Norm Macdonald has died at the age of 61. The 'Saturday Night Live' star passed away after battling cancer for more than a decade.
Jeff Danis, the president of DPN Talent and one of the comedian's representatives, said in a statement to Variety: "Norm was an original!
He defined American humour with honesty and blunt force. " The late star - who was known for his distinctive deadpan style - wrote for the sitcom 'Roseanne' earlier in his career, while he also made guest appearances on programmes like 'The Drew Carey Show'.
The stand-up comedian even starred in his own sitcom, 'The Norm Show', from 1999 to 2001. Lori Jo Hoekstra, his long-time friend and his producing partner, was with the actor when he passed away.Read more on msn.com
