 Norm Macdonald passes away at 61
Hello everyone. Today we lost another great comedian Norm Macdonald. Norm was born in Quebec City in 1959. He started out doing standup in The Ottawa and Montreal area and landed a writing gig on Roseanne. He shorty after found his niche and landed a job on SNL. Most of his fame came from the Weekend Update skits where his monotone, bad jokes, and puns were done so well they were hilarious. Of course he would go on to do many figures such as Larry King, Bob Dole, and Burt Reynolds. No matter how many times I watch his celebrity Jeopardy skits they crack me up every time. After SNL Norm started his own show simply called The Norm Show. Norm did work with former cast mates appearing in movies such as Deuce Bigalow, Grown Ups, and also was in Billy Madison during his SNL days. Among many voice works Norm was Lucky the dog in Dr Doolittle, Norm the Genie in Fairly Odd Parents, and Death on Family Guy. Norm was also a judge on The Last Comic Standing and had a hand in many works as a writer, producer, and actor. His deadpan style was something he owned and will never be duplicated. Norm is just one of those voices and talents that is easily distinguished but not easily duplicated. Sadly Norm lost a long battle with cancer that only became public Tuesday 9/14 upon his death. Norm has left the world today but his voice and talent will live on for many years to come. RIP Norm Macdonald you will truly be missed.

Norm was one of my favorite guys from what i call the golden age of SNL. Between him and Farley, and David Spade, Sandler and Dana Carvey, that was the best SNL lineup ever.

He will be missed.

Unusual, but clips of his appearances ended up in my YouTube feed about 3 weeks before he passed. I must have Googled a bit he did or something, but it was very hard to hear he had passed.

No one knew he had cancer except him and the doctor.

He had a saying attributed to him that said:

"I'm no doctor, but the way I figure it, you don't lose a battle with cancer. When you die, the cancer dies too. I'd call that a draw."

RIP Norm
