In a brand-new video posted to his YouTube channel, Saget reflected on Macdonald’s living and fondly recollected their time together.

“Two weeks ago, he texted me ‘How are you? What “are you doin “? Are you doing stand-up? ‘ And I rebutted him with much too many names. And then I didn’t hear back. And then last week I got a text and it just said ‘I love you.’ And I didn’t say much back. I has been said: ‘I love you, Norm.’ And that was my last-place communication with him.”

Saget went on to address Macdonald’s unique- and sometimes dark- comedic vogue, saying: “He was a comedic genius. Anybody that didn’t get it, I’m sorry for you that you didn’t get it.” One reminiscence, in particular, stood out to Saget: that of his own roast on Comedy Central. Macdonald, who had been among those selected to roast Saget, opted to bomb with the live public on purpose by see jokes from a 1940 s joke notebook instead of roasting someone who was a close personal friend. “It was so anti-roast…He didn’t want to roast his friend, ” says Saget. Getting suffocated up, Saget also lends: “He attained me better. He constituted me better as a comedian, but most importantly, he was a genuine friend. Our friendship was really, very deep.”

Saget’s video is the most heartfelt and most moving tribute to Macdonald so far, because it clearly comes from someone who was a genuine friend to the man. Although he recognizes that Macdonald often went to see a neighbourhood of darkness as a comedian, the picture he covers of Macdonald is that of a brilliant and kind man, operating at a degree of comedy that was above almost everyone else. One of the most telling signalings of his genius is the respect he garnered from other jesters, as evidenced by the tributes they have recently shared admiring Macdonald’s brilliance.
