the. I was wondering this when i first heard it. I said how are they going to spin it. How are they going to present it. They going to defend them and they're found a way as you said. Oh trump was unhinged. He had to do it. Well first of all. That's not his call to make second all prove it. Prove it unhinged. What did he do other than you know. Stupid tweeting and an insane. Some dump stuff. What did he do on. what did he say how. what did he do. That's on trump. Didn't do himself any favors. I mean as much as his the ways tweeting style and and his aggressiveness. when he was with the media helped him get elected. That's also sort of proof. At least to you know to some ears into some is that he was unhinged. So i don't think it's going to be It'll be in the you know. The the court of public opinion is where this is going to be. Tried and most people agree. Most people will think he was unhinged. So oh this seemed like a reasonable action by. It's going to be tough because bob woodward wrote a book. He's worn many many books for some reason people talk to him. i wrote a book. Critical of trump. And i blame. Trump one hundred percent for that trump sat down. I believe it was I forget the number fourteen times fourteen hours with bob woodward upward woodward her clearly hated trump and didn't want to do favors and trump's ego got the best of me said i can convince him you know i. I'll change his mind which was never going to happen. you can go to trump said some dumb stuff to woodward game pullout quotes to promote the book. And i'm sure the book sold well. And i'm sure everybody who is now going to question the veracity of of a what's in the new book is going to say previously said. They believe what they believe. The things would would wrote about I don't bush or a or a or trump or their political enemies. Well what are they gonna do now if they believe it even if you spin it and say you know. Trump was irrational. It is by definition. Treasonous what he did so this puts. Bob woodward has put his friends in the biden regime. Put his friends in the mainstream media in a tough spot because this makes me The accusations against milly are as bad as it gets. I mean they're literally a punishable by the death penalty if you prove treason. There's the idea that he would survive this. The idea that he remain as the chairman of the joint chiefs remain a general the highest ranking a person in the us military. I mean that that can't happen. I mean that cannot happen. He has to be done and again if he were doing this. In support of trump against biden he'd be gone to be gone by now by by bud today by. What is this wednesday. It's wednesday had become by lunchtime. He'd be gone by by dinnertime. It'd be a warrant arrest. You know he'd be this. He would be disgraced in every possible way. In the quarter public opinion in criminal court military court there would be no but here is why a system is so screwed up right now there are still people in jail in dc in a probably right down the street from where millions right now is probably having breakfast at the four seasons A sitting there you know with stack of pancakes and the big big good eggs benedict drip it all over himself. The slob right down the street from where. Millie is there people in jail in solitary confinement for trespassing on january sixth. If you don't follow again. Julie kelley on twitter. You should because she chronicles in every day. And it's amazing this yesterday. She got a letter from a veteran. A combat veteran from iraq who trespass that day and is still in solitary in the reason given by the judge is that he was a veteran. And that means he's dangerous because he was in the military so he using the guy service against them keeping them in jail as we know the viking man he's still in jail he. He assaulted nobody. Could it be broke. Nothing you just trespassed and made howl like a wolf in the in the senate chambers. That's it. he's been solitary for eight months. All those people grandmothers veterans people with red hats who took sophie's in the capital. We'll do more time than general milley who committed treason. It's so bizarre to me that there's no we can't even agree that what he did what milly did is wrong..

