Seth Meyers Remembers ‘Weekend Update’ GOAT Norm Macdonald
Seth Meyers shed no tears for Norm Macdonald on Tuesday night, but not because he wasn’t devastated by the tragic news of his fellow “Weekend Update” anchor’s sudden passing at the age of 61 after a long and secret cancer fight.
As the Late Night host put it, Macdonald wouldn’t have wanted to hear anything “sentimental,” but Meyers did spend several minutes remembering some of the funniest things the late comedian ever said.
Among them was the first time Meyers met Macdonald backstage at Saturday Night Live in 2001, when Meyers was just a young cast member on the show. When someone asked Macdonald how his newfound fatherhood was going, he replied, “It’s going great. Still no abductions.”
