Norm MacDonald at “The Grand” Sunday Night

Published on: 2011/03/04 - in Releases

Comedian Norm MacDonald is set to appear on the Grand Theatre stage Sunday, March 6, at 7:30 p.m. His performance in Kingston kicks off his five-show tour throughout Ontario.

The former Saturday Night Live cast member is perhaps best known for his offbeat delivery of “the fake news” for five seasons; he is a major comedic presence. Aside from his notable characterizations of Bob Dole and Burt Reynolds, MacDonald proved that his sharp wit and writing were not to be contained to just the small screen.

He starred in the film Dirty Work, which he also co-wrote; and, as the voice of Lucky the Dog in the Eddie Murphy hit, Dr. Doolittle. MacDonald was also seen in Billy Madison with Adam Sandler, and in Milos Foreman’s Academy Award-nominated The People Vs. Larry Flint.

Just weeks ago, Comedy Central announced that MacDonald will be starring in “Sports Show with Norm MacDonald”. Taped in front of a live studio audience, MacDonald will discuss controversial and current sports stories from around the world. It is set to premiere this April.

The Canadian funnyman has also recently (and successfully) taken to Twitter to update his fans and to hilariously comment on society. You can follow MacDonald’s frequent updates at
