Must Watch: Galifianakis' Between Two Ferns with Sean Penn
What's that? You've never heard of "Between Two Ferns" with Zach Galifianakis? Well, then you're missing out on some seriously hilarious stuff. Over at Funny or Die, an uninformed, idiotic version of Zach Galifianakis has been hosting a public access style talk show with some of the hottest names in Hollywood. Sitting quite literally between two ferns, the comedian asks whatever questions pop into his head complete with random stories, tangents and inappropriate comments. This edition has Sean Penn as his guest, but with Zach out of town, his effeminate Southern raised twin brother Seth is hosting and it's amazing to see.
Penn is very much playing it straight here and the hardest thing he has to do is not laugh, but it's hilarious to have such a serious, opinionated and sometimes overbearing actor having fun like this. Penn hasn't done comedy in over a decade, and even though he's not being silly here, I'd love to see him take on more comedic roles in the future. Things get a little heated since Seth is even less informed than Zach when it comes to his guests, and he just doesn't know when to shut up. If you've got the time, be sure to check out other episodes of "Between Two Ferns "which include Michael Cera, Jon Hamm, Natalie Portman and many more. Enjoy!
