    First off, I'm catching this news right now in real time. Second, I don't want to go to battle over who's the biggest Norm fan, but I've been spreading the gospel for decades. This is the first HH "sells the couch" thread that's actually made me sad. I'm not exaggerating at all that Norm Macdonald is in my top-5 comedians of all time. Not only is he (fight me) the best late night talk show guest of all time (and it's not even close), but his stand-up is incredible. If you haven't watched Me Doing Stand-Up, watch it. Buy it, find it, pirate it, whatever. Fuck, if you can't find it, let me know, and I'll PM you a link.

    Best Weekend Update anchor, and it's not close. Movies were campy but way underrated. Low key amazing standup.

    This one hit hard.

    My top 3/5 too. Robin Williams, Norm, Uh, trails off quick after that. Brilliant, subversive, insightful and still a certain genuine humanity too.

    Yes I'm just finding out myself. Had no idea he was sick. His autobiography is laugh out loud good; I read it twice in fact.

    This is bumming me out. He was the greatest.

    Probably my favorite Norm bit. The Charles Woodson joke slayed the crowd, and Ken Griffey Jr.'s reaction is priceless

    You can add Dave Chappelle to that, but that's about it

    Dennis Miller.
    Chappelle & Carlin. Plus Cosby’s Himself. Big gap though.

    Forgot about Carlin... Agree on Miller if it's vintage Dennis Miller.

    Everyone always tells me that Lenny Bruce belongs on all-time comedian lists. I don't know much of his stuff, though. Totally different era of comedy.

    When I first met @GrundleStiltzkin he was under the Sultan River Bridge jerking off punks for $15 a man.

    I think people like to romanticize the idea of Lenny Bruce and not so much his comedy.

    The standup bit on Cosby/Rape/Hypocrisy starting about 5:53 is a must watch

    Lenny Bruce was an anti establishment comic who paid a price for it. So he gets credit for that

    I've never seen even a tape of his act.

    This was Dustin Hoffman's girlfriend in the movie
