Between Two Ferns with Zack Galifianakis coming to Comedy Central

3 years agoby:

Fans of Zack Galifianakis' Funny or Die bit Between Two Ferns are in for a real treat. Scott Aukerman, who directed most episodes of the "show" for Funny or Die, announced on his "Comedy Bang Bang" podcast that Comedy Central will air a Between Two Ferns special on May 6 before the Comedy Awards, entitled Between Two Ferns: A Fairytale of New York.†

The half-hour show will feature Zack Galifianakis interviewing guests Tina Fey, Jon Stewart, and Richard Branson in his typical style of the show, which basically is an exercise in hilarious awkwardness.† Past episodes have included guests like Ben Stiller, Bruce Willis, Natalie Portman, Jon Hamm, and a bevy of other A-list stars.†

I discovered this web series a while back and it has me rolling every time.† It's kind of a perfect venue for Galifianakis' comedic voice.† If you've never seen it, don't worry: I've got a few "best-of's" embedded below for your enjoyment.†

Extra Tidbit: Who would you like to see Zack interview on Between Two Ferns? I'd like to see Tom Hanks, Meryl Streep, Clint Eastwood, and Al Pacino, just to name a few.

I'm sure most people would want to see Mel Gibson on BTF.

Bruce Willis

Hysterical, Bruce Willis is always fun to watch acting uncomfortable and pissed.

I was watching this thinking to myself 'Boy I just don't find this funny' and then out of nowhere: "When you were making The Whole Ten Yards were you ever worried it would be too good?"

Not sure about this

The great thing about these skits is that they are 4-5 minutes long, and there would be a period of months between their release, which made them that more enjoyable.
A half-hour of this on a weekly basis is only going to desensitize those that love the show for what it is, and it's going to get old quick. Not saying I won't watch, I just hope it can sustain it's freshness week-after-week.

Seems like it will just be a one off and not an ongoing series

love him but....

I just canít get into these "fake" interviews I know they arenít serious and the actors know what its like, so they are in on it. So I just canít laugh at something I know is fake for all involved, it would be funnier if he was acting as some character like Ali G, which still had the same problem of you know he will say absurd things so you become desensitized to it

The Steve Carrell episode kills me. He comes in pissed off and ready to fight, Galifinakis makes him feel bad for his hostility and then parlays it into abusing Carrell some more. Classic.
