Julia Sweeney: Letting Go Of God

Remembered as a comedian on Saturday Night Live, Julia Sweeney developed a monologue after her brother Michael was diagnosed with lymphoma, and she found herself with uterine cancer. She crafted it into a stage show, God Said Ha!, debuting at San Francisco's Magic Theater in 1995. Letting Go of God is her third monologue. In it she makes hilarious remarks on her Catholic upbringing and some Mormon missionary youths whom she invited into her home. The part below covers that segment of the monologue.

This link takes you to the other segments, done when she was younger.

Some other features of her resumé: Sweeney appeared in Pulp Fiction, Clock Stoppers, Whatever It Takes, and Stuart Little. On prime time television she was a series regular on George & Leo and Maybe It's Me. She guest-starred on 3rd Rock from the Sun, Hope & Gloria, Mad About You, and According to Jim. In 2004, Sweeney co-starred in two episodes of Frasier (as Frasier's litigious unwanted house guest, Ann) and had a guest role on Sex and the City.
