Before coming to town to tape a new stand-up comedy special at a pair of shows at The Moore on Saturday, comedian, actor, and political activist Janeane Garofalo took a few minutes to reflect on her first show, her last show, and the last song she'd like to hear before her time is up.
Janeane Garofalo performs at 7 and 9:30 p.m., Saturday, at The Moore. Tickets are $18.
