Rock told the story behind an old photo of himself, Adam Sandler, Farley and David Spade on Rock’s Bring the Pain comedy tour. They were in Los Angeles and Rock said it was one of the last times he saw Farley alive.
“It looks like the last time I saw Chris alive,” Rock told the publication. “I would see him again if I have a gig in Chicago. We tried hanging out after that, but … I don’t know if you’ve ever really hung out with an addict. Towards the end, something that’s not the drug a chore. “
He said their last night together was at Farley’s apartment.
“He showed me his apartment. I go, I see him out the window and I said, ‘This is probably the last time I’ll see him.’ I knew, “he said.
Rock, Sandler, and Spade remain nearby to this day. Sandler paid tribute to Farley in a sweet song when he hosted “SNL” in 2019.
“Then he rolled the car across the room / And slowly danced with the cleaning lady / He was a one-man party / You know who I’m talking about / I’m talking about my friend Chris Farley,” Sandler sang.
“Me, Sandler, Spade and Farley – we shared an office on Saturday Night Live,” recalled Rock. “We called it a dorm. We’re friends to this day. I love these guys.”
