Zach Galifianakis Net Worth, Biography, Wiki 2017-2016

Zachary Knigh Galifianakis, commonly known as Zach Galifianakis, is a famous American actor, television and film producer, voice actor, as well as a stand-up comedian. To the public, Zach Galifianakis is perhaps best known for playing the role of Alan Garner in “The Hangover” movies. The first film in the series entitled “The Hangover” came out in 2009, and was a large commercial success. Upon its release, “The Hangover” managed to gross more than $467 million at the box office, thus maintaining a position among the top 10 highest-grossing films of the year. Galifianakis’ role brought him a nomination for the Houston Film Critics Society Award for Best Performance. The popularity of the first “The Hangover” movie inspired the release of the sequel called “The Hangover Part II”, in which Galifianakis reprised his role as Alan Garner. The second movie in the trilogy came out in 2011, yet it failed to gain favorable critical reviews. Despite the fact that most critics seemed displeased with the lack of a good plotline, “The Hangover Part II” managed to gross more than $586 million at the box office, which is over $100 million more than its predecessor. The last film in the series came out in 2013, under the title of “The Hangover Part III”, and featured Mike Epps, Heather Graham, and John Goodman in supporting roles. As with its predecessor, the third instalment failed to secure positive reviews, yet it still grossed over $362 million. Galifianakis’ appearances in the trilogy brought him a lot of public exposure and popularity.

A well-known actor, how rich is Zach Galifianakis? According to sources, Zach’s net worth is estimated to be $20 million, the majority of this wealth coming from his acting career.

Prior to his success with “The Hangover”, Galifianakis worked on numerous projects on television, including “Saturday Night Live”, Sean Penn’s “Into the Wild”, “Bubble Boy” with Jake Gyllenhaal, “Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job!”, and even hosted his own show entitled “Late World with Zach”, which aired on the VH1 network in 2002.

The show primarily consists of Galifianakis conducting interviews with various celebrities, among whom have been Michael Cera, Bruce Willis, Will Ferrell, Natalie Portman, Justin Bieber and many others.

#Quote
1[on January Jones] I was at a party, I'd never met her, and she was like, 'Come, sit down.' So I sit at her table and talk for ten minutes, and she goes, 'I think it's time for you to leave now.' So I say, 'January, you are an actress in a show and everybody's going to forget about you in a few years, so fucking be nice,' and I got up and left.
2[to Barack Obama in a mock interview, 2014] What is it like to be the last black president?
3It's embarrassing but I don't over-think things too much when I work. I think that may be evident to a lot of people.
4A good stand-up, you lead the audience. You don't kowtow to the audience. Sometimes the audience is wrong. I always think the audience is wrong.
5It's not good for comedy to be like, 'Thanks for liking me'. Being popular is poison. My mom and dad are like, 'You're not enjoying any of this'. I say, 'It's your fault for not raising me up to be superficial'.
6[Ryan] Gosling better watch his ass.
7I am going to be the next Ryan Gosling.
8(2009) Hollywood's built on insecurity. People are trying to prove things. And I probably have that. I probably do. Probably guilty of it, in a way.
9(2009, GQ Magazine) There's more to life than being an actor in a Hollywood movie. I'm not going to adapt my life after that existence, where a lot of people do. And they get the publicist, and they get all that stuff, and it becomes them. I think it's a stupid way to live your life. A really dumb way to live your life.
10(On his TV series Tru Calling (2003)) It was the dumbest show I'd ever seen. I remember calling the executive producer and saying, 'This show is terrible, doesn't make any sense, and it's insulting'. I tried to get fired. We'd do a table read, and as soon as we're done, I'd be the first one up, and I'd go, to the writer of the episode or whatever, 'Great script, Janet'. And I'd throw it in the trash can and walk out. Then I told the lead actress she was eating her way to cancellation. They thought it was me being Funny Stand-up Guy. But it was an incredibly happy time in my life, because I was biking everywhere. I was smoking so much pot, which was... You know, I was playing a doctor on TV, and I had to memorize all this medical jargon, and on, like, take 17-it was so unprofessional.
11[on the first movie he took a date to] - Eddie Murphy: Raw (1987). I know, a terrible thing to choose, but I wanted to see it. Eddie Murphy was wearing that fancy leather suit. But she became my high school sweetheart. She was four inches taller than me.
12[on the first R-rated movie he saw in a theater] - Hot Dog... The Movie (1984). I went with my friend but I told my mom I was gonna to go see Yentl (1983). She knew what we did. She picked us up at the theater afterwards and was like, "How was 'Yentl?'" She wanted a full report. I was like, "Well, you know mom, they're really not our people..."
13[on handling fame] - It's a little bit strange. But I'm 40 years old. If I were in my 20s, this whole thing would probably freak me out. Don't worry though, I'm sure I'll fuck this up somehow.
