Rumble Norm Macdonald, the deadpan stand-up comic and beloved “Saturday Night Live” star from 1993 to 1998, has died after a private nine-year battle with cancer. He was 61.

The former “Weekend Update” anchor’s passing was confirmed to The Post by his manager Marc Gurvitz, of Brillstein Entertainment.

The Quebec City native’s friend Lori Jo Hoekstra, who was with Macdonald when he died, said the performer fought cancer hard — but was determined to keep his struggle away from family, friends and fans.
