Joel McHale and Chevy Chase Settle Their ‘Community’ Differences With a Hug
After a very public feud involving voicemail, accusations of mediocrity and a mention of Chevy Chase’s genitalia by the sixty-seven-year-old comedian himself, Chase and his ‘Community‘ co-star, Joel McHale decided to make nice at Comedy Central’s ’2012 Comedy Awards,’ this past weekend.
The ‘Community’ stars took to New York’s Hammerstein Ballroom stage together to present an award and take the opportunity to make light of their rocky relationship.
“What an absolute joy it is to work alongside a comic legend, and I know all those pratfalls are because of an inoperable tumor,” said McHale. In response, Chase referred to his ‘Community’ foil as a “brilliant actor, who has a horrible eating disorder.”
While McHale and Chase put their differences aside for the night, comic legends Robin Williams and the Don Rickles were honored with Williams receiving the Stand-Up Icon Award and Rickles the Johnny Carson Award.
But of course, the really winners at the ’2012 Comedy Awards’ are ‘Community’ fans, who will surely be heartened to see the stars of their beloved sitcom squash their beef and do what they do best, make people laugh.
Comedy Central’s ’2012 Comedy Awards’ airs Sunday, May 6th.
