When he vaulted into stardom via his stint on Saturday Night Live in 1990, Chris Farley wowed colleagues, fans and critics alike with a physicality that recalled both John Belushi and Chevy Chase, and a comedic depth and sensitivity that hinted at great things ahead. Sadly, it all came to an end with his passing at 33 years of age. Here, Farley’s story is told through archive and present-day interviews with those who knew, worked with and loved him, including Adam Sandler, Tom Arnold and Saturday Night Live creator Lorne Michaels.
