It was a fun show but I think she was off her game. She couldn't keep track of where she was in her set or something else was wrong. She had some funny bits but overall it was a bit dissapointing. She was apologetic about not being a comic which I thought was weird because she can be very funny and has some great lines.
Janeane Garofalo’s comedy is cynical, harsh, and yet somehow still charming. Her topical rants often make fun of popular culture, politics, and the pressures on women to conform to body image ideals promoted by the media. Garofalo is a self-described pessimist: “I guess I just prefer to see the dark side of things. The glass is always half empty. And cracked. And I just cut my lip on it. And chipped a tooth.”
She began in stand-up comedy and then moved into television in the early ‘90s as part of “The Ben Stiller Show” on Fox, and then as a regular on “Saturday Night Live” and “The Larry Sanders Show.” She appeared in independently produced comedies such as “Reality Bites” and “The Truth About Cats and Dogs,” as well as more dramatic roles in “Cop Land,” “Permanent Midnight,” and "The West Wing” on NBC. In 2004 Garofalo made the leap to radio as co-host of Air America’s “Majority Report,” a syndicated show critical of the George W. Bush administration. She’s lent her voice to the animated series “Freak Show” on Comedy Central and to last year’s hit film “Ratatouille” with Patton Oswalt. She joined the cast of Fox’s “24” for the show’s seventh season. In 2004, she was selected as #99 on Comedy Central’s list of the 100 greatest stand-ups of all time.
