our sources 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.
