Terry Sweeny Cover

S1 E7 – Terry Sweeney – Saturday Night Live alum, author and actor joins Lynda from Los Angeles in this fun-filled episode. Terry, who spends time between his home in Beaufort, S.C. and the west coast, is a pioneering writer and gifted comic actor. Terry was a cast member on Saturday Night Live and became famous for his classic impression of Nancy Reagan. He made history as the first openly gay performer on American television. Shortly after he left SNL, Jerry Seinfeld and Larry David hired him to tussle over a tennis racket with Elaine on Seinfeld. Terry has written for Mad TV and he co-wrote the screenplay for the cult Southern film “Shag.’’ Most recently, he starred in his first dramatic role in the FX true crime series, The Assassination of Gianni Versace. In this episode, Terry Sweeney takes us behind the curtain at SNL, sharing how he got his foot in the door there. He talks about his comic memoir – Irritable Bowels and the People Who Give You Them and about how the way starting over can be the catalyst to great things.
