Born in Quebec City, Quebec, MacDonald started his comedy career performing in comedy clubs across Canada where he quickly moved up the ranks. MacDonald eventually moved to Los Angeles, and became a writer for the popular Roseanne television series.

MacDonald joined the cast of NBC’s popular Saturday Night Live show in 1993, where he hosted the “Weekend Update” segment, and occasionally did impressions of Larry King, Burt Reynolds, David Letterman, Bob Dole and others. MacDonald parted ways with the show in 1998. Soon after, MacDonald starred in his first movie entitled Dirty Work, which was released to theaters in 1998. The film featured performances from veteran actors and comedians like Jack Warden, Don Rickles, Chevy Chase, Chris Farley, and Adam Sandler. Later that year, MacDonald would also lend his voice to one of the animals in the Eddie Murphy remake of Doctor Dolittle.

In 1999, MacDonald starred in a sitcom called The Norm Show, which lasted three seasons on the ABC. Also that year, MacDonald portrayed Michael Richards in the movie, _Man On The Moon _with Jim Carey which was the story of comedian Andy Kaufman’s short and unusual life.
