Norm MacDonald Death – Cause Of Death, Obituary – Norman Gene Macdonald, a Canadian stand-up comedian, writer, and actor known for his deadpan style has passed away in Los Angeles September 14, 2021 due to cancer which he has been battling for nine years.

The 61-year-old Comedian was a beloved on the “Weekend Update” anchor on Saturday Night Live cast member in the 1990s.

Reports further unraveled, ”Comedian Norm Macdonald died Tuesday after privately fighting cancer for nine years, a representative confirmed to The Washington Post. He was 61. Among Macdonald’s greatest achievements were the handful of years he spent on “Saturday Night Live” in the mid-1990s, during which he anchored “Weekend Update” for three seasons. Speaking to The Post five years ago, SNL creator Lorne Michaels noted that Macdonald, who rarely repeated jokes, made comedy seem effortless — “which, of course, is what a pro is supposed to do,” Michaels added.

“He was most proud of his comedy. He never wanted the diagnosis to affect the way the audience or any of his loved ones saw him,” Hoekstra said. “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.”
Born in Quebec City, Quebec, Canada, he started in entertainment as a standup comedian who worked the Ottawa club circuit before branching out to clubs across Canada.
He quickly became known for his deadpan and sardonic delivery and in 1987 was given the opportunity to perform at the “Just For Laughs” Comedy Festival in Los Angeles.
That first taste of LA made an impression and Macdonald moved to the city, intent on breaking into Hollywood. He found work writing for the sitcom “Roseanne” in 1992….”

”I am absolutely devastated about Norm Macdonald. Norm had the most unique comedic voice I have ever encountered and he was so relentlessly and uncompromisingly funny. I will never laugh that hard again. I’m so sad for all of us today….”
