“Everybody’s having fun out here. They drinking, they fighting, they pissing on the streets. It’s New Year’s Eve. They loving the ladies.”


Happy Birthday Christopher Crosby Farley (February 15, 1964 - December 18, 1997)  →  “I used to think that you could get to a level of success where the laws of the universe didn’t apply. But they do. It’s still life on life’s terms.”

“When you were with Chris Farley, you were powerless, like a drug…he was like the sun. He had a lighthouse in his heart.” ~ Jay Mohr

“He was a kind of secret, angelic being who tore too quickly through life, leaving a wake of laughter behind him.” ~ Tom Schiller

“I remember we all went onstage and tried this; he would fall into a breakaway table, and he could fall without putting his hands out. You try to do it, you always use your hands, ‘cause that’s your survival instinct. He had no survival instinct.” ~ Norm MacDonald

“Whenever I was watching Chris perform I would think ‘How do I get where he’s at? How do I get to be as funny and as honest and as warm?’ There are comics that I’ve worked with who are the most self-involved bastards you’ve ever met in your life, and they can’t fake the kind of decency Chris had.” ~ Alec Baldwin

“He [Chris] was a much deeper person than he let on. One gift he had was the ability to make people laugh. The other gift he had was himself. Just being the person he was was a gift for others.” ~ Fr. Joe Kelly

“I have no doubt that Chris is sitting pretty up in Heaven entertaining everybody. You can say that addiction is a selfish disease, but Chris wasn’t selfish. He always looked outside of himself.” ~ Siobhan Fallon

“He had, as everyone knows, the biggest heart. A man of humility, he had all the values of the Christ. I hope with all the others who have passed through the veil, he’ll be there to greet me as I go across.” ~ Dan Aykroyd
