Chevy Chase Hates ‘Saturday Night Live’ And Your Favorite Comedians

Chevy Chase has officially hit “f**k it all” age. Bless.

The actor came under fire this year for telling racist jokes on the set of Community and feuding with creator Dan Harmon over the direction of the show. He showed up drunk to a Saturday Night Live reunion in 2015 and has been out of the spotlight, aside from a road rage incident where he got his ass beat.

Now, with no future in television, he’s burning it all down.

Speaking to The Washington Post, Chase ripped the current status of SNL:

First of all, between you and me and a lamppost, jeez, I don’t want to put down Lorne or the cast, but I’ll just say, maybe off the record, I’m amazed that Lorne has gone so low. I had to watch a little of it, and I just couldn’t f—— believe it.

“That means a whole generation of shitheads laughs at the worst f—— humor in the world,” he says. “You know what I mean? How could you dare give that generation worse s**t than they already have in their lives? It just drives me nuts.”

Chase didn’t stop at ripping the show today, he took aim at previous cast members.

…what about Will Ferrell doing George W. Bush?

“Just not funny. Makes $25 million a picture.”

Tina Fey?

“I liked Tina. I didn’t see what all the folderol was about. She was good.”

How about Kristen Wiig?

“I liked her a lot. She had two things going for her. She had clear-cut chops, and she was pretty, too. But what happened to her? Where did she go?”

Eddie Murphy?

“I thought Eddie Murphy was funny. Gumby. I found that funny and people loved that. . . . Stevie Wonder, he did well. [Pause.] It’s not that hard, for Christ’s sake. Your skin’s the same color. You just put on some sunglasses and do this.”

At some point, Chevy will return to television in this big comeback and we’ll all forget that he’s bitter and racist. Until then, I’m here for him ripping SNL.

In honor of Chevy and his criticisms of the show, I will now end this article no real logical conclusion or point.
