Chevy Chase + The Learning Annex = Fun for the Whole Family

Or not.

The good guys and gals over at A Special Thing remind us that Chevy Chase will be hosting a class at The Learning Annex on how to "stay visible."

An Evening with Chevy Chase

Check out this copy from the press report:

He has written for Lily Tomlin and the Smothers Brothers, and earned a Writers Guild of America Award. In addition, he won an Emmy Award for co-writing The Paul Simon Special.


Anyways, it's hard to determine what day a noticeable chunk of the general public turned against Chevy Chase. The IMDB message board suggests December 16th, 2004, as the day the comments definitively stopped saying nice things like "Funniest Man Alive" and started saying "What a butthead."

Apparently, disparaging comments towards the President had something to do with it. One can also cite that the release of Live From New York the previous year--THE SNL insider's bible book--was a big strike against Chevy Chase's character. In it, Chevy was more or less villified in personal accounts by other cast and crew members on SNL. Some have since apologized, but it's hard to shake an image painted on so thick.

An unscientific Google survey:
"I love Chevy Chase" returns 125 pages.
"I hate Chevy Chase" returns 23 pages.

Chevy will be speaking July 11th, at 7PM at an UNDISCLOSED NYC LOCATION. The location becomes disclosed once you give the Learning Annex 20 clams.
