DELRAY BEACH – Mark Normand is hot – and it can’t all be attributed to the August weather.

As hot as South Florida can be during the summer, Normand’s cool, smooth comedy can certainly cut through it.

Normand’s chill, observational comedy will be on full display when he performs five times at the Palm Beach Improv, beginning Thursday.

A star on both television and the internet, Norman’s one-hour special “Out To Lunch” is rapidly approaching 10 million views and his hour-long Comedy Central special, “Don’t Be Yourself” is a classic. He has appeared on TBS’s “CONAN” 6 times, “The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon,” “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert,” Showtime’s “Live at SXSW” and many more television shows.

Normand took first place at the Great American Comedy Festival competition. In 2013 he won Caroline’s March Madness competition, beating out 63 other comedians. And the Village Voice voted him “Best Comedian of 2013.”

Sure, Normand’s show will be hot, but the Palm Beach Improv cranks its air conditioner, so the laughs will be quite comfortable.

Normand will perform one show on Thursday night, twice on Friday and two more times on Saturday. Ticket prices are $30.
