Interview With Janeane Garofalo, Tasha Robinson, The Onion
Tasha Robinson of The Onion A.V. Club, a section of the publication dedicated to in-depth interviews, talks to actor and comic Janeane Garofalo 'about her reputation, her image, her films, and her perceived irrelevance.' When Robinson asks Garofalo why she thinks people misperceive her as cynical, Garofalo replies that it's because she's a female comic. 'They only call females 'caustic,' whereas Chris Rock and Dennis Miller are 'edgy.'' She adds: 'But me and Sandra Bernhard are 'ball-busters,' or 'castrating.' That type of thing. It's just sexist.' For more insight into the life of Garofalo and the challenges of acting and making people laugh, check out the rest of the interview.
