She's funny, unforgiving, and letting it all out in her new Showtime featured one woman show Letting Go of God. She is Julia Sweeney and for years has been known as a hysterical stand up comedian, writer and of course Pat on Saturday Night Live. Her new venture has been described as a "Searing and bracingly funny solo show."
Letting Go of God is Julia Sweeney's most ambitious monologue to date, work shopping the show for four years at various comedy clubs around Los Angeles. The hilarious show chronicles her journey from believing in God to letting go of the whole idea of God and then her many struggles to find Him along the way. She rejoined the Catholic Church (the faith in which she was happily raised), she studied Buddhism, she trekked to monasteries in the Himalayas and she embraced the New Age ideas of Deepak Chopra and finally discovered science and the scientific method. Something she didn't even realize she had missed! A long and winding road with lots of laughs along the way.
