Damn, he was young.. hid his cancer battle for 9 years (like Chadwick Boseman hid his)..
I remember his SNL days when he was on the news, cursed on air, and said "Welp, I'm getting fired" (or something along those lines)

He's on a short list of comedians that was never unfunny. If you put him in a room with the funniest people on earth, they would all tell you that he was the funniest person in the world.

Dang...that really sucks. I just started to really get into his comedy over the last 2 or 3 years, and he quickly became one of my favorite comedians. Sad to see him go frown

Sad day. Love Norm.

Norm MacDonald on battles with cancer: "I'm pretty sure, I'm not a doctor, but I'm pretty sure if you die, the cancer dies at the same time. That's not a loss. That's a draw."

I was just watching this video the other day:

https://www.youtube....

It has several clips of other comedians talking about how, basically, he was on a whole other level. A "comedian's comedian".

Norm was such a comedic genius. The way he told jokes was unmatched.

His delivery was astounding. During the Bob Saget roast, when describing Gilbert Gottfried:

"When you go to the mens room later you'll see a sign that says 'Gentlemen'. Pay no heed...go right in."

Typing it out doesn't do it justice.

Yeah, his perfect, dry delivery can never translate to typed words.

But I'll give it a go. From the same roast, reading from a blatantly "generic joke" index card: "Bob, you have a lot of well wishers here tonight, and a lot of them would like to throw you down one. A well. They want to murder you in a well. Seems a little harsh, but apparently they want to murder you in a well... it says here on this card."

That moth joke is fudging legend. Just including a billion monotonous human details to get to what would be the most obvious punch line one should expect from a joke about a moth.

gosh darnit I'm gonna miss this guy, I'll tell ya.

"There's no door that says scoundrel."

I just re-watched his portion of that roast the other day, love it. My favorite part is "...he has the grace of a swan, the wisdom of an owl, and the eye of an eagle, ladies and gentlemen this man is for the birds!"
