WATCH: Seth Meyers Pays Tribute to Norm Macdonald: 'He Was the Gold Standard'

  • Seth Meyers paid tribute to the late, great Norm Macdonald last night with a moving reflection on the "Weekend Update" legend's legacy. Meyers admitted that Macdonald wouldn't "want to hear anything sentimental" from his fellow comics, but that didn't stop him from sharing a few of the funnies things he "was lucky enough to hear Norm say" over the years, from an off-the-cuff joke about his young son to his favorite "Weekend Update" joke of all time.

    "He was the gold standard, and he will continue to be the gold standard," concluded Meyers. "I would just suggest that everybody go watch him tell the moth story on Conan, go watch any number of Norm Macdonald things tonight because they are really, truly timeless."

    Rest in peace, Norm Macdonald. You will be missed.
