If you missed this hilarious and thoughtful show during its two-show run in the spring, here’s your chance…A one-man show from Boston’s comedy legend! Produced by Scamps Comedy Productions.
Steve Sweeney: Townie. Comedian/actor Steve Sweeney’s keen dialect and character skills have made him a key figure in Boston’s cultural landscape. Sweeney was raised in hard-scrabble, colorful Charlestown, and has carried its influences with him through a career that’s included nearly 25 films, national television appearances, radio hosting, and thousands of nights headlining Boston’s best comedy clubs. In his one-man show, he regales his audiences with stories from his life-long journey, to the backdrop of neighborhoods, the old Boston Theater District, and other landmarks.
Sweeney 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. His 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.)
Bad news and good! Kate Nee, scheduled to open for Steve Sweeney: Townie, had to cancel her spot but we were able to replace her with Dave Rattigan. Dave is a friend of Steve Sweeneys and frequent opener for the one-man show, in addition to headlining shows around New England.
In addition to comedy clubs and theaters, including the 2,100-seat Cape Cod Melody Tent (opening for The Beach Boys) Boston comedian Dave Rattigan has performed at bowling alleys, coffeehouses, shopping mall food courts, hospitals, libraries, in the lobby of an office, a loading dock and a fishing dock. His CD (Dave Rattigan: Thinks He’s Funny) received airplay on Sirius satellite radio and other stations and podcasts, and his video clips run on NickMom.com and RooftopComedy.com. He’s made three appearances on the syndicated Steve Katsos Show, and lent his voice to the animated Drill Booth, scheduled to debut in 2018. He owns Scamps Comedy Productions, which has helped good causes raise more than $1.5 million, and runs the Eastern Mass. and Cape Cod branches of Funny 4 Funds, which has helped organizations raise more than $3 million..
