Widely known as the third voice on the Opie and Anthony radio program on Sirius/XM satellite radio, Jim Norton never had a desire to be broadcaster. “I went up (to their studios) with Andrew Dice Clay when I was touring with him. Opie liked me and said I should come back, so I did. Slowly I became part of the show.” It’s turned out to be the perfect gig. “It’s been amazing,” he says. “It’s like a soap opera at times. People get involved in your life from hearing you on the radio, and you end up confessing a lot more than you normally would.” In addition to his Opie and Anthony duties, he still tours regularly doing stand-up. He finds the show and his act can influence each other. “On stage, no one wants to hear some idiot ramble for 10 minutes. When you’re doing stand-up, you have to get to the point quickly.” Both, of course, offer him plenty of artistic freedom, a luxury he didn’t enjoy when Opie and Anthony was on terrestrial radio.
