Life Story of Janeane Garofalo

Janeane, the petite woman with the acerbic wit, was born in Newton, New Jersey, in 1964, to Joan, a secretary, and Carmine Garofalo, an Exxon executive. She is of Italian and Irish descent. Janeane had many jobs before breaking into show biz. She worked as a bike messenger, a shoe salesperson, waitress and temp secretary. Watching David Letterman on TV inspired her to write comedy, and by 1985 she was doing stand up comedy. As such, Janeane has become a cult figure, giving a voice to a generation, venting her frustration at TV, dating, relationships, life in general and anything that ticks her off in particular. Janeane did sketches on The Ben Stiller Show (1992) (an Emmy-winning, but canceled show). She would continue to collaborate with Ben Stiller in future projects. Janeane received 2 Emmy nominations for her work on The Larry Sanders Show (1992), developing her signature character: a smart, cynical woman with a razor wit. She was not happy with her Saturday Night Live (1975) stint in 1994, and was vocal about it (of course). Transferring her persona from TV to the big screen, she moved on to movies, basically playing the character she had defined for herself. In Romy and...

Garofalo, barely five feet tall, sometimes had to stand on a box just to be in the same frame with 6-foot co-star Uma Thurman in The Truth About Cats & Dogs (1996).

Married boyfriend Robert Cohen in 1992 at a Las Vegas drive-in chapel as a joke. They had gone to Vegas with the rest of the cast of The Ben Stiller Show (1990) and decided to get married along with some of the other crew members. After their relationship ended they never officially got divorced. In November 2012, they finally had their marriage dissolved when Cohen became engaged to Jill Leiderman. Ex-sister-in-law of Joel H. Cohen.

Guest-starred in two Law & Order (1990) episodes, the first one called "D-Girl" and in a The Sopranos (1999) called "D-Girl". The "D" stands for "development". In the film industry, a D-girl is a low-level executive who considers scripts for further development.

Is very good friends with Ben Stiller. Both had short lived tenures on Saturday Night Live (1975), both starred on The Ben Stiller Show (1992), they have collaborated on movies together, and have written and created other comedy shows together. Garofalo has said that she works well with Stiller because they are complete opposite personalities, hers being caustic and political while Stiller is more go with the flow and silly, and they are able to fill in the gaps the other person misses.

The original pitch for Just Shoot Me! (1997) was Garofalo getting stuck in a waiting room with a model with whom she has nothing in common. Garofalo later became the template for Laura San Giacomo's role of Maya Gallo.

Was offered the Dorothy Boyd role in Jerry Maguire (1996) by Cameron Crowe if she could lose weight, but, after trimming down, she learned that Renée Zellweger had won the part instead in what was to become a career-launching smash hit.

In his DVD commentary for Dogma (1999), director Kevin Smith said that, in retrospect, he wished he offered the role of Bethany to Garofalo instead of Linda Fiorentino, whom he found very difficult to work with. Sometimes the two did not even speak. Garofalo appeared in the film in the role of "Liz" at the abortion clinic.
