Note To Self: No Matter How Hard Life Gets, There's Always Gambling

I'm rolling out to Vegas for the weekend, where along with the usual delights of the city, I'll be catching a Norm MacDonald performance. So when I return, don't be surprised if there are frequent references to "dirty, dirty whores," or if I go on a gambling binge and disappear for awhile.

In other words, it will be business as usual here at the Lounge.

Please come back and post what you thought of McDonald. McDonald was one of my top 3 comics until 2 years ago. I went to see his show and I was highly diappointed. He came out and admitted that they just woke him up backstage. He was half asleep the first 2/3 of his set. I arrived so excited and left so disappointed. Let me know how his show was in Vegas. Have a blast

Well, the first 10 or 15 minutes of Norm's set went exactly as you described. He looked dead tired and really wasn't focused at all. Fortunately, when people in the audience started yelling at him, it energized him and then he turned it on.

It never became a smooth performance at any time, but it at least had its moments. Kind of like Norm's career, I suppose.
