- Library Hall
Chris Farley lived his life full speed and committed to make everyone around him laugh out loud.

I Am Chris Farley showcases the performer's most memorable characters and skits from television and film, paired with iconic photographs, home movies and family snapshots, to fully round out the story of this comedy legend - a bear of a man who nevertheless had remarkable grace and physicality.
