Based on a True Story

By Norm MacDonald - Rating: 8/10

He starts off with a typical comedian’s memoir and, after about three pages, Norm gives up and go total autofiction. There’s a grain of truth in every chapter, but each quickly descends into madness. It’s not just cheap jokes (there’s much of that, including the famous “Moth Joke”). Eventually, the fourth wall is broken and it becomes a smart, thrilling story.
