Chris Farley was only 33 when he died from a drug overdose in 1997. His hilarious performances continue to entertain. One of the comic's most memorable skits occurred early in his "SNL" career, in 1990: A Chippendales audition that pits the 300-pounder against hardbody Patrick Swayze. The two couldn't look more different as they strut their stuff onstage. The performance leave the judges torn; they tell Farley and Swayze, "Either of you would make a wonderful addition to the Chippendale family." In the end, they go with Swayze because Farley is "fat and flabby." Even though Swayze is weeping with joy, he can't help but praise his competitor: "He's got some of the sexiest moves I've ever seen! And if you're really serious about going with me, it can only be because his body's so bad!" The fellow cast members also couldn't believe their eyes. "I played one of the judges and my experience was the same as anyone who's seen it on television," Kevin Nealon recalled in Tanner Colby’s biography "The Chris Farley Show." He added, "I can't think of the word to describe it. Incredulous, maybe? I did everything I could to keep a straight face." Mike Myers, who also played a judge, added, "I knew in rehearsal a star was born." Some thought the joke came at too high a price, highlighting Farley's insecurities that fed his battle with addiction. "'Chippendales' was a weird sketch. I always hated it," comedian Chris Rock said in the Farley biography. "The joke of it is, basically, 'We can't hire you because you're fat.' There's no comic twist to it. It's just f***ing mean. A more mentally together Chris Farley wouldn't have done it, but Chris wanted so much to be liked. As funny as that sketch was ... it's one of the things that killed him." Comedian Jeff Garlin agreed that there was more to Farley than fat jokes. "Chris Farley would have still been funny had he weighed 190 pounds and he didn't drink and he didn't smoke and he didn't do anything that was bad for him," he said. "The sad thing is he didn't believe that, and he didn't know that." Despite such criticisms, the sketch is often praised as a classic — and Rolling Stone recently named it one of the funniest of all time. – By Claudine Zap (@zapkidd)
Conservative Americans did not enjoy the Supreme Court rulings that came at the end of June, bemoaning the decisions that helped save Obamacare and that granted marriage equality to gays and lesbians. Fortunately, they have their good ol' buddy Jon Stewart and The Daily Show to make them feel better. Stewart pointed out a couple Supreme Court victories for the right. One was a ruling that allowed continued use of midazolam, a controversial sedative used in executions, and the other was a ruling that struck down the Environmental Protection Agency's power plant regulations. Said Stewart, "So, yes, gay people have the right to marry and poor people have the right to insurance, but on the bright side, Americans can still kill prisoners painfully and everyone else slowly. Yay."
Danielle Brooks, aka Taystee from Orange Is The New Black, made her late night show debut a memorable one with a bleep-filled performance of her rap from OITNB's first season. When she was done, the audience applauded, Andy Richter grinned and applauded, while Conan was left flustered. *facepalm*
Jon Hamm stopped by The Daily Show With Jon Stewart on Tuesday night and remembered all of the times the host crooned some tunes on the show. We got to see 16 years worth of ditties in a neat little three minute long package.
Jon Stewart took time on The Daily Show Monday to celebrate the recent Supreme Court decision that granted marriage equality to gay and lesbian Americans and to make fun of the vitriol coming from conservatives over it. Stewart, told those who oppose the ruling, "Your problem here is bald faced out in the open common sense experience, that's why you're not going to win the marriage equality fight." He then used a clip of Trump admitting that it's a fair point in how it's hypocritical for him to demand "traditional marriage" only when he himself has been wed to three different women. Said Stewart, "You're not going to win the marriage equality fight because even a man pathologically disposed to not understand other people's points of view, unless it is also labeled Trump, even he gets it."
