Featured Video

In these extremely challenging times, we’re all feeling a little helpless and restless. Often to cheer our minds up we need comedy. And who does it better than Zach Galifianakis. Let’s all admit it, Zach Galifianakis is hilarious. And while he’s just generally funny, he’s also known for the countless punchlines in every comedy flick he’s lent his talent to. He’s not often the leading guy, but it’s because all fans need are his side quips and jokes.


In Zach’s parody public-access show “Between Two Ferns” the actor becomes the most awkward interviewer imaginable.
