Storyline

Everybody remembers Chris Farley, the big loveably guy from Saturday Night Live.

Live in a van down by the river. one of the best snl skits on one of the best videos
10 April 2001 | by Quinoa1984See all my reviews

Outside of Eddie Murphy's best of tape with him as james brown, this tape with the big guy Farley is my favorite. I still think he was under-rated, even though he is thought as one of the most respected SNL guys yet to grace the stage. His Matt Foley impression will never NEVER get old and unfunny (even funnier is seeing Spade cover his mouth from laughing as Farley rants about rollin' doobies). And the other things, like Chippendales, Lunch Lady, and him in his own show will remain classic comedy moments of TV, let alone SNL. A+
