Zach Galifianakis Net Worth: Zach Galifianakis is an American stand-up comedian and actor who has a net worth of $20 million dollars. Born October 1, 1969 in Wilkesboro, North Carolina, Zach Galifianakis is best known for his film appearances in The Hangover (movies) franchise. He dropped out of college just one credit short of graduating and moved to New York City where Galifianakis performed his first show at a restaurant in Times Square called Hamburger Harry's. After a year of honing his skills in NYC, Galifianakis moved to Los Angeles, where he thought his bizarre brand of comedy would be better received. In 1997, Zach Galifianakis made his television debut as Bobby on the short-lived NBC sitcom Boston Common. Also in 1997, he gained additional exposure on the short-lived MTV comedy Apt. 2F, and went on to earn his first film role in The King and Me (1999). From 2003 to 2005, Galifianakis played his longest-running recurring role on the sci-fi drama Tru Calling and continued acting in films and on television and touring small clubs across the country with other unconventional stand-up acts. A very popular documentary was made of this tour, titled The Comedians of Comedy, which offered even more exposure for Galifianakis. He then landed a recurring role on the hit Comedy Central Show, Reno 911, as well as the co-host slot on the short-lived mock news program Dog Bites Man. In 2008, he became widely known for a series of internet shorts for Absolut Vodka. That same year, he created his own internet comedy talk show, Between Two Ferns with Zach Galifianakis, hosted on Will Ferrell's popular comedy site Funny or Die. Galifianakis was purposely awkward and strange in the five-minute clips, as he interviewed many celebrities. In 2009, he landed his most famous role to date when he starred alongside Bradley Cooper and Ed Helms in the 2009 hit comedy The Hangover. The movie, directed by Todd Phillips, won a Golden Globe for best comedy or musical in 2010. That same year, Galifianakis had a small but memorable role in the Oscar-nominated George Clooney film Up in the Air. He went on to star opposite Jason Schwartzman on the critically acclaimed HBO series Bored to Death and in the follow-up sequels to The Hangover.
