Brad Pitt Upstaged on Zach Galifianakis’ ‘Between Two Ferns’


The man living in Angelina Jolie’s shadow — also known as Brad Pitt — sat down for an interview on the web series “Between Two Ferns with Zach Galifianakis.” As is the show’s style, the interview didn’t shy away from awkward moments and covered everything from Pitt’s love of “Friends” to the quality of his acting and his new film, “Furry.” No, hang on, “Fury.”

Special guest Louis C.K. also takes the stage to liven things up when Pitt bores Galifianakis with his charity work to perform a lively stand up routine on rats and Ebola.

This is Galifianakis’ first “Between Two Ferns” episode since his sitdown with President Barack Obama in March — a segment that garnered the show an Emmy in the short form live action entertainment category.

    lol at the ross and rachel comment, surprised brad pitt was fine with having that in the skit

    Brad Pitt probably wrote most of that himself. He’s fairly anti-self-aggrandizing.

      What a shame the ‘skit’ wasn’t funny. Even the stand-up guy who interrupted Pitt talking about his charity work didn’t actually have a joke. Not quite sure who Mr Galifianakis is emulating but he should seriously stick to his day job – which he’s great at. ‘Comedy’ chat shows should be left to people with wit and funny scripts. I hope he didn’t write this stuff….this was just embarrassing. You have to be smart and quick-witted to make ‘rude’ or ‘forward’ questioning work in a chat show. this just made him look shallow and brad Pitt incredibly patient putting up with it…Shared gum making an Emmy award winning hit? I hope not….

        Saskia have you ever actually watched any other ‘Between Two Ferns’ before? The whole point of the show is to make an intentionally awkward interview that both parties know about prior to filming. Its satirical, and as for the “stand-up guy” was Louis CK who is a very successful comedian who for the purposes of this show was intentionally being awkward and not funny.
