Chevy Chase to Louis C.K.: You're Not Funny
Comedy legend reveals he's no big fan of 'Louie' star
It only seems as though everybody loves comedian Louis C.K., who won two Emmys Sunday night. Among those who don't is hip-shooting "Saturday Night Live" legend Chevy Chase, as he indicated in his inimitable backhanded way during a recent Huffington Post UK interview.
"Yes, I've seen Louis C.K.," Chase said. "I wouldn't in any way make a degrading remark about Louis C.K. The question is do I think anyone is funny? And the answer is not too many people. He might fit right in there."
However, although Chase is not a fan of "Louie," he is not even a fan of his own series, "Community," which came home Emmy-less last night. In the same interview, Chase called his involvement in the NBC series "a big mistake" and sitcoms in general "the lowest form of television."
But how do you really feel, Chev?
"Louie" airs Thursdays at 10:30 p.m. ET/PT on FX.
He sounds quite bitter. He was funny back in the 80's and Christmas Vacation is still one of my favorites (Cousin Eddie was the best part though). It's not Christmas around my house until I see Randy Quaid and family arrive in the RV.
i, for one, have enjoy Chevy Chase's humor..Community is a blast of good times..
happy i am not alone.. i didnt' find Louie, the show, funny..it was serious and caustic humor, versuses funny lite-weight humor is signature Chevy.. Will Ferrell is annoying humor,,and Chevy is right up there with great comedians like Rodney Dangerfield..
Thanks Chevy -- I thought I was the only one that can't stand Louis C.K. I watched 2 minutes of "Louie"and turned the channel.
Louis could never hold a candle to Chevy's talent.
