Between Two FernsZach Galifianakis is a master at turning awkwardness into hilarity. While Steve Carell and Ricky Gervais also possess that skill, the bearded comedian does it in his own unique way with supreme subtlety and silliness.

Even the networks have gotten in on the action, creating original content for their own websites.
