Garofalo currently works as a talk show host on Air America Radio. She earned two Emmy nominations for her performance as Paula in "The Larry Sanders Show" on HBO, and is due on U.S. theater screens in director Marc Forster's upcoming feature "Stay."
In "All In," she will play a single mom who plays poker professionally in Las Vegas.
