Product Description

Zach Galifianakis started his so-called career in back of a hamburger joint in New York. Well-known and loved by the Comedy Central crowd, he is one of the Comedians of Comedy, played director Alan Finger in the series Dog Bites Man and wowed the critics with his acclaimed VH1 show, Late World With Zach. A master of the one-liner, rivaling Steven Wright, with an absurd rambling style reminiscent of Andy Kaufman, Zach s sharp, resonating humor makes his show at the famed Purple Onion in San Francisco one of the funniest performances in recent comedy. Off-stage, you will meet Seth Galifianakis, Zach s twin brother. In an emotional interview with Brian Unger, he sheds some light on his brother Zach, revealing how he came to be who he is today.


Bonus Features:

* The Awkward Slapping Bit (outtake)

* Zach Shaves

* Outtakes From Brian Unger s Interview With Seth Galifianakis

* Behind-the-scenes footage and outtakes

Amazon.com

Zach Galifianakis' stand-up comedy DVD spoofs the classic recorded stand-up performance film format by interjecting road trip footage of Zach and buddy in their red VW bus, and fake interviews with Zach's fake brother, "Seth," between his live stage bits. The splintered, slackerish feel that this editing lends the film reinforces Galifianakis's cool, enigmatic stage presence. Galifianakis' self-deprecating, sensitive guy-persona suits his love of deadpan one-liners in the tradition of Steven Wright. Sketches of the forgetful vegan who accidentally eats meat, or the pretentious illiterate who indignantly proclaims that he can't read, satirically poke fun at the self-righteous. Cut to a shot of the comedian's bus broken down off the freeway, then back to stage, where Zach riffs on his failed efforts to barter jokes for a fixed vehicle. Some segments, such as when Seth confesses his brother's affinity for making homemade ecstasy, are funnier than the Purple Onion performance. Like those on the Chappelle Show, these pre-taped skits rescue slow moments and elevate the stage act into more heavily crafted commentary. Graced with a dry wit, Zach Galifianakis, the self-professed "man who is bored by everything," won't bore lovers of good sarcasm. --Trinie Dalton

Customer Reviews

It seems like he is trying too hard.
Daniel Deeney
He just doesn't have his act together and in desperation to kill time (yes that's how it feels) he comes up with really boring and not funny stupid stuff.
David Hofmann
I like Zach in movies, but this standup wasn't very funny to me.
Bob G

Zach Galifiankis is the truth.

His style of comedy isn't stand-up comedy, it's entertainment. Zach Galifiankis is one of very few comedians who can entertain you in ways funnier than 99% of the stand-behind-the-mic for 30 minutes on a Comedy Central special comedians. I'm not knocking those comics, some are very funny, but Zach's not a "Hey, my girlfriend is so different from me because.." kind of guy. He puts on a great show, and it's rare to find someone with the ability to take you on a ride like this because it's not the cookie-cutter comedy that TV networks throw sitcoms at.

His brother, Seth Galifiankis, is also hilarious here. Interview segments with NPR's Brian Unger (I know, what!?) are nothing less than brilliant, who else but Zach and Seth could pull the whole thing off? The outtakes and deleted scenes are a must, they're not just extra content to fill up the disc. Replay value on both the main feature and the extras is very high.

Buy two, because if you're like me, you'll immediately want to give this as a gift to let others experience it. For $12.99, you shouldn't think twice about buying this.

Great comedian, Great performance and presentation almost like a movie at times. Love his alter-ego fake brother Seth, he cracks me, my friends, interviewer Brian Unger and I'm sure the rest of the world CRACK THE HELL up.

Zach Galifianakis (I hope I'm spelling that right) is hysterical... and kinda scary. However, he's scary in the best of ways. He is a train wreck, but a hilariously love-able, inventive train-wreck. The little skit he does about his "brother" in this is flawless. He's an amazing actor. I know people know him as the idiot, but he can actually play a fairly wide range of characters. For a second I was all like, "Wait, is this his actual brother?" Maybe I'm just retarded. Ha. Nonetheless, it's hilarious. The only downside is at times it seems he just kind of improvises, and it's still pretty funny, but it gets kinda repetitive and dull after awhile. However, the funny parts are REAALLLY funny (which is most of it!). Plus you get to see his real side, which is still pretty funny. And it shows that he's kind of a normal person (kind of), which just shows how talented he really is. I mean, I legitimately believed he was a bipolar / unstable / schizophrenic drunk at times. Then again, maybe I'm just retarded. Anyways, I highly recommend this. Plus, Amazon always has the best deals. So buy!

I read a lot of reviews on here before I bought this DVD and it made me kind of nervous. A good portion of the negative reviews (and even some positive reviews) said steer clear of this DVD if you liked the "dumbed-down Comedy Central Zach", but I didn't find this to be the case. I couldn't stop laughing through most of the DVD, so much so that I had to rewind it a few times because I was missing a few one-liners.

My only complaint is that I could have used more stand up, but it in no way detracts from the DVD as a whole. The extras were great (albeit short) and the cut scenes to random...Zachness...were all pretty hilarious.

Don't be frightened away by the "It's not for you Comedy Central Zach fans, It's only for us uber intellectual and gritty college types", the sh** is funny. It is however super inappropriate for certain age groups, so don't buy this for a family reunion or anything like that. Buy this DVD now...and you might want to do a few prep-crunches to get your abs ready for the oncoming juggernaut of laughter.

if you're a fan of zach galifianakis, then you know to expect his absurd one liners. if you haven't seen any live shows of his besides his comedy central special, then you may not be familiar with zach's hilarious habit of abandoning his routine and fully engaging the audience. both of these talents are on display in his first dvd. also are hilarious fake documentary footage of zach's "twin" brother seth. Those interviews and the behind the scenes footage are great, but sometimes can be jarring when inserted into the standup footage. that's why i gave this dvd 4 instead of 5 stars. it was done by the same people who made the comedians of comedy, which was awesome as well but suffered from the same problem. all in all though, the dvd is incredibly funny and definitely worth it if you're a fan of zach's. hopefully we'll get a zach stand-up cd soon also!

Slightly bitter, slightly depressed; but all in all, a great set from Zach. Some of the interstitial pieces don't work as well as you'd want, and he flubs a couple lines here and there, but either you love Zach's work or you don't.

This Zach Galifianakis DVD is one of my all time Comedy favorites! The first time I watched it I had to pause the DVD every 5 minutes to catch my breath 'cause I laughed so hard! I've watched it so many times since - and it still has me laughing! He is so brilliant... there's no one like him for timing and delivery... and his acting is superb... just check out the interviews with his brother Seth! I've bought this DVD for gifts and everyone I've given it to adores him now... You can't go wrong... Zach will never let you down!
