Product Description

She's funny. She's edgy. She's the one-and-only Janeane Garofalo (TV's 24, The Larry Sanders Show). And now, in her first solo special in over a decade, this Emmy nominated stand-up superstar digs into the many myths we all live by and casts her unique insights and hilarious riffs on life, culture and politics. Filmed live before a sold-out audience in Seattle's Moore Theater, it's a virtuoso hour-long display of Garofalo’s uniquely outrageous takes on everything from the trouble with twitter, to the truth about rehab, to the end of sex as we know it, to the vaguely disturbing perfection of Natalie Portman's... anatomy. Intrigued? Then prepare yourself, if that's possible, for the extreme comedy of JANEANE GARFALO: IF YOU WILL!

    I don't submit reviews for artist's performances. I don't consider myself qualified. To call what I'm typing right now a "review" is, therefore, just wrong. I just needed to share how much I enjoyed this DVD. I wanted to just submit a "star" rating alone, but that wasn't possible. Angry red letters appeared below the empty box demanding I "please write my review." I loved it. You might as well. End "review."

    This is a surprisingly good show. As somebody who was never a fan of Janeane's, I think she nailed just about everything here. Highly recommended, funny as hell.

    Is she wonder woman? Does she have superpowers? For me the answer is yes on both counts. I hate republowcans. Any sensible person should in this day and age. At a juncture in time when the need of the leadership of intelligent minds open to new ideas is so great, we can only find the proper direction in democratic principles and, unfortunately, people that are pushed out of the loop so far that they can only have public impact by becoming "comediennes" or public defenders of one sort or another. Janeane Garofalo is super wonderful as a person that finds the comedic crevasses not even considered by others. Her creative outflow goes toward creating a better understanding for the less fortunate what a life well considered can be. I love her.

    Jeanane at her best. I find I can almost quote something daily from this routine. I never tire of watching.

    I have never seen anyone who has a more organized scatter brain than this girl. I love to watch her stand-ups. I recently saw one of her old ones on HBO Comedy channel and they edited the end of it out. So, I decided to come to Amazon to see if I could find it in it's original form and found this instead. I enjoyed it and recommend it to everyone. We need more of her stuff,(i.e. more stand-ups in other locations).

    Early in her special, "If You Will", Janeane Garofalo talks about a recent trip to Starbucks, where an employee asks "You look like Janeane Garofalo. Whatever happened to her?" Well, it's apparent that although Ms. Garofalo doesn't have the ubiquitous film/TV presence she used to have, she is still doing what she does best, which is stand-up comedy. And although her acting chops may have its limits, her comedy is incisive, self-deprecating, bold, honest, and, most importantly, funny.

    As a huge stand-up comedy fan, I've come to realize that the best stand-up comics possess a courageous willingness to reveal the worst, most embarrassing, pathetic, sad, and human parts of themselves. It's only after exposing themselves in this raw way will the audience permit their ruthless critiques of others, and society at large. In "If You Will" Janeane continues to expose her personal insecurities, vanity, bodily functions, and humiliating experiences. She talks about her past alcohol abuse ("my boyfriend met me when I was still drinking, and so he was under the impression that I was fun and spontaneous"), her overeating, her being often mistaken for a Jewish lesbian ("Whenever people say that, I say 'you're giving me too much credit' "), her lack of interest in sex, and critics who describe her as someone "difficult to love" or "the kind of person you cross the street to avoid."

    After thoroughly skewering herself, Janeane does spend some time talking about broader issues (politics, religion, the youth of today) and her opinions on such things are what make her such a polarizing figure, and such a target for those who disagree with her. But her riffs on kids hooked on social media ("I am no stranger to narcissism, but at least I have the decency to hate myself"), her religious upbringing, the self-righteousness of her child-rearing friends, and her secret dream of being a highly functioning alcoholic are some of her funniest moments.
