He’s the President of the United States! Of course you’re going to get nervous meeting him!
Even if you’re Zach Galifianakis!
The Between Two Ferns host welcomed President Barack Obama onto his Funny or Die web series earlier this week and the result was one of the most legendary interviews we’ve ever seen!
But don’t let Zach’s cutting character routine fool you! He may have been going back and forth with the playful insults for the Prez but off-camera, he was sweating bullets!
President Obama called into Ryan Seacrest’s radio show today and spilled on just how nervous Zach got during their sit down!
The President doing The Tonight Show is one thing. And when we're talking Barack Obama, even slow-jamming the news with Jimmy Fallon seems reasonable.
But going on Zach Galifianakis' darkly comic Funny Or Die talk show spoof Between Two Ferns?!
Sure, the show has had celebs ranging from Charlize Theron to Justin Bieber, but the President? What kind of crazy free world is he the leader of??
The show's co-creator Scott Aukerman, whom you might know as the host of IFC's Comedy Bang! Bang!, says it was the White House that first reached out to comedy filmmakers to try to get the word out on the Affordable Care Act. He says:

There aren't a whole lotta laughs happening on FOX News. So it’s no surprise they can’t take a joke and didn’t find President Barack Obama’s interview with Zach Galifianakis on Between Two Ferns at all funny!
K, well, whatever guys. It was hilarious!
Papa Bear Bill O’Reilly was growling on his show last night about how inappropriate it was for the Prez to use a comedy routine to promote HealthCare.gov.
Bill sounded off, saying:
Yes we can…watch this video on repeat for an entire term of office! It's hysterical!
President Obama appeared on Between Two Ferns with Zach Galifianakis, and it is the funniest Presidential interview since John Quincy Adams did that wildly improper impersonation of Andrew Jackson at the State of the Union in 1826!
Just kidding about the John Quincy Adams part (that never happened….ever), but this video will have you in stitches, which thanks to the Affordable Care Act, are easier to get!
Ch-ch-check out the Presidential HIGHlarity…AFTER THE JUMP!!!

Behold the melding of two of the greatest minds in comedy today!
Zach Galifianakis and Louis C.K. are teaming up on a new television pilot for FX!
Hear that? That’s the entire world collectively LOL-ing already!
The script that the two co-wrote together will be the first production under C.K.’s new deal with FX. We hear that only Zach is set to star in the production though, which makes sense considering Louis already has his own FX show.
There’s no name and no summary yet for what the show will be about.
But, we repeat: Zach Galifianakis and Louis C.K. are making a comedy show. Together.
We’d be shocked if this wasn’t funny enough for FX to eventually pick it up to series.
Good luck boys! We hope you’re making us laugh (yet again) very soon!
Maybe you’ve seen this show. Maybe you haven’t. But we promise you, Perezcious readers: the new promo for Comedy Central’s Kroll Show is going to make you giggle times a million!!!
Comedian Nick Kroll is back with a second season of his sketch series and he’s bringing some major stars with him!
Including Katy Perry!
Sure, she’s only in this teaser trailer for a hot second but the fact that she’s going to be on the show just makes our lives! Because KatyKat can SO do comedy!
And look who else is doing a guest appearance! Why it’s Nick’s girlfriend Amy Poehler!
Amy knows a thing or two about nailing sketch characters. She did once star on a little program called Saturday Night Live!
Keep your eyes peeled for other celebs who are set to dress up this season, including Seth Rogen, Zach Galifianakis, Lizzy Caplan, Will Forte, Laura Dern, Craig Robinson, Bill Burr, Jenny Slate, and John Mulaney!
Watch the promo (below)!

What a perfect godfather!
Leonardo DiCaprio is a man of many
women talents, (like doing his own sex scenes in the The Wolf Of Wall Street) and one of them is taking care of kids!
The 39-year-old star caught up with his pal Tobey Maguire, who was most recently seen in Zach Galifianakis' Between Two Ferns, and his family for lunch at Fred Segal's in WeHo on Sunday in El Lay.
But, when the Tobester stepped away for a minute to go get the car, Uncle Leo handled the kids like a true champ!
Since he’s 7-year-old Ruby’s godfather, she had no issue with taking instructions from Leo, but 4-year-old Otis needed an extra hand to the exit.
Eventually they all made it safely to the car though!
Makes us wonder if Leonardo is thinking of having a little bundle of joy for himself one day… Clearly, he's got the chops!
