In this episode, I'm joined by my good friend Scott Hiam. We're going to take a look at the impact of the life of comedian Norm Macdonald. I will tell my story of the time that I met the comedian in Arizona, and the impact that it had on me--even to this day. We're going to discuss how Norm Macdonald's comedy differed from others, and we talk about what it means to be a "comedian's comedian," and whether or not that tagline actually fit the enigmatic Norm Macdonald. We also spend some time thinking about Macdonald's decision to keep his 9-year struggle with cancer a secret from even many of the people he loved. Although we respect his personal right to do so, we consider how such a decision might impact those who are left to grieve. More than anything, you're going to hear about how two stupid teenage boys went to the movies in 1998 to watch a movie that apparently no one loved at the time, but that is now a "cult classic." I hope our respect for the comedian and the work that he has done comes through in our discussion. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family and those who loved him dearly.
