Here’s the newest “Between Two Ferns with Zach Galifianakis,” featuring guest Ben Stiller. As usual, it’s chock full o’ awkward hilarity, and I can’t help but wonder why this wasn’t incorporated into Zach’s “Saturday Night Live” gig. “Hey Zach! That was an awesome monologue, would you mind writing another skit from your ouevre? We’re having some problems coming up with funny material. Again.” I think it’d be cool to see Zach put the awkward screws to an out-of-character Kristen Wiig, or maybe Seth Meyers or Jason Sudeikis. Or hell, anyone. Anything besides that kissing family.
But I’ve gotten off track. The point is, Ben Stiller has whored himself out for easy paychecks for years, and this is the funniest thing he’s done in a long time. Oh well. At least he gave us Jewlander.
