The Lineup Is Set For Chris Farley Tribute
“Saturday Night Live” veterans Tim Meadows and Jim Breuer are among those tapped to take part in the fourth annual “Comics Come Home” fundraiser in honor of former “SNL” star Chris Farley, who died in 1997.
The comedy show benefit began in Farley’s hometown, Madison, Wis., in 1998 to raise money for the Chris Farley Foundation, and has sold out each year. Among the other comedians set to take part in the event on Dec. 1 are Tom Arnold, Tim Kazurinsky (“SNL” ) and Wanda Sykes (“The Downer Channel”). Breuer has acted as host for “Comics Come Home” since it began.
Last year’s benefit raised over $50,000 for the foundation, which was founded by Farley’s family to promote drug and alcohol awareness in schools.
