Norm Macdonald, the deadpan standup comic and beloved “Saturday Night Live” star from 1993 to 1998, has died after a private nine-year battle with cancer. He was 61.

The one-time Weekend Update anchor’s passing was confirmed to Deadline by his management team at Brillstein Entertainment.

The article goes on to state the following:

The Quebec City native’s friend Lori Jo Hoekstra, who was with Macdonald when died, said the performer had been fighting caner for nearly a decade but was determined to keep his struggle away from family, friends and fans.

Hoekstra, Macdonald’s longtime producing partner, said. “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.”

The tributes are pouring in for Macdonald on social media.

Conservative podcaster Steven Crowder tweeted, “I’ve never cried over the death of a “celebrity.” Norm Macdonald has changed that. He was one of the greatest influences of my professional life and one of the last true guards of comedy. My sorrow is surpassed only by my gratitude for the mark he left on the world.”
