Here’s the intro to my review of this hour, via Decider:
There’s nothing you can say about Jim Norton that he hasn’t heard from another comedian or said about himself, whether onstage over the course of 20 years in stand-up comedy, almost that many years on the radio airwaves with Opie and Anthony and now without them on SiriusXM, or in two best-selling books of personal essays.
As he pauses midway through his fourth televised stand-up hour and first for Netflix, Mouthful of Shame, Norton acknowledges: “Because I’ve talked about myself so much publicly, people know so many things about me, and none of it’s a secret.”
And yet Norton says plenty more that you may not have heard about before. It’s all good.
