    Norm didn't try to make it about himself at all. He was just funny while still acknowledging Dave's retirement in a way that felt very personal. It was a legitimate tribute to a friend. Dave almost wanted to kiss Norm at the end of it! But Norm just shook his hand like a man, and then they smiled out at the audience together as peers. It was a great moment. Totally sincere while still being hilarious.

    It makes Howard's toothless attacks on Dave's personal life and the aggressive physical kissy fag contact seem even more vulgar. Somehow.

    That was amazing. Norm has long been my hero and to see him get emotional like that only solidifies it even more. Love you, Normie Mac.

    It was extraordinary, extremely touching, funny, beautiful, and sincere. In other words, it was the exact opposite of Howard's appearance.

    Now watch that sleazy wigged cunt faggot douche mock it on Monday, if he's even working.

    I like how Norm calls David the "greatest sideshow host ever". Wasn't that Howard's persona on Howard TV, the circus ringleader? Ha!

    Much better appearance than stupid daffodil picture giving Wiggy

    How touching. What a pro - he must have been distracted and holding back the emotion all during his stand up - and he was still laugh out loud funny.

    When I saw Macdonald on the list of last-week-guests I supposed it was because Letterman favors him - afterall, Norm is not really a household name like the rest of the week's lineup.

    Norm was funny, poignant, reverential and touching all at the same time; rarely seen on TV.

    Stern you will never be any of those things.

    I only wish Letterman would have continued with the "Norm Show" reunion:

    I think i am pretty sure Letterman insisted on having Norm on during his final week. If you watch all of Norm's appearances on the Letterman show you can see that David really got a kick out of Norm, one of the few guests (besides Rickles ofcourse and a few others) that made David genuinely crack up, and rightfully so.

    Norm keeping it real. I was actually touched by the genuine affection Norm felt towards Letterman. Not the usual phony celebrity blowing smoke up someone's ass hoping to get some press out of it. On top of that Norm was also very funny. A class act. His appearance was everything Howard's was not.
