Chris Farley died in 1997, but will always be remembered for his over-top-performances from his movie roles and Saturday Night Live. Farley’s most memorable character from his SNL days is arguably Matt Foley, the motivational speaker who lives in a van down by the river and wreaks havoc on the families he tries to “help.”
Sadly, Farley isn’t here to do Foley any longer, but David Spade did include a previously unheard 20 -year-old voice message from Farley, in character as Foley, that was recently sent to him, and included it in his new audio book Almost Interesting. It’s always sad to think about how many laughs we were robbed of with Farley’s death, but this curtain call as Foley is a helluva cool find.
Here’s Farley as Matt Foley, one last time.
