Holy ((bleep))! That sucks.

I've been watching Norm Macdonald Has a Show. Very entertaining.

He was a sharp wit and interesting dude.

(And yes, Deadline is very legit. Kinda the go to news site for entertainment news)

Devastating loss. One of the funniest people to have ever lived. May he rest in peace.

mother (bleep)

There are people who write good jokes, who are humorous, who can develop an act that you sometimes laugh at, and then there are dudes who are funny. Norm was hilarious.

RIP

Here is a bit that I have been watching almost weekly for the past year, makes me (bleep) myself laughing every time.

I was going down the youtube rabbit hole late one night and happened across his podcast. He was interviewing Tom Green and the first 13-15 minutes or so are hilarious. He had a quick joke about 13 minutes in about smoking and an "oral fixation". Freakin hilarious.

I was shocked when I saw that today. Adam Carolla has mentioned him several times in recent years....wanting to get him as a friend on the show, but would comment on how reclusive or just low profile Norm had chose to be in recent years. I guess we now know why. It is crazy he was able to keep it a secret for almost a decade.

If anyone wants to see an interesting side to Norm, watch the Jane Fonda episode of his talk show. He comes very close to quite literally charming the pants off of her.

Oddly, I wasn’t a huge fan of his standup routine (didn’t hate it either, it just wasn’t a wow thing for me), but absolutely loved him in interviews or other off the cuff moments. Very funny naturally and seemed to be a decent guy to be around too.

Another reason I suggest watching Norm Macdonald Has a Show. That aspect of him shines brightly.

I'm sure many in this thread have seen this clip, but I never get tired of seeing this. One of the best talk show appearances ever.
