Janeane Garofalo was married for 20 years and didn't know it

Apparently what happens in Vegas stays there ... until your lawyer finds out about it.

Such is the lesson Janeane Garofalo and writer/producer Rob Cohen reportedly learned when they discovered they'd been married for the past 20 years, and just didn't know it.

According to the New York Post's Page Six, Garofalo recently recounted the scenario during the "Ben Stiller Show" reunion at the New York Comedy Festival. The 44-year-old comedic actress said that she married Cohen, a former writer for the "Ben Stiller Show," in Vegas as a joke, not realizing that the marriage was the real deal.

"Rob and I got married, for real, which we had to have a notary dissolve not 30 minutes before we got here tonight,” Garofalo said Saturday. “We were married for 20 years until this evening.”

It all began the way most things happen in Vegas (or so we hear): with plenty of drinks.

"We got married drunk .... We dated for a year, and we got married at a drive-through chapel in a cab," she recalled. "[We thought] you have to go to the downtown 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."

    I like Garofalo and think she is funny and real. I am not like her, and do not live in her world...but female comedians live in their own wild world, and thank goodness for that. Somebody has got to do it. As a stand up comedian she is not funny, but she is funny as a writer and an actress. And this story is funny. Good for her...for doing something silly while drunk...like get married to a dude for fun. How wild and crazy. I think it is funny...and considering she is a lesbian it is funnier. I am sure Cohen is laughing his head off too.

    This kind of stuff only some people will do, can do and get away with...and even think about doing. They live in their planet...and if it is harmless while being funny so be it. Is the divorce Las Vegas divorce too?

  8. Sounds Of Silence

    Hello darkness, my old friend
    I've come to talk with you again
    Because a vision softly creeping
    Left its seeds while I was sleeping
    And the vision that was planted in my brain
    Still remains
    Within the sound of silence

    In restless dreams I walked alone
    Narrow streets of cobblestone
    'Neath the halo of a street lamp
    I turned my collar to the cold and damp
    When my eyes were stabbed by the flash of a neon light
    That split the night
    And touched the sound of silence

    And in the naked light I saw
    Ten thousand people, maybe more
    People talking without speaking
    People hearing without listening
    People writing songs that voices never share
    And no one dared
    Disturb the sound of silence

    "Fools", said I, "You do not know
    Silence like a cancer grows
    Hear my words that I might teach you
    Take my arms that I might reach you"
    But my words, like silent raindrops fell
    And echoed
    In the wells of silence

    And the people bowed and prayed
    To the neon god they made
    And the sign flashed out its warning
    In the words that it was forming
    And the sign said, "The words of the prophets are written on the subway walls
    And tenement halls"
    And whispered in the sounds of silence

    This proves my theory. The key to a successful marriage is not participating in it. This example lasted 20 years... a record nowadays. THE ONLY people who benefit from marriage these days are divorce litigation attornies and the family court judges who orchestrate that auction house. THE WORST THING you can do for your children, if anything, is allow divorce lawyers to steal all the assets during the inevitable divorce. STEER CLEAR of ever getting married. Trust me.

      That's dumb. She was married on paper, but never lived as a married person. That's not really being married. The key to being married happily is for both people to be completely committed to it. I've been married for eighteen years and love it, but it takes a lot of time and attention to get the joy and benefits of it. And the joys are definitely worth it.

    Complete BS. The drunk, quickie, "oh my God, were married" Vegas wedding only exists in TV and movies. Contrary to popular belief, you can't just get drunk, run to the local Vegas chapel and get legally married. To be legally married in Las Vegas ( or anywhere else in Nevada), you MUST present yourself at the courthouse/county offices, stand in line, fill out paperwork, pay a fee, and receive a marriage license. THEN. You can go to a chapel and have a quickie marriage. Otherwise, it's just a pretend "symbolic" ceremony.....

      I got married spontaneously in Lake Tahoe in 1995 in small chapel on New Year's Eve (not to recommend from a tax perspective). We never had to go the courthouse. The license arrived by mail sometime later. Still married, though, and apparantly it is legal.

      Single people pay more taxes ONLY when both don't work. If both spouses work, the married typically pay more taxes. Just look at the tables. The higher tax rates kick it when married at less than 2x where they kick in for singles.

      ImIrish – you know that you lost *because* of your contempt for your fellow Americans, *not* because your negative views of them are actually true? Your general disconnect from truth, and rational science, is why your party has become a loser party. Because you're unable to grasp this, it's looking like you'll be lost in the swamp a long time. Which frustrates me, because our system could use a *rational* voice in favor of aggressive pro-market philosophies (which aren't always right, but sometimes are) but you're not going to be able to deliver it. And it truly is at some point a failing of both intelligence and ability to modernize.

    I've never seen a more ignorant bunch who is more absolutely sure of their rightness in my life when the simplest Internet search could EASILY educate them. No wonder this country and this world is in such bad shape.


    1. If you are MARRIED, you CANNOT file as SINGLE. That's a crime.

    2. When you do file as MARRIED FILING SEPARATELY, you HAVE to provide your spouse's NAME and SOCIAL SECURITY NUMBER.

    3. It's unclear whether or not the change in filing status would affect Garofalo for better or worse without seeing her actual returns, BUT since there is something called the MARRIAGE PENALTY (look it, geniuses) which affects high-earners more than low-earners, Garofalo and her hubby would probably owe a little more. But that can always be fixed by filing amended returns for the years in question.

    In conclusion, the rocket scientists claiming that you can "file as single even if you're married" and that you "don't have to acknowledge your spouse on your return" or that "you'd probably get money back anyway" are so stupid that they really are a waste of resources on this planet as ALL OF THIS INFORMATION IS READILY AND EASILY AVAILABLE ON THE INTERNET!!!

      What century are you living in? We practice serial monogamy in the US now, that's just the fact, and she probably prefers to keep from making a lifelong commitment when she knows it's likely to not be "life long".

    Typical of the leftist entertainment world. They do not think words mean anything, and apparently, when she says "I do" she was lying. Also, all the guys she has slept with in the past 20 years, she lied to them, too, since she didn't tell them she was a married woman. Honorable men would not have slept with her had they known. She deceived them as well – all because she does not mean what she says or does. Being an idiot is not funny or comedic. It is sad to think humanity has sunk so low. Should she ever decide to marry in the future, require a breathalyzer at the altar.

    One common misconception is that the parties have to live together for seven years. That is absolutely not true. A South Carolina marriage can be formed in as little as one night.

Eventually you'll figure out that you might be the one headed in the direction not the folks that are managing to elect a president. If the Republicans could offer up a candidate and a platform that people could actually get behind they might pick up that 4% or so they need to win. Until they do that you're gonna have someone to blame for all your problems. Even Mitt thinks you should be responsible for yourself so suck it up and take it like a man and quite blaming everyone else for electing Obama. You're the guys that failed to win the voters over.

    Wrong, LaLa. A married couple may file jointly or as "married filing separately", but NOT as single. There are special rules for "married filing separately." If one spouse itemizes, the other MUST itemize or lose the standard deduction – a definite financial disadvantage. The IRS does not like marrieds filing separately and discourages it in every way possible.

    Why does this not surprise me? The person who wants to tell everyone how they are not liberal enough, that wants to tell us all how to live our lives, is married and doesn't know it. She's dumber than Pelosi.

      Clearly. What this country needs is conservatives running our lives for us: telling us who to marry, what to believe, what god we worship, what we can or can’t do in the bedroom, making decisions about our bodies for us. That’s what we need, right? *rolls eyes*

    I call Bullsh**..... even in Vegas, you need to get a marriage license before you can wed. Even if it is from a cab in a drive-thru. Pathetic stab at free publicity.

      Actually about 20 or so years ago the Chapels could issue the marriage certificate and the courts would mail the marriage license....now Vegas is like most other places where you have to apply for the license and then you can do the rest.

    No Mike. Married couples don't have to file jointly. And to you Jesse: it appears nothing she said would influence you anyway. I'm sure no one could teach you to spell either. So tune Rush back in–he's a real pillar of morality. Ask any of his divorce attornies, ex-wives, or drug dealers. Janeane and Rush both claim to be comics; the only difference being that Rush can't stand up.

    "liberal spoke-person" Wow, I bet she doesn't know about that either. Get back to me when someone introduces legislation based on one of her jokes instead of Limbaugh's.

    Here is a prime example of a washed up celebrity releasing something to the tabloids to get his/her name back in the public. The reality is, nobody cares.

    And she is the liberal spoke-person who constantly spews off at the mouth. And people actually listen to her, but somehow she wasn't smart enough to know if you get married, it means you are in fact married. Typical

      She's the liberal spokesperson? did the liberals get together and appoint her or something then? all those in favour say aye?

      A right winger whining that there is something wrong with having an opinion that isn't cleared with Rush Limbaugh. Reactionary talk radio crybabies are the de facto leaders of what's become the GOP base.

      Applying your logic I would like to ask that you reign in your conservative spokes-person. I'm sick of seeing Larry the Cable Guy everywhere hocking everything.

      She's not a lesbian. She just has dark hair and glasses. You can tell because of that part where it doesn't mention anywhere in the article that she is a lesbian, because you and I know that CNN would have mentioned that, like, 20 times in the article if there was ever a hint of that.

    Their tax returns were all filed wrong, and for some years they would owe more money in total as married people (the so-called "marriage penalty"). They might both be heading to the pokey for tax fraud.

      A married couple can choose to file jointly or each can file as singles. They didn't have to acknowledge one another on their returns.

      Fraud requires intent. If they didn't know they there could be no fraud.

      @LaLa – No, if you're married you can file either as Married filing jointly or Married filing separately. You cannot file as Single if you're married. Trust me on this.

      LaLa - "A married couple can choose to file jointly or each can file as singles. They didn't have to acknowledge one another on their returns."

      Incorrect. Married Filing Separately SPECIFICALLY requires that you file as such (not Single, as Garofalo probably did) AND IT REQUIRES YOU TO PUT YOUR SPOUSE'S NAME AND SOCIAL SECURITY NUMBER ON THE RETURN.

      You're a prime example, LaLa, of what's wrong with this country and this world. Surrounded by access to more information that at any time and history and yet completely ignorant AND utterly sure that you're correct when you're clearly not.

      They'd likely only get in trouble if they didn't go back and file amended returns as "Married, filing separately"
