The Second City unearthed and uploaded a comedy first from its archives on Monday, as we can see the July 1990 debut of Chris Farley’s motivational speaker character, Matt Foley, who scares children by telling them they might end up like him, living in a van down by the river.
The rest of us would see Farley as Matt Foley on Saturday Night Live almost three years later.
But before all of that, there was this.
This is the sketch, “Motivation,” from the Second City revue, “Flag Smoking Permitted in Lobby Only, or Censorama.” Directed by Tom Gianas. With Bob Odenkirk, Tim Meadows, Jill Talley, Holly Wortell and David Pasquesi joining Farley.
