Former Saturday Night Live comedian Norm MacDonald will be hamming it up with Red Deer fans on Wednesday, Jan. 21.

The Canadian comic, best known for his smark-alecky fake news delivery on the American late night TV show in the mid-1990s, will perform at the Memorial Centre. Doors open at 7 p.m. with an opening act to begin at 7:30 p.m. MacDonald will begin his 90-minute comedic act at 8:15 p.m.

MacDonald starred in the film Dirty Work, which he also co-wrote, and as the voice of Lucky the Dog in the Eddie Murphy hit, Dr. Doolittle. MacDonald was also seen in Billy Madison with Adam Sandler, and in Milos Foreman’s Academy Award-nominated The People Vs. Larry Flint.

He also reprised his vintage Burt Reynolds role in the hit TV comedy, My Name is Earl.

During the most recent Christmas season, MacDonald provided the voice to a gingerbread boy wanting a prepaid mobile phone from his dad, who keeps rebuilding his house because “people won’t stop eating it.”

The ad was for AT&T.

Tickets are available at the ticket box at the Black Knight Inn for $55.20 including taxes.
