    RIP Norm MacDonald

    Nobody was funnier than Norm. I'll occasionally go downtime rabbit hole of You Tube and watch his old SNL OJ Simpson joke montage, or Turd Ferguson, or the compilation of appearances on talk shows, the "moth Joke" or his Friar's club roast where he purposely tells the worst jokes for 5 minutes straight. But these two, to me, are the best of Norm.

    Sad day. Thanks for reminding me of his Celebrity Jeopardy appearances. I'm cracking up as I'm typing thinking about it.

    Frankly, what made him great is he gave 0 f's and said it like it is.
    If life seems jolly rotten
    There's something you've forgotten
    And that's to laugh and smile and dance and sing

    Norm was unbelieveable and he did give zero F-s. Which actually cost him his Saturday Night Live gig because he wouldn’t stop railing on OJ Simpson, who was a friend of NBC exec Don Ohlmeyer.
    I’m not posting the whole thing here because it’s 35 minutes long, but all of his OJ jokes are on You Tube in one loop.
    Guy was incredibly funny and was one of the best trollers of all time.
    Two classic Norms:
    “When I got married I was incomplete. Now I’m finished”
    And
    “In OJ’s new book he says that he would stand in front of Nicole, defend her & take a bullet for her…Damn!! What bad luck that is when the same guy who would take a bullet for you is the guy who KILLS you!!!
    Savage. These trash “comedians” today could learn a lesson. #RIPNorm

    Let's not forget his greatest role - Pigeon on Mike Tyson Mysteries.

    I enjoyed the Norm on Larry King clip so much I can watch it a million times. Can’t believe I’ve never seen it til this week. King is clueless and Norm is brilliant.

    Finally, for me, there’s this classic:

    I had the good fortune of seeing Norm do stand up at Hollywood Casino in Columbus in late January 2020. Didn't know it at the time, but it would be the final live event I would see for a long time. Norm crushed it, as expected. The guy was a legend.

    This is one of my favorite Norm clips. He was a master at leading the listener down an expected path and then pulling a complete 180. No matter how many times I fell for it, he always had a way of getting me to fall for it again...

    Here is a second video of why I loved Norm. He loved toying with the audience. In the span of a 45 second clip, he sets a joke up... drops a punchline that intentionally turns the audience against him... he then quickly gets the audience back on his side... only to level them back again. Absolutely brilliant.



    Norm, thank you for all the laughs. You will be missed!
