I saw him at Cobb's in SF, so between tough parking and long line to get in, give yourself extra time.

If you sit near the front know that you will be targeted for material towards the end of the show :)

Another night of great comedy at Cobb's. I think I might have to become a regular.

I don't need to pay $20 to hear chicks rant about inane crap. NOT FUNNY.

felt like it was a forum rather than a comedy show. I didn't laugh out loud once. Mainly just smiled a bit.

Description

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. Most recently she lent her voice to the animated series “Freak Show” on Comedy Central and to last year’s hit film “Ratatouille” with Patton Oswalt. In 2004, she was selected as #99 on Comedy Central’s list of the 100 greatest stand-ups of all time.

Also appearing is Mary Lynn Rajskub, best known as Kiefer Sutherland’s co-star on the popular television series “24.” Cast by David Cross in 1995, Rajskub made her television debut as one of the original cast members of “Mr. Show with Bob and David.” She has also appeared in “The Larry Sanders Show,” “Veronica’s Closet” and “Good Morning Miami.” Rajskub is also part of the comic duo “Girls Guitar Club,” which appeared on the NBC show “Late Friday.” In addition to television, comedy and music, Rajskub has made appearances in numerous feature films, including Magnolia, Sweet Home Alabama and Little Miss Sunshine, and has been nominated for the Screen Actors Guild Awards two times, in 2005 and in 2007.
