In other news…

Would you think an article describing Zach Galifianakis as "ramshackle" would be quite so positive? Ain’t journalism grand?

Speaking of grand journalism and comedy, the trades love their lingo, and Variety’s recent story on the stand-up comedy scene lumps Galifianakis in with a group of "second-tier yuksters," and says comedy is going so well, "even the second-tier yuksters are pulling in mid-five to low-six figures per night." Where’s my money?!
