Zach Galifianakis

Zach Galifianakis has had an impressive comedy career for years now, although his appearance in The Hangover has brought his genius to the public consciousness. Before The Hangover he was best recognized from Comedians of Comedy, Dog Bites Man, Reno 911, and to a select few Tru Calling. If you love his stand-up check out Zach Galifianakis: Live at the Purple Onion, and if you like him awkwardly bantering with famous people check out Between Two Ferns.
