Norm Macdonald, the stand-up comedian, actor, writer and producer, is well known for his performance as a host in “High Stakes Poker”. Norm hosted the seventh season of the show, starting on February 26, 2011, by replacing Gabe Kaplan.
Norm Macdonald recently took his act to the next level with a stunning debut performance in Mark Ridley’s Comedy Castle, at 310 S. Troy St. Norm gave his stand-up performance on May 4 and 5. He performed at 8 and 10:30 p.m. on both days.
Each ticket of the show cost $30 and could be purchased online too, and reservations could also be made by calling. Mark Ridley said he met Norm 25 years ago in L.A., and Ridley loved his performance and told him that they both should get to Michigan to play at Comedy Castle. So, after 25 years, they finally got a chance.
Macdonald has done a large number of television and movie performances, and has also hosted a variety of television shows. His imitations of Burt Reynolds, among others, are one of the best moments in the history of SNL.
At the annual Comedy Awards last week, he was a part of the Weekend Update revival with Colin Quinn and Chevy Chase, on Comedy Network.
Ridley said it best, about how McDonald’s suddenly the hottest thing around once again. The generation of TV buffs who watched him on SNL, and the newer ones who are familiar with him from his appearances on VH1, are all pleasantly surprised at his all-new avatar.
