Zach Galifianakis Plays Santa Claus, Discusses Cost-Effective Business Practices

It turns out the beard and gut aren’t just for show—comedian Zach Galifianakis is actually Santa Claus.

Stopping by IFC’s Comedy Bang! Bang! with Scott Aukerman and Reggie Watts a week before Christmas, Galifianakis came on the show to spill some details on the inner workings of the Santa biz.

He also brought a completely new meaning to the already creepy song lyrics “He sees you when you’re sleeping; He knows when you’re awake…” Galifianakis revealed that, as Santa, he partakes in a sort of pre-screening of children year-round, by watching children from the moment they’re conceived. According to Santa, it works out as an “early detection” plan to see how kids will turn out.
