Janeane Garofalo was one of the definitive comedians of the '90s. Her mix of deadpan sarcasm with heartfelt (and often angry) earnestness would set the bar for what has become an ever growing "alternative" comedy scene throughout this decade. She still is very much a part of that scene, performing around town regularly at places like UCB and Union Hall with local staples such as Eugene Mirman and Todd Barry. While her no-bullshit politics have been at the forefront of her career since her two-year stint as a radio host on Air America, she is still finding work as, what Gene Siskel once dubbed, "one of the best supporting actresses of our time."
Do you have a favorite spot around town, a go-to? I would go every day to a place called Chocolate Bar, because I'm addicted to hot white chocolate. I also love spicy hot chocolate.
