As a special note for 1997...

This year we lost a great actor. Perhaps the funniest man ever to appear on Saturday Night Live, Chris Farley passed away in December of 1997. Always noted for being full of life (which is quite an understatement) and for being a lovable guy, Chris Farley will be dearly missed. No longer will we see him put on his powerful display of comedic energy and laugh ourselves silly. However, he will always be in our memories and in our video copies of Tommy Boy and others.
