The late Chris Farley was one of the finest physical comedians to emerge from the cast of the long-running sketch comedy series Saturday Night Live; mixing shamelessly broad, anything-for-a-laugh mugging and pratfalls with a brilliant sense of comic timing and a grace that belied his huge frame, Farley's humor was at once bizarre, outrageous, and endearing.

Overview

The late Chris Farley was one of the finest physical comedians to emerge from the cast of the long-running sketch comedy series Saturday Night Live; mixing shamelessly broad, anything-for-a-laugh mugging and pratfalls with a brilliant sense of comic timing and a grace that belied his huge frame, Farley's humor was at once bizarre, outrageous, and endearing. Saturday Night Live: The Best Of Chris Farley compiles an hour of highlights from Farley's five seasons with SNL, including his audition as a member of the Chippendales dance troupe, his turn as motivational speaker Matt Foley (who often informs his charges they'll end up "livin' in a VAN, down by the RIVER!"), an episode of The Chris Farley Show (a talk show in which he interviews Paul McCartney with clueless clumsiness, stopping periodically to announce to the audience, "This is so AWESOME!"), and his appearance on the sports talk program "Bill Swerski's Super Fans." The video also features a brief tribute to Farley from fellow SNL star Tim Meadows.
