The Spark That Lit the Big Bang

RHLSTP has hit an important milestone, but what number exactly and why is Scotland so hot right now? Richard's guest is legendary stand up and actor, Janeane Garofolo. They talk about the tangential nature of Janeane's comedy, being mistaken for a homeless person, why she doesn't have a podcast (or any social media), working with Gary Shandling and giving it up for Saturday Night Live, getting typecast, regretting early stand up and why it's hard to work with executives. It's a fascinating chat about a long and varied career that included parts in the Sopranos, West Wing, Seinfeld, 24 and coming to terms with the changes in fortune and why stand up remains the most important thing.
