Want to love Norm Macdonald again? Watch his stand-up tribute to Letterman

New, 16 comments

Late last week on The Late Show with David Letterman, Norm Macdonald donned a suit and a tie and returned to his stand-up comedy roots. His performance was as much about making the audience laugh as it was about saying thank you to someone Macdonald respects deeply.

Press play above to see some genuinely funny comedy, which ends in a touching tribute to David Letterman, whose last show will air on Wednesday, May 20. Stephen Colbert will replace the longtime host on Sept. 8.

And no mention of Macdonald and Letterman should go by without pointing to the former's classic Letterman impression from SNL, which you can see below.

Enjoy asking everyone today, "Uh, you got any gum?"

As Letterman winds down his 33-year run on late night TV, he's invited many of his favorite, longtime guests. Last week, Macdonald's fellow 1990s-era Saturday Night Live alumnus, Adam Sandler, sang a touching tribute to the departing host.
