seinfeld has amazing contempt for the fans that made him successful, IMO. some bootstrap, self-made man, horatio alger vibe

This is usually my favorite part and he seems to be skipping it a bunch. Would like to see a Supercut of these.

:? So there have literally been no better episodes than the first episode til now?

Off the top of my head, Stephen Merchant, Nick Swardsen, Billy Bob Thornton, Fred Stoller, Fred Willard, Larry King, Gilbert Gottfried are all way better and funnier than Carrey throwing water on himself and spouting embarrassing oblivious trash wikipedia philosophy.

what's your philosophy, good news?
Do you think anyone but the most pretentious aristocrats could have felt that way before we trapped music in vinyl? I doubt it.

i'm not saying it's good because of the bullshit high school philosophy garbage, but because it's entertaining and fun and off the rails? maybe it's just that the recent season has sucked comparatively and this episode felt more like the earlier ones?

also not sure how gilbert gottfried mocking disabled people for 2+ hours makes that episode better than this one but whatever

Yeah, I think recall probably warps the reality of the GG one, I did get some big laughs out of the Carrey ep. Just seemed weird to be like the show hasn't lived up to the pilot until now. But you know we're not really here, these episodes don't even exist!

i agree with marble. i just tuned out the shit he was saying and didn't take it seriously. but just enjoyed how the entire show was completely off the rails the entire time. it's more fun to watch shit like this than him seriously interviewing people.

i think the kevin nealon episode is my favorite

dude kept getting cut off by carrey's attempt to win over/flirt with the crew. it was annoying. i wanted to hear the albert fish joke again. norm's delivery on the curling joke was fantastic and carrey was just in his own head not paying attention.

anyway i enjoyed the interview

there are some great episodes. i think part of the latest season not being as great is due to norm not being able to mock some of the shittier aspects of the recent bigger guests.

like i can't see him doing some shit like this to jim carrey

this is true...i feel like Norm used to carry the show a lot more which of course meant the episodes were funnier

like so many of the best moments come from him steering the conversation into a bizarre, dragged out bit of some sort and that's become way rarer in this latest season especially

the Fred Stoller episode has remained my favorite because it's just crammed with stuff that makes me laugh like an idiot, pretty much all courtesy of Norm

this is a good observation. i was thinking the same during the jim carrey episode, but i was trying to balance that with, well jim carrey probably overshadows the host in every interview. makes me respect gilbert gottfried even more, now that i'm thinking about it.

most uncomfortable moment ever was when Glass made a joke in the middle of the Albert Fish story and Norm, in his most dead serious tone, looks at him and goes "Aw, cmon"

Jim seems to care an awful lot for money and attention for a fella with "literally no ego". I could feel his irritation that Norm wasn't biting about what the River of Tears meant
