It looks like 2011 is going to be a good year for Norm MacDonald (which leads me to believe maybe the 2012 thing is true).
On top of Sports Show with Norm MacDonald premiering April 12th,
an exact month earlier on March 12th on April 2nd* MacDonald will have his very own stand up special Norm MacDonald: Me Doing Stand-Up. In typical Norm MacDonald “two steps forward one step back” fashion, even though Comedy Central deemed him good enough to get his own one hour special for some reason they want to air Norm’s special at 11pm instead of the usual 10pm.
It’s been a while since we saw Norm on our TV screens (reruns of Dirty Work don’t count), but his appearance at The Roast of Bob Saget was quite possibly the most brilliant piece of meta comedy known to man.
*According to Norm’s people the date of the special has been moved to better coincide with the premiere of sports show.
