Zach Galifianakis stars in "Bored to Death" on HBO as Ray Hueston. On the big screen, he can be heard as the voice of Humpty Dumpty in DreamWorks Animation's "Puss in Boots."

After failing his last college course by one point at North Carolina State University, Zach Galifianakis moved to New York City. Galifianakis got his start performing his brand of humor in the back of a hamburger joint in Times Square, graduating to doing stand-up at night in clubs and coffee houses in the city. While working as a bus boy, he got his first acting job on the sitcom "Boston Common" for NBC. In the eclectic career that followed, he has gone on to perform on a number of late night talk shows, including "The Late Show with David Letterman," "Late Night with Conan O'Brien" and "Jimmy Kimmel Live!"

Zach's breakout moment came in the blockbuster hit "The Hangover," alongside Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms and Justin Bartha. Directed by Todd Phillips, the Warner Bros. feature became the highest grossing R-rated comedy of all time. He followed "The Hangover" with a starring role in the Jerry Bruckheimer produced live-action Disney feature "G-Force," which also debuted at #1 and grossed over $290 million worldwide. Galifianakis previously starred in "Due Date," in which he re-teams with director Todd Phillips and Warner Bros. to star opposite Robert Downey, Jr. Zach was also seen in the Focus Feature film "It's Kind of a Funny Story," and in the successful sequel, "The Hangover Part II."

Zach was previously seen in Paramount Pictures' "Dinner for Schmucks," opposite Steve Carell and Paul Rudd. His other credits include the independent feature "Youth in Revolt" opposite Michael Cera, Steve Buscemi and Ray Liotta, as well as a cameo role for Jason Reitman's Academy Award-nominated film, "Up in the Air." He also appeared in the Fox feature "What Happens in Vegas" opposite Cameron Diaz and Ashton Kutcher, and the critically acclaimed "Into the Wild" from Paramount Vantage and director Sean Penn.

Other film credits include "Little Fish, Strange Pond," "Rogue's Gallery," "Visioneers," "Heartbreakers," "Bubble Boy," "Below," "Corky Romano," "Out Cold," and the documentary "The Comedians of Comedy."

In 2008 he was the writer and co-creator of the Comedy Central pilot "Speed Freaks." His television work includes a series regular role on "Tru Calling"; a host spot on his own critically acclaimed VH1 talk show "Late World with Zach"; and numerous appearances on such shows as "The Sarah Silverman Program"; as well as a recurring role on "Reno 911!" He also wrote for, and starred in, Comedy Central's "Dog Bites Man."
