Laughter is often said to be the best medicine and Doctor Norm Macdonald is handing out the cure.
The Canadian stand-up comedian delivered one of the first major stand-up routines about coronavirus. Entertainers continue to lighten the mood as Canada and other countries begin taking increasingly impactful measures to slow the spread of COVID-19.
“I wasn’t gonna talk about the coronavirus,” Macdonald began the routine before doing just that. “Well, there’s been, so far, 11 cases — 50! 200!”
“It’s funny how Big Pharma is so evil ‘til now,” the comedian added. “It’s like, what is it? $200 a pill? Yeah, that’s good, that’s fine… it’s funny that we all now know how we’re gonna die,” he observed. “It’s just a matter of what order at this point.”
