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.”
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.

Norm MacDonald on battles with cancer: “I’m pretty sure, I’m not a doctor, but I’m pretty sure if you die, the cancer dies at the same time. That’s not a loss. That’s a draw.”

Norm MacDonald was not only the funniest person of our age but also among the wisest. A longtime fan, I had the unexpected privilege of a lengthy, private correspondence with him—mostly about religion. The certain knowledge of his humility and profound faith are a great comfort!

Never forget this Norm Macdonald appearance on Conan in 1997 — with Courtney Thorne-Smith.

RIP Norm MacDonald who made me laugh harder than just about anyone ever.

Let me pause my meaningless online arguments to say Norm was one of the greatest comedians to have ever lived. One of the best moments of my career was when he found something I did funny. Very few comics will ever possess that level of mastery. RIP. https://t.co/VrsnVRCUZ9
