Ya know what they say - speak ill of the dead.
...I had to check to see if this is real. Holy shit....
yeah, clicked on the link expecting it to be some lame joke. It's pretty lame, all right....
Brutal. What a loss.
I didn’t even know he was sick
If this isn't the most upvoted comment, something's wrong.
Wish uh granted I guess
It was an unnecessary comment, I agree. I just want Norm to have a nice dirtnap.
Oh, it will be
Norm's doctor, 2010: So..you have cancer....do you want to announce this to your fans?
Norm: Nah, one day it will result in a great reddit comment... I'd keep my health problems prive.
Norm's doctor: Alright, fair enough.....now say "oink!"
You were expecting a joke? From his cardiologist?
More of a comment, really
He really needs better insurance
Norms cancer isn’t funny. It’s alarming
Let's let "I didn't even know he was sick" retire after this, no context can really top this. Rest easy old boy.
Why don't you tell to the folks at home who Norm Macdonald is?
For ten years, evidently.
I love Norm Macdonald so much. I don't really have a joke for this. More of a comment, really.
I really needed to read this
Came here to write this
I didn’t even know he was sick
For the uninitiated.
His death really rattled me, but this comment brought me right back.
Came here for this comment :(
Are you Serious?!
9/14 will forever be a national tragedy...international
This is so sad. Rip to a legend.
What the fuck????
Is this real?
We all need to watch norm videos tonight.
Just watched a few, I’m only 25 but I came across him on SNL reruns on vh1 and whatnot when my parents would watch and he always had a sense of humor that was perfect for me. Since then I’ve watched tons of clips and really learned to love him as a comedian, RIP.
I.....um.... wow, what the fuck
This one hits
I am sure he would've wanted us to make jokes but I can't think of any right now.
The fact he was hiding his DECADE OLD fight with cancer is just... massive respect.
I can't believe it :( I really hope he wrote that second book :( Just...wow :(
Enjoy your dirt nap, Norm <3
And here I was thinking he was too lazy to get off his couch and stop eating a sandwich for an hour to make a podcast ... the old chunk of coal was actually fighting cancer.

He set us up for one last 'I didn't even know he was sick!'
RIP, biggest inspiration to us all.
Praying for his friends and family.
Sir, that joke is for the worms.
The funniest person on earth died today.
The funniest person on earth died today.
Damn, RIP Sarah Silverman, I didn't know she was sick
Not even in the top 500
I mean, who's funnier than Sarah Silverman?
Other than dudes
Wrong! Amy Schumer is alive and well!
If you consider being very fat "well" that is. Well fed maybe.
Real classy to use the news of someone's death to shit on someone else entirely
Thanks probablyuntrue, like anyone gives a fuck what you think
Like anyone’ll fuckin’ listen to you
Yeah, that guy is a real jerk.
"I didn't think he was that funny" - Some NBC exec
Ahhh - one of those guys in suits that hangs out in the hallways.
My wife and I just hugged each other. Norm was a huge part of our lives. Devastating news.
Well that sucks.
(I figure Norm might put it this way)
Damn. This hurts - RIP King
I saw Norm two years ago perform live in NYC. He was a mess, but had glimmers of the man we knew from SNL. I always treasured the memory and it hits hard today
I don’t know what to do.
I'm so sad. Confused. How could this happen?
This guys is a great comedian, but the last thing he did was lose.
I guess he’s a loser.
well it’s not like the cancer lives on. really it’s more of a draw i think.
I’m really bummed about this
How did Artie outlast Norm? #dirtnap
Or so the Germans would have us believe…
No fuckin way!
They found his body buried in a shallow grave
APRIL FOOLS - Comedian/Entertainer/Podcaster Norm Macdonald is alive and well!
The fact that all the writers are saying he "fought a battle with cancer" is infuriating.
If anything, he tied his battle with cancer. Because when he died, the cancer also died.
RIP Norm. This sucks.
