According to Deadline, news of his death came from his management firm, Brillstein Entertainment.

Macdonald, who came to prominence following his time at Saturday Night Live, chose to keep his health issues private from his family, friends, and fans.

"He was most proud of his comedy," said friend and comedian Lori Jo Hoekstra. "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."

That was certainly sad news to hear & came out of left field. We are losing a lot of good ones this year.

It's like saying, "What's your favorite Stones song?" it's impossible to choose, but one of the funniest Norm clips is him and Spade on Dennis Miller's show, talking about Viagra, and Ohlmeyer.

As fearless a comedian as we will ever see, especially when compared to the lightweights of current times who bow in fealty to the cancel culture overlords who command them to either get in line with group-think or be destroyed.

One of the best ever.

I love the "I'm Not Norm" YouTube channel.

RIP

I am 47 years old, don’t even know the last time I dressed up for Halloween, just not my thing. Wife wanted to go to a Halloween party last year with a bunch of friends she grew up with and asked for a special favor and dress up just this once!

I went as Turd Ferguson and with a little help from her, I nailed it…...

Kinda like Norm nailed all his jokes and skits
