With the passing of Norm MacDonald, many fans, fellow comedians, and friends have shown their love. One of these people is Carrot Top, who was famously mocked and teased by Norm on the Conan O’Brien show while sitting next to Courtney Thorne-Smith.
During the famous interview, Conan asked Thorne-Smith about her new film coming out with Carrot Top, which Norm joked would be called “Box Office Poison” simply for starring Carrot Top. Before they could get to the title of the film, Conan carried on and promoted it a “titled undetermined” to which Thorne-Smith quickly replied “Chairman of the Board”.
Conan then told Norm to “do something with that, ya freak.” Which Norm promptly did with, “I bet the board’s spelled B-O-R-E-D.” This is arguably one of the most hilarious moments in all of talk-shows and really demonstrated Norm’s wit and quick thinking.
