This is one of the best comedy specials Cinemax ever aired. It follows grouchy newsstand owner Norman played by Gilbert Gottfried throughout his day working at his newsstand. There are some hilarious interludes with the various people he comes in contact with. Gottfried's performance suggests that Norman is just a few steps from being insane. One of the best quotes is one Gottfried says to a homeless woman played by Margaret Smith "Meatloaf I don't like it's like a bunch of hamburgers that got in a car accident". Although lacking in some points it is still 30 minutes of fun and I give it 10 cause I expect nothing more or less from it.
