Description   [from Freebase]

Julia Anne Sweeney (born October 10, 1959) is an American actress, comedian and author best known as a cast member on Saturday Night Live and for her autobiographical solo shows. Sweeney was born in Spokane, Washington, the daughter of Jeri, a homemaker, and Robert M. Sweeney, an attorney and federal prosecutor, who made an appearance in her movie It's Pat as a priest. The oldest of five children, she was raised in Spokane, and quickly found a talent for imitating voices and inventing characters. Despite successful appearances in high school plays, she decided to put acting aside to pursue economic studies at the University of Washington where she became a member of Delta Gamma sorority. After graduation, Sweeney moved to Los Angeles where she worked at various odd jobs, and as an accountant for Columbia Pictures and United Artists, before turning her attentions again to acting. She is now married to scientist Michael Blum. Blum and Sweeney, along with their adopted daughter Mulan, relocated to the Chicago suburbs in early 2009.
