Chevy Chase continues to demonstrate that he must be a joy to work with on the set of Community. It hasn’t been six months since Chase’s very public spat with Community creator Dan Harmon. Then last month (after NBC removed Harmon as showrunner) Chase made it clear that he still wasn’t happy, calling the hours “hideous” and sitcoms “the lowest form of comedy,” and though he complimented the young cast (calling them his “friends”) he made sure to mention that he was aware that he wasn’t “working with the great innovators of all time.”
I’m not sure what’s more entertaining — the comedy of the show Community or the backstage drama that has surrounded the series over the past year. Star Joel McHale is the latest member of the cast to step forward and talk about the departure of creator and show runner Dan Harmon and co-star Chevy Chase’s numerous comments to the media about how much he dislikes working on the show.
