The hilarious ‘Between Two Ferns’ is back after two years with Jerry Seinfeld and Cardi B

Comedian Zach Galifianakis is back with his cringe-inducing online chat show - and it’s as good as ever

Zach Galifianakis’ Between Two Ferns is one of those webisode series that is actually really, really funny. Inspired by the excruciating awkwardness of The Office, the Funny or Die show consistently takes the piss out of its guests better than anyone else.

Since the show started in 2008, we’ve seen Natalie Portman, Justin Bieber, Brad Pitt and even President Barack Obama sit down for a chat with the comic and face a good-and-proper roasting.

This time, it’s sitcom legend Jerry Seinfeld who’s taking his turn in the hot seat.

“It seems like everyone from the Seinfeld cast went on to do great, wonderful stuff,” says Galifianakis. “It’s been a real launching pad for whites.”

The host then compares Seinfeld’s Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee to James Corden’s Carpool Karaoke. “What’s next in lazy car-based noncomedy?” 

Then prepare for a whistle-stop cameo from rapper Cardi B. “We have a better guest… we have another guest,” Galifianakis announces.

“You are special. But the most important thing is that you’re relevant,” he tells her… right in front of 90s star Jerry Seinfeld.
