One of my favorite comedians, dead from cancer at 61.

He was notoriously fired from SNL for insubordination (for telling jokes about OJ Simpson, who was a close friend of an NBC executive).

He could make the lamest joke ridiculously funny through his deadpan delivery. Here's the famous "moth" joke he told on Conan: https://youtu.be/jJN9mBRX3uo

Lots of material here for fans: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCJNky9LM9wx0cmWfrg5eUcw

I loved his jokes. He was my favorite SNL anchor.   Best Bob Dole impression they had as well.  Show was never the same after he left.

Such a bummer. I remember his relentless dragging on O.J. during "Weekend Update," and I was just talking about his movie "Dirty Work" to my brother a couple of weeks ago, saying that I need to revisit it, cuz it's been quite a while since I last saw it. R.I.P., sir.

It's been over a week and I'm still watching Norm clips. I really loved this guy.

Here he is as the last standup to appear on Letterman. Funny set with an ending that makes me tear up.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
