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

From this season Dave Letterman, Jerry Seinfeld, Mike Tyson, and Jim Carrey have all been good to great.

Obvious statement, but Carrey has completely gone off the rails in the last ten years, give or take. Started (or I first noticed) with the Jenny McCarthy thing and then moved onto his girlfriend committing suicide and some awful awful things coming out in the court case for that and then Comedians in Cars and now this where he is completely in his own world and spouting simulation and vitamins nonsense. I honestly never want to watch him on anything again. He hasn't said or done any new material in a very very long time. If you watch the interview again (you shouldn't), you'll notice that every ten minutes he gets further and further into himself and completely ignores Norm. He pretends to be enlightened and then the ego is unleashed literally minutes later. How has there not been a longform investigative piece about his beliefs and the cadre of wackos he has surrounded himself with (and how it actively hurts people who might listen to his theories)? He's one degree of separation from reptilian conspiracy theories.

Depressed is DEEP REST man.

Fuck that shit.

On a positive note, oddly enough, this was the episode that Norm was on his toes, totally engaged and not on Xanax.

i honestly can't imagine that norm doesn't think jim carrey's slapstick humor is dumb and him not being able to make fun of it or carrey's belief system that he could barely articulate was kind of disappointing.

the jokes about the spine and jesus being a coincidence and some guy reading the word "depressed" and coming up with "deep rest" were really good and subtle, but i just wanted way more of that. i still liked the episode overall though.
