He's best known as a radio personality, a New York Times best-selling author and a comedian — but he'll just tell you he is a despicable, fat-necked human being.
Self-hating comedian Jim Norton will be performing four shows this weekend at the Brokerage Comedy Club in Bellmore. The term "self-hating" is appropriate given the comedian's website, the aptly named "EatABullet.com."
The 43-year-old New Jersey native first entered the spotlight in 1999 on the Opie and Anthony Show. Since then, Norton has become a regular on the show as the "third mic" where he is well known for his radio characters Ted Sheckler, Chip Chipperson and the "lovable" Uncle Paul.
In 2007, Norton was featured on HBO with his one-hour comedy special "Monster Rain." The same year, Norton also became a New York Times best-selling author with his book "Happy Endings: The Tales of a Meaty-Breasted Zilch."
In 2010, Norton was featured as Jay Leno’s recurring featured guest on The Tonight Show where he conducted several “man on the street” interviews at places like the Kentucky Derby, the Espy's and Comic-Con — catching a few people off guard and grabbing a few laughs in the process.
Norton will be performing at the Brokerage this Friday and Saturday, Nov. 11 and 12, at 8 p.m. and 10:30 p.m both days.
