Joel McHale brought his charming attitude and “acidic” humor to Conan on Monday, promoting his new show on CBS, his book, and his one-man war against Angela Lansbury. That comes after Conan reveals he has a little green bone to pick with McHale over a certain portion of his book. I’m sure it’s not the first time that Conan has been compared to some freakish looking leprechaun, but McHale is not nice to quite a few people in this book. There’s the already mentioned Lansbury and then we have the way Chevy Chase is represented in the book.
It’s well known that Chase and McHale literally butted heads a few times on the set of Community, but to ensure future actors and actresses are prepared, McHale has included a how-to guide for dealing with a Chevy Chase attack. It might be worth buying the book for this alone.
Chase isn’t the only Community cast member to get made fun of in the book. Ken Jeong’s status as a former doctor also gets some ribbing, all thanks to some mail fraud by McHale. Although is it really traditional mail fraud if you just emailed yourself to approve your jokes about your doctor friend abusing his position to aid in your Ambien abuse? I don’t think it would hold up in court.
Lansbury gets it the worst, though. Not only does McHale include an entire chapter called “Eat A D*ck, Angela Lansbury,” but he also manages to cross Conan’s invisible line by returning to joke at the end of the interview. She knows what she did.