It's one of norms jokes
This was the point I was looking for. I’m sad.
Norm a real one... dying just so cancer doesn't win
The old Kamikaze-Cancer trick.
Fuck fuck fuck
Rest In Peace you really helped me a lot.
What the fuck
Wtf. Didn’t expect this. No Bueno. He was hilarious and a special gem in comedy. Sorry for his family’s loss.
Momma's Apple Pie, the Fourth of July. She was a Hooker!
The light isn't on this time.
I’m taking the rest of the day off work, this sucks so bad 😢
Gutted. Can’t even bring myself to do a norm line about it.
No fucking way
I am at a loss. This man kept me smiling. Now he’s gone. Fuck
My heart just sank... Norm was one of my all time favorites. I listened to him, talked about him, or referenced him on a weekly basis. Fuck cancer, man.
Thankfully he didn't die on September 11th. It would have reminded me of that tragedy.
ah here it is, the big laugh i needed.
The curse of Norm MacDonald Live!
Rest in peace to the greatest comedian to ever live. Thanks for all the laughs Norm.
Damn he battled cancer for 9 years... that's insane
Rest in peace.
I'm sad I've never see him live. I recommend his book.
I was lucky enough to see him live in 2012. He told a great joke about apples that had to have taken him 15 or 20 minutes to get to the punchline. I'll never forget it.
The world is a less funny place
I thank god that he will live on youtube. His channel is the greatest. RIP. baffled.
Just realized, all this time we assumed whenever he was out of it in public it's because he was on benzos, but he was probably fresh off of getting blasted with organ-shattering radiation :(
Fuck...I thought for this was going to be a joke.
12 days ago*
Let's hope the scientist he donates his body to is successful...
A Real Battleaxe
The best to do it
His comedy is his legacy. Rip to the one and only, Norm.
Norm helped me get through some pretty rough patches. What a guy. I hope he's at peace.
I can't even get myself to make a joke about this. This fucking sucks. RIP Norm
What a fucking blow man
How are they gonna close that casket?
this can’t be true
Well rewatching those Conan interviews will hit a bit different from now on
Oh no. Devastating news.
Its such a Norm Macdonald thing to not tell anyone he has cancer. Damn this is fucked
The only appropriate obituary is, “Norm Macdonald dies after losing battle with cancer.”
I have a million NML inside jokes I want to make but really just thinking about his son and family - RIP to the king.
Fuck me.. fuck
Easily my favorite SNL anchor. What a loss.
Thank God we still have seth Meyers!
I remember him being interviewed by Chris Hardwick. He talks about Richard Farnsworth, who acted in The Straight Story. He was full of cancer but told no one. When it got too far he shot himself, telling his family about his cancer through a suicide note. Norm says he admires courage like that, that’s how he’d like to go. Not pimp out his cancer on stage like Tig Notaro. During the discussion, at some point he goes «if i had a fatal disease, and i might, right, you wouldnt know.»

Can we get a timestamp please?
I'm fucking crushed man. Rip
Rest in peace. One of my favourite comedians of all time. His type of comedy was always impossible to steal, as it was more about his wonderfully unique delivery than the actual writing itself. I don't usually care when celebrities died, but I'd lie if I said this one didn't hit close to home.
Norm's last Letterman appearance is so great. RIP you funny man! Thanks for the laughs. F-OJ!!
I’m devastated, what a fucking blow, RIP 😢
Fuck this. His ESPY intro is still the gold standard in comedy. Everything he did was just…Norm. It was funny and original. One of the best and this news fucking blows
What type of cancer, you ask?
You guessed it:
I'm so happy I got to see him in Denver when he came through a couple years back. Norm was one of my favorite all time comedians. It sucks to be talking about him in the past tense. I hope he knew how much he was loved, imitated and admired. One of the all time greats. RIP, Sir.
WHAT THE FUCK!!!!!
RIP to the legend.
Fuck. Was supposed to see him live in 2018 but it got cancelled due to covid. I'm gutted.
