Los Angeles, CA — Comedian and actor Norm Macdonald has died from cancer at the age of 61… or so the Germans would have us believe.

Macdonald was born in Quebec, Canada and rose to fame on shows like The Drew Carey Show before becoming a cast member of Saturday Night Live in 1993… or so the Germans would have us believe.

There he hosted the Weekend Update segment and developed a voice for punchy, deadpan delivery and a disdain for that murderer O.J. Simpson… or so the Germans would have us believe.

After leaving SNL he accumulated many TV and movie credits, including Norm and Norm Macdonald Live… or so the Germans would have us believe.

Fans and famous comedians alike mourn the loss of this icon who was unapologetic in his pursuit of being funny… or so the Germans would have us believe.
