RIP Norm Macdonald

#1 Post by bazodee » Tue Sep 14, 2021 1:20 pm

Comedian and “Saturday Night Live” alum Norm Macdonald has been reported dead at 61 after a private nine-year battle with cancer.

Deadline confirmed on Tuesday via Macdonald’s management firm Brillstein Entertainment that he had died.

The former “Weekend Update” host’s longtime producing partner and friend Lori Jo Hoekstra told the publication: “He was most proud of his comedy. He never wanted the diagnosis to affect the way the audience or any of his loved ones saw him. Norm was a pure comic. He once wrote that ‘a joke should catch someone by surprise, it should never pander.’ He certainly never pandered. Norm will be missed terribly.”

He was also entertaining as a celebrity contestant on the actual Millionaire show with Regis. Oddly, the other celebrities kept beating him on the Fastest Finger until he was alone in the Ring of Fire. At that point, they gave him this question:
Put the following letters in order to spell a popular man's name.
• A: N   • B: O
• C: R   • D: M
Norm got the last laugh when he won $500,000 for charity.

Yes, I remember that! He was a bit slow. Probably overmedicated.

Norm had to move to Seat 4 to get that FF right.

Norm was like that. Had you any familiarity with him, you'd know that.

Your last comment is totally ignorant, unsubstantiated and inappropriate here.

RIP, Norm. I loved watching your talk show appearances.
