Watch Chris Farley's Original 'Down by the River' Sketch From His Second City Days

I know that cast members on Saturday Night Live often bring sketches from their pre-SNL days to the show — half of Kyle Mooney’s ideas this season come from his YouTube channel — but I never knew that Chris Farley’s Motivational Speaker originated on the Second City stage. The skech, recently named the best Saturday Night Live sketch of all time by Rolling Stone, is very much as you remember it, except there’s no coffee table upon which Farley can crash, and look: The Dad is played by Bob Oedenkirk.


R.I.P. Mr. Farley, who we lost 16 years ago this month.

Here's some Daveed Diggs for you. On Daveed Diggs' digs, actually. That man does things with clothes that should not make sense, but are absolutely perfect. (Go Fug Yourself)

Woody Allen has "so moved on" from his daughter's accusations and says he never even thinks about it. He equates her words about him to a bad review he won't read and comments on how wacky it is that Mia Farrow is his mother-in-law. He is the worst. (Celebitchy)

Not The Worst but still very gross: Leonardo DiCaprio and his Pussy Posse Wolf Pack were on the douche prowl in NYC. (Lainey)

Here are 5 under-the-radar shows. I had never even heard of the first two. (Uproxx)
