Zach Galifianakis is the epitome of stand up black comedy enthusiastically delivering his deadpan self-deprecating dialogue with aplomb that takes you to the edge of surreal nervousness where you sit uncomfortably yet laughing hysterically at the same time. This was the insane line of comedy he walked for many years before his 2009 blockbuster hit The Hangover which elevated him to the A list of comedy icons. Behind the beard is a man of quick wits and intelligence who just happens to contemplate some of lifes more awkward moments in his acting persona. It is his unpredictability that keeps you on the edge of your seat, you never know what will come next from him and with those staring eyes he can easily slip into the most insane roles that Hollywood has to offer. With a caustic tongue and a sense of Machiavellian humour it is difficult to discern whether he is being serious or still in character so it made interesting research compiling my list of eight of the best Zach Galifianakis quotes.
