Dubbed by one admirer “the undisputed King of Boston comedy,” Sweeney embodies, almost literally, the city he calls home. A master of dialects and character voices, Sweeney can riff on everyone from Dorchester church ladies to Beacon Hill pols to certain radio personalities who seem a little too old to be peddling rock and roll to younger generations. In fact, while Sweeney has played to national audiences many times throughout his thirty-year career – not only by touring as a stand-up but also through roles in sitcoms and movies – he is so thoroughly Bostonian that he merits his own stop on the Freedom Trail.
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 to break into television, Steve was the star of Park Street Under, a very successful Boston based sitcom. He has been a regular on all the major TV shows, David Letterman, Evening at the Improv, HBO, Caroline's, The Cam Neely - Dennis Leary Comics Come Home Special and many others! Many will recognize Steve from one of many featured roles in films such as Rodney Dangerfield's Back to School, Celtic Pride, Brass Ring, Enough All Ready, Next Stop Wonderland, Southie, Something About Mary and "Me, Myself & Irene" with Jim Carey. Steves most recent movie appearance is a role in the Peter Farrelly film “The Greatest Beer Run Ever”. Steve and Joe Malone, the former Treasurer of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, co-host a podcast called "Sweeney and Malone" on Boston Herald Radio. Steve continues to keep audiences laughing through the years, maintaining his status as New England's top comic.
