Zach and Chevy[]

On his Tumblr site, Zach recalled an incident with Chevy Chase during Season One of Community:

Zach and Chevy

When I laugh, I make a very shrill, high pitched cackle. Sort of like Roseanne, but sans the hundreds of pounds and vagina. It can be embarrassing.

During the rehearsal of my first episode of Community I was cackling pretty hard and this annoyed Chevy. The following is my nervous exchange between myself and Mr. Chase.

Chevy: "Why are you laughing?"

Me:" …"

Chevy: "You think this is funny?"

Me: "Yes."

Chevy: "Didn’t you write this?"

Me: "Yes."

Chevy: "Then you must think that everything you write is hilarious."

Me: "Yes."

The End
