Zach Galifianakis Chats About the Importance of Bees

In the most recent Speakeasy with Paul F. Tompkins, the comedian talks about why bees are important for his blueberry crop

Paul F. Tompkins may have gotten Ty Burell to joke that only two Modern Family cast members "are hardcore alcoholics," but this time he sat down with comedian Zach Galifianakis on his online series "Made Man."

Galifianakis didn't necessarily open up about his Hangover co-stars, but he did start talking about Broadway, blueberries, and where he got his start. Most notably, he showed off his worldly knowledge of bees.

"Are you familiar with the colony collapse disorder? From what I gather, thecolony collapse disorder is from the pesticides they put on the plants," he explains, saying that the cellphone thing is just a big myth. "The last couple years the berries haven't come because of the bees... the bees have to be everywhere to make you have food." Fascinating.

As for Galifianakis' first time on stage, the actor's comedy debut was apparently in New York City. "It was the back of a hamburger restaurant in Times Square called Hamburger Harry's," he says, adding that he showed up on the stage some 70 times before moving on. "I was forced to lie to myself that things were going well for a number of years."
