Between Two Ferns with Zach Galifianakis, is one of the weirdest shows to ever exist, but I love it. As the show’s title obviously suggests, host Zach Galifianakis interviews celebrities while sitting between two potted ferns. This was done to give the aesthetic of a low-budget amateur production, they further garner this image by having on-screen graphics containing deliberate, hilarious and downright weird comedic errors.
What truly makes the show great is the way Galfianakis conducts his interviews, Galifianakis constantly maintains a very awkward andsomewhat aghressive demeanor with his guests. Throughout the interview he will constantly ask them bizarre, inappropriate or insulting questions or in the case of Bradley cooper he will even write Cooper a looser’s speech for the Oscars. Sadly every episode was only a few minutes long – though he had plenty of amazing guests such as Sean Penn, Conan O’Brien, Jennifer Lawrence and President Barack Obama to name but a few. It left us hungering for more, worry not because Netflix are giving it a movie.
The film will see Galifianakis take his show on the road as he tries to get it brought to a real network. Along the away he will have some very awkward encounters wth a lot of celebrities, including Matthew Mcconaughey, Will Ferrell, Peter Dinklage, Benedict Cumberbatch, Paul Rudd, Tiffany Haddish, Brie Larson, Keanu Reeves, Jon Hamm, David Letterman, Jason Schwartzman, Adam Scott, John Cho, Chance the Rapper, Rashida Jones, Hailee Steinfeld, John Legend, Chrissy Teigen and Tessa Thompson.
The trailer seems to have a lot of weird and a lot of funny, but it also seems to have some heart in it too and if it does this could a sleeper hit, one I am really looking forward too.