"norm macdonald" Discussed on WTF with Marc Maron Podcast
"Really what is going on here. Like that didn't fucking that wasn't funny and they just wait till you stop talking and they laugh. Because they're participants these fucking. They're doing their part. They're doing their part right now. You know that's what. I loved about saturday night. Live is they could fuck and things could bomb like really only live and the early letterman. You could see people fucking borrow. Yeah no less. And there's no other place on tv every other place every every joke. It's it's amazing moment even when you watch old decapa shows like and that was a popular show and you're watching if you watch them now. The audience almost does nothing. You know he'll get a joke off and he's nothing because people didn't have the same expectations that they do now. These fucking people who run the run. Tv right made it like that. You know there's something about you can be funny without there being a ridiculous moronic joke. Every thirty seconds can accept people just being people for a minute. Sure there's at harvard. Wish talk shows with. Maybe you can do it or something. That the You know carson. You'd never see the audience know you never see. The audience listened to audiences. We are touching the audience. I mean that was the first thing that i noticed about jay and i've never done a show. I got no beef with them. I just don't want you to show and all of a sudden out there. Touching people doing is a zoo. It's funny because letterman and leno do that and really the guy who let me doesn't touch him well but i mean there. He's theater feels like a real thing. It is but it's not completely separate like late late night right but We're up in a little pen. The audience they're up there in the and six feet up in their in a box and just talking about it. Now i think probably the guy who Changed it did it. The best was Vuk and arsenio. He was the guy that could get there. That's the only time this is being said in this country right now. No but he leno's looked so after we'll slapping people's hands. Yeah i'm in This guy was the genius doing the monologue were. I don't even remember jokes. I think you just do topics. Yeah he was just talk. He was not anything he was not about saving a a moment but the audience. I mean the audience in that show was so Into the so part of the show you know so now what happened with sports show. Oh i don't know it was just a. It was on comedy central and i i watched it was funny and sports guy. You're funny it was nice not yeah it was it was it was because i think i don't know i don't really give a fuck but it was really. Don't give a buck now. You talking about to match that The the it's funny. Because people think i should like when i got five i still get asthma. Snl thanks thanks for not asking me about it. I don't know why now. I just brought it up but when i l people still ask me like fact. Don't you hate that guy. Got what no he was the. He didn't think it was funny. I get it i understand. Also there's so much politics involved that bullshit. I got actually a weird question in. I don't know if you can answer for me. But i'm obsessed with it and i discussed with people that have been on. Snl but but you come into it specifically there before you got fired. There was a point there where you were negotiating. The you might not go back to the show correct. No there wasn't ever a point where you were sort of like the not deciding whether or not you were going to renew your contract. No me no. Why well no. Because they brought me in like i met with lauren. I did the high. Jump what i yeah. I jump through all the hoops. Really i was. I was the guy. But what. I what i understood later i just i. I didn't get it obviously and it went nowhere right but i like someone came up to me a fucking writer who. I don't remember his name but he had written. He was like he was on the beat back then. I can't remember his name. But like after you know. After i went through all that he came up to me and said yeah they were just trying to pressure norm. No that's not true because i told I will learn at one point. I do it forever. I said what if i was like walter cronkite on ask for much my. I just thought i could just do until i'm sixty five. And he's like yeah but No that could have been it but it could have been. It was probably they were getting ready to to get rid of me because they always pretended it was don almir but i think it was. I don't think that's true. You just think of it in house. I think it was everybody everybody because it was a particular thing where we had A lot of autonomy on update. Well this and they tried to taito jay and everything else. And and what do you think will say. Will you just think it was a business decision. i think i think it was That we had a lot of autonomy on update which didn't make people feel very happy division hell networking and we. Jim downey it was me. And jim and jim was was very learn. Little like a Rightfully respective of jim jim on his own. So anyways I think the whole show is tired of me. Not taking marching orders. All really i think so like lauren would learn hints that things like he would go like. I don't know if you really. Because i do michael jackson jokes. Because i don't really know. If you want michael jackson to you wanna lawsuit by michael jack suggesting pass like retard just answering questions i go. That'd be fucking cool. Michael jackson suing and i'm in court with him and then he stuff to later and then right. Yeah so he would say basically in in a slightly passive aggressive way. Maybe you shouldn't do that word. And i'm such a retard the passive aggression does not work on the. I need aggression. Let's innuendo thing have a problem with. Don't do i keep missing. And i wish the guy would just go. Don't do it. And i wouldn't do it but he says suggests that i gotta that's hilarious. Are you working on some now. I'm mostly do stand up. I mean there's always like a always like poker anymore targeted thing. Oh now i do. I don't know fogarty illegal now. So i'm not sure it's illegal. It's yeah they shut down on the site. So so how you doing with that thing. Oh ambling enough Man yeah gambling is a. I don't know you know. I kind of Like i went broke like a few times when i actually had lots of money gambling three times gambling with gambling and i mean broke dead. Brooke like and So would you call yourself a degenerate gambler. Degenerate has a negative attitude certainly compulsive yeah and but I don't know what it was i. I'm not a psychiatrist. But i do know this when i would go broke because they say gamblers to lose and stuff. Yeah always seem odd to me. But i will say the three times that i went broke for a lot of money i had a very freeing feeling. I would go to the coffee shop and have a cough yet. It'd have nothing is a lot of me is Trying to get the fuck Ascetic as i can in my life really so is his anything like you would recommend if you wrote a book on zen. It would be like go out and make a bunch of stupid bets. Lose everything and.

