Editorial Reviews

Norm Macdonald, the iconic anchor of SNL's Weekend Update and star of the cult classic Dirty Work, is back with a vengeance. This time he serves up a hilarious feature-length stand-up special, covering everything from cheating death, 24-hour news stories, shameful sex, Tiger Woods and OJ Simpson. Don't let his laid-back demeanor fool you; Macdonald's brand of comedy is as blunt and sharp as ever.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hilarious! November 23, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This video is hilarious! Norm is the best standup out there in my opinion. I've met him before in Irvine and he was such a great guy. He was very friendly and easy to talk to. I was laughing uproarously at his show, which I was semi embarassed of but he's just so funny! This routine is not an exception. Buy it, enjoy it, and go see him live! You won't regret it!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Tough subjects made very, very funny October 24, 2011
Format:DVD
I did stand-up comedy professionally for several years in the 90's. I love watching stand-up; some of my current favorites are Louis C.K., Doug Stanhope, Patton Oswalt and Jim Jefferies. I got this DVD the other day because, though I hadn't seen much of his stand-up, I always thought Norm was pretty amusing.

Wow. I watched it five times in three days, and laughed heartily every time. It's a little slow to get going, but there are some real gems, and he hits some touchy subjects with a kind of goofy brilliance. It's the funniest stand-up special I've seen in awhile. Highly recommended.

Norm is one of my favorite stand up comedians! He is even better on talk shows! Especially Conan and Letterman, But his stand up is dynamite too!

4.0 out of 5 stars Nonchalant wit at its finest~!! July 13, 2011
Format:DVD
Norm MacDonald: Me Doing Standup takes us to the edge of jocularity with his comedic approach to standup comedy. Infamously known for his long, drawn out punchlines, and sarcastic, nonchalant wit, Norm delivers the laughs in this short, sixty minute, standup comedy routine.

Ranging in topics from death, which will leave you gasping for breath as he approaches a delicate subject with mirth, to homosexuality, which was a little more difficult for him to pull off; it will leave you laughing until your sides ache! Other topics include alcoholism, family, the media, Tiger Woods, O.J. Simpson, and more!

With a fair deal of profanity, the jokes are delivered in only a way that Norm MacDonald can pull off. Without being overly vulgar, he broaches some fairly risky topics without bearing malice from the audience. The faces shared of the crowd scenes shows them enjoying themselves and the event they are a part of, sometimes including the audience into his routine, the energy being fed to Norm is exactly the kind a comedian requires to enable a spectacular performance.

Each segment of his act takes you on a roller coaster ride of laughs, riding each as you crest to the top and coast to the bottom to be uplifted time and again. If you are a Norm MacDonald fan, you will not be disappointed and, even if you aren't, this DVD has the merit to deliver.

On the minor side of things, Norm is showing his age in this latest performance. His physique has changed considerably, his cheeks and nose reddened, his onstage presence slow to pick up; however, the punchlines are delivered with gusto and finesse.

Included in this one-disk DVD you will be pleased to find bonus features which include Norm's pilot episode of Back To Norm, in which Rob Schneider guest hosted, also included is the roast of Bob Saget, which I found to be a bit wooden and cliched and the hilarious, animated short, "The Twelves Days of Christmas".

5.0 out of 5 stars Hilarious with lots of great extras! July 12, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This dvd is great! I was so surprised to find the pilot episode of his sketch TV show on here and the unedited Roast of Bob Saget segment! This is the only place you can find it on DVD. I especially enjoyed the cut pieces that have been re-edited into this standup. If you've ever been to a Norm standup, you know he likes to carry a joke for a looooooong time before the punchline. This is an accurate representation of his material. My only fear is that now when I see him, there will be jerks in the crowd yelling out material before he has a chance to deliver.

5.0 out of 5 stars brilliant February 14, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
absolutely brilliant hour or so of stand up.
the "waging a courageous battle" bit and piece about Janice and serial killers are absolutely perfect.
there's a reason other comedians love this guy. this dvd is it.
also contains his bit at the Bob Saget roast which was absolute genius.

5.0 out of 5 stars Top of His Game December 18, 2011
By JuRo
Format:DVD
I just stumbled upon this and thought I'd give it a chance. I've always thought Norm was funny, but hadn't seen his stand up for a long time. He's older, more experienced and man, he just took it to a whole new level on this special. I haven't laughed this hard at a stand up routine in a long long time. This ranks up there with the greats like George Carlin and Bill Hicks, but Norm's style is totally original and unique.

He manages to take completely sad and pretty horrible subjects such as his father dying and somehow makes them funny. At the same time, though the subject matter is VERY touchy, he doesn't come off as tasteless or crude. To walk a line this sharp without crossing it what truly makes great comics.

Highly recommended!

Gotta love Norm McDonald. His delivery of his jokes and stories are priceless. His material is always interestingly funny and sometimes downright hilarious.

Norm is not for everyone. If you like his quirky, offbeat humor, this is worth watching. For the most part, this is a very funny special.

He is a great comedian but you have to enjoy his comedic style. If you don't like his style based on his movies or other things you seen him in then you won't like this. Read more
