Celebs send love to Norm MacDonald

We all know we lost comedian Norm MacDonald yesterday, but it’s nice to read what people who knew him had to say to send off an old friend.

Celebrities and tv shows alike gave their thanks for his life.  Even Jeopardy reached out to thank him for the great job he did impersonating Jeopardy contestants on SNL.

No one enjoyed @nbcsnl’s Celebrity Jeopardy! more than Alex Trebek.

Everyone at Jeopardy! mourns the passing of Norm Macdonald, whose characters and humor always made us smile! Our hearts go out to his friends and family.

My dear friend Norm MacDonald passed after a brave 10 year battle. He was one of our most precious gems. An honest and courageous comedy genius. I love him.

Every one of us loved Norm. Some of the hardest laughs of my life with this man. Most fearless funny original guy we knew. An incredible dad. A great friend. A legend. Love u pal.

Today is a sad day. All of us here at SNL mourn the loss of Norm Macdonald, one of the most impactful comedic voices of his or any other generation.

One of the easiest things I’ve ever done was hire my bud #NormMacdonald to write the Roseanne show in 1992. Harder was letting him out of his contract in 1993 so he could take his dream job on SNL.Norm was fearless in comedy & life & his unique voice is missed by all of us today

In every important way, in the world of stand-up, Norm was the best. An opinion shared by me and all peers. Always up to something, never certain, until his matter-of-fact delivery leveled you.

I am absolutely devastated about Norm Macdonald. Norm had the most unique comedic voice I have ever encountered and he was so relentlessly and uncompromisingly funny. I will never laugh that hard again. I’m so sad for all of us today.

Norm was in a comedy genre of his own. No one like him on this planet. Please do yourself a favor and watch his stuff. He was one of a kind of all time

RIP my dazzling friend. God damn you were so funny. There was no one funnier than Norm, hardest I ever laughed was with him. I will miss you & your friendship #FuckCancer

“Norm @normmacdonald was a great talent, and I loved laughing with him on SNL. *Bob Dole* will miss Norm Macdonald.”

Norm, I didn’t just like you.

I loved you.

You didn’t just make me laugh.

You made me cry with laughter.

I’m still crying today.

But when I think of you,

my tears will run down my face with all the memories of all the laughter and all the joys that you brought to all of us.

NOOOOO GODDAMIT. Oh my God what is even happening.

Good bye, Norm. You were never not 100% hilarious.

No one could make you break like Norm Macdonald. Hilarious and unique. Fuck cancer.

— Jon Stewart (@jonstewart) September 14, 2021

To so many people in comedy, me included, there was nobody funnier than Norm MacDonald. You always hoped he would hang around after the work was done, just so you could hear his stories and get a laugh. So hilarious and so generous with his personality. I’m gonna miss him.

— Seth MacFarlane (@SethMacFarlane) September 14, 2021

One of the hardest times I’ve ever laughed was during the Bob Saget Roast as @normmacdonald ate it on purpose, gleefully digging in on a bit that the live audience wasn’t buying. Meanwhile, the other comics and myself were in tears and in awe of one of the funniest humans ever.
