    Just finished Romano and Spade episodes. (Skipped Sandler because, well, I like comedy.) I thought they were fine.

    But this Adam guy is the goddamn death of the show. Things keep coming to a screeching halt when he elbows something in. Spade called him on it but he kept on doing it. Awful. I did like the "Ted Levine" / Silence of the Lambs comparison.

    I hope trusty sidekick doesn't ruin Reiner.

    Excellent! Told ya he's the MAN. :)

    If anyone in the entertainment "industry" had half a brain then he and Dick Van Dyke and Don Rickles and Carol Burnett and Tim Conway would have been doing variety shows and movies for the last 15-20 years. What lost opportunities. (Moronic murder mystery series don't count.) Look at how much new mileage they've gotten out of Betty White, and she's the least funny of the group.

    (Yeah I'm kinda old; but I'm right. Except maybe Rickles; I was never really a fan but I respect him.)

    Hah, finally listened to Reiner episode. He was great.

    Eget says something stupid, interrupting the flow again.

    Norm: He's a regular Ed McMahon.

    Reiner: He's an Ed McBoy.

    BRILLIANT!

    Best guest so far.

    I listened to the David Spade episode, twice, and it was just blah, completely unmemorable. Not a good guest.

    So has anyone noticed how awful the sound quality is on this "podcast"? You can barely hear anything, even with headphones. Norm's really hooked up with some losers. No engineering, no production, stunningly unfunny comedic sinkhole of a "sidekick"...

    On a similar note, can someone please explain how anyone ever thought Roseanne Barr was funny? I just heard her Norm appearance and she was only slightly less awful than Eget himself. I remember her show; it sucked. (Except for John Goodman and maybe Laurie Metcalfe.) Her comedic persona sucks. She seems dimwitted. She's butt ugly. Apparently she's crazy. She gave us Tom Arnold (who's actually much more appealing). She's not funny. She can't act. What is redeeming about her?

    I'm looking forward to the Martin Mull episode. Norm's vaguely similar, except funny.

    Still better than Joe Rogan's sidekick, "Red Ban". Makes Joe beyond unlistenable IMO...

    Norm Macdonald, poet laureate of the Twatters, on Robin Williams. Read from the bottom up.

    (Pretty much just reposting this 'cause he's known to delete his twats.)

    Well, they announced another "Short Summer Break" after his podcast with Jack Carter. That was 2.5 months ago. I heard he was actually supposed to come back the following week to interview Mel Brooks, but cancelled because he didn't get the Late Late Show or something.

    I also read the podcast IS returning, but it won't be until sometime early next year. It's ridiculous. He wasn't even doing it live this last season. Just Norm being a lazy fuck.

    Thanks Ape. Norm you fucker. At least when Artie bails on a gig there's some drama involved. Thankfully the podcastoverse is full of interesting content. No Norm though. :-(

    Love how Norm quietly tears apart the famous bore Marc Maron.

    WTFucker: "I don't feel the pressure to be funny in the garage. [...] What do you think?"

    Norm: "I think, uh, you're better without an audience."

    We need this back. The NFL season is over and Norm has had time to balance his checkbook.

    Now I'm not sure Norm Macdonald Live! is returning at all. Since Norm got the gig judging on Last Comic Standing

    He's on Letterman this coming Wednesday. Hopefully all will be revealed then..
