This was a comedy night for comedians. It's kind of like how The Aristocrats was maybe only funny to those "in on the joke," that's how I felt about Norm.

Yes, he came out about an hour late because he'd just woken up (probably from passing out...continued

The last poster didn't understand that Norm does not read the news and it's been 15 years since his SNL days. I've seen 5 or 6 times over this period and while this wasn't his best- he still killed and left the audience wanting more after doing an...continued

Fantastic, Tremendous and Excellent would all be understatements.

Norm is as funny as ever.

And the two opening acts were surprisingly good.

I wish I could have stayed for the late show, too. Even if all the material was repeated...continued

NORM MACDONALD is a dark guy, he's intelligent but low key about it. Nice to see a comedian who doesn't feel the need to bounce around the room and talk about his nether-regions.

The two opening comedians were great. The host whose name escapes...continued

Fantastic. His openers, particularly Joe Klocek, were particularly awesome.

I absolutely loved seeing Norm MacDonald on "Conan" and other talk shows, so was expecting that his stand-up would be equally hilarious, but I was really disappointed -- especially since one week ago, I'd seen Patton Oswalt, probably the most...continued

Whenever possible, go for the late show - you never know what will happen! That was definitely the case with Norm, who seemed to freestyle through his late set of well over an hour. He had us on the floor! The MC (wish I could remember his name)...continued

Norm was hilarious as usual. And both he and Kevin Farley very generously stayed after the show to pose for pictures with fans. He made my husband's day!

Last time we saw Norm was at the Warfield and it was the worst experience ever for seating and service.
I was SO releieved when I saw that Cobb;s had booked Norm this time. I love Cobb's, I never have to wait for than a couple minutes to get in,...continued

I'VE ALWAYS LOVED NORM MACDONALD.
NOT LAST NIGHT. I HOPE IT WAS JUST A BAD NIGHT.
OTHERWISE, HE SHOULD STICK TO TV AND MOVIES.

I didn't enjoy his humor at all. Not my kind of humor. Too many "dumb" jokes for a very intellectual San Francisco crowd.

I think Norm MacDonald is hilarious from what I've seen from him over the years on televsion and was very much looking forward to seeing him live and we got front row seats (got there early enough) which were ideal for this large venue. ...continued

All the comedians were solid. Norm was great! There were some inconsiderate, obnoxious people talking in the audience during the show, but overall- wonderful time.

Norm got off to a rocky start (I thought), but he hit his stride and gave the crowd some great laughs. Joe Downs and special guest Larry "Bubbles" Brown were hilarious.

About 20 minutes into the show, he started into a tangent that ended about an hour later. (It was one of the funniest asides I'd ever heard).

Either he did this intentionally (the ensuing hilarity highlighting his perfect delivery), or on the...continued

Disappointing. Norm is one of my favorite SNL (former/present) news anchors, and I’ve enjoyed watching his stand-up on TV. Unfortunately on this night, the humor and wit were definitely lacking. There was nothing near a cohesive routine, story,...continued
