Norm Macdonald, The Dean Martin Of Stand-Up Comedy

On The Release Of His Latest Netflix Comedy Special, The Comedian Reflects On How Attitude Plays Into Comedic Performance

By Doug Gordon
Macdonald sat down with fellow Canadian Doug Gordon to talk about the fine art of stand-up and Macdonald’s "menefreghismo."  
This transcript has been edited for clarity and length. The full interview can be heardhere.
Doug Gordon: Have you ever read Nick Tosches’ 1992 biography of Dean Martin?
Norm Macdonald: Yes.
Gordon: You have? Excellent. "Dino: Living High in the Dirty Business of Dreams." The reason I ask if you've read it is because — you know this but our listeners won't — one of Tosches’ central arguments in the book is that Dean Martin approached his life and career with this thing called "menefreghismo." It’s an Italian word meaning "I don't give an F."
It seems you have a lot of that same spirit of "menefreghismo" — I would even go so far as to say that you could be described as "the Dean Martin of standup comedy." Or maybe it would be more accurate to say that Dean Martin is "the Norm Macdonald of male vocalists." What do you think? Do you think you've got the "menefreghismo" going on?
Macdonald: Dean Martin’s my hero of all time, he’s like my number one guy.
Gordon: Really?
Macdonald: When I was a little kid I would watch "The Dean Martin Show."
Gordon: The Golddiggers and him coming down the fire pole.
Macdonald: Yeah. Something resonated with me that everything else seemed false, but he seemed real within that false framework. I always remember the sketch he did because he would get giant stars on the show, you know. So it was him and Ruth Buzzi there in a cold water flat. They’re supposed to be a couple. And she's in complete Ruth Buzzi garb with the handbag and everything.
Gordon: Yeah, yeah. The old lady routine that she does, Gladys I think the name was, that she would do with Arte Johnson on "Laugh-In."
Macdonald: Exactly. And Dean Martin is wearing a tuxedo. The same tuxedo that he had for the opening monologue. And he's just standing reading from a card, not even looking at her, and she's acting up an awful storm. There's a knock on the door. It's Sinatra – also wearing a tux. Oh, and they have a drink and a cigarette.
Gordon: Oh, of course.
Macdonald: They walk in and — I'll never forget this — Martin starts laughing, and he walks up and he looks at the cue card; he picks it up and starts reading it and laughing at how funny it is, because he's never seen it before.
It's sort of dereliction of duty in a way, you could say. But to me, it was hysterical as a child. So yeah, Dean Martin was a gigantic influence in my life. It's funny that you stumbled onto that.
