totally wrong and disgusting material, but performed with a boyish glee
Jim Norton performs outrageous material, but I'd be hard-pressed to find someone of his raunchy ilk who says "silly goose" more than once during a show. He's a supporting member of the Opie & Anthony radio program usually, but also does some of the craziest stand-up comedy that you've never seen before. His special Monster Rain covers territory involving current affairs, celebrities, racism, and then, finally, lots and lots of sex. Amazingly one laughs when he offers up the wish that someone would use a crying infant as a bomb on a plane, or talks about orally raping Ann Coulter, cause it's just that funny the way he does it. At the same time he rattles off on what makes him the most disgruntled and peeved and nervous about a lot of things, his attitude is almost enthusiastic. His comedy is enjoyable for all the wrong reasons, and for the right audience- for those looking for a new shot of adrenaline in the stand-up world- he's a breath of fresh, filthy air.
