On his 15th visit to "Jimmy Kimmel Live," funnyman Zach Galifianakis explained how and when he became interested in show business.

Well, it all started when he was just a young boy. "I was in elementary school and the guy who whistled the theme song to 'The Andy Griffith Show' came and whistled," "The Hangover" star said.

The young-Galifianakis was so impressed by the fact that he could show up to work with nothing more than the ability to whistle and "captivate an assembly of children."At that moment, he knew that he needed to figure out how to have a similar career.

But then he got his pants pulled down. Which, if you think about it, seems like a very "in scene" moment for the comedian-to-be.

Galifianakis went on to talk about his role as Humpty "Alexander" Dumpty in "Puss in Boots" and the geriatric-hipness of Ted Danson on his show "Bored to Death."
