Norm Macdonald Has a Show
From the Daily Dot
On Norm Macdonald's new talk show, there's no audience, no band, no monologue. The walls that often exist on late night are stripped away, but Norm Macdonald Has a Show still doesn't feel that radical. As a conversationalist, Macdonald isn't as by-the-book as the Jimmys of late night; he interrupts guests, redirects the conversation, loses the thread. He does get some good banter out of his guests and has a talent for sifting out true(ish) Hollywood stories. But he's still planted in the classic era of comedy, where many of his heroes originated, while ideas about comedy and standup change elsewhere.
