Christopher Crosby "Chris" Farley (February 15, 1964 – December 18, 1997) was an American comedian and actor. Farley had a loud, energetic comedy style, and was a member of Chicago's Second City Theatre and cast member of the NBC sketch comedy show Saturday Night Live between 1990 and 1995. Farley and Chris Rock were introduced as two of the show's new cast members in early 1990.Similar to his idol, John Belushi, Farley died of a speedball overdose at the age of 33.
Farley was the original choice to voice the title character of the DreamWorks animated film Shrek, but died just before recording was finished. It's said approximately 80-90% of his lines were recorded, but none of these recordings have surfaced. He was replaced by one of his SNL colleagues, Mike Myers. He was also planning a Matt Foley film and wanted to do another film with Spade (the movie eventually became Lost & Found). By the time of his death, Farley had also been in talks to co-star Vince Vaughn in the film The Gelfin and also to star in a biopic film about Fatty Arbuckle. Farley had also been in talks for the lead in an adaptation of the novel A Confederacy of Dunces.
By early 1997, a visible decline in Farley's health was frequently noted in the press. Following his final guest appearance on SNL on October 25, 1997,Farley's hoarse voice and flushed skin were the subject of public scrutiny.In the final years of his life, Farley had sought treatment for obesity and drug abuse on seventeen separate occasions.On December 18, 1997, Farley was found dead by his younger brother, John, in his apartment in the John Hancock Center in Chicago.An autopsy later revealed that Farley had died of a cocaine and morphine overdose early that morning.Advanced atherosclerosis was cited as a "significant contributing factor".Farley's death is often compared to that of his SNL idol John Belushi, who also died at age 33 of an accidental drug overdose consisting of cocaine and heroin.
Farley's private funeral was held at Our Lady Queen of Peace Catholic Church in his hometown of Madison, Wisconsin five days after his death. Over five hundred people attended his funeral, many of the comedians who had worked with him on Saturday Night Live and on film including Lorne Michaels, Phil Hartman (who would die five months later), Adam Sandler, Dan Aykroyd (who wore a leather jacket over his suit, same as he did at Belushi’s funeral), John Goodman, Tom Arnold, Chris Rock, George Wendt, and Rob Schneider.Notably absent was Farley's former SNL castmate and close friend David Spade, who was later quoted as saying that he declined to attend Farley's funeral because he "could not be in a room where Chris was in a box." However, Spade did appear on the special 25th anniversary episode of Saturday Night Live, where he held back tears as he called for a moment of remembrance for Farley. Farley's remains were entombed at the Resurrection Catholic Cemetery.
