And here’s Norm being a legend in case anyone hasn’t seen this yet:
is this like meta-comedy where we are supposed to be laughing at the fact that he is reading a series of other people's jokes for the first time and sometimes getting confused about what he is reading?
the tweets after that one say he was doing a meta-joke/protest to the idea of mean roasts bc he was asked to roast big bob but didnt want to so he took a book of lame jokes his dad gave him as a gift from the 50s and read them off of cue cards w/ intentionally terrible delivery. i dont think that makes it any funnier for me but it is kind of a curious spectacle, especially watching the all the cuts to the other comedians laughing and literally everyone else sitting quietly, confused
the video makes way more sense then
Yeah, it’s more of a spectacle than it is a series of funny jokes. It’s a guy going on national TV and willing to straight bomb because roasts are fucking stupid.
I think there is a “meta” to it in that the jokes he is telling aren’t all that much more stupid than saying Lisa Lampanelli fucks black guys for the 18,000,000th time. But mostly, I think it’s just kind of endearing.
thanks youtube algorithms, came across this one, this was funny as hell but also this was like 2 weeks after he died.
