‘SNL’s Weekend Update Gives Norm Macdonald The Last Laugh
Tonight on Saturday Night Live, the Weekend Update anchors Colin Jost and Michael Che paid tribute to longtime cast member and Weekend Update anchor Norm Macdonald who died on September 14, following a private, nine-year battle with cancer, aged 61.

“It is a bittersweet night for us tonight,” said Jost. “Norm is the reason I ever wanted to do Weekend Update, and so tonight, we thought we’d turn the last few jokes of Update over to Norm.”

The broadcast then cut to several vintage clips of Macdonald at the Update desk, delivering some of his best one-liners.

“At the White House this week, President Clinton officially came out against same-sex marriages,” he said in one. “What’s more, the President said he is not too crazy about opposite-sex marriages, either.”

Another clip examined “a new airport planned for San Diego,” which was set to be constructed three miles out in the Pacific Ocean.
