Boston, it's often said, is a city of neighborhoods. So is Steve Sweeney's mind. 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. "Everywhere I go with him," says John Conlon, associate chairman of the performing arts department at UMass Boston, "people seem to know him. They respond to him not only because he's funny, but because his characters combine all sorts of types we're all familiar with across the entire spectrum of Boston life." Read more on Last.fm.
