Can you miss someone who you never really paid a lot of attention to? I wish that I could claim to have been a big Norm MacDonald fan, but I was not. But after his death, I have been watching clips and tributes to him and realize that we lost a giant. He was brilliant, hilarious, and unique. Both an old-fashioned comic along the lines of Rickles and Dangerfield as well as cutting edge and current. He has some amazingly intelligent things to say here about the nature of comedy and the juncture of politics, imitation, and humor.

@Mark Walle Polemical - 1a : an aggressive attack on or refutation of the opinions or principles of another. b : the art or practice of disputation or controversy -usually used in plural but singular or plural in construction. 2 : an aggressive controversialist : disputant. Being aggressively controversial was kind of Norm's shtick, no?

Norm’s observation about doing impressions is superb: “You have to like the character” - and if you have contempt for the person you are portraying, it doesn’t work. He articulated something I always knew was off but couldn’t define.

Comedian/Roaster Jeff Ross said, "You only roast people you love." If you feel contempt or hate for the person you're roasting, it bleeds into the material and completely changes the tone of the act. Removes the all important sense of "all in good fun" Don Rickles could say anything to anyone and no one ever got mad, because there was no malice behind it.

Watching this, for someone who is known to play on the edge with his comedy, I’m surprised how soft Norm was on Trump.

@drew. The pic issue was this. Norm asks trump for a Pic. Trump says sure Norm. Whilst he said sure he was already being escorted by the secret service into an elevator. The Sure Norm remark was sarcasm but not meant to be humiliating because he knows who Norm is. That was his whole narrative about sarcasm and how people miss the sarcastic remarks and take a comment literally. Do you remember during one of his hall meetings a baby kept crying and instead of the parents taking the baby out of the room they continued to sit there. Trump remarked.. its ok all are welcomed and went on a little about the tot crying. That was sarcasm. Trump is a very sarcastic individual but not in a way to humiliate people. Some people get it some don't. I still support the man.

WTF. I thought this was the stupidest interview ever. What interesting points? He rambled on and said nothing. totally incoherent. What was that story about asking donald for his picture even about? He says trump didn't want to be president. He says you got to be humble to be funny and donald is really funny but not humble more like a wwf wrestler. A total contradiction. You cant do a good impression if you don"t like some one etc etc. If you want to do smart comedy you got to stay away from trump. What is he even saying? I'ts like he was stoned or had never been on TV before. Trudeau the father was more funny than Trudea the sun? I was an adult though both and well maybe but his father wasn't known for his sence of humor so what is that comment about what relevance did it have to what ever pint he was trying to make?

"Norm was pressured"- Doubt it. "Trump bashing"- I'd hardly call it that. "Wanted to roast Hillary Clinton more"- If he did, he would've, but I'm pretty sure it falls into that category of low hanging fruit which he _actually_ said something about. I really think you should re-watch the video while not trying to graft your biases onto the man.

I loved Norm, and I'm so sorry and sad for his passing. He was so overlooked and misunderstood. He deserved better.

I'm just glad that I was able to appreciate him for his genius before his passing, but it's unfortunate I'll never be able to meet him one day.

Norm MacDonald was an unassuming genius in many ways. I feel this interview demonstrates that well.

Fantastically relaxed interview. Considering news is sadly on 24/7, all interviews would benefit from being this unhurried.

@David DeMaria Wonder how many Trumpians knew exactly that. As Cesar Sayoc described it, attending a Trump rally was "like a new found drug."

Wish more of his followers understood that's what he was - the WWE of politics, and not to be taken seriously.

For anybody who actually used to watch his podcast, Norm actually doesn't like Trump very much. He thinks he's a buffoon. He's just a true comedian and knows when people are making cheap jokes.

He has really never been negative towards trump and either way it doesn't matter.

I don't think he ever said he didn't like Trump. I don't think he's a fan but he would tell you he wouldn't mind take a beer with him.
