Norm Macdonald at The Improv

In Clubs
NORMALIZE: One of SNL's most divisive stars, Norm Macdonald brings his dry, uh, "wit" to the San Jose Improv.

It’s true, Norm Macdonald is yet another in a long line of Saturday Night Live veterans still running around the standup circuit. But he’s also a cult hero. Most die-hard fans know the oddball Canadian as the Weekend Update anchor who ruthlessly skewered everyone from Hillary Clinton to O.J. Simpson. Alas, much of Macdonald’s post-SNL career saw aborted TV series or roles in toothless Hollywood comedies—ironic considering the dry-as-a-bone Macdonald can draw blood when he wants. A master of the pregnant pause and possessing the power to wring laughs from the minutest observations, see why the club circuit may be best forum for his talents. He performs through Saturday.
