This is a classic bit from Norm on Conan's show. Apparently, Norm had already had a segment and when they went to commercial he got up to leave and they asked him to stay for another segment. He had nothing prepared so he took a 30 second joke he had heard from Louis CK and turned it into a much longer joke, a variation of a Dostoyevsky novel. This was improvised. So much of his humor was like this. I will miss his voice.
