Saturday Night Live’s – (Pat!) Julia Sweeney & Singer Jill Sobule – SOLD OUT

The NY Times “…brilliant, topical, funny and more than a little poignant.“
Singer/Songwriter Jill Sobule and the infamous SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE comedian (PAT!) Julia Sweeney, team up for a delightful show that mixes witty songwriting with a little bit of social commentary.
The Jill and Julia Show is a delightful, poignant, yet wildly entertaining mash-up of music, comedy, improvisation and monologues. The one-of-a-kind performance revolves around embedding Julia’s stories into songs of Jill’s that share a common theme, creating a sum greater than the individual parts. Their debut show at the world renowned TED conference in 2007 has grown into a monthly residency in and around Chicago and is currently touring nationwide.
JULIA SWEENEY: Star of Saturday Night Live (Pat!) and her powerful solo shows, continues to carve out her own territory in entertainment, one that moves between the personal and political, controversial and comical. As a solo performer, comic actor Julia Sweeney explores love, cancer, family and faith. Her recent one-woman, autobiographical show “Letting Go of God” delved into such emotional, powerful stuff as living through cancer and leaving behind a life-long Catholic faith. The Showtime Network has subsequently turned it into a movie.
Jill Sobule, returns to Lannie’s after her sold out solo shows, 3 years running. She isn’t just another singer-songwriter with catchy tunes and smart lyrics; she’s one of the more insightful satirists of our age and hilarious as all get out. Clever, witty and brilliantly funny. Each of her fanciful songs captures an issue or irony, an emotion or epiphany that helps one to understand what it’s like to live now. Jill Sobule’s work is at once deeply personal and socially conscious, seriously funny and derisively tragic. Over seven albums and a decade of recording, Jill has mused on topics such as the death penalty, anorexia, shoplifting, reproduction, the French resistance movement, adolescence and the Christian Right.
Lannie’s is grateful that this acclaimed power duo chose our intimate little club as one of their stops in a tour of larger venues!
“Jill Sobule can claim her place among the stellar New York singer-songwriters of the last decade…grown-up music for an adolescent age.” - The New York Times
