IT'S KIND OF A FUNNY STORY
After failing his last college course by one point at North Carolina State
University, ZACH GALIFIANAKIS (Bobby) moved to New York City.
Mr. Galifianakis got his start performing his brand of humor in the back
of a hamburger joint in Times Square, graduating to doing stand-up at
night around the city. While working as a bus boy in Los Angeles he
got his first acting job, on the television series Boston Common. An
eclectic career has followed.
In 2009, he broke out across America and the world with his
performance in Todd Phillips' blockbuster hit The Hangover, receiving
nominations for two MTV Movie Awards and being honored with the
ShoWest Comedy Star of the Year Award. Mr. Galifianakis is teaming
again with the director on the soon-to-be-released Due Date, as well
as the soon-to-be-filmed The Hangover 2.

Air; Jay Roach's Dinner for Schmucks; Miguel Arteta's Youth in Revolt;
Hoyt Yeatman's G-Force, produced by Jerry Bruckheimer; Tom
