Norm Macdonald Clip of the Week
This week's Norm Macdonald Clip of the Week is from a 1997 appearance on the Conan O'Brien show. Norm discusses how he combs through the newspapers (not literally, as he clarifies) to get Weekend Update content for Saturday Night Live. At one point, Norm almost has Conan literally do a spit-take, as he makes a joke while Conan is taking a drink.
Norm talks about his new level of celebrity, although people know who he is but don't know his name. A man keeps calling him Bob and Norm decides to let him. It gets funny when another man asks Norm what his name is and he has to choose between saying his real name or continuing to let the first guy think he's Bob.
And it ends with a hilarious story looking back at Norm's days as a bartender. Well worth checking it out.
