Fox Presents Julia Sweeney: Older and Wider

Fox Presents Julia Sweeney: Older and Wider

Fresh from her highly successful run at Chicago’s The Second City, Julia Sweeney is bringing her first-ever stand-up show to Martin Woldson Theater at The Fox. Called “a consummate storyteller with exquisite comic timing” by Variety, Julia Sweeney is a writer, actor, comedian, director, and monologist. JULIA SWEENEY'S WEBSITE

“I’d always considered myself a comedic monologist,” says Sweeney, “but it occurred to me that I was so close to doing stand-up that I should just take that step...My show is observational and strewn with funny stories. I’m older and yes, a wee bit wider, but I think you’ll laugh and have a good time.”

Perhaps most recognized as a Saturday Night Live cast member from 1990 to 1995, Sweeney created and popularized the androgynous character “Pat.” Her comedic and dramatic monologues include her Grammy Award-nominated God Said Ha!In the Family Way (ultimately developed into a memoir, If It's Not One Thing, It's Your Mother) and Letting Go of God
