Janeane is one of the biggest names in the stand-up comedy showbiz. She developed an interest in comedy at a very young age, drawing inspiration from ‘Late Night with David Letterman’ for her drollness. After graduating from high school, she entered a comedy contest and did a number of odd jobs before setting foot in the world of entertainment. Like many comedians/ennes, her childhood was one of ‘struggles’ and as every story goes, she had to work from one pole to another to make ends meet. Her humor, which is characterized as dark, atypical and politically ‘correct’, has made her stand out from the rest, for which she has received extremely positive reviews. She has grown to become a cult figure, venting her frustrations on live television shows and voicing her opinions on issues pertaining to everything from food to relationships and scandalous office affairs. Apart from her career as a comedienne, she also did a brief stint as an actress and appeared in ‘Romy and Michele’s High School Reunion’ and ‘Mystery Men’. She is a regular at New York City’s local comedy scene.
