A true original. Norm's 2011 special ("Me Doing Standup") is my favorite comedy album ever, no question. And if you like his stuff but didn't catch all three seasons of his podcast ("Norm MacDonald Live") it's a must-listen. They pulled it off the Apple store and Youtube when he got his most recent Netflix show but I'm hoping it will resurface now that he's passed. Youtube also has compilations of his Letterman and Conan appearances that are gold, I've watched them a dozen times and still get sucked in every six months or so.
I always planned to see Norm live when he passed through Denver on one of his relentless standup tours, but somehow it never happened. I'm sorry to have missed him.
