Review
Comic Julia Sweeney performs her insightful and hilarious memoir about family, parenting, and coping with the baggage of past and present relationships. Her vocal performance embraces the triumphs, tragedies, and joys that unfolded as her life evolved from "Saturday Night Live" to motherhood in suburbia. She delivers her adventures with humor, providing unique perspectives on the absurdities of romance, mother-daughter relationships, pets, nannies, schools, the adoption process, and coping. Her comedic flair ranges from deft accents to tour-de-force caricatures. The chapters flow like those of a novel--each one peppered with Sweeney's acerbic wit and edgy take on her new life. A.W.
