In many of the recent articles written about Janeane Garofalo, they asked, “where has she been?” and the answer is she has been out on stage, making audiences laugh and think with spot-on social commentary and intimate confessions.

But the culture shock in her senior year of high school caused acute depression, and she got fat (5'1", 160 pounds).

After graduation, Garofalo headed off to Providence College in Rhode Island, where she decided to try stand-up comedy, which soon inspired the plump 20-year-old to undergo breast reduction surgery.

(The two were drunk at the time and didn't believe the ceremony was binding.) Garofalo has continued to work as a stand-up comedian in a variety of formats in recent years, and has spoken openly about the Hollywood double standard when it comes to older actresses and women in general.

It’s a shame that Janeane Garofalo’s politics have overshadowed her standup.

After graduating from Providence with a degree in history, Garofalo pursued her standup career in Boston.

She briefly returned to Houston to nurse her mother through cancer; after her death, Garofalo moved to Los Angeles, where she landed simultaneous roles on both The Ben Stiller Show and The Larry Sanders Show.

In 2004, Garofalo began cohosting a daily talk show, The Majority Report, on the liberal Air America Radio network.