"The word what was that part of lawrence thing. I wasn't that the season where he's like. Let's let's you stand ups you know it's sort of like that scene in the right stuff whereas i want test pilots. I want stand up comedian. And and what was the struggle. How often did you deal with lorne around that stuff. Well the great thing about lauren. As he'd do you could do anything you want it. He would tell you why is like wisdom when buddha guy right there never make sense or you always walk. there'd be like i remember one time he wanted me like this is actually a weekend. Update they wanted me to do weekend. Update with a lady. Like two of us and i was like that. Sounds like in fucking shit. Like if there's a lady anna do like what are we making fun of local news. I know now he's like you'll be hit some crazy like i think he liked me because i didn't understand what he was talking and he goes like you'll be a fred astaire and she'll be ginger you'll like you know give her the sex comedy and she'll give you the sax and i was like the dancers i know fucking so anyways i i don't know if i can do with a lady left franken. Yeah so Franken was going to do it. Yeah this was franken me so I care that much about so Because i could just stand up but anyways what happened was was funny. Like steve martin walked in because he is hosting. Yeah and lauren to embarrass me. What let's see. What steve's thinks about steve martin the fuck about anything but he goes nor wants to with the thinks. Big on on steve minds completely interested in dragged into something no part of but luckily he said out of the blue goes off. Lucky because i did this award show with some broad and they paired me up with her and she fucked everything up. I guess they stuck them and long as. Oh there's some support from an unexpected place that's how you got update. Yeah steve martin lawrence bad experience with an award show and get to run the so on the update us. Vazza fucking good moment. But i would have been in big trouble with a lady but then later did they did it with a late in dude because he kept saying. Oh remember because. I know saturday night. Live like all of us right. Yeah and he's like remember. Remember jenin jenin dead and that was shit like i remember january ignorant slut right but i also remember all the rest of the fucking shit like he had a hat on and pretend to be from the late they played character. Yeah and i. I was not interested in that. Because dan is kind of changed to dennis miller. Where where you do joke joke said you don't you're not doing a parody of a fucking did now. What what was the reaction to you when you first took update because i remember and it was definitely made it your own. Because you're one of those guys as you're sort of establishing here that you can only do what you do. Yeah i can't do. Well i can't. Yeah the big problem. I guess with me with update is i'm not politically aware at all so i was like why can't Political right you know. I can't don't know how to do it but it was interesting though. Because you're updating the way you do comedy a ride that line of like you're almost like the thing that makes it so cutting and shocking. It's so fucking plane we said this is what bullshit. No but it's a good thing was my plan to cut through the bullshit. Yeah i thought. Because i don't like cleverness that much like i always was Again what's an example of that like sexual innuendo out rather than sexual like you know what i mean. I don't like that. My mother can giggle at some joke on. Will and grace and then i can say to a no. No you know that means right it's Gonna fucking another guy. No i'm like it's the same thing. Why can't you just fuck. And why can't they say he's gonna fuck them in the end. Yeah and you get the same something cowardly about like cloaking or. I don't know psychological ship but it must be some level of dissociating yourself slightly from what you actually know the truth. Innuendo protects you from seeing the reality able to laugh at it. Yeah yeah but why god in these days why would you need innuendo. Yeah no i to me. I'm shocked that anyone thinks you could be shocked by anything. Yeah i i find that now. The only thing that's shocking is when someone tells the fucking truth which is a guy can't come back. Update i was saying i. I said the perfect joke would be at the punch line. And the and the setup were almost identical. Yeah and then we. I think we ever get a joke like that. It'd be cool and then we actually did get one joke. That was pretty close. They're not perfect. But it was a lyle. Lovett is li- eleven and And julia roberts are getting a divorce and You know people close to the couple say. The reason is because He's lyle lovett and she's so i was pretty close. That was the grail. And i don't know if we've completely got him when that that youtube thing that was going around i think it was. Where were you at a. Where was that where you did the the old jokes at the rose. I have is a roast. Yeah what was. What was your agenda behind. That i mean. What were you thinking. 'cause like out very popular and everyone thought it was so fucking. It was like they put genius. It wasn't it wasn't it wasn't genius. But i just want to know. Why did it well. The reason it was because it was a roast. For bob sag right. Who's a friend of mine. Yeah and i don't. I i guess i don't like roasts..

