Zach Galifianakis’ ‘Between Two Ferns’ Will Get Awkward on TV

Between two ferns
Funny or Die

Zach Galifianakis has been making celebrity guests feel really awkward on the Funny or Die interview series ‘Between Two Ferns’ since January of 2008, when he took on Michael Cera.

It’s been a huge hit on the Web, with the sporadic episodes averaging over 6 million views a pop. Now the talk show which actually does take place between two ferns is coming to Comedy Central.

A half-hour episode of ‘Between Two Ferns’ will air on the cable network May 6th where Zach’s guests/victims will be Tina Fey, Jon Stewart and Virgin Atlantic owner Richard Branson. (Although there is some speculation that Branson will be played by an impersonator.)

What makes the show show so entertaining is that Galifianakis and his famous guests don’t discuss anything they are going to talk about beforehand. So when Galifianakis asks his question — which are usually inappropriate or non-sequiturs or both — the guest is just as surprised as the viewer.

It is not known if ‘Ferns’ will become a regular feature on Comedy Central or if it will just be a one-off special. Check out below Galifianakis’ unique brand of interview humor in some classic episodes from the web series.
