If you're not excited about tomorrow's debut of Youth in Revolt, you're crazy. The flick looks like it's going to rock, starring the typecast version of Michael Cera (you know, the soft-spoken nerdy-but-loveable character), the delinquent version of Michael Cera, and best of all, Zach Galifianakis.

Now this guy (Galifiana-whatever) still hasn't gotten enough dap. His special, Live at the Purple Onion, is an all-time great stand-up routine. Below is a preview of the special, but a clip you've got to check out is one with his impressions from the show. He impersonates, among other things, a five-year-old with a beard. You can find the spot pretty easily on YouTube, but beware of some foul language.

He's also got a ton of great stuff on Funny or Die - specifically his "Between Two Ferns" interview segment. And I think it's unanimous that his performance in The Hangover was downright awesome. The pager incident at Caesar's, the extra small t-shirt, his role as the adoptive father of a baby he names "Carlos" - Bradley Cooper and Andy from the Office (err, I mean Ed Helms) were great, but Galifianakis made it the must-see comedy that it was.

But back to the movie ... anybody else amped to see it? For those checking it out at midnight tonight, or early tomorrow, let us know how it is ... less the spoilers, of course.
