I totally forget that Bob Odenkirk is the man who wrote the now informous skit Featuring the late great CHRIS FARLEY as MATT FOELY living in a VAN DOWN BY THE RIVER!! What a classic... bless you Bob and R.I.P, CHRIS.

Absolutely one of my favourite sketches of all time. Matt Foley was a genius character to write, Mr. Odenkirk!

Wow, so wild that Odenkirk wrote this iconic sketch! I had no idea his roots went that far back and that deep.

Great observation/insight by Bob at around 2:45. "He/his heart was ALWAYS exposed - and I don't think THAT'S the healthiest thing to be." (Chris Farley) Always thought Jimmie Brogan had it right - i.e. the Balance - Jimmie was exposed but ye didn't wanna push Jimmie too hard (as an audience member at the Improv). Jimmie had that thing about him like "Be careful." But to me maybe the funniest person I've ever seen - just KILLS every time out. Esp if audiences aren't familiar with Jimmie (they're then in a whole lotta trouble!) Esp if they like "To help." To guess punchlines, call something out to irritate Jimmie. Not a good idea at all. Never open yer mouth at a Jimmie Brogan show. Don't "help" him.

Bob's one of my favorite writers - started laughing right away - when Bob says: "There was this contingent of HIPPIES." It was already funny. @1:02. Re: the great late Chris Farley.

Its based off a few people, one is a kid that he used to play rugby with, his Dad, and a Preacher from his old Church. Matt Foley is a real person, its the preacher.

Chris Farley named the character after his friend and former rugby teammate, Fr. Matt Foley.

Bob Odenkirk has really blossomed into a Great Actor, and Better Call Saul is such an Awesome Show.. I Honestly think it’s up to Par with Breaking Bad!

Just a few weeks ago, I discovered that Bob helped produce the short lived Tenacious D series. Now I discover he basically made Chris Farley a household name w/ the Matt Foley character. This guy deserves more 🌹‘s imo. 💯

In an insane alternate universe, Farley survived the 90's and a few years later was cast as the fat, verbally intense corrupt lawyer Saul Goodman in Breaking Bad. Oh maaaan...

It's so crazy how Bryan Cranston and Bob Odenkirk were involved in two of my favorite comedy's when I was a kid and then together were in one of the greatest drama TV shows of all time.

Nobody got bigger laughs than Farley on SNL, no disrespect to Gilda, Belushi, Murphy or Ferrell who can all compete for a distant second. Farley held nothing back, and made SNL a funny surprise every Saturday night.

Funny how Breaking Bad was the show that introduced me to Bob Odenkirk, then I find out he’s a part of tv comedy for over a decade prior to that

Don't feel bad, it was the same for me and I expect it was the same for thousands if not millions of other folks too. He was just so great in Breaking Bad and subsequently Better Call Saul. It's good that he has such a wide range of things he's done, it help to cross-pollinate audiences.

I saw him in a bunch of things over the years, but never really put a name to the face until BB. Most notably, his great appearance on Newsradio "Chock".

So freaky. I was watching an old Conan Obrien interview with Farley depicting the motivational speaker. He talks about how the sketch was written by Odenkirk. And i was like, "Better Call Saul wrote that?" How weird is it that Odenkirk talked about this on Stern after i watched it.
