According to a review by EW.com, Queens Of The Stone Age got more than they bargained for at Zach Galifianakis’ stand-up comedy show. The band had apparently asked the comedian/Hangover star’s manager for free tickets to his sold out show in LA Wednesday night (August 31). While Josh Homme, Troy Van Leeuwen, and Michael Shuman ended up getting good seats, they also became prime targets for Galifianakis.
“I don’t fucking know you guys!,” the comedian yelled at the band throughout the night. At one point, Galifianakis mocked QOTSA by saying “’Can we get tickets?’ Let me Google them and see who the f— they are! I don’t know you motherfuckers!” But it didn’t stop there, as Galifianakis actually brought Josh Homme up on stage for a Q&A session later in the evening. After the QOTSA frontman told him that he was from Palm Springs, Galifianakis replied “Palm Springs, one of those great heavy metal towns. Isn’t Warrant from there?”
In case you’ve never seen him perform stand-up, or if you couldn’t tell from his role in The Hangover films, Galifianakis’ style of comedy is off the wall to say the least. It’s obvious that he was just playing around with the band, and apparently Homme and the gang were good sports about it. We just wish we could’ve been there to see it.
