September 19, 8:00 PM, Casino Regina Show Lounge
Norm Macdonald is perhaps best known for his five seasons as a cast member on “Saturday Night Live” (SNL). For three years Macdonald anchored “Weekend Update”, SNL’s longest running recurring sketch. Macdonald also wrote for the popular ABC sitcom “Roseanne” and starred in “The Norm Show” from 1999 to 2001. Comedy Central named Macdonald #83 on the five part miniseries “100 Greatest Stand-ups of All Time”. He is also noted as one of Conan O'Brien's favourite and most frequent guests on his various talk shows.
Aside from his notable characterizations of Bob Dole and Burt Reynolds, Macdonald proved that his acerbic wit and writing were not contained to the small screen. In 1998, Macdonald co-wrote and starred in the comedic film Dirty Work. Directed by Bob Saget and released by MGM, this film became an instant comedy cult classic. Macdonald also played the voice of “Lucky”, the dog in all three of the Eddie Murphy remakes of Dr. Doolittle. Macdonald was also seen in the hit comedy, Billy Madison, with Adam Sandler in 1995. In 1996, Macdonald played a network reporter in Milos Foreman's Academy Award-nominated film, The People Vs. Larry Flint, and he also appeared in Foreman’s 1999 Andy Kaufman biopic, Man on the Moon, which grossed $45.6 million worldwide.
Macdonald replaced Gabe Kaplan as commentator on the seventh season of “High Stakes Poker” on GSN. The talent roster included Drew Carey, Bill Engvall and Jerry Springer. With a minimum cash buy-in of $200,000 and maximum of $500,000, “High Stakes Poker” is the premiere cash game in the history of television.
