to me The Hollywood ReporterMacDonald went to the hospital in 2020 and was told the results were not good. And before he even started an action, MacDonald proceeded to shoot a special. “He wanted to record this on tape just in case – as he put it – things went south,” longtime McDonald’s production partner Laurie Jo Hoekstra told THR.
“He intended to get a special to share if something happened.”
Norm MacDonald died after a nine-year battle with cancer, and has been kept private. “He never wanted his diagnosis to affect the way the public or any of his loved ones saw him,” Hoekstra said.
Macdonald has had a rich career in comedy that spans through a legendary transformation on Saturday Night Live as well as several beloved specials and an ABC sitcom.
