Chevy Chase, 71, didn’t seem like himself during the 40th anniversary Saturday Night Live special on Feb. 15. The National Lampoon star and original SNL 1975 cast member was seen heavily sweating and turning red during a red carpet interview with Carson Daly — causing fans to wonder if the iconic funny man is ok.
Chevy Chase’s Health: Twitter Blows Up After ‘SNL’ 40th Anniversary Special
Something definitely seemed off about Chevy. The Community star grabbed everyone’s attention at the 40th anniversary special when he gave an extremely uncomfortable interview to Carson. In the short interview Chevy discussed his decision to leave the show after just one season and wiped his brow while apologizing for his noticeable sweat.
“I left after the first year because I thought this isn’t going anywhere… I liked [hosting]. I liked it. But I missed it more for not being a part of the cast because I left after one year, I had reasons to leave,” Chevy revealed. “I’m sorry if I’m perspiring, but I just had to run through a gauntlet. But I liked it a lot, and I still like it. I love Lorne. We’re like brothers now.”
Following his interview, plenty of fans expressed their concerns on Twitter over Chevy’s sweating, but also about his voice which had also noticeably changed.
Much as I dislike Chevy Chase, with cause, his weight/health is off-limits. None of us are going to age like we hope, so no cheap shots.

The 40th anniversary show was packed with plenty of huge stars like Alec Baldwin, Taylor Swift, Betty White and Miley Cyrus taking part in classic skits. As HollywoodLife.com previously reported, Mike Myers and Dana Carvey teamed up once again in “Wayne’s World” and were not afraid to thrown some disses at Kanye West.
In the hilarious skit, the boys counted down the top ten best things about having a live show, telling Kanye to “sit down” several times. Luckily, the artist went along with their jokes and even pretended to have to be held back by security — definitely a show to remember!
