What a legend. Like many I have spent hours upon hours watching/re-watching his content over the years. A true talent and humble soul. I don't know how to embed but his appearance on the final Letterman was amazing television. The emotion and gratitude he showed to Letterman was touching.

What's really amazing about Norm is how revered he is amongst his peers. You'll be hard pressed to find any comic who doesn't idolize or respect Norm.

A recurring theme in the tributes is how hard Norm could make people laugh. I agree with that completely. No one else caused me to laugh to the point of physical pain like Norm

Saw him live at Blackfoot. Thank you Sports Junky! I still owe you one.

His best work was always as a talk show guest - on Letterman, Conan, Dennis Miller, David Spade.

I didn't see it posted, but the middle stanza (?) refers to this clip

Also, the final joke about his wife at the end is so good.

Boy, does Seth ever have Norm Pegged. It's not too long, so watch this.

"It's going great, still no abductions" Amazing. That was just him in everyday life.

I could watch the same bit or an interview of his over and over and over again, and they were always so hilarious. Just like Robin Williams, I regularly search for his videos on Youtube (Especially with Conan) just to make myself feel better

Video of the Saget roast isn't on Youtube but Comedy Central put it on Twitter with "additional footage".

The most benevolent roast of all time. Truly exceptional.

10 years? That's brutal, and he kept it private too.

About 4 or 5 years after he would have been diagnosed if the 9-10 year timeline is accurate.

My favorite Norm joke ever @ 1:02:10

2007 on the Tom Green Web TV Show. It may be, to this day, the funniest thing I've heard.

Kinda nice seeing all these posts here, being a Norm fan it somehow felt like you were alone, always felt like he deserved far more success but respect from peers is more valuable.

Rewatching his clips last night had me laughing out loud, damn he was good. His tone of voice, inflection and timing were incredible.
