That was 100% from Dennis Miller's HBO show. 24:48.....
Thank you a million times! I've been looking for this for years!
Whoever bet on the longshot of Artie outliving Norm is a millionaire today.
You just lost a buck.
A reference to the Canadian Screen Awards? Uh, I mean Candys?
Man, are those high-pitched squeals from the girls in the audience annoying!
I've been corrected twice so far (three times now). His birthday was listed as 1963 in a number of places (including Wikipedia) before his death. The actual date seems to be 1959.
I was trying to think of something to say. Your post means I didn't have to. You nailed it.
Rewatching the last appearance on Letterman, and from what I'm reading it sort of falls around the same place on the calendar where Norm may have been diagnosed.....one has to wonder how much his emotions with Dave were perhaps mixed with the cancer news.
I *always* watched Norm clips for some laughs......but now they def. take on a lot more meaning.
Two of my favorite comedians died too early.
Thank you, Norm Macdonald!
Truly one of the funniest. Norm Macdonald has a show on Netflix, episode 1 with David Spade. "Going to a break", having Spade tell an elaborately detailed story on being cat fished, then returning from "break" and asking him to retell it. I have watched those few minutes countless times, and I still laugh.
Norm in The Fairly OddParents:
In the clip of his March 2020 stand-up set (on pg. 2 of this thread) he says he's 68!
Well that sucks. I grew up in Ottawa and had a friend who tried to break into standup around the same time as Norm. As a result I caught Norm's act a few times during his very early years. Back then he was basically a Seinfeld clone (like just about everybody else) - observational humour and no swearing. It was very obvious that he was a step or three ahead of the rest of the pack. He came to town a few years ago and his performance was awesome. At one point he told staff to stop blinking the red light (that means your time is up) because he wasn't done yet and then gave us another half hour. Class act, funny, funny guy.
First RIP thread I have ever laughed at… just seeing some of the quotes and watching some of the clips. Couldn’t help myself.
Know what I mean?
Goodnight, funny man. RIP.
Tragic. Far too young.
I loved everything Norm did. Hilarious guy.
I'm gonna have to fill in the gaps of things I haven't already seen and listened to over the next couple of weeks.
Now I’m no doctor, but I’m pretty sure that if you die, the cancer also dies at the same time. So to me, that’s not a loss, that’s a draw.
If The Orville ever comes back, it won't quite as good without him... Bye Norm....
My all-time favorite comedian.
I always loved Norm’s work but after seeing the outpouring in the press (including a full page story in the local paper this morning) I didn’t realize he was quite so highly regarded.
I’m so glad he was appreciated

Norm and Conan. Comedy. Gold.
Apparently, according to Seth McFarlane, Norm finished his work on Season 3 before he passed.
