Chris Farley’s Motivational Speaker Sketch, Three Years Before He Did It on “SNL”

“Rolling Stone” recently named Chris Farley’s “Matt Foley, Motivational Speaker” sketch the best “Saturday Night Live” sketch of ALL TIME. That’s the one where he “lives in a van down by the river.”

But it wasn’t even written for “SNL”. The comedy troupe Second City just posted a video of Farley doing it LIVE in front of an audience in 1990, three years BEFORE he did it on TV.  There are few small differences, but it’s the same skit.

Farley shows up at 2:01. The dad is Bob Odenkirk, who played Saul on “Breaking Bad.” And Tim Meadows is the one in the red hat.
