Join Terry Sweeney on his bumpy joyride through a cra-cra world that
could tie anyone’s bowels in a knot. Sweeney peoples his pages with everyone from the certifiably insane to the irritatingly clueless and manages to speak out against the many petty tyrants that walk all over us all ever day.
Terry Sweeney joined the cast of Saturday Night Live as a writer/performer and there, became famous for imitating First Lady Nancy Reagan, and also made history as the first openly gay performer on American Television. After SNL, he continued to write screenplays and television in Hollywood and guest starred on many sitcoms including Seinfeld. This marks his first collection of humorous essays.
Terry was the first openly gay cast member of SNL back in the 80’s, co-wrote the movie Shag, appeared on Seinfeld, and wrote and produced MadTV.
His new book, “Irritable Bowels and the People Who Give You Them,” is a collection of autobiographical essays-just the funny stories-from his parents, first jobs, jobs in Hollywood and all the other people who gave him irritable bowels.
A book singing is scheduled for Jan. 19 at Lulu Burgess on King Street between noon and 1 p.m.
