One of the architects of the alternative comedy genre, and a huge influence on the generation of comics that followed, iconic stand-up Janeane Garafalo will be making her first ever Calgary appearance as part of our 2016 festival. As far as comedy pedigree goes, it would be tough to best having been a castmember of The Ben Stiller Show, The Larry Sanders Show, and Saturday Night Live, never mind all her film work, but at her core she will always be a stand-up. In fact, her first stand-up special HBO’s Half Hour Comedy would be listed as #5 on IFC’s Most Innovative Specials, and was named as one of the Top 20 Stand-Up Specials of All Time by Splitsider. More recently she recorded her third special If You Will – Live In Seattle for EPIX. Now, finally, is your first chance to see her Live In Calgary.
