Norm Macdonald at his Finest
19 February 2012 | by See all my reviews

Norm Macdonald's prime years were probably on "Saturday Night Live", with a brief resurgence for films like "Dirty Work". But the man has not lost his sense of humor and delivers jokes with the best of them.

His appearance on roasts makes him come off as not funny, because his style is hard to present in that form. But given a full hour like he is here and he just gets better as he gets going. Macdonald scores big laughs when he gets to rambling and makes some off-hand remarks that do not even seem to be connected to the story.

Such a style makes me wonder if the jokes are written this way or if the humor just naturally comes out of Macdonald's way of telling stories. For example, the difference between men and women answering the phone during sex is not funny (though it could be from someone else). It gets hilarious, though, when such comments as "Frank is obviously not getting his shirt back" are thrown in. Is this intentional? I do not know, but it works.
