No matter how much you dig Zach Galifianakis, you really can't appreciate his brand of humor without having seen at least one episode of "Between Two Ferns." In the latest "Ferns" episode, Bruce Willis gets cozy between the plants to promote "Red" (in theaters Friday), and is only slightly less awkward than previous guest Sean Penn.
There's a lot of Galifianakis talking in this one, and his deadpanned questions are probably the funniest he's had in any of Funny or Die web series. The best zinger? After asking Willis how many children he has ("three"), Galifianakis asks, "Which is your favorite? Ashton?"
It all leads up to an epic rant in which Willis talks about the high point of his career in the 1980s and inexplicably references to Anthropologie candles and women's painted toe nails clicking on Hollywood Boulevard. It's probably the most any guest has ever talked on the show... and is only overshadowed my the monumental fact that this episode marks the first time in the esteemed history of "Between Two Ferns" that the usually stone-faced Galifianakis actually breaks character and almost laughs. Now that's something worth seeing.
Are you a fan of "Between Two Ferns"? Do you think this is the funniest episode yet?
