Julia Sweeney

Julia Sweeney came to national attention with Saturday Night Live and her Pat segment even spawning a feature film about the androgynous character. Afterwards she created three autobiographical monologues that she performed in various settings, God Said Ha! ( her brother and her battling cancer), In a Family Way (adopting her Chinese daughter Mulan), and Letting Go of God (her becoming an atheist).

She served as a consultant on two television shows with gay followings, Sex and the City and Desperate Housewives and recently voiced the character of Sherry Squibbles in the hit cartoon Monsters University.

Sweeney met “I Kissed a Girl” Jill Sobule at Technology Entertainment and Design conference and have now created a touring show called Jill and Julia. Nunn on the Run talked to her directly after the duo’s show at City Winery recently.

Jerry Nunn: Hi, Julia. Are you originally from Wilmette, Illinois?

Julia Sweeney: No, I am from Spokane, Washington. I only moved to Wilmette four years ago. I had never even heard of Wilmette before that.

JN: How did that happen?
