Comedy is surprises, so if you're intending to make somebody laugh and they don't laugh, that's funny.Norm Macdonald
I don't really like politics that much. And I like the order and simplicity of sports. They have an ending. You can argue with your friends about it, but in the end you still like sports. I almost love the fantasy world of sports more than the real world.Norm Macdonald
I sort of try to write everything for me. I'm a huge sports fan but have no interest in minutiae. I don't remember who won Super Bowls five years ago or listen to sports talk radio. I'm trying to make sure the jokes are self-contained so they're accessible to everyone.Norm Macdonald
It got very tedious saying the same jokes in the same way with the same attitude.Norm Macdonald
