Janeane's Background
Background:  Born and raised in New Jersey until her senior year in high school when her family moved to Houston, Texas.  Garofalo attended college in Rhode Island.  It was there where she found her niche and got the bug by performing at an open-mike night.  After moving to Los Angeles, Garofalo became a guest comedienne in many of the popular comedy/variety shows. 

First starring role:  After many bit parts and walk-ons, Garofalo ran away with the hit movie, "The Truth About Cats and Dogs".  Her co-star was Uma Thurman, but critics attribute Garofalo's performance as the reason it was a box-office hit. 

Production Company:  Janeane has started her own production company entitled I Hate Myself Productions. 

Family:  Janeane is the daughter of Carmine and Joan Garofalo.
