SNL Adam Sandler Chris Farley Song

Adam Sandler hosted Saturday Night Live this weekend, marking his first time back on the long-running NBC late-night sketch show since his 1995 firing by the network. A sore subject he addressed in his opening monologue during his song, “I Was Fired.”

The humorous tune, which contained a guest appearance by Chris Rock, also mentioned how his friend and co-star Chris Farley had been fired at the same time. To close the show, Sandler performed a more somber song in tribute to Farley, who died in 1997 of a drug overdose at age 33.

Watch the performances for both songs here below, along with other videos from the episode.

Chris Farley

I Am Chris Farley
Directed by Brent Hodge & Derik Murray
Spike TV
Air Date: Monday August 10th, 2015, 10pm

I watched Spike TV’s documentary I Am Chris Farley that premiered last night. I laughed so hard I was crying. Then I actually started crying. Chris Farley has been dead nearly 20-years, but the impact he had on people my age has been an incredibly lasting legacy. I was 8 when Farley and a young crop of would-be megastars joined the cast of Saturday Night Live. Along with Chris, there was Adam Sandler, David Spade, Chris Rock, Mike Myers, etc. My parents used to record SNL on VHS, and we’d watch as a family over breakfast Sunday mornings. It was a staple of my childhood. Folks older than I grew up with Murray, Aykroyd, Chase, and Radnor. My friends and I had Farley and the gang.

Chris Farley

Before ]Mike Myers ever voiced the titular Shrek for four very successful films and a few TV specials, the late Chris Farley was tapped to play the lovable green ogre. In fact, reports say that the comedian had actually recorded up to 95% of the voice work before his passing. With that in mind, one has to wonder what would have the film sounded like had DreamWorks animation just released it.

Now a newly released video is showing how widely different the one Farley voiced would have been had the animated studio just stuck with it as opposed to the one Myers voiced. Check it out below.

SNL 40 Melissa McCarthy Revives Chris Farley's Matt Foley Saturday Night Live

Tonight’s Saturday Night Live 40th Anniversary Special has seen a lot of reuniting of past and present cast members, musical guests, hosts, and more, as well as tributes to alumni who have passed on.

In one said tribute of the night, actress and three-time SNL host Melissa McCarthy revived the Matt Foley character, made popular by the late Chris Farley. McCarthy made an appearance during a Weekend Update segment hosted by Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, and Jane Curtin (all past Weekend Update hosts), coming out dressed in the motivational speaker’s classic duds — thick black glasses, plaid jacket, green necktie, and pants that constantly need adjusting.

Watch the video here below from the SNL 40 special of the entire Weekend Update segment, which includes the McCarthy as Matt Foley bit, as well as Emma Stone doing the late Gilda Radner’s Roseanne Roseannadanna character. Also embedded below is the original Chris Farley skit which featured Chris Spade and guest Christina Applegate.

Chris Farley As Matt Foley 3 Years Before ‘Saturday Night Live’ (Video)

Chris Farley as Matt Foley on SNL

If you were a fan of Saturday Night Live in the ’90s, you are no doubt familiar with Matt Foley, the motivational speaker character played by the late Chris Farley. Considered to be one of the all-time greatest SNL characters/sketches, it made its debut in 1993 and would make many appearances over the years after that.

But SNL is not where the character was born. No no, Farley was screaming about living in a van down by the river long before the character was first used on the big stage. Farley used to be a member of Chicago’s Second City sketch/improv comedy group, where he also played Matt Foley.

Below you can watch a video of Farley doing the Matt Foley character for Second City in 1990—three years before it was first used on SNL. The sketch is very similar to that first and best known version we saw on SNL, which also featured David Spade and Christina Applegate.

Rob Ford/Chris Farley Mashup

The more that Toronto mayor Rob Ford does, the bigger the spotlight on him grows. If you’ve followed his wild and wacky story at all, chances are that you or someone you know have thought to yourself once or twice or constantly that Chris Farley, were he still alive, could have given us some great Saturday Night Live skits impersonating Ford.

Now comes a YouTube mashup that proves that everyone who has thought this is 100% correct. The video alternates clips of Ford doing what he does and some of Farley’s work.

You can check it out below. NSFW warning is in effect.
