Biography:

Norm Crosby began his stand-up career in the early 1950's as part of the comedy team Eichrodt and Crosby. Norm's comedy is known for his malapropisms, such as "I speak from my diagram" and "I drink decapitated coffee". His everyman humor made him a likeable and funny comedian. Norm appeared on several variety-talk show programs in the 1960's and 1970's such as Hollywood Palace, The Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour, The Ed Sullivan Show, The Tonight Show starring Johnny Carson and other television sitcoms. Norm Crosby is also known for the very satirical "What Was I Thinking?" syndrome.
