Norm Macdonald Clip of the Week
In this week's edition of the "Norm Macdonald Clip of the Week" we take a look at a 1997-ish visit to Conan. Norm talks about an early 90s appearance on the old "Star Search" show and how he did not perform very well. He finishes with a story about a heroic pig. Like most of the Norm Macdonald stories, he rambles and takes an unfunny story with a dumb punchline and makes it hilarious with his delivery.
Norm is on the show to plug that week's "Saturday Night Live." Conan mentions that the guest host is Phil Hartman and musical guest is the Gin Blossoms. He loses it when Norm replies. "I don't know who they are, but Phil's great."
Random Trivia: the term "gin blossoms" is a reference to being drunk. When your face gets flushed from drinking, you've got the "gin blossoms."
