Norman Gene "Norm" MacDonald -- (born October 17, 1963, in Quebec City, Quebec) is a famous stand-up comedian, writer, actor, and TV show host (no relation to Chad MacDonald). He is perhaps best known from Saturday Night Live, where he anchored Weekend Update for five years. He also starred in "The Norm Show" from March 1999 through April 2001. Most recently, he has a new show on Comedy Central titled "Sports Show with Norm MacDonald", which is a sports version of "The Soup" or "Tosh.0", although Comedy Central hopes it will remind viewers of his work on Weekend Update.
Norm MacDonald released a 2006 sketch-comedy album called Ridiculous in which he re-enacts the naming of the Fantastic Four, he provides color commentary as a high-stakes gambler for a fictional NFL game between the Jets and Jaguars, his SNL character Stan Hooper comes between Clark Kent & Lois Lane, and more. Unfortunately, his appearance on "The Daily Show" to promote the album was funnier than the CD itself.
Comedy Central ranked him at #83 in its list of the 100 Greatest Stand-ups of All Time.
