    We saw him at a comedy club in Phoenix a couple of years ago. I'm surprised to hear he was only 61 -- he looked older when we saw him. Maybe that was because of his health issues.

    yup, well he obviously put on a ton of weight over the last few years. he always tried to eat cr@ppy food on his programs, kind of making fun of how fat he's gotten. now that I think about it, he probably did that on purpose to hide the fact that he was sick and make people think he got fat from eating cr@ppy food. sounds exactly like something he would do.

    "When I went to the doctor, instead of having me say 'ah' he said 'open up and oink.' Because I'm a fat ****ing pig. He told me oink. Because I'm fat."

    I loved how he would tell horribly stupid jokes and then explain why they were funny.

    Cause of death.. Frank Stalone.

    Norm is one of my favorites, his Andy Richter the swedish german joke on conan is great. He was one of those comedians that just commits to a bit and somehow kills it. Bombing on the roast of bob sagat intentionally, all his Conan appearances, the weekend update stuff, his who wants to be a millionaire appearance all fantastic.

    Dude he was the most unique and funny comic.
    Really sad to hear this.

    IMO, his most underrated work is this movie here. I wore the VHS tape out:

    Apparently had cancer for 9 years and didn’t tel anyone. my favorite Norm McDonald moment came when he was on Comedians in Cars getting Coffee talking to Jerry Seinfeld about a bill Cosby and rape. I lose it everytime I watch it

    First time I've been genuinely bummed at a celebrity death. :/

    I saw a comment float across Twitter somewhere:

    “The only good thing about this day is I know I will spend the rest of the night watching Norm Macdonald clips and laughing hysterically.”

    The Conan clip with Courtney Thorne-Smith is absolute gold. This one really bummed me out as well.
