    Zach Galifianakis might just be the king of random comedy.

    The Hangover star hit the stage on Saturday Night Live this week for his third time as host, kicking off the show with a bunch of disconnected one-liners that totally cracked up the audience.

    Like these genius lines, for example: 

    "Don't get your hopes up. I hope everybody had a great Thanksgiving."

    "Every now and then someone comes up to me and says, ‘Has anyone ever told you you look like the guy from The Hangover? No offense." 

    "I once got urinated on in the parking lot at a Cracker Barrel (shakes head). Craigslist."

    And as he sat down to play a little ditty on the piano, he added, "here's something you'll never see in Braille: If you see something, say something." 

    Then, it was time for the show.

    On his first skit of the night, Galifianakis played the uber-excited, dragon-costumed Duncan, a contestant on E! parodied movie trivia game show "Game of Game of Thrones." Comedy ensued when Duncan kept going back and forth with host O.J. Sampson (Bill Hader), who gives him only non-Game of Thrones related questions—none of which Duncan knows the answers to.

    "What's the capital of Wisconsin?," Sampson asked. "Umm…Alaska?!," Duncan replied.

    Next, we saw Galifianakis put on his best blonde Jennifer Aniston wig (and a Friends t-shirt) for the 15th Annual Jennifer Aniston look-alike contest. As Galifianakis hit the stage to tell host Jason Sudeikis why he should have won the competition, his Hangover co-stars Bradley Cooper and Ed Helms popped up as wig-wearing contestants as well, and the trio ended up singing "That's What Friends are For."

    Galifianakis continued to bring on the laughs as "racist Jim," a disgruntled employee at a candy store, who basically lost it on everyone his first day and hurled racist comments while wearing an M&M suit.  He makes matters worse when he attempts to apologize the next day. 

    The comedian also rocked in a skit in which he played a Charlotte Bobcats halftime juggler with Sudeikis, performing at Michael Jordan's wedding reception.

    And he also shined in a two-part sketch called "Darrell's House," in which Jon Hamm made an appearance.

    Of Monsters and Men served as the musical guests of the night, performing "Little Talks" and "Mountain."

    So, what did you think about Zach's second hosting stint?
