One of the first "Saturday Night Live" stars tells the Los Angeles Times that he doesn’t find Jon Stewart or Stephen Colbert funny.
"I don’t tend to laugh at Jon Stewart or Colbert,” said Chevy Chase, who was part of the original cast of NBC’s “Saturday Night Live” when it premiered in 1975. “I feel much more as if there’s a desperation to their performances, that they are not just naturally funny, physical people. I’m not so sure the commentary on those shows hasn’t already been covered by the Onion or by ‘SNL.’"
Chase, 68, said he agreed to join NBC’s "Community" after getting the script and reading as his character introduced himself as "Pierce Hawthorne, and ‘Yes, that is Hawthorne from Hawthorne Wipes, the moist towelette.’ I figured I’ve got to really look into this, because I like the attitude. My third daughter’s least favorite word is ‘moist,’ so I thought I could bother her too. It was a bonus.”
