He typically looked more than half an inch taller than Andy Richter, when they were young men. This might be a case of Richter falling a bit shy of 6'1 and Norm being slightly closer to 6'2 than 6'1.

Interestingly, he has a brother who is 6'6". I don't know if the brother turned out to be a lot taller than expected or Norm turned out to be a lot shorter than expected. The former seems more likely.

He was mainly described 6ft1 in his SNL days but could look at least 6ft2 at times. This is probably the lowest he could be...

Rob, how arguable is 6ft2?
Editor Rob: at times I could see a case for it.

He looked noticeably taller than Letterman on his last appearance on the show, but Letterman could be about 6'0.5" today. I think it's pretty safe to say that Norm clears 6'1", but I think 6'2" is too much. He looks too similar to Gordon Ramsey to be 6'2". I don't see him below Letterman when he was at his peak height, so I think 6'1.5" is a good listing.

Saw him on the sidewalk in front of a bar/club on the Upper West around 1999 or 2000 (surrounded by a bunch of hot chicks). Love the site but needs a 'serious' upgrade on this one. Norm was 6'3 1/4 to 3/4 by my best estimates. Maybe 6'2 now but was 6'3.... Any first person encounters out there to contradict or support this....

I'd have gone with B-C

There is no way he's under 6'2. None.

Rob, which of these would you pick for Norm?
Editor Rob: you could argue he can look more than E at times, so I wouldn't rule out D range

Rob, is 188cm out of bed possible for Norm?
Editor Rob: he can look at times in the decent 6ft 1 zone, so 188 out of bed is quite possible

He's gotta be at least / a little over six feet - check out his appearances on Conan. Conan is super tall, like 6'6, and when Norm stands next to him, he's only slightly shorter. Conan's probably a little hunched over when shaking hands so, add a little to him. But they're def both tall guys.

I agree that one's first impression looking at that picture is 6'2" range. However, there are a few factors to consider: He is a little closer to the camera than Seth Meyers. That might give him a 0.25" advantage. Meyers is listed at 5'10.75" on this site but he could just as well be 5'10.5" (based in part on comparison with Will Arnett). Also, it's really not possible to discriminate between people that are separated by less than 0.5". In this way, it's possible for Norm to look 6'1.75" on the picture and thus nearly 6'2".
Let me stress that it's very difficult, if not impossible, on a systematic basis to decide the height of someone with a smaller margin of error than 0.5". Even to decide whether someone is, say, 6'1.5" or 6'2", you would need to compare them to people who are quite close in height to them. It's a bit easier to decide between different ranges such as 6'1"-6'1.5" and 6'1.5"-6'2".
I think Norm's range is probably 6'1.25"-6'1.75".

He looks 6ft2 here.

I always thought 185 seemed a little too low for this guy. 187 seems spot on.

Why was he always listed at 6-4?
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 7/Apr/15
This is spot on. 185cm always looked too low

Sounds about right. He's pretty tall but not a giant.

Thought he was a 6'1" guy for sure, don't know about the extra half inch.
