I filmed my last one-person show, Older & Wider, in Spokane, Washington, on March 26, 2022.
It will be available sometime in the future.
For the time being, I’m no longer performing on the stage.
I am unavailable for podcasts and interviews.
Older & Wider
“Julia Sweeney is Older & Wider and really, really (really) funny. She remains a full-throttled charmer with the observational skills of Proust.” — Los Angeles Times, reviewed by F. Kathleen Foley
“In Julia Sweeney’s ‘Older & Wider’ the SNL Alum bares her comedy chops and shows they are as sharp as ever. In the parlance of ‘the Biz’ She Slew, She Killed, She Put It Over.” — Broadway World, reviewed by Bobby Patrick
“Julia Sweeney is ‘Older & Wider’ maybe, but funnier and wiser for sure. She puts you in mind of monologists like Spaulding Grey, minus the ego.” — The Chicago Tribune, reviewed by Chris Jones
Pat was a character I did on Saturday Night Live. We made a movie based on the character called “It’s Pat!” It got dismal reviews and everyone seems to hate it. However, some people like it. I am one of them.
When I began taking classes at The Groundlings, in 1984, I was an accountant at Columbia Pictures with no clear intention of being an actress. But I quickly discovered that The Groundlings would be my Hollywood home.
I co-wrote a play called “Mea’s Big Apology.” I starred in it. It was popular and got good reviews.
