30 Chris Farley Quotes From The Hilarious SNL Comedian

Christopher Crosby Farley was a comedian and actor who was born on 15 February 1964 and died on December 18, 1997.

He appeared on 'Saturday Night Live' (SNL) shows and has acted in many films like 'Coneheads' and 'Tommy Boy' among others.  The roles he played were mostly as a sidekick who acted as a comic relief character in the movie.

He was passionate about making people laugh since childhood and chose to pursue his passion as a comedian post his education and degree in the theatre background. He greatly admired John Belushi's work and career. He got in touch with a member of the SNL channel and his style of work was instantly welcomed by the crew. This paved his way to host 'The Chris Farley Show' and he also played the role of Matt Foley in a sketch comedy program. The show gained instant popularity and this was the highest point of his career and fame. On the show, he interviewed various celebrities and famous personalities.

Although he experiences a tragic end, he is still remembered for his impact he created through his comedic nature and character, sense of humor, skills in acting, and talent. He gained recognition at The Hollywood walk of fame and was awarded a star. David Spade who acted with him in the film 'Tommy Boy' was his best friend, confidante, and greatest supporter. Years later various references were made about him in different songs and other media as well.