You’re a diamond now, Norm ❤️💎
Wow, that blows.
Rest In Peace to the greatest comedian of all time.
Rest in power
I just grabbed a sandwich at work and threw on an "I'm not Norm" vid. Open Reddit while it played and see this!?? I'm not hungry anymore.
I mean, I’ll eat it, if you’re not gonna
I literally screamed out NOOOOO.
My favorite comedian.
Devastating. One of the absolute greats. Fucking sad, man.
This sucks. I’m sad.
Rest in peace to a legend
Reminds me of that tragedy…
What’s next for Norm Macdonald? But seriously this sucks.
The only solace I can find at this moment is at least he outlived fuckin Don Ohlmeyer
Goddamn this hurts. I'd had tickets to see Norm in San Jose in March 2020 but that got canceled due to the pandemic. I was still hoping I'd get to see him perform one day.
No no no no no no no no no no no
He really helped me in my darkest times. RIP a brilliant comedian.
This is fucking tragic. He’s literally one of my most favorite people ever
They say you never get over it. I know I won't.
The greatest. The greatest ever. 🙏
Note to self: this sucks.
Up in heaven on a cloud playin' the harp and watching all of his friends getting raped by the devil
RIP Legend. Thanks for all the laughs. Damn…
I read it on Twitter. And thought yeah that's cool. A pretty decent Norm joke there.
And then I scrolled down a little further and thought, hold on. That wasn't a tweet by Norm. It's not actually true is it?
It's about as true as saying that Andy Richter has an obsession with watching gay porn
He was my favourite
Damn. That's all I can muster.
Really wish we could've had a Celebrity Jeopardy with Norm on Will Ferrell's latest SNL hosting spot.
His talking about Richard Farnsworth quietly battling cancer as he filmed "The Straight Story" and during the ensuing awards season and how he admired his private suffering really takes on a new, so much more sad meaning here. I love Norm and his comedy as much as he seemed to love David Letterman. I have never been so sad over the death of someone I didn't know.
Worst news ever.
what the FUCK?? Can 2021 just stop???
First Trevor Moore, now him.
RIP greatest comedian.
Hope no one owns any stock in gambling
I think he is just preparing for a role in a movie. Because every movie needs a dead guy.
He did the whole of NML while suffering from cancer? This man was really a genius and I’m going to miss him a lot.
A national tragedy
Awful news. This also would seem to explain why he wasn't a guest during Conan's final run of shows on TBS.
He lost a courageous battle :(
So sad. Grateful to this man for the many, many laughs.
This joke comment from a year ago prophecied it: https://reddit.lurkmore.com/r/NormMacdonald/comments/d7lzbf/serious_is_norm_macdonald_sick/f139egd?utm_source=share&utm_medium=web2x&context=3
He lost his courageous battle.
RIP Norm, youre the biggest comedic influence ive ever had in life
Jesus fucking fuck
Maybe he'll be buried in a "shallow grave" in honor of my favorite Norm bit.
Normally don’t care about celebrity deaths but this one hurts
RIP to the old chunk of coal. Gone for a dirt nap.
I can't believe it. WTF!
Got me crying like a bitch 💔 truly the best of the best. No one could do it like him ❤️
I'm devastated. Just devastated.
I don't want to speak ill of the dead, but what a fuckin' whore.
RIP you fat fuck
Now September is always gonna make me think of tragedy
Is anyone from Norm MacDonald Live fuckin' alive?
I literally was just watching YouTube videos of him earlier today. Holyshit…
RIP, Norm. Loved your dry, acerbic wit. Also a hell of a storyteller.
You Dirty Dog!
If only he died on 9/11.
He probably woulda been feeling a lot better if he didn't have, you know... Terminal cancer.
Man I’m so bummed 🙁
So sad to hear this
Holy fuck. That sucks. RIP norm you funny mfer.
MY DAY IS RUINED.
The Curse of The Doors strikes again!
