Back in the days when Saturday Night Live wasnt 90 minutes of digital suck, Norm Macdonald hosted Weekend Update. His onscreen gems include, after the announcement of a Kenny G./Michael Bolton Christmas album, saying: Happy birthday, Jesus. Hope you like crap. And after the O.J. Simpson acquittal saying: Well, its official, murder is legal in California.
Revisit a funnier, simpler, more deadpan time when Macdonald hits Improv Paradise Live (5700 Seminole Way, Hollywood) at 8 and 10:30 p.m. Friday. More shows follow through Sunday. Tickets cost $26.50. Visit improvftl.com, or call the Improv at 954-981-5653.
