Chevy Chase has had a long and distinguished showbiz career (SNL, National Lampoon, Caddyshack, Community etc. etc. etc.), but it sounds like his Evening With... show last night will be a peculiar highlight.
The blurb for the show describes Chase as "one of the most honoured and beloved actors of his generation" and a "comedy legend", so hopes were high for the "intimate" celebration of his half-century in the business.
Interviewing Chase at the Eventim Apollo in Hammersmith, London last night was none other than Mike Read.
That's former BBC Radio 1 DJ and singer/performer of 'UKIP Calypso' Mike Read.
If the instant reviews from fans on Twitter are anything to go by, it wasn't a match made in heaven (watch out for some swearing):
Mike Read genuinely pulled out an acoustic guitar and made Chevy Chase sing a song from 35 years ago nobody remembered.- Michael M (@michaelmphysics) January 13, 2018
I am watching Chevy Chase being interviewed on stage by former Radio 1 DJ Mike Read, and it’s going about as well as you might expect.- Chris Hewitt (@ChrisHewitt) January 13, 2018
