The winner of numerous comedy awards and recognitions, she officially began her career in stand-up comedy in the late 1980s during the grunge era.

Her comedy is often self-deprecating; she made fun of popular culture and the pressures put on women to live up to media-created body ideals.

In April 2004 she was selected by Comedy Central as one of the 100 Greatest Stand-Ups of All Time.

Garofalo has been open and outspoken regarding her political views.

Janeane has 15 tattoos.

Once hosted a radio talk show on the far left wing Air America network. Its ratings were negligible.
