10 Hilarious YouTube Moments with Zach Galifianakis

Ever since seeing him steal the show in The Hangover – and realizing that he reminds me uncannily of MSF contributor Nick Gerlach – Zach Galifianakis has quickly become one of my favorite comedians.

How do I know that he is one of my favorites? Well after laughing earlier tonight while Galifianakis and Kristen Wiig somehow made an otherwise pedestrian skit about bedets funny, I thought to myself, “you know what? I would probably laugh hysterically just watching Zach Galifianakis read the phone book.”

And ultimately, that is the standard by which all comedians should be measured. Because if someone can make you laugh while reading the phone book, you might be a tool, but they are definitely hilarious.

best zach galifianakis videosSo, despite the fact that we are supposed to be a “sports blog”, I am taking some time on a quiet Saturday evening to enjoy some of the funniest YouTube videos featuring Zach Galifianakis and share them with you.

Hopefully you find them all as uproariously hilarious as I do. If not, you are no longer welcome at Midwest Sports Fans.

All joking aside, if you watched tonight’s Saturday Night Live, you’ll realize that Galifianakis is still using many of the same jokes/themes that he was using as far back as 2001. And if you have a problem with that, and because of it have a problem with these videos, somehow not finding them funny, you are no longer welcome at Midwest Sports Fans.

Without further ado, here are 10 great YouTube moments featuring Zach Galifianakis…in no particular order…

Zach Galifianakis YouTube Video #1: Zach Galifianakis on Physical Comedy

Zach Galifianakis YouTube Video #’s 2 & 3: Zach Galfianakis Gets Hilariously Pissed (Very NSFW)

Description from YouTube: When Zach came to Univ. of South Carolina some idiot started drunk-talking…was it a plant?? that’s up for debate. But here is how it started. Sorry for the beginning quality, I had to hide my camera.

Description from YouTube: Zach already hates the drunk girl. Then her fucking cell phone goes off! And Zach goes Hulk on her ass! We love you Zach!

Zach Galifianakis YouTube Video #4: Zach Galifianakis Singing in a Dress

Zach Galifianakis YouTube Video #5: Zach Galifianakis Plays the Piano & Tells Jokes on Conan

Best line: “You know what I realized the other day? You cannot fax acid.”

For the record, I think this one may be favorite of them all. Must be something about the synergy of Conan and Galifianakis.

Zach Galifianakis YouTube Video #6: Zach’s Interpretation “Under Pressure” by David Bowie

The first thing you’ll notice about this is that Galifianakis has no beard. For the record, I don’t like it…and I bet everyone will agree. Everything he does and says is 10X funnier when he has a beard.

That being said, this is still hilarious.

The second thing that you’ll think is, “Whoa? Galifianakis had a TV show?” Apparently so. I feel so deprived a) that I didn’t know this; and, b) that I don’t have the box set. KVB, I blame you for this. You are my go-to guy for Galifianakis stuff. You’ve failed me. You’ve failed us all…hippie.

Zach Galifianakis YouTube Video #’s 7, 8, & 9: A Vodka Movie by Zach, Tim, and Eric

Background: Zach Galifianakis, Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim were commissioned by Absolut Vodka to make a film for their website. They were told they could do anything they wanted as long as they mentioned the product.

And just so you come away from this post with an annoyingly poignant song stuck in your head, there’s this:

If you think that I left out some must-see moments (and I’m sure I did) please post links in the comment section. That’s what it’s there for.

And for the record, I was kidding above about the “not welcome at Midwest Sports Fans” stuff. You laughed, so you’re welcome here any time.

  1. I first saw him in the movie 'Out Cold' and have tried to watch everything he has done since then.
    I was amazed when The Hangover came out and so few people knew about him.

    I am proud to say I've been a Galifianakis fan for about seven years now.
    That has to count for something right?

  2. Short but wonderful clip of Zach on people who love the Garfield movies a little too much:

  3. Between Two Ferns didn't even get a mention. What?


  4. Wm Blackstone says:

    Glad to hear I am no longer welcome here. I don't find this guy funny in any way.

    • You're always welcome…don't take me so seriously. I just don't understand how people don't find him funny. Even if you don't him clever (which I do), the goofiness factor is huge. We can agree to disagree though, no worries. Thanks for the visit and comment.

  5. funnier than all of these: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N2bCc0EGP6U

  6. I have watched these videos.i must say they're really very funny. zach galifianakis is a great comedian.it's fun to watch him.Thanks for sharing these..

  7. GrimeyAggie says:

    What about the wolfpack scene from the Hangover? Or baby Carlos? I consider that to be funnier than the three best friends song.

  8. You need some Seth Galifianakis, "Rude to Do at A Funeral" is short, but hilarious, as is "Guy Who Talks About Garfield the Movie" from Comedians of Comedy.
