sorry for another video but this one is perfect. that’s right, PERFECT. i did just raise the stakes that high. you’re welcome.
even better, here is an interview snippet from A Special Thing RADIO with comedian zach galifianakis about how he almost got kicked out of the Ellen Show for not dancing (as evidenced in the clip above)…
ZG: Ellen DeGeneres almost had me kicked out of her show because of the way I looked and because I refused to dance…
Quinn and I went to the Ellen DeGeneres show. I didn’t want to go. We went, and you dance for an hour. An hour! A frisbee could come out and entertain people that are whooped up like that. An inanimate object, like a stapler could come out and people’d go nuts. Because you dance for an hour to Kool & The Gang, and I just did not want to do it. Nothing against her.
Interviewer [Matt]: When was this?
ZG: Fall, I guess, a few months ago. I can’t remember.
So Ellen has a camera in her dressing room so she can watch everybody, probably pick out who she wants to interact with. So she saw me, and I had a giant beard at the time, and a very disgusted look on my face. And she told security…”Who is that guy? I want him removed.” Then Karen came out and told me, and she was so delighted to tell me.
