Chevy Chase calls ‘Community’ a “mediocre sitcom”

You might think that a comedian who has made nothing but awful movies since 1989 would be somewhat humble, but Chevy Chase is a complete dick and always has been so he doesn't really feel that way.

To illustrate that point, Celebuzz has a second recording with him lecturing 'Community' creator Dan Harmon about comedy and what's wrong with the show (SPOILER: 'Community', which literally means "a group of people", should focus on one person, specifically Chevy Chase, instead of wasting time on unimportant characters like star Joel McHale).

"It's just a f*cking mediocre sitcom! I want people to laugh and this isn't funny."
"It ain't funny to me because I'm 67-years-old ... I've been doing this a long time. I've been making a lot of people laugh — a lot better than this."

Take that Dan Harmon! Chevy Chase wasn't just some ancillary character in 'The Karate Dog', he was the Karate Dog. 'Goose on the Loose' (2006), 'Bad Meat' (2004), 'Vacuums' (2003); each and every one a masters class in comedy. Someone should get Harmon a VCR and/or time machine so he can watch Chevys' 20 minutes of screen-time in 'Caddyshack'.
