Norm Macdonald Clip of the Week
This week's "Norm Macdonald Clip of the Week" is from one of Norm's comedy albums. He takes a look at the origin of the Marvel superhero group "The Fantastic Four." Norm imagines what it was like when the group decided on their names. Basically, they are all named after their powers: The Thing, Invisible Woman, and the Human Torch. With one exception... The guy who can stretch his body is named Mr. Fantastic. Norm looks at the awkwardness of the other members realizing that.
Norm wrote it out and has other people voicing the characters, with himself playing Mr. Fantastic. It could be a Saturday Night Live sketch; it's in that same style. Norm used to write for the show back in the day, in addition to performing. He most notably recently wrote the hugely popular Celebrity Jeopardy skit from the recent 40th anniversary SNL episode.
