Summary

The New York Times best-selling biography of an American comedy legend.
After three years of sobriety, Chris Farley's life was at its creative peak until a string of professional disappointments chased him back to drugs and alcohol. He fought hard against them, but it was a fight he would lose in December 1997. Farley's fans immediately drew parallels between his death and that of his idol, John Belushi. Without looking deeper, however, many failed to see that Farley was much more than just another Hollywood drug overdose. In this officially authorized oral history, Farley's friends and family remember his work and life. Along the way, they tell a remarkable story of boundless energy, determination, and laughter that could only keep the demons at bay for so long.

“the newly released audiobook edition of The Chris Farley Show, an oral biography co-edited by Farley’s brother Tom and journalist Tanner Colby, is full of reminders of how close he had already come to a mid-career breakthrough. ( Salon)

Incredibly sad....

This book, while being a very insight and beautiful look into the life of Chris Farley, is more of a three-part eulogy. It will make you laugh but sits under a cloud of despair while it does it. Finished it in three days because even in death and through others' stories, Chris Farley is still someone that can grab and hold your attention.
