Norm Crosby
Wiki

Norm Crosby (born September 15, 1927) is an American comedian sometimes associated with the Borscht Belt who often appeared on television in the 1970s. He is best known for his use of malapropisms and is often called The Master of Malaprop. He was born in Boston.

Crosby went solo as a standup comedian, adopting a friendly, blue collar, guy-next-door attitude in the 1950s. Norm Crosby refined his standup monologues by interpolating malapropisms.

In the late 1970s and early 1980s, Crosby became a commercial pitchman for Anheuser-Busch Natural Light Beer.
