    Default I Am Chris Farley

    I Am Chris Farley

    Chris Farley lived his life full speed and committed to make everyone around him laugh out loud, and I Am Chris Farley will tell his hilarious, touching and wildly entertaining story for the first time ever - from his early days in Madison, Wisconsin, and at Marquette University, through his work at the legendary Second City to his rapid rise to the top of the comedy world on “Saturday Night Live” and in hit films like Tommy Boy and Black Sheep.

    The film showcases the performer’s most memorable characters and skits from television and film, paired with iconic photographs, home movies and family snapshots, to fully round out the story of this comedy legend – a bear of a man who nevertheless had remarkable grace and physicality. Clips from Farley’s most memorable performances fill the documentary, from his breathtaking Chippendales audition alongside Patrick Swayze, to his comically ill-fated salesman in Tommy Boy, to his diatribes as Matt Foley, the motivational speaker who “lives in a van down by the river!”

    Sharing insights into the beloved funnyman are such co-stars and colleagues as Christina Applegate, Tom Arnold, Dan Aykroyd, Bo Derek, Pat Finn, Jon Lovitz, Lorne Michaels, Jay Mohr, Bob Odenkirk, Bob Saget, Adam Sandler, Will Sasso, Molly Shannon, David Spade, Brian Stack and Fred Wolf, and family members including his brother Kevin, a comedian and actor, and his brothers Tom Jr. and Johnny, with sister Barbara.

    Directed by Brent Hodge (A Brony Tale) and Derik Murray (I Am Evel Knievel, I Am Steve McQueen, I Am Bruce Lee), produced by Derik Murray and executive produced by Paul Gertz (I Am Evel Knievel, I Am Steve McQueen, I Am Bruce Lee), Kent Wingerak (I Am Evel Knievel, I Am Steve McQueen, I Am Bruce Lee) and Robert Pirooz (I Am Evel Knievel, I Am Steve McQueen).

    This guy was nuts, I miss him. When he played roles where he acted like a baby, it was like watching a live Peter Griffin from Family Guy...total lunacy.

    Yeah I really miss this guy too. Just burned out way too fast.

    Even when the skit or movie wasn't really funny, just his presence on the screen made me laugh. He was a natural talent.

    I really liked him and thought he was hysterical. Even all the bad movies he did, he was just naturally funny.

    Even today when I see the Matt Foley skit with David Spade and Christina Applegate I still laugh so hard I cry. Chris Farley is so fucking funny in that.

    Even though Chris was from Madison Wisc., I considered him a Chicago boy. Every time I see something on Chris I feel like laughing and crying at the same time. 33 years old is way too soon to go.

    Watching this almost makes me want to cry. It's so sad how he went out.

    such a terrible waste of talent. he was so funny and for me there was such a sense that he not only was he funny, and weirdly charming, but that he was also probably a wonderful person too....and despite his excesses there was a kind of innocence. I certainly never got that feeling from Belushi, and I think it makes Farley's death even sadder, that if the right people could have gotten to him at the right time, it would have all turned out differently. He would have been a Tom Arnold recovery story, instead of a Belushi death story
