April 27th | 8 PM
Janeane Garofalo has been an American institution since she burst on the scene in 1992. Landmark audiences were introduced to her ability to mine the deeper meaning of famous peoples' own words to hilarious effect in last season's production of Celebrity Autobiography.
Janeane has had many memorable and critically acclaimed film roles including The Truth About Cats and Dogs, Wet Hot American Summer, Ratatouille, Reality Bites, and Romy and Michelle's High School Reunion. Janeane also co-authored the best seller Feel This Book, with Ben Stiller.
Janeane was a cast member of the Emmy Award-winning Ben Stiller Show and played the role of Paula, the acerbic talent booker, on The Larry Sanders Show, for which she received an Emmy nomination. Janeane's television work includes Saturday Night Live, two specials for HBO, FOX's 24, Mad About You, and the final season of NBC's The West Wing, where she played Democratic campaign strategist Louise Thornton.
In addition to acting in film and television, Janeane is an outspoken activist, spoken word performer and stand-up comedy entertainer known and respected around the world. She was instrumental in the successful launching of the first liberal radio network, Air America Radio, where she hosted her own talk show, The Majority Report. A lightning rod for controversy, Janeane's well informed opinions and unflinching honesty have inspired laughs, as well as striking a chord with the left, right and everyone in between.
