YMMV: Norm MacDonald

  • Crowning Moment of Funny: His Take That against SNL when he returned to host the show after being fired (season 25 episode with musical guests Snoop Dogg, Eminem, and Dr. Dre) His whole monologue was about this, pointing out that he was fired for not being funny but was now qualified to host the show and, believing he hadn't gotten any funnier, deduced that the only reason he was brought back was because the show has gotten bad ever since he left (which was met with laughter, cheers, and some mild booing). SNL, to its credit, continues to air that episode in it's reruns and put it in the Best of Norm compilation. Also a Crowning Moment of Awesome, as he was still pretty sore over being fired and took a shot at the show the only way he could: by joking about it.
