We all have our own list of top "Saturday Night Live" skits, and so does Rolling Stone magazine in its new list of the 50 greatest of all time (see rollingstone.com for full list), according to Yahoo Screen.
Its No. 1 is hard to argue with: 1993's Matt Foley, Motivational Speaker, starring the legendary Chris Farley. The screaming, sweating, life force of Farley proved he was the "greatest physical comedian since John Belushi," as Rolling Stone put it.
The character is, as Farley explains, 35 years old, divorced, and "living in a van down by the river." The line has lived on, even though Farley died in 1997 at the age of 33. David Spade, who is lectured by Farley in the skit, cannot keep it together. The former cast member recalled that Farley surprised him by hitching and twisting his belt during the sketch, Yahoo Screen reports.
