Norm Macdonald Is Getting a Video Podcast


The Video Podcast Network just announced on Twitter the launch of a new show hosted by Norm Macdonald that will debut next week. Aptly titled Norm Macdonald Live, the show will debut streaming on the Video Pocast Network this Monday, March 25th, at 6PM PST. Macdonald’s guest on that first show will be Super Dave Osborne. Macdonald shot a TBS pilot for a show inspired by the day’s pop culture and social media called Norm Macdonald Is Trending last year, but the network picked up Pete Holmes’s late night talk show for the post-Conan slot instead. His last regular TV gig was in 2011, hosting Sports Show with Norm Macdonald, which was canceled by Comedy Central after one season. Started in January, the Video Podcast Network releases live episodes of shows like Comedy Bang Bang, How Did This Get Made?, and The Adam Carolla Show each week. There’s no word on how often VPN will be releasing new episodes of Norm Macdonald Live, but hopefully, it’ll be every week since it’s a wonder why the guy wasn’t given a podcast four years ago as he is practically built for podcasting.
