If you're a comedian, you really don't want to go on after Norm Macdonald. The Canadian expat made a name for himself as the sardonic host of Weekend Update on Saturday Night Live in the late 90s.

Since then, the disruptive comedian has attracted a loyal fanbase who list his irreverent talk show appearances, his cult hit Dirty Work, and his legendary roast of Bob Saget among reasons to love the comedian.

Today, Macdonald swings through Studio Q to chat with guest host Shad. What he'll say or do, we simply can't predict.
