SNL: Zach Galifianakis Kills With His Opening Monologue


Some SNL hosts just feel like they were born to be on that stage and Zach Galifiankis is one of them. Rather than do a traditional monologue, he performed six minutes of his oddball, avant garde stand-up comedy. It was a great reminder that he may be a big movie star now, but he’s still one of the great modern comedians.

After telling the audience to not get their hopes up, Galifianakis segues from introductions to comedy. In his typical style, he tells short little stories with random conclusions, tells jokes with set-ups but no punchlines and casually (and somehow, innocently) makes a few jokes at the expense of blind and deaf people. Then he sits behind his piano and the real fun begins.

People who only know him from the ‘Hangover’ films may not know what to make of this performance, but this is classic Galifiankis. This is what he was doing for years before making it big. The fact that SNL let him do it in front of what was probably his biggest audience ever is kind of amazing.
