wonderguardstalker : No wonder Norm cried when Letterman went off the show. Letterman is just so fucking nice.

TayR0C : Norm is the funniest person to ever be on weekend update. The guys now are just "DUDE WHITE PEOPLE LMAO" pathetic

TheGuitaristNate : Don Ohlmeyer: "Yeah, I'm firing you from the show." Norm: "Oh, that's not good. Why's that now?" Don Ohlmeyer: "You're not funny..." Norm: "Oh, lord, that's even worse news." This story made me laugh to tears. Norm's a genius.

Karemaker : Letterman doesn't like many people and you can tell the majority of his guests he secretly can't wait to see them leave, but he genuinely likes Norm

schmidtzcargolbull : Norm is so humble about the whole situation. Doesn't want to bad mouth anyone and acts as if the world owes him nothing.

Miles Finnch : A perfect line for Norm would of been, "You know that Don Oholmeyer guy....that guy's a real jerk

drbryant23 : This is outstanding comedy - serious topic, and very little appears prepared.  Amazing how good Norm was back then and Letterman is perfect

Lonus Bjonus : Anyone fires Norm is an idiot.

Cate M. : 7:43 "He said to me, he says to me, he says..."

Emil Osorio Llanos : In all honesty, this has to be one of the best entertainment interviews ever.

Davis Nafshun : You walk into a room and then everybody will stop talking, and then so you go "Hey were you just talking about how you were glad I got fired from the update?" and they go "No, no, we were talking about HATS".

NeopantomIme : Weekend Update Hasn't Been The Same Since Norm Left ->.

gribbleparts : Why did LM duck calling on Norm's behalf? He could have tried. All his offers to help dissolved into nothing or jokes.' Norm was fired because he made fun of OJ and the producer and OJ were friends .. that's the reason most likely.

Tanmart Selby : This is Grade-A shit stirring.....and I love it!

bobby brown : i love how letterman is standing up for norm, hes a comedy original.

Aleander : What happened to THAT Letterman? He's not been this enganging for YEARS.

snuff meister : this might be the oldest video on youtube i ever watched.

Davis Nafshun : 7:40 - One of the best lines from Norm: "He said to me he says to me he says .... (Pause for Laughter)" - hilarious

Mint Wizard : The guy who fired Norm held a party for the jurors that acquitted OJ Simpson

Paul Ainsile : My two most favorite entertainment funny fellas. The old man would tell me Johnny Carson was the master, nobody would come close. Letterman,in my opinion, is the b's knees. At 12 years old I thought he was zany, enigmatic, funny. At 42 I realize I lack the vernacular to elucidate the monumental influence he and his [comedic] peers have bestowed. Comedic potency is gifted to the very few, not unlike the ability for melodic structure. The beatles, The Stones, Simon and Garfunkel etc. Comedy prowess, to me, should be thus rewarded. Then again, someone farts, i still laugh.

Chester Snapdragon McPhisticuff : I like how they were playing "Purple Haze" during the commercial breaks

John Burwood : I laughed so hard my guts hurt. Does Norm have no mercy? lol

Nikki K : Norm is so sexy!

Brian Dawkins : that whiskey line kills me every time

E Leo : I remember when I got fired, I was in shock and numb. And I recall thinking they were right and I was wrong, sort of similar to what Norm was saying. I wished I had Macdonald's quick wit, to keep joking even at a difficult time.

Nate S : You got any gum?!

Brian Lange : i love the admiration these two have for each other. as i understand it they were close "showbiz" friends, but not necessarily "real life" friends. letterman always acts so differently with guests he respects.

Tom Lovin : Ohlmeyer was a friend of OJ's and hated Norm for his jokes about OJ, a double murderer.

luuke luketer : These are called interviews.........

Zennofobic : Don Ohlmeyer is at this very moment getting raped by the Devil. RIP.

kdoeone : My how late night has changed.

Christopher Holcomb : Norm McDonald is a true hero of mine.

Roman Bielskis : 8:13 Jimi Hendrix - Purple Haze

Peter Bonde : My two heroes!

A Febianto : he's one happy fella ain't he

shubhamnew : "Hey are you talking about how you are glad I got fired ?!" "No no ... we are uhh talking ...about hats ! "

nomadcowatbk : would they had fired Norm if Dole won in 96?

Mr.SmithGNR Smith : At least it was Colin Quinn who took over for Norm. Both are legends.

Mitchell Cumsteen : Norm should've took over for Dave.

nicholas lawler : Imagine you are sitting in that board meeting, around a giant mahogany table, and Captain Cologne and Cufflinks garbles out: " Bercuz he's nart furny!"

Wawawewa : Almost 20 years later and this is amazing

Matt Stevens : I saw this interview when it first aired. Laughed my ass off then and laughed my ass off now.

Studley De Muffin : Letterman is the only guy who doesn’t let Norm interrupt him.

bokkey45 : I love how at 11:35 he's clearly referencing the Mr. Peepers sketch with Chris Kattan along with the "cheerleaders" thing with Will Ferrel and Cheri Oteri

PierreAndAndre : Uhhhh... Ya got any gum?

RaisedontheRadio : “It Ain’t Whiskey But It’s Good”... the best country music song ever!

Chris Turton : Happy Hour Don!

erlend ekseth : first time ive heard quisling being used as a phrase outside of norway. (quisling was a norwegian nazi leader during ww2)

sfochild : #latelatenormnorm

Bondek : the man, the myth, the legend.
