Damn!! Way too young. I wondered why he has not had himself out there. RIP.

Too young. So many hilarious moments. All his times on Dennis Miller’s HBO show I think I still have on VHS somewhere. Heard his Fantastic Four bit the other day and was thinking he was just so unique.

This breaks my heart. I love Normy. He's been one of my favorite comedians for decades. Was lucky enough to see him perform 3 times over the last decade. This sucks hard. He was great. Can't believe I'll never be able to see him live again.

RIP, Norm. You're one the best to ever perform standup. A true comedian's comedian. :'(

Conan O'Brien had a really good episode on his podcast where he, Andy Richter, and Frank Smiley share their memories of Norm and try and explain what made his brand of comedy so unique.

Working from home today and I've got the Bob Dole funeral on in the background.

Couldn't help but remember Norm MacDonald's constant impersonations of him.
