In his one hour interview for the American Comedy Archives at Emerson College, Norm Crosby reminisces about leaving his successful commercial artist career to become a comedian and how he developed his comedic hook using malapropisms. He believes having a comedic hook is the key to having a successful comedy career. He also discusses how he preformed the same act but would tweak it to make it unique for each city and venue he was performing in. He also discusses the importance of not offending the audience with your act and being a "good person" off-stage. Bill Dana and Jenni Matz conducted the interview on January 19, 2006 in Hollywood, CA. Additional topics covered include: Comedy, Career development, and Pivotal Career Moments.
