Norm Macdonald, Comedian and ‘Saturday Night Live’ Star, Dies at 61

By Jordan Moreau

Norm Macdonald, the deadpan comedian, actor, writer and “Saturday Night Live” star, has died after a private battle with cancer, Variety has confirmed. He was 61.

Macdonald’s cancer diagnosis was kept secret from the public, but he battled it for nine years.

The Canadian comedian got his start in showbiz as a writer on “Roseanne” in 1992. He joined the cast of “Saturday Night Live” in 1993, and the next year he began his memorable stint as Weekend Update anchor until early 1998, when he was replaced by Colin Quinn. Macdonald was known for his impressions of Burt Reynolds, David Letterman, Larry King, Quentin Tarantino and many more.

More to come.

Yeah I just peeped this sh*t on Hollywood reporter crazy


Norm Macdonald, whose laconic delivery of sharp and incisive observations made him one of*Saturday Night Live‘s most influential and beloved cast members, died today after a nine-year private battle with cancer. He was 61.

Macdonald’s death was announced to Deadline by his management firm Brillstein Entertainment. The comedian’s longtime producing partner and friend Lori Jo Hoekstra, who was with him when died, said Macdonald had been battling cancer for nearly a decade but was determined to keep his health struggles private, away from family, friends and fans.

“He was most proud of his comedy,” Hoekstra 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.”

Macdonald was scheduled to be in the New York Comedy Festival lineup in November.

Macdonald was an*SNL*cast member from 1993-98, making his greatest impact as the anchor of the show’s “Weekend Update” segments for three seasons. Remembered both for his droll style — and for his refusal to go easy on O.J. Simpson despite reported pressure from NBC execs — Macdonald would prove one of the most impactful “Update” anchors, pivoting away from the slapstick approach of Chevy Chase and toward the more barbed political approach of his successor Colin Quinn.

Born on October 17, 1959, in Quebec City, Macdonald started his show business career in the comedy clubs of Canada, developing the deadpan style that would become both his trademark and a highly influential touchstone for a generation of comics. A contestant on*Star Search*in 1990, he landed his first regular TV writing gig on*The Dennis Miller Show,*fronted by the man who anchored “Weekend Update” from 1986-91.

Macdonald was hired to write for Roseanne Barr’s sitcom*Roseanne*for the 1992-93 season before landing the coveted gig at NBC’s*Saturday Night Live.

Among his most popular*SNL*bits was a gun-chomping impression of Burt Reynolds, complete with charming smile, bolo tie and attendant attitude.

Macdonald’s departure from the show was controversial in itself, and he often attributed his firing to his continued lambasting of Simpson as a murderer despite what he said was the displeasure of Don Ohlmeyer, president of NBC’s West Coast division, who Macdonald said was a friend of the former football great.

After leaving*SNL*in 1998, Macdonald starred in his own comedy series,*The Norm Show, from 1999-2001. He also did a one-season talk show for Netflix,*Norm Macdonald Has a Show,*in 2018. He also earned a CableACE Award nomination as part of the writing team for the 1992 variety special*Free to Laugh: A Comedy and Music Special for Amnesty International.*

Over the years he made numerous appearances on various late-night shows, including*Late Night With David Letterman*and*Conan, and had a recurring role on*The Middle.

He also released three stand-up comedy albums:*Ridiculous*(1996),*Me Doing Standup*(2011) and*Hitler’s Dog, Gossip & Trickery*(2017), the latter taken from a Netflix special.

Yea man.

So many long sh*tty days I could put on some old Norm clips on YouTube and it just turned the day around. I'd be cracking up at how much of a hilarious fool he was. Fool in a good sense.
