Info: Sweeney started out as an accountant for Columbia Pictures and United Artists when she enrolled in classes with the improvisational comedy troupe The Groundlings. She was later chosen to be part of the troupe's Sunday Company.

She began developing characters including Mea Culpa, the title character of Mea's Big Apology, and the androgynous Pat, whose impossible-to-determine gender was the basis for Sweeney's popular It's Pat! skits on Saturday Night Live. She later released a feature film of the same name.

At a Groundlings performance in 1989, Saturday Night Live (SNL) producer Lorne Michaels discovered Sweeney and offered her a spot as one of SNL's featured players. Sweeney has created and performed three autobiographical monologues, God Said Ha!, In the Family Way, and Letting Go of God.
