His name is Zach Galifianakis, and you might recognize him as the schlub that Mike Tyson hilariously KOd in Todd Phillipss The Hangover. Or maybe you know him better as the blubbery dude from HBOs new comedy, Bored to Death. Point is, a year ago, Galifianakis was just a hirsute heavyweight on NYCs underground comedy scene; these days, hes on the way to becoming Americas favorite fat guy.
This Monday, hit Sweat Records for an 8 p.m. screening of the Zach mans lesser-known 2008 flick, Visioneers. Directed by Jared Drake, its a black comedy starring Galifianakis as George Washington Winsterhammerman, a deeply depressed drone for the dystopian Jeffers Corporation. One day, Georges co-workers begin exploding due to unhappiness, and it looks like hes next. This is Galifianakis at his absurdist, occasionally spastic, and beardedly chubby best. The screening is free.