"Yeah you're gonna work yeah. It was a great place to start because First of all there's no industry in canada. There's no movies or television. Isn't there a little in doesn't just there might be now but when i was doing there none because it's horrible if you stay there long enough and you don't leave that you will be given television show of some kind of a certain amount of their awful canadian. Everything about the candidates sucks really well in terms of of entertainment. Yeah like all the entertainers leave and most of them. Don't wanna go somewhere mad. 'cause 'cause they weren't recognizing canada but But so we didn't anyways. We didn't have a movies or tv to do. Yeah and so we just did stand up and we thought that's all there was was just going which was fun. I just being standups going around the country. Doing stand up and then When i got to l. a. is suddenly i was like holy. Fuck everybody's handsome dinner. 'cause we weren't handsome handsome louis. Ck once said that to me like furious at some point. When i think when jay more i started doing comedy right when jay more showed up on the scene and this is not meant to piss off jay more in any way. You louis was aggravated. Because he's like it wasn't four. They're looking you know letterman before i'm fat and bald now. It is very true handsome. I used to really have problems with handsome people Like friends you know would bother me so much. I watch friends. And i said fuck. These are the funniest super handsome people ever i. I'll give that to them. Who are you guys probably harder so fucking handsome. Well yeah because people expect you to have your shit together. So i think that's the hardest sell for handsome people's like my life is fucked up. You possible can fuck really bad. You've got all your hair as hard to be sympathetic character when you really attractive it is when you started out the who your guys with the guys you hung out with it. They still around you. Still keep in touch with them. and canada. they're like The guys that were big most people canada's like it's the same every fucking Goddamn city i go to everybody. This is the fucking best comedy city rush worship and i remember i'd be on the road wherever the fuck you were. You know you'd be dallas on. We'll man. He's the funniest guys ever way to the and there's there's always one mythic guy. Go fucking kenny. That guy the funniest guy ever. But he's a heroin and if he wakes up and then he would sham. The and saturday night says in about aids or semi go. what the. It doesn't seem that funny. I guess he's funny. If you own the local hero that could never get out and then you win. Whenever they're past that prime of whatever made them popular small then they finally going to do it. I'm going to go to la rogin. Men used to be the guy meant Rodney dangerfield because i Do you remember the book. I think it was the last laugh. Or something lenny. Yeah there was a secondary. I wish i remember his name. Joe something there was. There was a character. Wait wait s. Joe answers so. I know i read. That book was like the bible. Lenny bruce biography by go and so ances- was the funny guy right that never went on onstage. That's right brilliant. Funny guy right and they all you know. I and i met him dangerfield. You did dangerfield came. And did saturday night live and he joins us with joe hansen and then i waited two hours for him to say anything funny and i was like. I don't know maybe just fucking drugs for them resentment or maybe it just took longer back. Then you know. Maybe it wasn't something about laugh efficiency. Well yeah and maybe also he was stuck in that time. Maybe lenny bruce like if he were here now would not be very book. I think goldman probably be exploited that because like in my mind behind every genius or some dude going fucker stole my shit you know and usually there's a reason then why didn't you get on stage. It's like i don't do that. Shut up and also the officers. Don't know shit yeah like you know. Every time they do a fucking article they come to you. I'm sure they've done articles. And then you you try to tell them like what's the real story. Yeah and they still fucking right what they want what they had already seen it. They taken out of context. They frame it the way they want. If you had a lot of experience with that little bit like a people i've There was a time when i was alive. Everyone hated it. You know when we were doing update the they hated the headed sandler and farley. You mean critics at critics sam so It was pretty everybody. Oh it's dad's dare nausea and so They came and the guy had an agenda obviously and But he was very unfair. Like sandler was very funny. And nobody's finding it was funny farley and Then he presented his. If these guys were all doing stick and everyone's looking away embarrassed. And i remember him laughing so he. It was very frustrated. They made farley. Never forget it was uncovered new york new york magazine and they had farley. Do a photo shoot or hit a television on his head. And i was. I was kinda funny. Farley's doing a big like crazy physical thing with this. Btv as head and then they put it on the cover and they said his comedy comedy dad. And how did he respond to you. He wanted to go. Beat up the guy. Lawrence lawrence really can't beat up beat up the reporter but he was angry he he was so he was more angry because they not for him but because they attacked sandler actually he was very protective. Well that that whole crew you were you were part of that crew that they seem tighter than most. Snl cruise like farley sandler spayed. You like you guys seem like a real kind of rat. Pack of comedic We're right because we're except for farley. We were i'll stand ups So we kind of fucked actor and like before us chris to or now chris. Rock iraq was there too. Yeah so you're all sitting around going do a character Women so all we knew has had a directly into the camera right. And that's the only good thing we were good at and but the rest of it was was was real tough and so i wouldn't. I would plead with people. Not to put me in sketches. You know because. Sometimes i would think of a good idea right. The sketch do it but but so but anyways the point is before us there was this great cast and even now does this great cast of actors right which probably should be what saturday night live is not yet and as a matter of fact thing all acting she probably preclude standups for the most part but now you know they're so there they know how to talk to each other's channel baid and i just can't remember. I can't imagine the the cynicism approaching a sketch with you guys know that's what we'd mostly do is. We'd spend the first half of the night writing the sketch on the second of the night. Crumpling it up saying i should. It was because this is another thing that i noticed coming from stand-up into because i was never had any desire to be anything other than a standup everything else just accidentally happened from. Stand up you know. But some for some reason in hollywood go i guess because of bill cosby. Roseanne barr some people who've had rice and standard. Well he can. He can build a show around them.
