    ...and why is he looking like the fat-faced, steroid Jerry Lewis of a few years ago?

    He has limited his working for a long time. Some people don't like to discuss their diseases, ala Robin Williams.

    Is Norm ill? I didn't know that. I thought it might have been too much botox or something.

    I don't know if he is or not, but the signs are there.

    Love Norm and have enjoyed a few of his podcasts. I hope it's just weight and not a disease. But, it appears that only his face got fatter and swollen to greater proportions and not his entire body.

    damn. and you know that if norm did have something going on health wise, he wouldn't mention it. that's not his style-which i appreciate, to be honest.

    This one's a Norm classic, when he hosted the ESPYs. Watch that douchebag Ken Griffey Jr, get offended by Norm's OJ joke starting at about 8 minutes in and Griffey's reaction at 8:17. You can tell it bothers him that a white man is dissing a "brother."

    I agree and I appreciate his style as well. Hope it's nothing serious. I was thinking (and hoping) it looked like a bad botox job, but he doesn't seem the type to be vain about his appearance like the wigged one. Norm appears to be just a regular guy.

    That's what I thought. Steroids or Plaquenil.

    It's alcohol. He's clearly an alcoholic and alcohol fucked up his liver/kidneys and now he has facial edema.

    But he's not red faced with a bulbous nose and broken blood vessels. i know there is stage makeup..but he looks ill. And he could be alcoholic too. It's a great pain reliever.

    He does look puffed up. Could be weight gain but he does look like he has puffy moon face from steroids.

    1. It's a bad still photo/screenshot, possibly distorted.
    2. He did get pretty fat for a while but recently seems to have lost some weight.
    3. I think he's been wearing a hairpiece for a long time now. No big deal.
    4. I have no idea about drugs/illness. I think he admits to alcoholism.
    5. He looks mostly okay in the podcast (which still has DREADFUL audio). Check the episode from last week and see him for yourself:
