Filled with actual half truths wrapped in Norm s bumbling yet brilliant speaking style While he wears the mask of a fool Macdonald will surprise you with references to classic literary works right before dropping the euivalent of a fart joke There is a mix of humility and feigned pride throughout Laugh out loud funny while giving you confirmation that Norm is exactly the guy you think you always knewand then some Poor Adam Eget has found fame too by becoming the lackey s lackey One day I expect to read a murdersuicide headline with both their names attached to the content Norm keep looking over your shoulder

I ll admit to a certain amount of bias as I ve been a Norm fan since about the early 90 s I ll never forget the first time I heard his now infamous Answering Machine bit on the Caroline s Comedy HourI feel this book captures what to me is so appealing about Norm clever thoughtful satire which deftly maneuvers from the highbrow to the lowbrow but mostly lowbrow thankgod O mean let s face it that s Norm s bread and butterFor those readers hoping for a traditional garden variety read of the author s life and career you may find yourself feeling a bit letdown Yet I believe that an attentive reader will come to conclude that this memoir does indeed contain a great deal of truth just perhaps not the Objective truth of the author s life Hence the title of this bookNOTE some advice for those not overly familiar with Norm search the web for his WTF podcast appearance and his ConanLetterman spots it will greatly enhance your experience of this work

He is so glib, but hilarious. History will prove him to be the Lenny Bruce of our time. He has perfect comic timingand that can't be taught! Unfortunately for Norm, he is so far ahead of his time that no one can figure out how to place him or how to best utilize his type of comedy. This has to be one of the funniest and most entertaining memo

    EBOOK / KINDLE (Based on a True Story: Not a Memoir) By Norm Macdonald If you don't understand the author or his comedy this is still a good buy but not as a serious autobiography.
    It takes the unreliable narrator trope and turns it up to an absurd, hilarious and ultimately comedic effect.
    There's great prose and some nice aphorism as well as a rare surrealness to this book that leaves a strong impressi
