Chevy Chase (b. 1943) is a comic actor and one of the early stars of Saturday Night Live, whose sketch roles included anchoring "Weekend Update."

When the Muppets missed a scheduled appearance during the first season of the show, he stood in and performed a sketch with his bare hands as puppets on the "Land of Gorch" set. He interacted with the Muppets on a few occasions, such as telling them that their scheduled act was canceled in the show hosted by Raquel Welch, and being told by The Mighty Favog that if the Muppets stay on the show, they can get The Beatles appear on the show for free. Chase also wrote at least one segment.[1]

He later appeared in Follow That Bird as a newscaster who reported on Big Bird's journey and mispronounced the name of Sesame Street.

He starred in the movie Spies Like Us, where in one scene he shared a scene and some dialogue with Frank Oz. He is most recently a member of the cast of Community as Pierce Hawthorne.

  • When Baby Fozzie uses the line "Good evening, I'm Fozzie Bear and you're not!" in the Muppet Babies episode "A Punch Line to the Tummy," his lack of audience response causes confusion, as it always used to work for Chevy Chase on "Weekend Update."
