The “Master of Malaprop” is moving on from his Hollywood Hills pad.

Entertainer and comedian Norm Crosby sold his single-story home on Londonderry Place for $5.4 million, the Los Angeles Times reported.

The 1954-built home spans 5,500 square feet with six bedrooms, six bathrooms and a swimming pool. It was first listed for $6 million in May — the first time the comedian put his house on the market in 50 years.

Crosby purchased the home in 1968 for $89,500, property records show.

Douglas Elliman’s Josh Altman, Matt Altman and Jacob Green had the listing. Keller William’s Angela Roessel represented the buyer.

The comedian has appeared on shows hosted by Ed Sullivan, Johnny Carson and Merv Griffin. He also appeared in “Grown Ups 2.” [LAT] – Natalie Hoberman
