It was 2002 and comedian Zach Galifianakis had a short lived late night talk show on VH1 called ‘Late World with Zach’. After being told that his show was about to be cancelled, Zach had nothing to lose and decided to just fool around a bit in the show.
In this episode, Zach had actor (and friend) Bradley Cooper as the guest. They decided to make a not-so-serious interview – complete with random inner monologues – that mocks these type of celebrity interviews.
Zach expanded this concept of celebrities mock interview in his online hit series, ‘Between Two Ferns’. He later gained mainstream stardom when he reunited with Bradley Cooper in ‘The Hangover’
