Sloppy set pulls some genuine laughs
16 March 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Zach Galifianakis's first feature-length special, following the "Look Who It Isn't" compilation. Features one of his stand-up sets with footage of Zach on the road and an interview with "Zach's twin brother" interspersed. His material consists of one liners, wordplay, crowd work and general weirdness. Zach style has a relaxed, natural feel, but at times comes off more sloppy and unprepared. Fortunately, Galifianakis is downright lovable and his ad-Ibs tend to be dynamite, so that does buy him a little slack. His innovation in how he presents his material can be better than the material itself, though he does have some solid laughs on here. Starts slow, but has a killer finish.
