JANEANE GAROFALO (Dr. Beth Levy) is well-known as an actress and a comedian whose trenchant views on politics and relationships have earned her a huge following.

She attended Providence College in Rhode Island and began performing stand-up in her senior year. Shortly after graduating with a degree in American Studies and History, she moved to Los Angeles and made her national television debut on The Dennis Miller Show. Among her earliest television stand-up appearances were Fox-TV's Comic Strip Live and MTV's Half-Hour Comedy Hour. She was also an original cast member of the short-lived but Emmy-winning The Ben Stiller Show. Stiller and Garofalo have remained close friends and occasional collaborators; their cooperative effort Feel This Book was published by Ballantine in 1999.

Garofalo was a series regular on HBO's acclaimed The Larry Sanders Show, for which she received an Emmy nomination in 1997 and two Cable Ace nominations. Her other television work includes two specials for HBO and the series finale of Mad About You. She also hosted Indie Outing, a music-based show for MTV. During the fall of 1994 she joined the cast of Saturday Night Live.

Among her films are Big Trouble, Wet Hot American Summer, The Truth About Cats and Dogs, Steal This Movie, Mystery Men, Dog Park, Permanent Midnight, Clay Pigeons, The Minus Man, Dogma, Copland, Romy and Michelle's High School Reunion, Reality Bites, Bye Bye Love, Larger Than Life, Touch and The Cable Guy.

Garofalo co-hosts, with Sam Seder, the popular program "Majority Report,” on Air America Radio. She maintains a steady schedule of live comedy appearances around the country.
