‘Between Two Ferns’ is one of my favorite online video series, and I was wondering if there was ever going to be any new episodes.
The last episode released was in September, 2016, and that represented the first new episode since October 2014. In other words, there has only been one new episode in nearly four years.
Well that all changed yesterday with the debut of episode number 21, featuring Jerry Seinfeld and Cardi B. You can watch the episode down below.
If you’re not familiar with the show, here is a little background, from Wikipedia.
Between Two Ferns with Zach Galifianakis is a talk show hosted by comedian Zach Galifianakis which features celebrity guests. Episodes last several minutes, in which the interviewer (Galifianakis) and guests trade barbs and insults. Galifianakis interviews celebrities while sitting between two potted ferns. The set intentionally resembles a low-budget amateur production for public-access television, with on-screen graphics containing deliberate comedic errors. Galifianakis maintains a very awkward and often antagonistic demeanor with his guests, asking them bizarre, inappropriate or insulting questions mixed with offhand non-sequiturs. The guests’ responses are mostly improvised, despite pre-interviews. Episodes often include a segment in which Galifianakis awkwardly interrupts his guests to promote a sponsor’s product. Guests aren’t told what will happen in advance, according to Galifianakis, “They agree to come. There is no discussion beforehand…It just happens, no real prep, no organization whatsoever. Inappropriateness is really fun to me.”
There have been some classic episodes (in my opinion), and I’ve included them below. First, though, I’ll show the newest one with Seinfeld. I don’t think it was one of the best ones, but it’s good to see the show back, and I hope there will be more. Enjoy.
