From 'Saturday Night Live' to the Conference on World Affairs with Julia Sweeney

Wednesday, April 07, 2010

Long time fans of Saturday Night Live will surely remember the androgynous character with the nasal voice and grating chortle, known simply and ambiguously as Pat. The actress/writer/comedienne behind that iconic 1990s character, Julia Sweeney, has gotten herself into some interesting projects since she left the late night sketch show.

She reflects on the changing times, and offers her witty insights on some new challenges she's undertaking, including parenting. 

And yes, she agrees to speak with the voice of Pat for The Takeaway, but not long enough to get awkward on-air.
