Playful People – Ark – The late Chris Farley

They did not view the Ark as a place to be taught but came with the excitement of children at Christmas. They arrived with an expectation to play and experience in a carnival of creative possibility – that is really what Ark offered. Little did they know they were learning at the same time.

Time seems to separate us, one from the other, yet there is joy in spirit that is eternal. So, from time to time I want to share the workings and wanderings of some playful people who sailed for some years at the Ark Improvisational Theatre.

It was at the Ark that the words of the Motivational Speaker
were first heard from the trailer down by the river. Oddly enough, the picture pasted above is the only picture of Chirs that I found in the ARK files.

Nearly everyone is fondly familiar with Chris’ successful and funny life on stage, television and film. Few know of his growth, struggles beneath the “funny”. The book “The Chris Farley Show” is a well-written, deep and daring leap into his life as revealed by many who loved, respected and miss him.
