Norm Macdonald

What Happened to the Guy

Who Beat Me on Star Search?

3/22/2012 7:25 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Back in 1990, an aspiring comic named Norm Macdonald appeared on "Star Search" ... and LOST to a Liberian comic named "The Bushman" ... who sorta fell off the radar ... until last night!

Here's the story -- one of our photogs called up an L.A. cleaning service to work on his apartment (lazy bastard) ... but he kinda sorta recognized the guy who showed up to carry out the job.

Turns out ... the guy doing the cleaning is The Bushman -- real name Lahai Fahnbulleh ... and cleaning is now his part-time job.

Bushman told us he still does comedy ... along with his cleaning biz ... and he also takes nanny jobs.

And while Bushman still hopes he can eventually perform with Macdonald again ... dude tells us he's 100% focused on his new career ... "I'm waiting to come and clean again ... that's my job."

These cleaning people if their working for themselves, make some good money. Most of them you find through friends, and they only want paid by cash. You know the deal. I had this one cleaning gal for about three years. I wish she was still around. You know it's funny when the help drives up in a new Vet:) My Doctor, I was visiting him at his house one day, and a new Cadilac pulls in. He said it's pretty bad when the helps cars are nicer then his. Of course he watches his money like I do. So don't make fun of the cleaning people:)
