And a few dead ones, as well.

Disappointed by Norm's unwarranted slam of Rich Little.

I like how toward the end Norm basically called Carrey a lunatic to his face, in the same way he abruptly tried to swerve the conversation into Tim Allen's criminal past in the previous episode.  It's the way he just kind of throws these statements away that makes it art.

I found it funny how Carrey kept proclaiming to have no ego yet felt the need to talk over Norm on several occasions. The closed captions on this episode were probably a nightmare there was so much talking over one another.

I'm pretty sure Carrey was going on about how he needs no material possessions seconds after it was stated that it cost $10,000 for a ticket to his art event.

... and how he has tons of shit. Norm mentioned an artist or comedian who had gotten rid of everything and Carrey interjects by saying “ no not me, I still have it all.”


More than any of his other guests recently I got the Hollywood airhead vibe from Carrey in a way. Yet at the same time was still entertained??

It was just a strange energy. Would have liked to have heard more stories. The Hugh Hefner/ Tony Clifton one was great as was the Tommy Lee Jones vitriol.

"The wrestling wasn't the problem."

I got some big laughs out of this one, even if Carrey seems like a genuinely weird dude. Finding out that Chuck Jones hates you would have to suck.

 

"Remember when you came and visited the set of Man on the Moon?"
"Sure. I was also IN THE FILM."

Norms delivery of that had me in stitches.

This was great.

 

Also high on Norm ripping on the names of the parties at the Playboy mansion.

So we're like two years away from a new episode, aren't we.

Read the recap of Letterman's Mark Twain Award ceremony and Norm was a part of it. It airs on Nov. 20th, hopefully he makes the broadcast. Sounds like there was a Warren Zevon tribute as part of the show too if anybody would like to see me cry.

Given current events, I think it's worthwhile to review previous episodes.  Check out about 48:00:

Further foresight by Norm:

The SNL sketch where Norm as Letterman interviews Kevin Spacey as William Hurt was brought up in another thread. I rewatched that one, doesn't hold up too well. But I took it as a chance to watch the one where Norm as Letterman interviews Jon Lovitz as Marv Albert. It still made me laugh but partly because of how hard it bombs with the audience:

Took a while to load for me.

 

Norm whipping his jacket off is pristine.

It's the cut to Sam Donaldson during the museum joke that had me in fits.

post #817 of 817

Went ahead and watched all of the Correspondents Dinner routine that Norm did back in '97. I like it because for the most part he bombs pretty hard. Not so much because of his jokes but because the crowd of bigwigs just isn't much into him.

 

It's worth checking out at the 9:30 mark. Norm tells a nifty Ted Kennedy joke, but there's a timely cutaway that gives the bit even more pep:
