Norm Macdonald's One-Minute 'Late Late Show' Audition Is Practically Perfect

This just in: Norm Macdonald is a total baller.

Macdonald has been campaigning hard to host the "Late Late Show" ever since Craig Ferguson announced his impending departure, and last night he took it to a whole new level. In order to prove he had "the chops" to host a late night talk show, Macdonald stopped by "Conan" and showcased all his skills in a one-minute audition.

The audition included a monologue, banter, introducing a guest and even rolling a clip. It's done at such a breakneck pace that if this was the video game Oregon Trail all Macdonald's oxen would have quickly died of dysentery.


"Conan" airs weeknights at 11:00 p.m. ET on TBS.
