Norm Macdonald, a former ‘Saturday Night Live’ anchor and comedian, has died. He was 61 years old at the time. Mcdonald passed away after a nine-year battle with cancer. In November, Norm Macdonald was scheduled to perform at the New York Comedy Festival.
On Tuesday, September 14, the comedian’s management team at Brillstein Entertainment confirmed his death. Lori Jo Hoekstra, Norm Macdonald’s longtime producing partner and friend, who was with him when he died, said the actor had been battling cancer for nearly a decade. “He was very proud of his comedic abilities. He didn’t want his diagnosis to affect how the audience or his loved ones perceived him. Norm was a comic in every sense of the word. ‘A joke should always catch someone off guard; it should never pander,’ he once wrote. ‘He was never one to pander.’ “Norm will be sorely missed,” Hoekstra said. In recent months, we’ve seen many great stars pass away. To name a few, Paul Mooney, Art Metrano, Phil Jerrod, and Sean Lock. RELATED ARTICLES
