Julia Sweeney is best known as the iconic androgynous character Pat on Saturday Night Live running from 1990 to 1994. What you may or may not know is that she’s also an extremely successful “monologist,” voiceover actress and writer for shows such as Sex and the City and Desperate Housewives to name only a few.
We recently had the pleasure of speaking with Ms. Sweeney after a discussion about her new book “If It’s Not One Thing, It’s Your Mother’ (in stores now) with comedian Judy Gold at the wonderful 92Y in New York (visit www.92y.org for upcoming shows) and she told us some things we definitely didn’t know. Listen to the interview below to find out how she became good friends with Quentin Tarantino, how she flunked her first improv class, how she’s an independent film buff and much more.
Thanks to Ms. Sweeney for being so wonderful and gracious with her time to speak with us and thanks to 92Y for hosting the event.
