Chevy Chase Slams Current Day 'SNL,' Gets Brutally Honest Talking About Will Ferrell, Tina Fey & More

Former Saturday Night Live original cast member Chevy Chase is slamming the current state of the show and giving his opinion on some of the show’s most beloved cast members like Tina Fey and Will Ferrell.

Here are some highlights from the 74-year-old comedian’s interview…

On what he thinks of SNL today: “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. You know what I mean? How could you dare give that generation worse sh*t than they already have in their lives? It just drives me nuts.”

On Will Ferrell and his George W. Bush impression on the show: “Just not funny. Makes $25 million a picture.”

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

On 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?”

On 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.”

    Chevy’s grumpy. Better get him a warm bottle of milk. SNL is bad right now but he’s just mad that he’s on the outs with casting (especially after the stunts he pulled on Community)

    Known to be one of the biggest assholes ever in the acting world. He’s just pissed because no one wants to do anything with him because, again, he’s an asshole.

    He might be a douche, but can’t say he’s wrong about SNL.

  • Jack Lean

    Wow, what a pathetic and bitter old man Chase has become. Is he angling for GOP membership?

    The old fart was horrible in “Kentucky Fried Movie” decades ago and each of his movies got worse… and who on god’s green Earth wanted a sequel to “Fletch?’

    What a weenie… which, by the way, he debuted in the first movie to snickers of pity.

  • Jack Lean

    Horsecrap.
    SNL cast members like Fey, Ferrell, Oteri, Murphy, Hartman, Julia-Louis Dreyfus, Kate McKinnon and a YUGE number of others have made SNL last FIFTY YEARS!

    What have you made that has lasted five decades and entertained millions?

  • Jack Lean

    If someone had paid the insecure, dull schlub the money back in the 70’s, he would have made “Fletch Five.”

  • Nelson

    Obviously talent has come from the show, but the show itself most of the time isn’t funny these days. Going into every episode I expect for it to not be too funny vs. thinking episodes are going to rock.

  • Dee

    That elite Vanderbilt blood…

    OMG. what did I just read? What an angry man. Wait, we’re going to hear from his agent that he has a drinking problem, is ashamed of his comments, and is entering rehab. Right?
