Norm Macdonald is best known for his roles on SNL or the film Dirty Work. When he died in September of last year, the well-known and much-loved comedian made one final stand-up special before he died, and it was kept a secret until now.
The critically acclaimedSaturday Night Liveactor-comedian known for his deadpan delivery was diagnosed with cancer in 2012, but kept his illness private. He was working on new material for aNetflixspecial when he had to go into the hospital in the summer of 2020.
Macdonald did nothing wrong with the medical treatment. Norm privately shot an unreleased one-hour stand-up special. He filmed the entire hour in a single take. He is fantastic, but the footage was literally tossed in a closet.
Macdonald became very sick a year later, before his special might be properly presented before an audience. Hoekstra shared, he ended up getting sicker in August and September, and he remembered he had shot this and asked me to find it so he could see it, and Macdonald even suggested a characteristically self-deprecating title for the hour:Nothing Special.
Before he died, he ended up seeing it.
