Actor, comedian and former Saturday Night Live alum Chris Farley would have turned 55 today, but the legend's life was cut short at the age of 33 after a drug overdose. He starred in ten films, including comedic hits Tommy Boy, Beverly Hills Ninja and Black Sheep.
Adam Sandler, who was a close friend of Farley's, sang about the fun-loving entertainer during a tribute to him on the 21st anniversary of his death in 2018. When his buddy died, "The party came to an end," Sandler sang in an emotional tribute song in his Netflix stand-up special Adam Sandler: 100% Fresh.
Chris Farley is gone -- but never forgotten -- and today his fans can pay tribute and watch Chris Farley's top 10 movie and SNL moments on the late actor's birthday.
1. Farley Fries (SNL)Some of Chris Farley's funniest moments happened during his time on the show between 1990 and 1995. Likewise, some of his most laugh-worthy moments happened in the Gap Girl skits. The first Gap Girl episode featured Charles Barkley and the band Skid Row. In it, Chris Farley, Adam Sandler and David Spade are dressed in drag and are playing Gap employees that don't take their job seriously at all.
The Gap Girl gem Farley Fries is considered to be one of the top 10 funniest Chris Farley sketches of all time. However, the moment David Spade's character reminds a fry-munching Farley that she's on a diet it turns gut-bustingly funny.
2. Bat Scene (Black Sheep)Chris Farley starred alongside long-time friend David Spade in the hilarious cult classic film Black Sheep. Hilarity ensues when the two discover a bat resting on a picture frame. Farley, of course, can't resist touching the creature, and the over-the-top antics and idiocy that result as the two try to contain it will definitely make you chuckle.
3. Chippendales Audition (SNL)Chris Farley busted some epic dance moves beside legendary Dirty Dancer and sex symbol Patrick Swayze as they both vied for a chance to be a part of the striptease troupe Chippendales. You can't help but laugh once the music starts and the two start shaking their moneymakers. What's also bittersweet is the realization when you watch the video that we've lost both of these talented men.
4. Lunch Lady Land (SNL)Besides making us laugh in his many movies, Adam Sandler strums a mean guitar and sings funny songs. In addition to his famous Hannukah song, he performed "Lunch Lady Land" during a skit on SNL that featured an apron-wearing and mole-faced lunch lady (Chris Farley). Farley winds up stealing the show as he and Sandler share some true comedic magic together.
Also, if you'll notice, Adam Sandler can't help from cracking up himself at the sight of his goofy, dancing buddy.
