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

If It’s Not One Thing, It’s Your Mother

I wrote this book several years ago.

I think the audio version is the best way to experience this piece.

God Said Ha!

This is my first one-person show.

It’s about my brother and I having cancer at the same time, and our parents moving in to “help.”

I performed this show on Broadway at the Lyceum Theater.  There’s a film version, and audio.  The audio was nominated for a Grammy.

It’s Pat

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.

The Groundlings

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.
