The always hilarious Ms. Garofalo (who we just learned was initially supposed to "Monica" on Friends) brings her sharp wit to Littlefield tonight, where she'll be doing her thing alongside Eugene Mirman, Jon Glaser, Heather Lawless and Amy Schumer at a benefit for Brooklyn Free Space, a cooperative pre-school in Park Slope.
