Between Two Ferns with Zach Galifianakis: Jimmy Kimmel from Between Two Ferns, Comedy Deathray, Zach Galifianakis, Jimmy Kimmel, and BJPorter.

If you have ever seen “The Hangover” or the HBO TV series “Bored to Death”, you are already very familiar with Zach Galifianakis. He has created an eccentric chat-show for http://www.funnyordie.com called “Between Two Ferns”

In this short he is interviewing American TV show host Jimmy Kimmel from “Jimmy Kimmel Live”. In his early 30’s, he was diagnosed with a mild form of narcolepsy. Today, he takes 1 tablet of Provigil – a day.

“You know how when you’re regular tired, your whole body is tired? With narcolepsy, just the inside of your head is tired. It’s like somebody’s gently sitting on your brain. You have almost no focus. All you’re thinking about is not falling asleep,” he told  “Esquire.” in 2003.
