Fans of the late Chris Farley can celebrate the tremendous talents of one of Saturday Night Live’s most enduring cast members through the new documentary, "I Am Chris Farley" (Network Entertainment), available now on DVD at the Saturday Night Live: The Exhibition(Premier 5th Avenue, 417 Fifth Avenue) retail store.
Along with the DVD, fans can also pick up other special Farley merchandise on site and online including an authorized biography, a Best Of SNL DVD set, a “Well La dee Freakin’ Dah!” magnet and a t-shirt, paying tribute to one of his most memorable characters, motivational speaker Matt Foley who lives (“…in a van down by the river!”).
SNL fans will also be able to check out and snap "selfies" with Farley’s original Matt Foley costume on display in the exhibition, celebrating the show’s 40-year history, including video of Farley favorites like the Chippendale dancers and more. The exhibition is immersive - letting people behind-the-scenes to touch, see, hear and feel the adrenaline-rush process that Farley, and everyone involved with the show, went through to bring a new episode to life each week.
Chris Farley was a kinetic bundle of comedic energy who boisterously crashed his way through a string of memorable characters, catch phrases, skits and films before his untimely passing in 1997. "I Am Chris Farley" features exclusive interviews with Farley’s family and friends, including many of his closest SNL costars. It’s a loving and poignant look at the real story of the sensitive youth from Wisconsin whose larger than life personality went on to leave a lasting impact on the world of comedy, primarily as a result of his six year run on Saturday Night Live.
"I Am Chris Farley" is available on DVD in the Saturday Night Live: The Exhibition retail space at Premier 5th Avenue along with a variety of SNL themed merchandise, much of which is exclusive to the exhibition. Tickets for the exhibition, which brings together original props, sets, videos, costumes and more from the groundbreaking show, are available at http://www.SNLtheexhibition.com.
