Back in October, Seeso subscribers got a chance to see Janeane Garofalo's latest special, “If I May,” when it debuted on the comedy streaming service. Now, comedy fans everywhere will have the opportunity to pick-up the album on iTunes, Google Play, Amazon and all other digital retailers when Comedy Dynamics releases the show on Jan. 6.
“If I May,” which was filmed at The Independent Theatre in San Francisco, highlights Garofalo's uniquely hilarious style of storytelling and interactions with the audience. Everything from “The Hunger Games” to eco-friendly adult diapers are discussed throughout the show. The live audience was full of laughter the night of the recording and fans at home will be too.
Following the release of “If I May,” Garofalo has a handful of live shows scheduled throughout January. She will be stopping by Chicago's Tahlia Hall on Jan. 7 before heading to The Stand in New York City on Jan. 11. She also has several sets planned at Mootsy's in Spokane, WA later in the month and she will be headlining the New York edition of the What A Joke Festival – which is raising money for the ACLU during inauguration weekend in a response to threats against human rights by President-Elect Donald Trump – on Jan. 19.
Garofalo has released two previous stand-up specials and appeared in many notable films including “Reality Bites,” “Wet Hot American Summer” and “Ratatouille.” She also has an impressive TV resume with featured roles in a diverse selection of shows such as “The Ben Stiller Show,” “The West Wing,” “Girlfriend's Guide to Divorce” and “Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp.”
Comedy Dynamics is the largest independent stand-up comedy production and distribution company. Kevin Hart, Louis C.K., Aziz Ansari, Jim Gaffigan and Katt Williams are just a few of the amazing comedic talents who have worked with the organization. It also produces a variety of scripted comedy on Seeso, as well as “There's... Johnny,” “Join Or Die with Craig Ferguson” and “Coming to The Stage.” "Since 'B Minus Time Traveler,' I have been a huge fan of Janeane's comedy," said Brian Volk-Weiss, president and founder of Comedy Dynamics.
