Norm Macdonald Shot Secret Final Netflix Stand-Up Special Before Death – The Hollywood Reporter

Norm Macdonald shot secret Netflix special before dying: ‘The material’s fantastic’

Norm Macdonald shot a secret unreleased one-hour stand-up special before he died.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, that special is coming to Netflix later this month.

Macdonald, who died last September at the age of 61, was diagnosed with cancer in 2012 but kept his illness private. He was working on new material for a Netflix special when he had to go into the hospital in the summer of 2020.

“His test results were not good, so during the heart of COVID-19 pandemic and literally the night before going in for a procedure, he wanted to get this on tape just in case — as he put it — things went south,” Lori Jo Hoekstra, Macdonald’s longtime producing partner, told The Hollywood Reporter. “It was his intention to have a special to share if something happened.”
