Norm MacDonald dies from cancer aged 61.
https://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-58565272

He wasn't really very well known on this side of the Atlantic but happily there's a treasure trove of material available on youtube. Just a genuinely funny man.

There was a plane crash and this one kid somehow survived. What I want to know is why don't they make the planes out of that kid?

@lmur,
I loved that guy. He was so laid back as a standup, and always smiling (whereas Stephen Wright and Pat Paulsen were deadpan). He was just charming.

@farmerman,
Yes. Him, John Candy, Martin Short, Eugene Levy, Catherine O'Hara, etc etc etc. Those guys were all in the SCTV tv comedy show back in the day.

One of my favourite US tv comedies was Fernwood 2Night with Martin Mull and Fred Willard. There are some episodes on youtube. Very funny.

Norm McDonald was extremely popular among other comics.

@Mame,
I recall Howard Stern would book him and norm was funny, much more so than Gilbert Godfreid

@farmerman,
I've never found GG that funny, to be honest.

@Mame,
... and his (GG) voice! Like fingernails on a blackboard.

There are essentially two kinds of comics for me. One is funny in any situation. The other has a good delivery but is dead without a good script.

The other day I found a baby bird that had fallen out of its nest. I love animals and thought to myself 'I'm gonna help the little guy get back to its nest.' Now it took me about five or six throws...

This also deserves a high spot in the 'Bad Jokes' thread
