. "I worked with Sam Kinison as well and I killed them (Chris Farley, John Belushi) all" . - on Tom Green Live
Chris Farley (who went to school here in Milwaukee) would have been 50 today. The guys I admire, who lived to be 93 and 94, guys like Upton Sinclair, Frank Zeidler, Pete Seeger, George Bernard Shaw?

Those quickest with a joke and possessing a rich sense of humor are more often than not people who also carry with them deep pain.

For some it's a matter of unresolved familial issues, for others it's stems from suffering tremendous loss, for others it's a result of a traumatic experience...there are more things that can damage an individual's psyche than could ever be listed. Some of the most popular comedic talents of our time have publically struggled with, and in some cases unfortunately lost, their personal battles with their "monster": Richard Pryor, Sam Kinison, John Belushi, Martin Lawrence, Richard Jeni, Chris Farley, Greg Giraldo, Fredd ...

The "Atuk Curse" has become one of the better known urban legends of Hollywood. Its first victim, supposedly, was John Belushi, who had read the script and was reportedly enthusiastic about taking on the role of Atuk. Shortly afterwards, he was found dead of a drug overdose in 1982. After Belushi's death the part was offered to comedian Sam Kinison, who accepted it in 1988. Kinison filmed at least one scene for the film before he grew dissatisfied with the script and demanded parts of it be re-written, halting production. His leaving the film led the production company to file a lawsuit against him; by the time it settled, Kinison was destitute. Not long afterward, while talks were underway to continue the project, Kinison died in a car crash in 1992. The curse supposedly struck again in 1994 when ...
