Zach Galifianakis hosts 'SNL,' wears dragon suit (Videos, poll)

Zach Galifianakis recently appeared on "Saturday Night Live," bringing the laughs in a (tight) dragon suit and red M&M getup.

The 43-year-old actor, known for his comedy roles with films such as "The Hangover" and "Due Date," hosted the sketch comedy show for the third time on May 4 -- and he definitely brought the funny.

In his opening monologue, the actor talked about ... a number of random things. He told short stories and jokes about playing charades with his father, being recognized at gift shops and his strange meeting with someone from Craigslist. He went on to play the piano and deliver a host of hilarious set-ups -- with no punch lines.

Galifianakis next appeared in a sketch about "Game of Thrones," which saw the actor dressed in a tight green dragon suit. In the skit, he played a contestant on a game show, "Game of Game of Thrones," where he was tested on all things George R. R. Martin. After a series of questions that the actor couldn't answer, there was a special guest appearance by real-life "Game of Thrones" star Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, who plays Jaime Lannister on the fantasy adventure series (Watch below).

The "Campaign" actor next donned a large, red M&M suit for a skit that saw him playing "racist Jim," a character who continually put down his coworkers. The actor's character, Jim, was a racist greeter at an M&M store who was trying to make amends for the previous day's racial offenses -- and he doesn't do too well (Watch below).

In another two-part sketch, Galifianakis plays a man with public access television who is attempting to put together a show about getting his first house guest. The first skit shows his character, Darrell, putting together the act, while the second one is the finished product that features a special appearance by Jon Hamm (Watch below).
