Zach Galifianakis returns to SNL to host for a second time this Saturday, and we got a little sneak peek at what’s to come from cast members Taran Killam and Fred Armisen. The guys were pretty tight-lipped, but we did catch Zach rehearsing for a talk show type sketch. Killam said it’s not quite “Between Two Ferns,” but close:
“There is a talk show in there now that is similar in vibe, but no ferns are involved,” Taran told us, adding “We couldn’t license the ferns. They’re far too expensive.”
Fred Armisen told us that it’s been a fun week behind the scenes working with Galifianakis. “He’s a friend of the show, and we always have a really great time with him,” he said.
Watch our video below to hear about this weekend’s episode, plus Taran says what he’s looking forward to most when Kristen Wiig returns to host next weekend!
Tune in to SNL at 11:30/10:30c to see Zach Galifinakis host with musical guest Of Monsters And Men.
