Between Two Ferns with Zach Galifianakis is an internet comedy series that appears on the video website Funny or Die. As the show's title suggests, host Zach Galifianakis conducts celebrity interviews sitting, with his guests, between two potted ferns: the set intentionally resembles a low-budget amateur production fit for public-access television. He maintains an awkward and often antagonistic demeanor with his guests, asking them bizarre and inappropriate questions mixed with offhand non-sequiturs. Episodes often include a segment in which Galifianakis awkwardly interrupts his guests to promote a sponsor's product--examples include bananas, Need for Speed: Shift videogame, and Speed Stick deodorant. The series' theme music is Dave Blume's arrangement of Bernard Herrmann's Theme from Taxi Driver, which is on the original Taxi Driver soundtrack album but was not included in the film.
Late World with Zach was a television show on VH1 during the spring of 2002, starring Zach Galifianakis who appeared without his now-trademark beard for most of the show's run. Late World's theme song was Frank Black's "Los Angeles", a nod to the studio's location. The show began with a monologue, like many late night talk shows, but with Galifianakis' unique style, usually involving a piano and non-sequiturs interlaced with topical humor. After this, one or two skits starring Zach followed. One of the running skits was footage of red carpet interviews, edited later with Zach asking humorously different questions. Last, Zach met with a guest like Mathew St. Patrick, Bradley Cooper or had a musical guest, Rhett Miller. The show was canceled after nine weeks of production due to poor ratings. The series is not currently slated for DVD release. A then-unknown Kevin Federline had a small, non-speaking role in one of the show's last episodes.
