Normcore: Norm MacDonald's Quest to Host 'The Late Late Show'

2 June 2014 6:00 AM, PDT | | See recent Rolling Stone news »

As Late Show executive producer Rob Burnett told the New York Times, "[Dave's] not someone who likes to draw attention to himself.” Fine: So we will. In a time when late night has become increasingly diffuse and Dave often gets lost amid such younger competition as Adult Swim and The Daily Show, it is worth a refresher course on just how revolutionary and brilliant a comedy force he has been. We scoured YouTube to find classic clips that give the fullest (but least repetitive: no Velcro suit!) picture of just why Letterman shaped the senses of humor of just about everyone else under 50 currently doing comedy on television.
