Watch Adam Sandler perform moving Chris Farley tribute on ‘SNL’

Adam Sandler performed a moving tribute to his late friend and castmate Chris Farley as he made his debut as host of yesterday's Saturday Night Live.

The two comedians had been SNL castmates from 1990 until the pair were fired in 1995. Farley tragically died of a cocaine and morphine overdose two years later when he was only 33 years old.

Watch Adam Sandler's touching tribute to his late friend:

Sandler celebrates the larger-than-life comic in a song in which he reminisces about the first time he met Farley. The 52-year-old actor also sang about Farley's most iconic SNL characters and sketches.

"He was a one-man party, you know who I’m talking about: I’m talking about my man, Chris Farley," Sandler sang.

"On Saturday night, my man would always deliver / Whether he was the bumblebee girl or he was living in a van down by the river / He loved the Bears and Ditka, danced at Chippendale’s with Swayze / When they replaced his Folgers, he went full-on crazy."

The song then took a more personal turn, touching on the pair's friendship.

"Hey buddy, life’s moved on but you still bring us so much joy / Make my kids laugh with your YouTube clips and Tommy Boy / And when they ask me who is the funniest guy I ever knew / I tell them hands down, without a doubt, it’s you."

Sandler also performed the Farley tribute in his 2018 Netflix stand-up special 100% Fresh.
