Norm Macdonald Clip of the Week

This week's edition of the "Norm Macdonald Clip of the Week" is a segment from his podcast, "Norm Maconald Live," where he interviews comedian Todd Glass. This is part 02 of a two-part episode.

There's a lot of insightful discussion between two comedians. They look at comics who are "shocking" just to be shocking. They talk about words that are no longer socially acceptable, due to being racist, sexist, or homophobic and look at words today that we as a society will frown upon in the future. They bring up "retard" and "gay" as being words that people used as insults that are no longer as accepted as they used to be. Norm brings up that he has a schizophrenic brother and doesn't like when people use that word to describe somebody being weird.

They mix in a lot of humor and - Norm especially - go off topic with long-winded jokes, but it all makes a good point. It's a fun hour. Click here to watch part 01.
