Storyline

Everybody remembers Chris Farley, the big loveably guy from Saturday Night Live. Before he was the Beverly Hills Ninja, or Tommy Boy, or even before he was in Black Sheep or Almost Heroes, Chris was on Saturday Night Live and played characters like Matt Foley the energized motivational speaker, Bennet Brauer the gross-out news correspondent, Chippendales' dancer, and many more!

Quotes

Matt Foley: Hey you kids are probably saying to yourselves: I'm gonna go out there and grab the world by the tail! and wrap it around and pull it down and put it in my pocket. Well I'm here to tell you that you're probably going to find out, as you go out there, that you're not going to amount to jack squat!

Live in a van down by the river. one of the best snl skits on one of the best videos
10 April 2001 | by (United States) – See 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+
