Sweeney History


Steve Sweeney

During the early 70's, in the beginning days of comedy clubs as we know them today, a small group of Boston 'would-be' comedians joined together in a back street Chinese restaurant off Inman Square, in Cambridge, Ma. - the now famous Ding-Ho. This group included such unknowns as Lenny Clark, Kevin Meaney, Jay Leno, Bobcat Goldwaithe, Steven Wright, Don Gavin, and of course, Steve Sweeney.

Known for his use of dialects and great insight into the New England political scene, Steve Sweeney has been performing to sold out crowds from day one. The first of the Boston super-stars t o break into television, Steve was the star of "Park Street Under", a very successful Boston based sit-com.

He has been a regular on all the Major TV shows, David Letterman, Jay Leno, Evening at The Improv, HBO, Caroline's, The Cam Neely - Dennis Leary COMICS COME HOME SPECIAL and many others! Many will recognize Steve from his many featured roles in films such as Rodney Dangerfield's BACK TO SCHOOL, CELTIC PRIDE, BRASS RING, ENOUGH ALL READY,NEXT STOP WONDERLAND, SOMETHING ABOUT MARY or SOUTHIE.
