It turns out this funny man had a slew of odd jobs before hitting it big, but the most suprising one was his stint as a nanny!

Remember that hilarious scene in The Hangover, when Zach Galifianakis carries a mystery kid around in a Baby Bjorn? It turns out that’s actually not very far off from Zach’s pre-stardom life! HollyBaby.com spoke to the bearded comedian Sept. 14, at the NYC premiere of his new film It’s Kind of a Funny Story, and he revealed that he’s had several crazy jobs!

“Acting is fun, but it’s a job,” the 40-year-old says. “I mean it’s a fun job, better than anything else I’ve had. I bussed tables, didn’t like that. I cleaned houses, didn’t like that. I was a nanny, didn’t like that. I mean, I was 28.”

Wow, we can see Zach doing all of those things, but a nanny? No way! The actor, who has never been married and has no children, also revealed that if he were to describe his style, it would be similar to a “community college librarian.”

He’s a funny guy, but would you let Zach come over and babysit your kiddies?
