RIP Norm mcdonald
« on: September 14, 2021, 10:51:19 PM »
He was the absolute greatest weekend update host SNL ever had, and it was never truly good till he joined the cast.

He died today of cancer at the age of 61.


Norm was such a funny man who didn't pull any punches, and he wouldn't let the heavily biased producers silence him.
In the name of comedy he continued to make jokes they told him not to make, but he knew that you can't pull any punches if you want to be truly funny.

He will be missed by fans of comedy everywhere.

And by—you guessed it—Frank Stallone.

I watched McDonald a lot 25 years ago when I first arrived on this side of the pond.  Thought he was funny.  Have not seen him recently.  Shocked to hear he is gone.

Probably the funniest Comedian I could think of. I loved when he and Dennis Miller were on that show bit together (the older Miller show) and talking about San Francisco and jokes there. So funny

If I'm not mistaken he was actually a genius too, not just a comedy genius either.

Anyone ever see Dirty Jobs? Funny movie. The cop prank was the best. Watched it last night again.

Norm McDonald and Artie Lang right ?

Hilarious movie, I love the thing at the car dealership with the " workin' girls ".


Norm was also hilarious on the animal.

It turns out he was battling cancer for the past 9-10 years, and he never told anyone not even his family.

Glad Norm MacDonald was recognized here.  I was shocked hearing about him passing away but that is what Norm would have done, kept it hidden and do the same fearless comedy he was known for.  There is or will be nobody like Norm, probably the funniest guy I have ever scene.  Norm did not get much mainstream exposure so many may not know him too well but luckily there is youtube and other video sites that have most of his appearances, you really should check out his Letterman, Conan, The View, Howard Stern appearances, you should also check out his Podcast clips which was one of the funniest podcasts/shows I have seen.  Norm was never afraid of offending, bombing, and shocking, that is when he was the best and something missing from many of today's comedians.

RIP Norm MacDonald

The movie was called "Dirty Work" and it is under rated, I am going to watch it tonight, been watching many of Norms appearances, trying to find new ones, that is one thing taking up a lot of space on my hard drive, Norms shows and appearances.
