Zach Galifianakis Did NOT Smoke A Joint On Live TV

zach galifianakis did not moke real joint on live tv

It looks like Zach Galifianakis' joint-smoking stunt on HBO's Real Time With Bill Maher was more STUNT than it was JOINT.

Zach's appearance became a huge story because of his audacious move on live TV, but now it appears that it was a hoax.

Here's what Maher's publicist said about it:

"It was not an actual joint. It was a prop."

Here's what Maher said to CNN's Wolf Blitzer about Zach's appearance:

"If it was a real joint, Wolf, I would have smoked it…I think it was cloves or something. Zach's crazy, [but] he's not that crazy."

It was still a funny bit, but we're thinking there may be some stoners fans out there who may feel deceived.

What do U think? Do U care that Zach's joint was a prop?

    Complete and utter bullshit, my friend was at the taping, it was real.

  2. 2

    Just ’cause the publicist says it, don't make it the truth. Frankly, if a publicist says it, it's probably a big, fat lie. And at the end of the day, who cares? ZG was simply trying to make a point and I think he made it. Total non-event getting entirely too much attention. Welcome to the news.

    Oh, for the love of God. Did anybody actually BELIEVE it was real? Do you really think ANY studio would take a chance on the fines etc…. that would come with not taking appropriate "legal" action? Only a true idiot would believe he left that studio lot after smoking a real joint on camera. Sheesh.

    As someone who has smoked for 20+ years and have seen those exact expressions when I've lit up…people…that WAS A REAL JOINT!

  6. 6

    well either way he should of been whatever it coulda been a splif who cares light it up it would of been better than "clovers" if that four leef ones but i doubt it. lets all jus get a bong

    if it wasnt real, it would be a huge letdown!!

  8. 8

    Actually…I think it was real. I think they are just trying to save face now since the act was already committed. If they admit the truth, they could open themselves up to fines, etc.

    That was obvious..It also seemed to me that Zach was very uncomfortable with any small remark that slammed conservative people. I believe he is more conservative than most….
    He made a small point of the fact that he lived close to conservative people and they were very nice. He didn't elaborate much, but enough.

    Whether it was real or not, why would people even be watching that are not Pro-Weed when they know that Maher is???
    Get over people! An occasional joint never hurt anyone like alcohol does.

  12. 12

    Yeah.. pretty sure it was real. The lady in the red coat looked shocked when they were passing it around smelling it. Unless she's a moron and can't tell the difference between cloves and weed.

  13. 13

    Pretty sure that pot isn't legalized for the masses yet…and I do believe they can't get away with doing illegal stuff on television. So if it was real then they are going to be in trouble, and will definitely have fines to pay.

  14. 14

    riiiiiight. it was a fake joint that spelled like cloves? hahahaha.

  15. 15

    aawww, that's so cute they thought we'd believe it was a clove cig. you know zach, bill and the middle eastern ajax dude burned after the show.

  16. 16

    Hmmm. If it wasn't real it should have been! I can't believe that weed gets such a bad rep when alcohol is one of the worst things going. When the world cup was held in Holland it was the most peaceful world cup ever. There's not many violent and dangerous stoners out there…it's the drunks you need to watch!

    Perez.. come on don't be so gullible. This is called back tracking.

    I watched the show twice. Yes, I believe it was the real deal. Bill got called out and made to look like a douche on his own show. He talks all day, but when confronted with something he talks about he froze up. I think that it is so typical that they are saying it was fake….and I don't even have to guess why. Plus, Bill's statement really makes me believe that it was real. Oh, and after the show when the credits are rolling Bill asks Zach if it was real and he says yes. (Well, you have to read their lips).

  19. 19

    this guy is as douchey as his last name

  20. 20

    Oh come on. It was real. But they can't admit that. Oh wait - it's cable. Maybe they can! Hahahaha. I know on broadcast television they can't even drink real wine or beer - it's all grape juice or fizzy apple juice. But on cable . . . break out the weed! Woot! That was a great show. Love Bill Maher.
