In Partnership With Bill Blumenreich Presents/The Wilbur
Don't miss a stand-up performance from actress and comedian Janeane Garofalo, who has been an American institution since she burst on the scene in 1992.
Garofolo has had many memorable and critically acclaimed
roles in films such as "The Truth About Cats and Dogs," “Wet
Hot American Summer,” “Ratatouille,” "Steal This Movie,"
"Reality Bites," "Romy and Michelle's High School Reunion,"
"Mystery Men," “The Ten” and "The Cable Guy." 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. During the fall of '94 she joined the cast
of "Saturday Night Live." Some of Janeane's other television
work includes 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.
Comedian Dana Cairns will open for Garofalo. She has performed in Beantown Comedy Riot, the Rhode Island Comic Throwdown and Boston Comedy Festival. She has also recently won the Closet Comics Big Break contest, for which she was given the opportunity to open for Rob Schneider at Boston's Wilbur Theatre.
