The Janeane Garofalo troll is back!

by Anonymousreply 1August 20, 2021 12:33 AM

I always suspected the GapPlaylist guy and Janeane Garofalo troll are the same.

I love her stand up and punditry. MYSTERY MEN is the only film of her I enjoy. Her other rom com shit is not my style.

R2 Love her style too.

Here's an interview with Janeane Garofalo from March 4th, 1995 promoting Bye Bye Love. Right after she had left SNL. She also mentions filming TTACAD.

Notice she's wearing the same floral shirt that often wore on the show, as well as "Comedy Product".

Saw her standup once. She read from note cards which she got out of order.

After getting them in order - which took too long - she told a long story of a joke about eating at Chili's. But halfway through, "Chili's" became "TGIFridays". When she realized she fucked up the name of the restaurant, she goes "Nevermind, I'll do the next joke".

I hoped it was all intended to be some cringe comedy thing - Andy Kauffman'ish. But, no. She was just disorganized and boring.

A cautionary tale of untreated depression.

She's pushing 60, childless, with a possibly fictional husband, and no career to speak of.

Margaret Cho is another '90s comedy goddess in the same boat: The USS Pathetic.

What was that bit she did on some show where she and Sandra Bernhard were playing Cagney & Lacy type cop partners shooting a scene that went haywire?

by Anonymousreply 51October 13, 2021 11:24 PM

Forgive my Swiss cheese memory, but I know I saw her at the Wiltern a gazillion years ago.

A charity event.

Multiple acts.

Bob and Dave were there.

Good Lord, were the Kids in the Hall there too??

I know I saw KITH at the Wiltern on a separate occasion, but besides JG and B&D, I know there were others, maybe KITH.

Can anyone substantiate my fever dream?

Was Christopher the writer of the episode or something, right, and the ladies were less than pleased?

She looked so mishapened and decrepit on that last season of Younger and should not be playing romantic interests, Lesbian or otherwise.

Saw her in an old forgotten movie The Minus Man with that blonde haired actor whose name I can’t remember . Attempted suicide .

She was very good in this movie, as was the main actor. agree with poster who said untreated depression . Very common

Met her once professional: Angry, unhygienic, nasty cunt. Her handler was professional and thankfully did most of the talking/business. This was a long time ago (20 years?), and I imagine she's only gotten worse over time. Horrible people rarely get nicer as they age.

R68 She's talked about how she travels alone.

What exactly did she do or say that was so sour, just curious?

by Anonymousreply 69October 26, 2021 1:41 AM

I don't recall the conversation verbatim from 20 years. It wasn't that important to me at the time, and honestly it's even less important to me now. What I do recall was that she was extraordinarily unpleasant (and I've met a few unpleasant [bigger] stars before) and looked several days past for a shower. Her face was permanently screwed up in a scowl. Not resting bitch face, but a scowl. I remember just feeling the heat of anger radiating off of her although nothing had occurred to set her off. The handler didn't have any complaints or issues on her behalf. I don't know what her problem was... maybe she was mad that I didn't make a big fuss about how famous and brilliant she was, maybe she was pissed that the show didn't sell well, maybe she was having her period. I don't know. I've been turned off to her ever since.
