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.

This DVD sh** is his ticket out! Aug 16, 2007
By Danny O.
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.
I like: Mitch Hedberg, Dave Attell, Jim Gaffigan
I dislike: Carlos Mencia

Simply AMAZING! Mar 18, 2007
By Justin Sluss
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.

You May Become A Galifanatic Mar 11, 2007
By J. Hobbs
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.

Unique. Feb 17, 2011
By eli see
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!

Zach is the best comedian in the game today. His awkward style of delivery is a thing of beauty.
