THE AMERICAN COMEDY CO PRESENTS

NORM MACDONALD LIVE!

 

San Diego, California – September 15, 2014 – The American Comedy Co. is thrilled to present Norm Macdonald performing live in the heart of Gaslamp. Macdonald became widely popular when he became the Weekend Update anchor with his trademark line "Now the fake news."   Norm Macdonald will perform live for three days for a total of 5 shows September 18th, 19th & 20th 2014.

 

Macdonald was born Norman Gene Macdonald in Québec City, Québec on October 17, 1963. He began his career in stand-up comedy. Macdonald's first job was writing for The Dennis Miller Show (1992) and then Roseanne (1988). While writing for Roseanne (1988), he was noticed by Lorne Michaels, who liked Norm's stand up, and gave him his job on Saturday Night Live (1975). Macdonald became widely popular when he became the Weekend Update anchor with his trademark line "Now the fake news." He lasted from September 24, 1994, to December 13, 1997, when he was fired by Don Ohlmeyer, president of NBC on the west coast. MacDonald's last weekend update was December 13, 1997, and he left the show in March 1998.

 

His movie Dirty Work (1998), which he began working on in the summer of 1997, came out 2 months later. In March 1999, his show, called Norm (1999), came out on ABC and had a 3-season run. During the time, he starred in the movie Screwed (2000), opposite Dave Chappelle.

Located in the heart of the Gaslamp Quarter in beautiful downtown San Diego, they provide the highest quality entertainment in an intimate, venue with an old-city, speak-easy feel.
