No, it’s not #TBT (that’s Throwback Thursday there boss), but this one is just too good to wait another 52 hours! Yesterday we brought you a Zach Galifianakis stand-up video gem from 1999, but today we are going to not only go back one whole year to 1998, but we’re going to add the legendary Ken Jeong – aka Mr. Chow – to the stage. Yes, you read that right: this is Alan and Mr. Chow 9 years before they would become absolute mega stars with the release of The Hangover. For the love of all that is funny, do not pass up this video. Please.
Raise your hand if you knew who Zach Galifianakis was before Y2K hit? Seriously, be honest now – did you? Most people remember or think of Zach’s first role from the highly underrated movie Out Cold, but that didn’t come out until 2001, when your’s truly was just a freshman in college. If you guessed The Hangover, well, you’re way off. Try 1999ish, folks. Crazy, right? Well what you’ll find above is the mega-star that is Zach Galifianakis doing stand-up way back in that very year, just before his meteoric rise began to take shape. The setting is Luna Park in West Hollywood, and I can’t think of a better or funnier way to kick off your Monday morning!
Get excited. The wolf pack returns to Las Vegas, and movie screens around the world on May 24th, 2013. Personally I thought the sequel was sub par, but I think everyone’s expectations were sky high after the epic intro. Legendary comedic director/writer Todd Phillips made the write choice by setting the trilogy’s conclusion back where where it should be: Sin City.
