The Cabot is pleased to host the North Shore Premiere of Steve Sweeney’s star-studded film Sweeney Killing Sweeney with a private reception for Cabot Club members at 6 p.m. and a Q&A with Steve Sweeney and others to follow the film.

Aging Boston stand-up comic Sweeney, “The Character King,” gets an opportunity to do a national cable show out of Los Angeles. The only caveat is that Sweeney must drop the locally referenced material from his act, the biggest pieces being the portrayal of his colorful Boston characters that have become a staple of his home field success. Sweeney makes the hard decision to stop doing the characters. But, to his dismay, the characters come-to-life and seek their revenge by trying to kill Sweeney.

The film stars Steve Sweeney and a bevy of national and Boston stand-up stars including Steven Wright, Lenny Clarke, Bobby Slayton, Nick DiPaolo, Jonathan Katz, Tony V., Frank Santorelli and Chris Tabb, and also features Jordan Tofalo,  Michael Southworth and Alin Halajian. It was directed by Lisa Aimola, written by Bill Braudis (Dr. Katz, Professional Therapist; Home Movies), and produced by Wizard King Productions.

This North Shore premiere is produced by Wizard King, The Cabot, Scamps Comedy Productions and John Tobin Presents.
