NORM CROSBY (Judge) is known as the Master of the Malaprop and is among the most widely recognized and quoted performers in show business. In addition to a wide variety of live performances annually, Crosby has appeared on and hosted numerous TV shows, as well as having his own series "Norm Crosby's Comedy Shop." Viewers also know him well as the Anheuser-Busch Company corporate spokesman for Natural Light beer and other products.

Born and raised in the Boston area, Crosby served in the U.S. Coast Guard as a radar operator in the North Atlantic anti-submarine patrol, where he developed a hearing problem caused by concussions from depth charges. His affliction prompted his interest in problems for the hearing impaired. He was the first national Chairman for the Council of Better Hearing and is a trustee of the Hope for Hearing Foundation at UCLA. President Reagan appointed him special ambassador for Better Hearing and Speech Month during his term of office. He has also worked for The City of Hope in Duarte, serving as Ambassador of Good Will for more than a decade.

Other charitable work includes co-hosting the Jerry Lewis Labor Day Telethon and being national ambassador for Childhelp USA. He was invited by former First Lady Barbara Bush to launch National Child Abuse Prevention Month. He combines his philanthropic activities with a love of golf.

In recognition of his achievements, the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce gave him a star on the Hollywood Walk-of-Fame in 1982. In 1991 he received the Viceroy Award from President George Bush at the Kennedy Center Awards Gala. He also received the lifetime achievement award in entertainment from Washington's prestigious Touchdown Club as well as the National Celebrity Award from the National Conference of Christians and Jews, among many other honors.

Norm lives in Los Angeles with his wife Joanie, a former Radio City Music Hall Rockette, and their two sons, Daniel and Andrew.
