Actress JANEANE GAROFALO Tries To Paint Like BOB ROSS | The Bob Ross Challenge


– My name is Janeane
Garofalo, and some people might know me from the ’90s. That’s why most people
think I’ve passed away. But my artistic background
is one of desire. I have sketchbooks. It’s just a lot of deer,
dog faces, bear paws, eyeballs, and at times
I go through magazines and draw my dream eyebrows
and things on people ’cause I have (bleep) eyebrows. I’m sorry, I have- I don’t like that kind of talk! My eyebrows are my
Waterloo, put it that way. – [Bob] Welcome back, certainly
glad to see you again. And let’s start in here. – I have no muscle tone at all. When I was in my 20s and
30s, I would go to the gym, just purely for punishment. But what I do enjoy doing is walking extremely fast everyday. So the kind of exercise
I like to do is walking really fast from point A to point B. ’cause I don’t like to exercise formally. I feel like my sky is not
exactly the right color. – [Micah] Yeah, you
shake, yeah, definitely. – [Bob] You can just
beat the devil out of it. There we go. – [Micah] And you can
beat it too, obviously. – He said make sure it’s dry. Boy, have I screwed this up. This is the simplest of things and I have screwed it up. (grunting) Oh, Bob. Mother! – [Micah] Yes! That was the wrong choice. I’m gonna have to go my own way now. – [Cameraman] What do you think is, like, the quintessential Janeane Garafalo- – Oh, I don’t think of myself that way. I’m just saying, like, it
was incredibly enjoyable to work with Gary
Shandling and to meet idols like Albert Brooks and Catherine O’Hara and Carol Burnette, Tim Conway. I have totally not even- I’ve missed the whole tree and I’m trying to think,
how can one salvage it? And how can one appropriate
what he is doing and make it something that’s interesting? ‘Cause I feel like I can only
become an appropriation artist at this point. – [Micah] You and Odenkirk
have done a lot of- – Yes, we were on “The Ben
Stiller” show together, “The Larry Sanders” show together, and we’ve done stand up together. Yeah, he’s one of my faves. I’m so thrilled he’s had all that success. He deserves it. And also in real quality stuff. It’s lucky that he gets to
“cover his nut,” so to speak, with quality. (screaming) I just blew it. I’ve blown it eight ways to Sunday. Now this looks like, kind of like a man in
motion, oddly, than a tree. Or like, Bigfoot when he’s
looking around over his shoulder. Alex Jones talks about that. Bigfoot, the Jersey Devil,
they were all involved in- President Kennedy was stabbed, right? – [Micah] Yeah, stabbed with a- – A Harry Hanzo sword. I don’t know what accent that was. He was stabbed by “The Crazy 88.” – [Micah] He was stabbed so hard that his head exploded. – Oh, are we done? Ah, man. – [Micah] Oh, I’m sorry! – No, I didn’t even- This is… No disrespect to Bob, but I’m gonna have to
make this more abstract. What it needs is, oh I know! Can I use the tip of this? – [Cameraman] That would
make such a satisfying sound. (popping) – And I’m leaving this on my
hands, ’cause it makes me look- I used to visit friends at RISD, and I used to envy, like, “Oh, look at them having a beer and they’ve got paint all over them.” – It just seems like, now they
understand what’s going on. From the first day of
school, kindergarten, I distinctly remember that
the first time roll call, Jane Ann Garfalo, which
is how people have been mispronouncing it ever since. And I never corrected it,
’cause it doesn’t bother me. But that’s the first time I
ever heard Jane Ann Garfalo. ‘Cause I was supposed to be Robert, ’cause they thought I was gonna be a boy. And then it was gonna be Roberta. And then my mom’s nurse
name was Janine, luckily and, no offense to anyone named Roberta, but Roberta Garafalo’s a bit unweildy. So, my mom didn’t know how to spell it, so she spelled it J-a-n-e-a-n-e, which I guess looks like Jane Ann. Well, there we have it. (laughter) Bob Ross is a boss.
