Comedian Norm Macdonald dies of cancer at 61

Recognized for his offbeat and absurdist humor, Macdonald spent a handful of years on “Saturday Night time Reside” within the mid-1990s. He anchored “Weekend Replace” for 3 seasons, choosing up a cult-ish following that lasted lengthy after his time at the display (which allegedly ended as a result of he angered NBC’s Don Ohlmeyer via persistently joking about Ohlmeyer’s pal O.J. Simpson). Chatting with The Submit 5 years in the past, SNL writer Lorne Michaels famous that Macdonald, who infrequently repeated jokes, made comedy appear easy — “which, in fact, is what a professional is meant to do,” Michaels added.
