The Hangover

Zacharius Knight "Zach" Galifianakis (born October 1, 1969) is an American comedian and actor, known for numerous film and television appearances including his own Comedy Central Presents special. He is known for his unconventional stand-up style, that features the reading of one-liners while playing a piano during his performances. While initially more of an "underground" and lesser-known comedian, he garnered considerable mainstream attention with his breakthrough role in the successful 2009 comedy The Hangover.Galifianakis (pronounced GAL-if-ə-NAK-iss) was born in Wilkesboro, North Carolina and attended Wilkes Central High School. His mother, Mary Frances, ran a community center for the arts, and his father, Harry Galifianakis, was an oil heating vendor who emigrated from Greece at the age of three. Galifianakis was raised in his father's Greek Orthodox faith. He has said that he is "not sure" on the subject of religion, mentioning "I think it's all mythology."




Galifianakis's cousin Nicholas Galifianakis is a newspaper cartoonist, and his uncle Nick Galifianakis is a former Democratic U.S. Congressman who lost a race for an open Senate seat in 1972 against Jesse Helms, launching Helms's career in the Senate. *Wikipedia*
