Jim Norton, the talented stand-up comedian who had a supporting role on the now defunct HBO comedy LUCKY LOUIE, made an impressive concert debut on HBO with his first comedy concert, JIM NORTON: MONSTER RAIN, in which Norton covers a wide variety of subjects,including some that are rarely broached by stand-up comics and he does it with complete confidence and without fear of repercussion. Norton is a bold and raunchy comic (this special is not for kids)has a way with a comic phrase and has an uncanny ability for using adult language and material for ultimate effect. He covers a broad range of topics including gay sex, terrorism, relationships, televised gambling and takes some marvelous jabs at celebrity obsession, taking stands on Brittany Spears, Don Imus, and Michal Richards among others. Norton keeps the punch lines coming at a quick pace,apologizing for the occasional dud and, thankfully, doesn't spend a lot of time laughing at himself. He has enough confidence in his material and his delivery that he allows us to do the laughing, and believe me, I did and you will. A winner.
