After the unforgettable bachelor party in Las Vegas, Stu is taking no chances and has opted for a safe, subdued pre-wedding brunch. Nonetheless, things don’t always go as planned. You know what they say… what happens in Vegas may stay in Vegas, but what happens in Bangkok can’t even be imagined!
Here is Zach G’s interview on the Conan O’Brien Show last Monday, May 16, 2011, while promoting Hangover II, and of course analyzing his confusing Greek last name.
He got his first acting job on the sitcom called “Boston Common” for NBC, while working as a bus boy. He has appreared on a number of late-night talk shows including the “David Letterman,” show, “Conan”, etc. His films include “Heartbreakers,” “Bubble Boy,” “Corky Ramano,” “Out Cold” and “The Comedians of Comedy.” He became a major box office draw for his Delta Award winning performance and dry humour in the “Hangover”.
Galifianakis lives in Venice Beach, California and also lives part-time on his farm in the mountains of North Carolina.
