Featured review: Jim Norton– Despicable

By | February 14, 2011 at 11:39 am | No comments

Release date: March 8 In case you don’t know, Jim Norton is what George Carlin would have been had Carlin not been such a sweet and sensitive guy. On his aptly-titled third album Despicable – over half of the track titles (“Penguins are Assholes,” “Ron Jeremey’s Giant Cock,” “A Pile of Pussy”) would be unprintable in a mainstream publication – more...

Leno employed a solid group of comedians for recurring segments-- peeps like Nick Thune and Jim Norton, guys that wouldn't normally be thought of as network friendly, even at 10 pm. Luckily, Leno invited Norton back to file a report last night from INPEX, the Invention and New more...

Was Jim Norton funny on Leno's network show?

Weeks ago, when Jay Leno announced that he had hired Jim Norton, the master of contemporary cringe comedy, to be a special correspondent on his new, presumably safe-for-the-masses variety show, I was a bit shocked. The reasons? First, I had no idea Leno had such advanced and impeccable taste in comedians. Second, I thought, what in the hell is Norton, a guy who has made a more...

Can Jay Leno’s new primetime comedy/talk show rescue NBC from ruin? Who knows. But one thing is certain: comedy will be the priority, with a slightly diminished focus on the talk.
