Canadian comedian Norm Macdonald has passed away at the age of 61 after a long battle with cancer.

Absolutely devastating and no one saw it coming. Norm kept his cancer diagnosis a secret and dealt with it privately for nine years.

The Quebec City native was was best known for his time as a cast member on  “Saturday Night Live”. After leaving SNL in 1998, Macdonald created "The Norm Show" that ran from 1999 to 2001. He starred as a hockey player who was banned from the NHL for gambling and tax evasion, and was forced into community service as a social worker.


Aside from his many talents, Norm was also an avid sports fan. Following the news, tons of people took to twitter to remember his best sports moments.


One of the funniest to ever do it! He will be truly missed.

Rest in peace, Norm.
