krillin from Dragonball

How Much Art posted:

There was a show that Sam Simon was developing for him and there was a lot of behind the scenes work being done on it, and apparently he ended up just disappearing and never showed up again so they cancelled the show. Sam tried and tried to reach him but couldn't. Supposedly it was related to gambling.

Also I believe they ended up getting Adam Carolla to do the voice of Death on Family Guy because Norm was unreliable and flakey, not showing up for recording sessions and what not. There are TV and podcast appearances he's just not shown up for too... I think I heard things about him not showing up for SNL rehearsals...

I think it was Artie Lange who told a story about how Norm planned to pull a major prank when he was hosting SNL. The plan being, once he was done his monologue (which if you look it up is not very flattering of SNL), he would immediately head to the elevators and leave the building. Apparently he decided not to at the last minute, deciding it would be career suicide, not to mention a dick move.
It cracks me up that the only thing Norm does consistently is play the voice of a talking dog every few years, which also sucks because he is a genuinely good comedian.

Norm favorited one of my dumbass tweets. My life is complete. Have to agree with you, Norm's the only reason I've ever checked twitter regularly.

Yeah. Norm's a goddamn treasure. I would've never thought he would get this into twitter. At least we can constantly hear from him.

Norm is claiming on twitter that 1000 followers on his YouTube will result in the return of the podcast. Probably bullshit but I'm subscribing just in case.

It's not even his youtube, it's this one and it didn't hit 1,000 by midnight like he stipulated

Nah he's linked to that kid's videos on several occasions. It was probably a goof either way but I'd have liked to see what would happen if it hit 1k.

You think Norm could give him a few pointers on not crossing around your camera angles and breaking the line of sight with the viewer. Pretty funny stuff however, hope he keeps at it.

I think Norm is intentionally playing up his flakiness at this point. This HAS to be intentional, right?

I can only find these two promos of that episode. The full version is bound to spring up somewhere though.

Norm Macdonald has great stand-up, guest appearances and memorable moments as a host.

But I would stop working too when so many amateurs are trying to make money off your name.
