Zach Galifianakis Goes On 'Conan' To Talk New York, Give Hosting Lessons (VIDEO)

Zach Galifianakis may not actually be onscreen in his latest movie "Puss in Boots," but we won't complain any time he does the rounds on talk shows. Last night, he appeared on "Conan" to pop out of a desk, tell some jokes and then give Conan some lessons he picked up from hosting "Between Two Ferns." Obviously, Conan has been regrowing his beard for the last couple weeks just for Zach's appearance.

A regular on Conan's shows for many years, Galifianakis stopped by Conan's couch (breaking some furniture in the process) to tell some jokes and to talk about his days wandering through the subway tunnels in New York City, in case Zach didn't already seem troll-like enough.

Conan moves onto asking Zach for some advice hosting a talk show, proven by his awkward and slightly aggressive work in "Between Two Ferns" (which Conan had been a guest on before). Imagine a talk show that consisted only of talking about the weather and forgetting guests' names.

True to form, Galifianakis simply asks to use the bathroom and walks off the set mid-interview with nary a mention of "Puss in Boots." We're dreadfully disappointed.
