The man defied all odds by playing the same character, presumably himself, in every role that he ever filled. Yet he still made that funny from 1990 to approximately Almost Heroes and then back to funny again for his small role in Dirty Work.
Look, if you ever watched Saturday Night Live in the 90's then you already know that Chris Farley was a master of gut-busting comedy. I submit the following evidence-
How many times have you quoted or heard quoted any of these Chris Farley lines:
- "Living in a VAN down by the RIVER!"
- "It's HERBIE Hancock..."
NOTE: This is NOT the same person as John Hancock.
- "Fat guy in a little coat..."
- "Well, not me personally... But a guy I know. Him and her GOT IT ON! WOOO WEEE!"
- "I was checking the a ... specs on the end line, for the rotary, girder, I'm retarded."
And so on... The defense rests.

The most fun aspect of doing these CRACKED Topic bits is that you get to hate on stupid crap (David Caruso) and be funny about it. This was a super funny guy who died young. This is how not funny losing him was:
On why he chose not to attend Chris Farley's funeral, David Spade said, "I just couldn't have gone into a room where Chris was in a box."
