Chevy Chase Calls 'Community' Mediocre Sitcom In Second Leaked Audio

A second voicemail has leaked expressing Chevy Chase's dissatisfaction with his role on 'Community'.

"The part of the disconnect is obviously, you don't get my humor at all, or what it is I do that's funny, that actually makes people laugh," Chase says in the recording that's said to be a year old.

You can tell because in it Chase actually compliments 'Community' creator Dan Harmon rather than throw profanities at the showrunner like his last voicemail.

"There are two choices. One is the story line -- like everybody gives a shit about the f---king story when they don't even know who the characters are -- or there's make people laugh."

Chase complains that the jokes he makes during filming are cut out in editing.

"It's cut down. For what?," he asks. "So people can follow the story line between Joel McHale and Gillian Jacobs (photosGillian Jacobs photos)? About love affairs and kissing? Come on man, you're missing the point."

"This is not my kind of comedy. I thought you hired me for what I can do that's funny. You've got to give me some range."

"I should have had this talk with you face to face, but I didn't want to because I really like you," he says. "I think your writing is great. I think everything you do is great."

"But the problem really is Dan that you're not there when we shoot, and you're not there when we edit."

"And if you want me on this show again, I have news for you: I don't want it. It's just a mediocre f---king sitcom," he rants. "I want people to laugh, and this isn't funny."

"And it ain't funny to me, because I'm 67-years old and I've been making people laugh a long time, and I've been doing it a lot better than this."

It's not clear who leaked the recording. Last week, Harmon issued an apology for playing the first voicemail to a crowd at a comedy show in Los Angeles.
