Janeane Garofalo interview
Janeane Garofalo is an actress and comedian -- she's appeared in films like "Ratatouille," and was a leader in the alternative comedy movement of the 1990s.
She's also well known as a liberal activist, and for several years, she cohosted a leftist radio program on Air America Radio.
Garafalo, who is currently touring with comics like Marc Maron and Greg Proops as part of the Satiristas, tells host Jesse Thorn about her comedic inspirations, and her clever crib note method for her material that at one time garnered more laughs than the material itself.
Janeane Garofalo's acting credits include films like "Wet Hot America Summer" and "Ratatouille," and television series "24" and "The Larry Sanders Show."
The brainchild of host and producer Jesse Thorn, "The Sound of Young America" is an irreverent weekly arts and entertainment interview program, described by its creator as "a public radio show about things that are awesome."
