Norm Macdonald honored by late night hosts: 'God, we're gonna miss him'
Late night presenters paid homage to Norm Macdonald Tuesday after the comedian died earlier in the day after secretly living from cancer for nine years. Jimmy Fallon had to hold his emotions back the first time he spoke about it, but remembered the first time he met Macdonald shortly after he was hired on Saturday Night Live. Stephen Colbert said Macdonald helped him out as a guest writer on SNL for a short time, during which Colbert spent all of the time writing for the Weekend Update that Mcdonald used as a presenter, and Colbert had high praise.
“I wish I were a good comedian to joke about Norm Macdonald's death now. But the only comedian I know who could get away with a 'Norm Macdonald is Dead Joke' is Norm Macdonald, ”said Colbert. "And I'll miss the fact that there is no one on the planet who can do it, and the comedy world is poorer for it now."
Seth Meyers, who once also ran the Weekend Update desk, said Macdonald told his all-time favorite joke in the segment.
"It's a perfect norm joke," Meyers said before telling it with a Macdonald-like cadence. “The richest girl in the world, billionaire Athina Onassis, celebrated her 10th birthday this week. What is it like to be the richest girl in the world? Well, to give you an idea, there were two cakes at the party. "
