Anybody who was born after 1994 is probably like, “Who’s Janeane Garofalo?” and that’s the same question her husband of 20 years asked recently. We all have a secret husband we forgot we were married to and Janeane Garofalo found out about hers last week. During a reunion for “The Ben Stiller Show” at The New York Comedy Festival on Saturday, Janeane told the audience that she was married to one of the show’s writers for 20 years and didn’t know it.
“Rob and I got married, for real, which we had to have a notary dissolve not 30 minutes before we got here tonight. We were married for 20 years until this evening. We got married drunk in Vegas . . . We dated for a year, and we got married at a drive-through chapel in a cab. [We thought] you have to go down to the courthouse and sign papers and stuff, so who knew? We were married, and apparently now that [Rob] is getting married for real, his lawyer dug up something.”
After they accidentally got married and broke up, Rob went on to produce The Big Bang Theory, so you know what that means? GET THAT MONEY, JANEANE!
But seriously, we now know the secret to a long-lasting, successful marriage. Get married, move into separate houses in separate cities, live separate lives, never see each other, fuck other people, forget each other’s faces, forget each other’s names and after 20 years of doing that you can finally say that you’ve had a fulfilling marriage. That’s how you do it. Janeane broke the code!
