he nailed that Reynold's persona.

I love he gives the answer "Scooby Doo", and Trebek says "that's incorrect".

and norm comes back with, in perfect Reynolds pentameter/pacing and inflection "..no no..that's right. use to pal around with a Scrappy Doo"

I used to LOVE watching he Super Dave skits on that old show "Bazzar" I think it was called; I just remember watching it as a young kid in the early days of cable; I think it was on Showtime.

RIP Norm and thanks for the laughs.
Hey, there's a dead hooker in this trunk!

The smartest comedians portray themselves as the dumbest; Norm MacDonald was the best at this sleight of hand. He graduated high school at 14, read Russian literature in his downtime, and had long philosophical discussions with clergy. Norm also gambled, repeatedly trading all his earthly wealth for a queen of diamonds or a Habs’ hat trick. The sleight of hand was best left on stage but he learned from the experience. MacDonald was a student of human nature first, comedy second.

Norm died Tuesday at 61 following a secret decade-long battle with cancer. A terrible description, since he thought it cruel to say someone “lost their battle” with the dread disease. “If you die, the cancer dies at the same time,” he said in one of his stand-up specials. “That’s not a loss, it’s a draw.”

The Sagat roast with video.

And then he wraps it all with an absolutely AMAZING comeback to Jim Norton's commentary on his bit.https://t.co/OjEOpiczdw

Iíve heard stories that the scene in Dirty Work where Don Rickles plays the movie theater manager that roasts Norm and Artie took over a dozen takes because everyone couldnít stop from laughing.

That would make sense since it took me about that many times watching it to make it past that scene with out having to pause due to laughing so hard!
