Adam Sandler is on the road with all his comedy pals for Netflix’s Here Comes The Funny tour. This includes Nick Swardson, David Spade, and Rob Schneider along the way and a slew of special guests like Tim Meadows and the fantastic Norm Macdonald. That’s an official title, of course, which Norm proves almost every time he’s on TV. His last time on Conan was weird and fun, forcing the host to lose it many times throughout the interview.
Thursday was more of the same, with Norm outshining Sandler and the rest of the group during a huge chat. Better yet, he did it all by just being the Norm that people know and love. Gracious, funny, kind, and much more. You get a lot of this in the first segment when he and Sandler are discussing their first movie together, Billy Madison. While it’s a lot to describe with words, he makes the entire chat worth it and really sells the story. I can’t really blame the other guys for not bringing top notch comedy after being on the road night after night, but there are a few moments in there.
The end of the interview really shows the depth of the friendship between these guys, giving all of them a chance to give Conan a little praise for his successes over the years and to look back on Conan’s big move from SNL to Late Night. Macdonald also turns on the emotions a bit to thank Sandler and the rest for being so kind. It’s nice, even if it is preceded by a joke about sucking off David Spade.
The interview closes out with Sandler picking up the guitar to sing a tune about saying goodbye to an “Old Chair.” It’s no “Hanukkah Song,” but it’s nice to see Sandler doing something other than these movies we’ve seen over the past few years.
