Bedgypooks : "now stay tuned for James Corden" Nope.

WarriorKing2233 : Man, think about it. 13 years old and watching David Letterman do stand up. Then growing up to become a stand up comedian and then debuting on the David Letterman show. Then, 20 years or so later you are the FINAL ACT on the FINAL David Letterman show. No wonder he was choked up.

JohnLoCicero : Why am I tearing up as if I have a stake in this?

MoeGreensLeftEye : One thing I've noticed about Norm is he likes to get up on a stage and tell jokes

Stuart Otis : "You'd think the war would take about 5 seconds, but no. It was actually close." That kills me

THEJIGGADREWSHOW : Norm is incredible ..Somewhere in between Gandhi and O.J. Simpson..

biscuitdave : Professional comics were all over Twitter saying this was the greatest set they'd ever seen.

John gatti : That was genuine as hell....straight from the heart.

Louis Hessey-Antell : This video has the worst ending I've ever witnessed; "stay tuned for James Corden".

Jake Marsing : For my money, this is the best standup set ever performed on broadcast TV.

Mark Marsh : Norm's been mocked for getting emotional in this appearance but SO F**KING WHAT? ... a guy can't tell a friend that he loves him?

MrRictusGrin : Wow. Watching Norm get choked up was really touching.

bbookzable : "who did they go to the war with?" .... THE WOOOORLD!!" "anya figure that'll take about 5 seconds for the world to win but actually it was kinda close......" Just amazing delivery.... Norm is one of a kind.

WickedSharp 001 : I cried from the moment Norman cracked. sincerity... something you don't see everyday in hollywood

RatSausages : First he had me crying because I was laughing then he had me crying because he was crying

shredBucketheadshred : This Norm MacDonald......he Told offensive Jokes,we swore, he gambled, This guy made fun of serial killers that ATE CHILDREN...I mean this guy was a real.................Legend

Chris J : Norm is one underappreciated Hollywood talent. I get that his humor may not be for everyone, But personally I think he is one of the quickest and most brilliant minds in comedy who doesn't get nearly the respect he deserves. Just my opinion. Take care and peace. The Identification bit damn near had me in tears. I know he can be hit or miss at times, but Damn, when Norm is good he is really outstanding.

Dennis Mackey : " I dont know if you guys are History buffs or not...." Classic Norm subtelty.........He is a master at His craft!

Craig L : When I feel life sucks and I need to detox, I watch this clip. Seeing Norm offer himself to Dave with no pretense makes me cry like a stupid baby.

John Thorne : Talent hits a target no-one else can hit. Genius hits a target no-one else can see. Norm McDonald: genius.

Connorgc28 : May go down in history as one of the purest and greatest stand-up comedians of all time.

Frankincensed : This is one of my favorite TV moments. Norm is so funny and I've NEVER seen him get emotional and then Dave's response. This is real TV. But Norm wasn't the only one who got emotional their last appearance. Goes to show just how important Letterman was to many people. Good stuff.

Guido Flichman : well that caught me off guard for a second I thought he was just joking around... such a sweet guy, if you look at how his expression and his posture changes, it really does seem like turned into that 13 year old Norm for a moment

K G : Norm McDonald is the greatest man ever.

Thumping Thromnambular : Stuff that makes you think the world's only half bad.

BAppleJuice : His intro/outro music was Bob Dylan's "You're Gonna Make Me Lonesome When You Go"

Doryphoros : Norm is the definition of a classy man.

Greg Castetter : I think I cried the hardest at the end when I heard "Now stay tuned for James Corden"

mercytoday : That was the sweetest man. Just when you think you cannot like Norm anymore you see this clip.

timwins31 : Anyone who is a fan of Norm will understand the insane magnitude of this clip. Norm really isn't a sentimental guy. He's extremely stoic. Seeing that much emotion from him, even when he was clearly trying to control it, speaks volumes to how important Dave really was to him. It was so goddamn beautiful. I've been a Norm fan for a very long time, I've seen far more of his material than most. I honestly think this is Norms greatest moment. This was Norm the man, not Norm the character or the comedian. You could even hear in Dave's voice how amazed and touched he was. Such an excellent moment. I'm glad these two got to share that and that we got to tag along. I guarantee it was one of those moments that no one who was part of it will ever forget.

gardenvarietypenis : Best SNL Newsman ever.

GearsDemon : That germany shit was hilarious.

Offret9719 : I came here to laugh, not to feel.

Richiedabull1 : The greatest 8 min set ever.....Norm Macdonald is the funniest man alive....first you cry from laughter then you Shed a tear for real.....the great man.....the only Norm Macdonald

Johnny Elkazar : Norm Macdonald is a great comedian and, somehow, an even greater person.

WhyYou : Norm would have been a better choice over Stephen.

BansheeMilk : One of the most sincere moments in television history.

Charles F. : Now I feel bad wasting all those years watching Jay Leeno.

6laderunner : Norm is an unheralded genius.

Dezrt : 7:25 "and I...loved standup" makes me wanna cry, so much raw emotion here

Daniel McIsaac : Wow. Even now, that's some of Norm's best stuff! Great comedian. And you know what, I love you, David Letterman. I. Love. You.

Nelekets : I don't think people realize how much David Letterman meant to Norm's career. David Letterman gave him a platform early in his career, and later when his career was in trouble(after the SNL fiasco), Letterman backed him and supported him and helped him pull through. Norm had every right to get choked up and show his gratitude.

Jeffrey Wendt : Somebody gotta feed them hogs!

Tuesday Money : Damnit. I cried. How unbelievably sweet.

bikerscout2012 : The greatest comic ever paying respect to the greatest late night talk show host ever. This clip is an absolute gem!
