Death of Norm Macdonald

On September 14, the Canadian comedian passed away at the age of 61. He had received a cancer diagnosis nine years before. Sadly, he succumbed to his nine-year battle on Tuesday and breathed his last.

His management company, Brillstein Entertainment, informed Deadline of his passing. He was desperate to keep his health issues hidden, away from his family, friends, and fans, according to Lori Jo Hoekstra, a friend and longtime producing partner.

Added Hoekstra:

He never wanted the illness to change how the audience or any of his loved ones saw him. He was most proud of his comedy. Norm was only funny. He famously stated that a joke “should always catch someone off guard, never pander,” and he surely never did. Norm will be sorely missed.

Nobody could break you like Norm McDonald could. funny and original

Oh sh*t. I was a tremendous fan of Norm Macdonald, and when I first started acting, I basically copied his delivery. Specifically to see him on talk shows, I would stay up late. He was the most hilarious host ever. Today, we lost a legend of humor. one of the greatest of all time. RIP.
