Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Norm MacDonald Has a Show is a talk show that stars comedian Norm MacDonald. There's lots of cursing, crude references, and conversations about drinking and drug use as MacDonald interrogates his celebrity guests. Questions about people's sex lives and other behaviors are often asked, too. Logos for Netflix and Red Bull are prominently featured throughout each episode. If you're a fan of MacDonald, there may be something in this show for you, but his often abrasive personality may be a turn off for many.
Is It Any Good?
The bland series features Norm MacDonald engaged in free-flowing, rambling-like banter with interesting guests, with the help of handheld blue note cards. The conversations that take place seem to lack direction, but this, along with the host's deadpan style, is part of the overall shtick.
During each interview, the cast sits at a desk on a sound stage in front of some of the show's production staff. But despite the occasional laughter from crew members, the show's energy is pretty low, thanks to the lack of a real studio audience. Perhaps longtime Norm MacDonald fans will tune in, but Norm MacDonald Has a Show is pretty weak on laughs.
