Parthenia Farley is an…
Chris Farley is an absolute legend in my book (or “Lejund” as his family would spell it). To this day I still don’t know of a comedic actor who had such an explosive presence every time he stepped foot in front of a camera. The man was a hurricane. A force of nature. And despite his excessive girth and Falstaffian body type, Chris was able to bring an incredible amount of physicality to his comedy.
So I thought I should take a moment to showcase some of my favorite physically gifted moments of Farley’s from both film and television over the years…
Quickly, it only seems appropriate to first give a quick shoutout back to the first Falstaffian SNL graduate who brought raw energy to the silver screen. John Belushi was also a man who could dance you off the stage, slip & fall and rebound like a cat, or even cartwheel his way down a church aisle after “seeing the light.”
Interestingly, Farley’s idol growing up was Belushi and you can certainly see how the former had a huge impact on the latter’s life work.
But this post is about our favorite sweaty, spazzy, bowling pin of a man — Chris Farley. So let’s get to it, shall we!
He glistened with sweat as he outclassed the raw sexual prowess of Patrick Swayze for a Chippendales audition.
Who can forget the most lovable dancing lunch lady?
Hoagies & grinders, hoagies & grinders…Navy beans, navy beans, navy beans…
He figured skated his way through our hearts and pumped up the jam alongside Nancy Kerrigan.
And even a baker’s dozen heart attacks didn’t stop him from shimmying his heart out.
Farley had a knack for breaking or crashing through things. As is evident on arguably his most iconic SNL skit as Matt Foley, the amped up motivational speaker who just happened to live in a van down by the river…
And speaking of living in a van down by the river, it has never been so damn stylish as right now! Check out the front/back of our all-new 1 OZ Solid Gold Chris Farley Down By The River coin…

Aside from his incredible ability to move his entire body in an oddly poetic manner, Chris was also an absolute wizard with facial expressions that brought us all to tears of laughter. We’ve made sure to add some great facial reactions of the man to further illustrate his great gift.
Chris rose to fame as fast as his hair in this shot, and his status grew quickly.
Take for instance his wild entrance on the Letterman show that David himself would say is arguably the greatest he’d ever seen.
Chris didn’t half-ass anything. For better and worse, Chris lived every moment like it was his last.
Black Sheep wasn’t nearly the masterpiece that Tommy Boy was, nor were any of his later movies, but you still had to view each film because Chris made so-so films must-watches.
Vote for Donelly!!!
Guess what he was saying in this moment?
Hint: it’s not “Hack knees off.”
Beverly Hills Ninja
Chris next played “The Great White Ninja” and demonstrated that he could wield a sword, nunchucks, fish…just not very gracefully. Still, he was more agile and utterly hilarious in every frame of the film.
Like the moment where he tries to hide his body from the beautiful blonde damsel.
Again, his expressions kill me.
I would pay any amount of money to see Chris act as my personal Japanese chef.
Farley’s last film was arguably his worst, but again, I could still consume this film time after time like it was candy.
“Oh Dear God No!…Come on you damn bird!!”
If you are not smiling at this, please check your pulse real quickly.
But no matter what Chris did in his later days, we still always come back to the moment he lifted his fat belly above his belt and screamed about not ending up in a van down by the river…
