Subversive, irreverent, hilarious, but has a heart
14 September 2018 | by nemocurisSee all my reviews

Norm is so authentic and natural that he brings out the humanity of his guests better than any other talk show host. Although the show is heavy with irony, irreverence, and hilarious non sequiturs, there remains a genuine warmth between Norm and his guests (and to a lesser extent his sidekick Adam Egret, who masterfully plays the role of the good-natured inflatable clown punching bag). You can tell Norm's guests truly like him and some even revere him for his incomprehensible comedic genius.

Unfortunately, like all geniuses, Norm is often misunderstood. Many can't make sense of him because, like a force of nature, he is unpredictable, and is often indifferent to politically correct pieties. This is refreshing to most honest souls, but is anathema to the puritanical ideologues who currently dominate the media. For this reason, Norm will likely never have mass appeal. For the same reason, he is a true artist with integrity whose legacy will outlive most of his peers.

For those not familiar with Norm's humor and personality, the show may be somewhat puzzling at first. I urge you to stick with it. He grows on you, and you feel yourself and your own humor growing along the way.
