The world just lost the funniest man alive.

The events in our lives happen in a sequence in time, but in their significance to ourselves they find their own order; the continuous thread of revelation.

woah so sad. I remember watching SNL reruns with him many times when I was younger. Loved him in Billy Madison & other movies too. Such a unique comedian.

Damnit! I loved him! Funny as hell.

Gonna have to talk the wife into watching Dirty Work or Screwed this weekend.

You haven't lived until you've had a robot shart in your ear and followed along in the live setlist thread while it happens.

RIP, always been a fan, Dirty Work is a classic and one of Farley's last movies too.

If you haven't seen Hitler's Dog on Netflix go watch it, it's hilarious.

But, I don't think our fans do happily lap it up, I think they go online and talk about how it was a bad show.

He definitely was the funniest man alive.  RIP.  This is the bit that turned me onto him back in the days of Short Attention Span Theater on the Comedy Channel.

Shit, one of my favorites.  Dirty Work, the Moth joke, so much more.  I'm sure Norm would get a chuckle out of all the obits mentioning his Battle with Cancer.

One of the best without a doubt. Gone too soon.  :'(

The best thing about Norm is that he did whatever he wanted.... and was just so genuinely funny doing it. SNL wanted impressions and he'd be all, "this is me impersonating this guy"

He just seemed funny at his absolute core. Whatever his genuine first thought on a subject was... was hilarious. It felt effortless for him to be funny - funny was engrained into his being.

I will miss him immensely.
Bring in the dude!

If this is love, I'm never going home..

RIP Turd Ferguson!




I watched a few Norm SNL sketches last night. Truly one of the most deadpan funny people on the show.

I've been coming to where I am from the get go
Find that I can groove with the beat when I let go
So put your worries on hold
Get up and groove with the rhythm in your soul
