Comedian Louis C.K. has written the foreword for fellow comedian Norm Macdonald’s memoir.
The book, Based on a True Story, recounts Macdonald’s early years and how he broke into entertainment to being fired from Saturday Night Live. Here is an excerpt from the foreword:
Norm is brilliant and thoughtful and there is sensitivity and creative insight in his observations and stories. A lot of comics over the years have been compared to Mark Twain, but I think Norm is the only one who actually matches the guy in terms of his voice and ability. I seriously f**king love Norm Macdonald. Please buy his book. He probably needs the cash. He’s really bad with money.
