'Community' Creator

Chevy Chase Was DRUNK

During Voice Mail Rant

4/3/2012 10:05 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has obtained an audio recording of "Community" creator Dan Harmon discussing the Chevy Chase voice mail moments before playing the tape for an audience at a recent comedy event ... in which Harmon calls Chase an "A-hole" who was probably DRUNK when he made the call.

Harmon played the tape at an event called "Harmontown" -- a monthly comedy event he hosts at an L.A. comedy club.

Sources tell us ... while on stage, Harmon vented about Chevy's alleged tantrum during the taping of the season finale of Community ... explaining, "I had written a very simple scene that Chevy couldn't possibly f**k up."

We're told Chase objected to the scene ... but Harmon says he stuck to his guns because he had an emotional attachment to the material.

Chevy walked off the set ... but according to Harmon, Chase eventually sent Dan a text message in an effort to smooth things over.

Harmon didn't accept the apology ... telling the Harmontown crowd, "I said f**k you ... you breached your contract, you're an a**hole."

Harmon continued, "And then what happened a day later? That night ... after what I'm guessing is two bottles of Beaujolais? Ladies and gentleman ... Chevy Chase." Harmon then played the entire voice mail for the crowd.

Among the new soundbites ... Chase tells Harmon, "If you were here now, I'd f**king kick your teeth out." He adds, "You're not funny ... you're OK."

Still no word on whether Chevy will return to "Community" next season.

Listen to the tape again... I think Dan Harmon said "two bottles of Beaujolais" NOT Busch Light. Can you picture Chevy drinking Busch Light beer? I can't. I can picture him drinking a glass or bottle of wine.

Still, it seems that Chase handled it privately, while Harmon decided to publicly attack Chase. If Harmon can't grow up and handle the situation like a man, he should find a nice rock to crawl under.

The Community is not very funny at all. If college was like that played on Community. I would never go. Going to College is a serious matter not a joke or funny at all.

"No word on whether Chevy will be back next season!?" Is there word on whether any of them will be back next season!? That show has sucked for a while now.

Dan Harmon is the biggest chickens*** in the biz. Tells his side of the story from bully pulpits. What a Hollywood sized d*bag. When I see his name, it means don't watch.

There are a few things you should never do when you're drinking, e-mail, voice mail, facebook, twitter, or other electronic networking. Aside from that who hasn't been drunk and messed up from time to time? Chevy ain't the most entertaining guy on the planet but drunk? jeez, who woulda thunk it!! Get a life Harmon.

So what if he is drunk! Dan Harmon is still a "Punk Ass Petty Bitch" :) The drink probably saved Chevy Chase from whipping his ass (as he should have slugged him when he did it). Classy is as Classy does. We love you Chevy Chase!

Have you seen Harmon at the Community Pressor's. He is a self important guy who wants to be performing. He makes a show about everything that he is doing and he isn't funny at all. They'll cancel this show and we'll see what a happens to him? Fat ****

Chevy Chase is a legend and if someone pisses him off enough for him to leave a message like this, then I'm on his side. Chevy is an original writer from SNL - the man knows his stuff.
