The Last Days of Chris Farley

The Last Days of Chris Farley is a new tell all book written by the late comedian’s brother Tom Farley and Tanner Colby, which focuses on the time before the Saturday Night Live legend’s untimely death due to a drug overdose on December 18th, 1997 at the age of 33. The New York Post’s Page Six is reporting that the book should be pretty juicy and even quotes “several of the actor’s friends, who saw the tragedy coming a mile down the line.” (link) There are already some great quotes coming from the book and I’d imagine many of Chris Farley’s (Tommy Boy, Black Sheep) friends have a lot to say on the passing of such a great talent. You can read the entire Page Six report here or by clicking on the picture below:

Chris Farley was the most popular actor on Saturday Night Live at a time when it had some of the best comedic talent of the 90’s, including rising stars like Chris Rock, Adam Sandler, David Spade and Rob Schneider. The guy’s talent was endless and hopefully this book won’t tarnish the legacy of his work, but instead allow fans a glimpse of the demons Farley faced on a daily basis during his long struggle with drugs. Usually books like this tend to be a money grab by the deceased’s family, but The Blot is actually interested in reading The Last Days of Chris Farley because there just isn’t that much info out there about a great young talent taken from the stage well before his time.
