The Making of Zach G.

Epic article on comedian Zach Galifianakis in the New York Times. My favorite quotes:

"As often happens, however — especially to ambitious young men in their 20s — his true vocation found him in spite of himself. And it found him by way of a girl."


“This tractor is painfully slow, but whenever you let your guard down, it screws you,” Galifianakis yelled over the whine of the engine. “My comedy is like that. You can put that in your article, if you want.” He was dressed like a gentleman farmer, in boots and a herringbone blazer, but his enthusiasm made him seem like a 12-year-old boy."
