Sam is number 1 on this list because he had over come his demons. He was the original Rock Star of Comedy and was living that lifestyle to the fullest. After years of battling his drug addictions, Sam finally won his sobriety, and then was hit by a drunk driver.

It's scary to think how identical Chris Farley is to Belushi in so many ways. They were both discovered at 2nd City in Chicago - They were both stars on Saturday Night Live - and they both died of Drug overdoses at the age of 33.... The only reason I put Chris higher on this list is I feel he had a bit more of a lovable teddy bear style to him. Which made losing him more tragic.
