LOS ANGELES ( – “Community” stars Chevy Chase and Joel McHale buried the hatchet – and not in each others’ backs – on their recent public feud when the two appeared together as presenters at Comedy Central’s second annual Comedy Awards on Saturday.

Chase and McHale were among the presenters for the Comedy Awards’ competitive categories. The two hugged and kissed and made reference to the public war of words that unfolded among “Community” creator Dan Harmon, Chase and McHale after Harmon played in public a voicemail message Chase had left him, ranting about the show, Harmon and Chase’s co-stars.

“What an absolute joy it is to work alongside a comic legend, and I know all those pratfalls are because of an inoperable tumor,” McHale joked during the duo’s onstage patter, the New York Post reports. Chase quipped that McHale is “a brilliant actor, who has a horrible eating disorder.”
