I felt that way to start but the more and more I watched him on interviews and running the talk show circuit his delivery and cadence really grew on me. Guy is like that cool, goofy uncle.

Yeah I'm pretty much with you here. He was one of the better talk show guests you could ever find. Just a naturally funny person. I didn't like everything he did, but he was unique, that's for sure, and he had enormous respect from his peers. Other comics will tell you that Norm was one of the true greats.

For those who might be interested, Marc Maron reposted the WTF episode with Norm from 2011

I don't know if there is another 10 minute segment of anything that has me breathless wheezing throughout it...it does not ever get any less funny.

tragedy: Norm (who died of cancer) makes Larry King (who had cancer) read a joke about Chadwick Boseman, who died of cancer.
