MacDonald was remembered for his unique voice, in every sense, with his absurdist sense of humor and a deadpan delivery often leading to a wildly unexpected punchline.
Fans shared their favorite clips on Twitter in remembrance:
This was right after Conan found out that he was fired from The Tonight Show, supposedly Conan was distraught during the taping of this and according to sources was shaking. Norm’s appearance was a surprise to Conan which lightened the mood and gave him a well needed laugh. pic.twitter.com/cWY77eFLgU— ꧁꧂𝐖𝐚𝐡𝐝𝐚𝐝𝐝𝐢𝐧 𝐓𝐫𝐨𝐭𝐩𝐨𝐬𝐭𝐢𝐧’࿆۞ (@Reach4ACopsGun) September 14, 2021
I will never forget this great moment of inappropriate humor when Norm was talking about Steve Irwin‘s death with John Stewart while promoting his comedy album “Ridiculous”. Which I went out and bought the next day. I highly recommend it. #NormMacdonald pic.twitter.com/NOsgALEoMS— JAMES STILES (@ADORKABLE82) September 15, 2021
