Conan: "Do something with that, you freak!" (to Norm)

Norms work on SNL and his film Dirty Work were huge impacts on me as a person which probably speaks poorly of us both. RIP Norm

He was the host of “Weekend Update” when I first started following SNL. So, he always held a special place to me, due solely to that. And then there was “Celebrity Jeopardy.” Some people may not realize that he actually was responsible for coming up with the first sketch idea, in addition to playing Burt Reynolds.

RIP to a legend!

This is the most gutted I’ve ever been by a celebrity death. Norm was one of my favorite comics, and he was an absolute legend. I don’t know what else to say, but I’ll link some of my favorite bits of his. I hope you enjoy them as much as I did.

The Moth Joke

Norm’s appearance on the final episode of Conan O’Brien’s Tonight Show

Norm’s appearance at the Roast of Bob Saget

What a loss.

EDIT: Can’t believe I forgot all the times he went after OJ Simpson on SNL, RIP.

Others bits that I’d forgotten to put above/not seen before:

Norm’s ESPN Awards speech

Norm as Burt Reynolds Turd Ferguson on Celebrity Jeopardy

Tex Hooper

Norm and Courtney Thorne-Smith on Late Night with Conan O’Brien

The 12-Minute Joke

Norm talking about Steve Irwin’s death on The Daily Show

I still remember having to warm up to his delivery style when he joined SNL. At first I thought he wasn't all that funny, but then realized his delivery was a huge part of his comedy. Great comic and very influential. (Also did the original voice of Death on Family Guy.)

I saw Norm & Bob trending on twitter and thought it was going to be something about Jim Bruer not doing shows that require Vaccination ID's and it turned out he had died.

Was not expecting that, He wasn't high up on my lists but he always had those good quips and one-liners and knew how to hit them just right.

The fact he knew about this for nine years and never dropped a beat during his comedy segments is impressive to say the least. I've been a fan of this guy for about that long and never would have guessed his private struggles. Norm was a showman through and through, and the show must go on. But it will never be quite the same.

I've told this before, but I think it's worth the repeat.

I saw Norm live a few times. One time he closed the show with this joke:

Norm: Anyone here have cats?

Crowd: Woooooo

Norm: Yeah. They're weird

And then he walked off the stage.

I know Norm's comedy. I was cracking up. What a weird way to close a show. I think there were people not familiar with Norm that were just stunned and had no idea what was going on.

Norm was great. He was weird and not for everyone, but I don't think any other comedian can close a set with that weird of a joke and still have some asshole on the internet telling the story again and again.
