Zach Galifianakis would rather interview Cardi B, the fastest rising woman of rap, than Jerry Seinfeld in the new episode of Between Two Ferns.
A year after he spoke to Hilary Clinton, the actor-comedian returns to Funny or Die to speak to one of the fixtures of 90s television this time around. However, it seems that Galifianakis would rather speak to someone who is famous in this era.
Zach Galifianakis Is A Fan Of Cardi B
The Season 1 Episode 20 of Between Two Ferns, posted on YouTube on Thursday, June 14, began with the 48-year-old whispering to someone offscreen, complaining about his guest who is seated right beside him.
"Get a Us Weekly or Teen People and find a legitimate guest," he scolded the unseen individual.
When the interview finally started, Galifianakis fired questions about Seinfeld's previous works including Seinfeld. At one point, Wayne Knight even came out for a short cameo, but he immediately left after taking his money from the rather annoyed host.
Seinfeld retaliated by commenting that The Hangover Part II and Part III were shameless cash grabs. This resulted in the host launching into a passionate tirade on why he desperately needed cash at the time.
Even when Cardi B, who is still very pregnant, came in, the tension between the comedians hung heavy in the room. Galifianakis, who was very delighted to have a "relevant" guest on the show, showered the rapper with compliments and gifts, including a "Rap Fan" onesie in a gender-neutral color.
"I'm not even between the ferns anymore," Seinfeld complained.
The show ended with the chart-topper, giving Galifianakis a warm hug and completely ignoring Seinfeld. Watch the uncomfortable, but hilarious interview below.
Cardi B Included In Maxim's Hot 100
Many would probably understand why Galifianakis would rather speak to Cardi B rather than Seinfeld. While the 64-year-old has become an icon in comedy, the 25-year-old rapper is the current talk of the town thanks to her chart-topping hits like "Be Careful" and "I Like It."
Recently, the mom-to-be is named one of the hottest ladies in 2018 by Maxim. She joins Beyoncé, Selena Gomez, Demi Lovato, Jennifer Lopez, Rihanna, Rita Ora, Nicki Minaj, Ariana Grande, Camila Cabello, and more in the "Divas" category. The sexiest woman of 2018 title is clinched by model-actress Kate Upton.
She also received a nomination from the Teens Choice Awards 2018 where she will compete with Grande, Lovato, Cabello, Dua Lipa, and Taylor Swift for Choice Female Artist.
The winners will be announced on a televised ceremony on Aug. 12.
