With all that’s going on with my family, I wish I could bring back someone who wasn’t a celebrity. However, I’ll stay true to the question.
There’s quite a few celebrities who have passed away that I’d bring back. I suppose I’d bring back either Chris Farley or Phil Hartman, because both were amazing comedians who passed well before their time. I’m also a huge fan of Saturday Night Live, but the older stuff, like early 90s and before. But my favourite cast was when Chris and Phil were both present (so from 1990-1995ish). I love Chris Farley’s in your face humour, he really mastered physical comedy – if you haven’t seen him in SNL or films like Tommy Boy, you’re really missing out. I love Phil Hartman because he could keep a straight face while playing such outrageous characters, and just had a quirk that made him so funny to watch. He was a big part of my childhood, because he was a regular voice on the Simpsons before he passed.
If I could bring either back, I think I’d be doing the world of comedy a favour.
There are very few full Phil Hartman sketches online to share, but here are a few bloopers:
And here’s a video that most people have probably seen of Chris Farley on SNL, which is one of his more popular sketches – again, not my personal favourite, but there’s few good clips online (damn you copyright!):
