Zach Galifianakis

What makes this worth watching is that North Carolina man happens to be  Zach Galifianakis [1], the comedian who grew up in Wilkesboro and owns a farm [2] in Alleghany County. (His uncle Nick Galifianakis of Durham also served in Congress from 1967 and 1973.)

Galifianakis, who also attended N.C. State University [3],  “interviewed” President Barack Obama for his “Between Two Ferns” series he does of a spoof cable-access talk show he does for Funnyordie [4] comedy website.

Obama came on to plug Healthcare.gov and ends up dodging questions about his birth certificate and the NSA.

Go ahead and watch, if you haven’t already:
