Janeane Garafalo Married For 20 Years But Didn’t Know It

What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas – and in the case of comedienne Janeane Garofalo, that includes your memories… and your marriage.  Garofalo apparently got married roughly 20 years ago during a drunken Las Vegas gag.  Only she had no recollection that the marriage was the real deal until this month.  She explained at a New York Comedy Festival reunion for “The Ben Stiller Show” that she married a writer on the series — Rob Cohen, who went on to produce “The Big Bang Theory” — in Las Vegas as a joke in the 1990s, and didn’t realize the nuptials had stuck.  She added, “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.”

***MARLAR: Divorcing spouses get half of everything, which might explain why Garofalo has only been half as funny the past twenty years.
