Before they were Alan and Mr. Chow in The Hangover comedy franchise, Zach Galifianakis and Ken Jeong were doing comedy together on the small stage at Petterson's Coffeehouse in Los Angeles.
In 1998, the funnymen tested their material at the open-mic hotspot, which has since closed. Both around 29 or 30 when this stand-up was shot, the men have come a long way since their early stand-up days.
The two star in the third installment of The Hangover where they return to where it all began, Las Vegas. The Hangover Part III hits theaters May 23, 2013.
