Saturday Night Live stars pay homage to Norm Macdonald after his death


Bob newhart: “It was an original. When I watched young comics in the first comedy TV shows, like Improvisation Where Catch a rising star, I was studying the style of each comic and thought, oh yeah, he’s doing Leno… or he’s doing Letterman… or he’s doing Rickles. When Norm arrived I said he wasn’t doing anybody… He’s one of the few people who can successfully write comedy material for me… which he did on Saturday Night Live. Norm’s passing is a terrible loss. “

David spade: “Last show I did with Norm. Don’t stop laughing with these 2 guys as you can imagine. I never thought that was the last time I saw him. The world of comedy took a huge hit today. “

Kevin nealon: “I was absolutely shocked and saddened to learn of the passing of Norm MacDonald this morning. He was, without a doubt, one of a kind. So smart, daring, cultured and smart as a whip. His comedy was brilliant and brilliant. sometimes biting we all loved it on SNL‘s Weekend Update and I don’t think he ever had the credit for coining the phrase “Fake News”. Norm and I often stood and sometimes played golf together. A few years ago we took a road trip to Palm Springs and he insisted on blasting Johnny Cash tunes the entire way with the windows down with his bare foot hanging down. Fortunately I was driving. Thank you for your unique brilliance and charm, Norm. I miss you already. # Ripnorm #ripnormmacdonald #snl #billymadison. ”
