The Federalist has published an excellent obituary of comedian Norm MacDonald. It’s notable that he is being remembered across the libertarian and conservative spectrum (1,2,3,4,5). MacDonald wasn’t officially political in his comedy, but his barbs were often directed at left-wing and politically correct targets that most comics interested in keeping their jobs considered out of bounds. He was reportedly fired from his job at SNL for joking too much about O.J. Simpson, a forbidden topic at the time.
