    I really like what little I've seen/heard from Norton. He's the only comic on the scene who talks incessantly yet doesn't annoy me. And he can roll in many different situations. I've seen him interview Gary Oldman on O&A................who knew who he was, by the way.....................I've seen him interviewed for the WSJ, I've seen him do very well on "The Tonight Show" while getting pretty edgy, he sat in with Nick and Artie...........................

    and he's been great in everything.

    So how's his special?

    I'm glad you asked, IJ. I just watched a few clips from "Please Be Offended" on YouTube and..........................he's not a great stand-up. He's not cringingly horrible, but I wasn't laughing, either.

    I think I'd put him in the "funny conversationalist" category.....................if there was one.

    :jj: Sorry, I forgot I started this thread. Yeah, you pretty much summed it up. The special was funny and entertaining but not belly laugh inducing. 10,000 times better than It's the Whiskey Talking though.
