RIP Norm MacDonald

Post by rugles » Tue Sep 14, 2021 1:50 pm

Sadly, passed away after a 10 year battle with cancer.

Another one of those great Canadian comedians.

RIP Norm.

This clip of Norm on Conan O'Brien is fantastic. He roasts Carrot Top. Watch to the end.

i'm a big fan of Jim Breuer and he said Norm McDonald was the funniest person during his tenure of SNL. BOGUS !!

He had such a sharp wit. With that dead pan delivery. A hilarious man.

The best was in SNL Weekend Update the week OJ was acquitted and he started it off with "it's official - it's legal to commit murder in the state of California" - i laughed my ass off.

He kept his cancer a secret for 10 years.

Damn. Don't know why but seeing people pass from anything other than old age. Sucks..
Rest In Peace Norm
