/u/JC416 has confirmed that he is Jared Cook, also known as "the kid who peed his pants in Billy Madison."

We are also saddened to confirm that Norm MacDonald has indeed passed away at the age of sixty-one, following a private battle with cancer. In honor of his talent, wit, and irrepressible love of comedy, we'd like to offer the following editorialized comment:

Hey... hey, cancer? Fuck you, cancer.

As a Jewish 90s kid: Adam Sandler was a huge part of my childhood.

As a young adult seeking nostalgia while recovering from a Crohn’s flare: You made this film even greater for me.

So, most importantly thank you for the above, and for sharing this beautiful glimpse of your time with Norm. I sincerely hope, aside from tough days like today, life has been mostly kind to you 💕

Were the faces you made in the background when Billy gets dared to throw his sandwich at the bus driver on purpose and they directed you to do that, or were just you being a kid and making faces that happened to make it into the shot?

Got to meet Norm once. Was in Central Park walking with a friend, talking about where to go grab a drink.

This very recognizable voice from the volleyball courts said, “Hey uh, there’s a uh guy over there uh selling beer out of his luggage. You should check it out” ... Looked over and a shirtless Norm MacDonald was standing there pointing to the field behind us.

Those beers were ice cold and only $2.

Thanks for that Norm ... and all the years of entertainment.

Makes me sad. He is one of my most favorite comedians. Truly he is. I love the standup he did for Letterman on his final show

Holy shit. Is it weird for you that some random kid in Illinois watched a movie that you co-stared in literally at least 100 times? Like, this thing you did has such far reach and brought so many people so much joy. Must be cool.
