Steve Sweeney performed this hilarious multi-media show for the first time at The Cabot in September 2016 and returns with a retrospective of stories and observations from a fascinating one-man journey that started in Charlestown and has brought him into contact with some of the biggest names in sports, politics, and show business.

Born in Charlestown, Steve Sweeney is a legendary Boston comedian known as a master of dialects and character voices. With his famous Boston accent and great insight into human nature, Steve is so thoroughly Bostonian that he merits his own stop on the MBTA Green Line.

Steve learned his craft at the world famous Ding Ho Comedy Club, where he performed with Lenny Clarke, Denis Leary, Jay Leno and others. Well-rounded and seasoned, Steve has kept audiences laughing for years. He won his status, the old-fashioned way – he earned it!

He has been a featured on major television shows including David Letterman, Evening at the Improv, Comics Come Home and Comedy Central and starred in his own Boston-based sitcom, Park Street Under.

Steve’s trademark political satire has earned him top host spots on Boston radio stations 100.7FM WZLX (Sweeney’s Neighborhood) and 95.9FM WATD (Jay Mohr and Opie & Anthony.) In addition, Steve is an elite Master of Ceremonies selected by many charitable and political organizations (of both parties, but separately, of course!)

Steve is a successful actor and has appeared in many Hollywood films, which include: The Forger [2014], The Equalizer [2014], Me, Myself & Irene [2000], There’s Something About Mary [1998], Next Stop Wonderland [1998], Southie [1998], Celtic Pride [1996] and Back to School [1986].

Steve lives just outside his hometown of Boston and when not working loves to spend quiet time with his dog and friends.

This show will also feature comedian Mark Scalia.  Since starting his standup career in Boston in the early nineties, Scalia has developed into a strong internationally known headliner act.  Mark has entertained thousands of people across the United States and Canada at major comedy clubs, numerous colleges and universities and at other events.  In Boston, he regularly headlines at Nick’s Comedy Stop, Tommy’s and other clubs.  He’s also busy as an actor on theatrical stages, on television and in films. A two-time semi-finalist in the Boston Comedy Riots, he has also performed at The Boston International Comedy Festival, The Seattle Comedy Festival and The New Orleans Comedy Festival.

This show is presented by The Cabot and Scamps Comedy Productions.
