Publisher Description

The New York Times bestselling 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.

Great but deeply saddening read

I tore through this book and it was great to get a look behind the scenes of the motivational speaker we all love from SNL. Really ranks as one of the saddest stories I’ve read, however. Can’t see his SNL appearances and late night appearances in the same light when you’re aware of his own self-loathing.
