LOS ANGELES (TheWrap.com) – Zach Galifianakis is about to turn over a new leaf – or at least an old leaf in a new forum.

Galifianakis’ Funny or Die faux-interview series “Between Two Ferns With Zach Galifianakis” will air a special half-hour episode on Comedy Central on May 6, prior to this year’s Comedy Awards.

“Between Two Ferns” producer Scott Aukerman broke the news on the Comedy Bang Bang podcast Monday, noting that the episode, titled “Between Two Ferns: A Fairy Tale of New York,” will feature Tina Fey, Jon Stewart and Richard Branson.

Since the internet series premiered in 2008, “The Hangover” star Zach Galifianakis has conducted painfully awkward interviews with the likes of Tila Tequila, Steve Carell, Sean Penn and Charlize Theron.
