Norm Crosby is a Jewish comedian from Boston who served time on the Borscht Belt circuit and in Las Vegas hotels. He's known mainly as a source of malapropisms that he integrates into his comedy routines.
The 88-year-old comedian is still performing at casinos, cruise ships, and at Friars Club roasts.
His malapropisms are legendary. For example, he delivers lines like “Wilt Chamberlain is an insulation to young people all over the world. Wherever he appears, after every game the kids give him a standing ovulation.”
Here is a video clip of Crosby co-hosting a Jerry Lewis Muscular Dystrophy Association telethon.
