Janeane Garofalo

Stand-up comedian and actress Janeane Garofalo was the poster child for dry and caustically witty women in film and television in the late 1980s and early '90s. Her self-deprecating humor and hipster style endeared her to college age audiences, but as her fame grew, Garofalo found it uncomfortable - if not downright impossible - to work within the Hollywood system. She eventually retreated from the mainstream, settling into a variety of roles, including a radio host on the liberal Air America network, where her comments sometimes drew fire from the conservative political community. After her radio career drew to a close, Garofalo continued working in films such as Richard Kelly's "Southland Tales" (2007), David Wain's "The Ten" (2007), and teen comedy "General Education" (2012). She found more work on television, including a starring role on police procedural "Criminal Minds: Suspect Behavior" (CBS 2011) and a supporting role on romantic drama "Girlfriends' Guide to Divorce" (Bravo 2014- )
