Jerry Seinfeld and pop star Cardi B both appeared on the latest episode of Zach Galifianakis' Between Two Ferns show and the results are hilarious. The two comedians trade insults over their respective careers, but Galifianakis has the last laugh and it's a good one. Cardi B shows up midway through and Seinfeld surprisingly allows a hug from the pop star, which is a far cry from what he offered Kesha on the red carpet last year. Cardi B then bumps Jerry Seinfeld to sitting on a milk crate, which technically is no longer between the two ferns any longer.

Before Between Two Ferns officially begins, Zach Galifianakis is looking away, talking to himself about how absurd it is to have Jerry Seinfeld on as his guest, thinking aloud and saying, "It's like I Love the Nineties," he Jokes. He later says, "We might as well have Lorena Bobbitt as the guest." Though it's clearly an act, the two comedians have no problem ripping into each other in a lighthearted, but very sobering way.

At one point in the episode, Jerry Seinfeld asks if The Hangover would have been considered a comedy classic had they not made the two sequels. Zach Galifianakis then jokes that he did them for the money because he has family members that needed the money. Specifically, his uncle needed the dough to get another yacht and that he too needed the money to buy a stretch limo. Galifianakis even brings out Wayne Knight, who played Newman, on Seinfeld to try and get Jerry to engage in their catchphrases from the show. Knight later takes money from Zach Galifianakis and walks off the stage.

Zach Galifianakis even makes fun of Jerry Seinfeld's Bee Movie, stating, "more like D minus," and while you know the two are kidding, some of the insults seem almost too real. Especially when it looks like Galifianakis is about to praise Seinfeld, only to find out that he's actually talking about Seinfeld co-creator and Curb Your Enthusiasm star Larry David. Watching the two comedians roast each other is something that fans of either of the two or both have to see. The Cardi B bit is good, but it kind of gets in the way of the savage burns that they were engaging in.

After Cardi B splits, Zach Galifianakis gets up to mock the opening segment of the Seinfeld series, where Jerry Seinfeld would do a standup comedy bit. Galifianakis, again, rips on the relevance of having Seinfeld on his show, likening him to the rock band Counting Crows and turning it into a joke about counting crow's feet. Overall, it's a hilarious episode as well as refreshing look at two comedians not taking themselves seriously at all, that needs to be seen to be believed.
