With such monologues as God Said Ha!, Julia Sweeney has managed to turn tragedy into art, and even found the saving grace of dark humor amid deep despair. Tonight, the comedian and Saturday Night Live alum returns to her early home base with the Groundlings and turns her attention to the #MeToo and #TimesUp movements. Perhaps it's fitting that Sweeney, who once portrayed Pat, a character of indeterminate gender, will put her own spin on the battle against sexual harassment as she workshops a new show that she's archly titled I, as Well. "I will try out stories, jokes, themes, musings. Lots of it won't work. But some of it will," Sweeney promises.
