Norm Macdonald, Comedian and Former ‘SNL' Cast Member, Dies at 61

Norm Macdonald, an influential comedian known for anchoring the Weekend Update desk on "Saturday Night Live," has died.

The comedian’s longtime producing partner and friend Lori Jo Hoekstra, who was with him at the time of his death Tuesday, said Macdonald had been battling cancer for nearly a decade but was determined to keep his health struggles private, away from family, friends and fans.

“He was most proud of his comedy. He never wanted the diagnosis to affect the way the audience or any of his loved ones saw him. Norm was a pure comic. He once wrote that ‘a joke should catch someone by surprise, it should never pander.’ He certainly never pandered. Norm will be missed terribly.”

Macdonald started as a comedian in his native Canada, moving to the United States in the early 1990s and becoming a cast member on “Saturday Night Live.”

Macdonald was at his peak anchoring “Weekend Update,” where he had a habit of shocking viewers with his jokes, especially in regard to Michael Jackson’s private life and the O.J. Simpson trial.
Potentially, a government is the most dangerous threat to man's rights: it holds a legal monopoly on the use of physical force against legally disarmed victims.

I had no idea he was that old, I thought he was late 40's. I guess I never did the math.
I will miss his uncommonly based perspectives unapologetically rolled into the lap of whatever far-left wackaloon he's inoffensively bantering with.
But it will be like teaching a pig to sing, a waste of your time, and you'll only succeed in anoying the pig.
