The Chris Farley Show
A Biography in Three ActsBook - 2008
No one dominated a stage the way Chris Farley did. For him, comedy was not a routine; it was a way of life. Fans knew Chris as Saturday Night Live's sweaty, swaggering, motivational speaker, or as the irresistible Chippendales stripper. His family knew him as sensitive and passionate, deeply religious, and devoted to bringing laughter into others' lives. But Chris did not know moderation, either in his generosity toward friends or in the reckless abandon of his drug and alcohol abuse. For ten years, Chris cycled in and out of rehabilitation centers; ultimately, despite three hard-fought years of sobriety, addiction took his life at the tragically young age of 33. Here he is remembered by family, friends, and colleagues--an evocative and harrowing portrait of a gifted and kindhearted man ultimately torn apart by the demons inside him.--From publisher description.
