Fuck. RIP Norm. One of the best to ever do it. May I be the first to say his book is funny as fuck. Glad he got to see one more 9/11 before he went.

DIRT NAP!

Mad to think Norm only outlived Larry by 8 months.... this maybe puts all those questions about mortality into a bit of context though.

Really sad.

Fucking hell. Genuinely gutted. Was lucky enough to see him a few years ago, one of my best live show memories ever.

Shit, he was great. I've rewatched his deliberately crap roast of Bob Saget so many times.

Fucking hell, this is terrible news. I only finished his book recently and loved it to pieces, and really hoped he'd have many years left to write many others, and the world is a much lesser place without him being in it.

I'm devastated. He really was special. This is going to take a while to process.

Read his book if you haven't. It's fucking fantastic.

Got his book on my shelf still waiting to read, guess now is as good a time as any.

Here's a clip of Norm on Letterman, one of the few times he showed real emotion:

Yep. It's not actually a memoir, more of a comic novel.
