Zach Galifianakis "dreamed of becoming a star. But when Will Ferrell discovered his public access TV show Between Two Ferns and uploaded it to Funny Or Die, Zach became a viral laughing stock. Now Zach and his crew are taking a road trip to complete a series of high-profile celebrity interviews and restore his reputation."

Looking forward to this.

That's basically just The Campaign again, isn't it?


(I like Galifianakis, but can't fucking stand Ferrell)

Ah Damn. I was hoping Scotty Aukerman would be taking the Will Ferrell role. Well at least he is still co-writing and directing. Suppose I can't give out that my avatar is in it either.

All of Between Two Ferns has been hilarious so I have no doubts about this. This is where Galifianakis truly shines. I’d like a Netflix stand-up special from him too, thanks.

This isn’t the first extended Between Two Ferns thing they’ve done. A few years ago there was a special on Comedy Central called “Between Two Ferns: A Fairytale of New York” where he interviewed Richard Branson, Tina Fey and Jon Stewart. I can’t find the full thing online anymore, but the fake blooper reel at the end still exists https://youtu.be/M7dIMOFmOEA

In what way?

Seems like one of the few ongoing viral web shows that never lost sight of itself.

Same. It was good when it was slapdash and they probably thought it wouldn't catch on. Then it became a success and they fucked it.

I remember there being a lot of fuss about the Obama one at the time, understandably so, but I agree with hampipers and Zach and the Auks have earned more than enough faith. That said, I can’t help but feel a bit cautious about this too.

There really isn’t any point to this post

Trailer isn't great (Netflix really need to fucking sort out their comedy trailers), but it will be good.

Started feeling hopeful about this, but the gag in the diner made me wince. Ironic perhaps, but it's hard to tell. This is a very incongruous thing to do with something that relies on seeming shittily made on Youtube.

Maybe some parallels to be drawn with Jiminy Glick in Lalawood?  Not much good as a film, but plenty of funny bits.

This is out now. Thought it was funny, very silly. Avoid the trailer and just watch it. Lauren Lapkus shines.

I enjoyed it a lot. Some great lines, some stupid nonsense, just what was expected. The outtakes at the end were a nice wee treat.

Is Will Ferrell in it much?  Cos that's a bit of a deal breaker for me.

At the very start/end from what I can remember. The rest is a kind of dumb road movie.
