Former Saturday Night Live cast member Julia Sweeney is known for both her infamous character “Pat” and her solo performances. Since her days on SNL, she’s toured as a one woman show exploring love, cancer, family and faith in “God Said Ha!,” “In the Family Way” and “Letting Go of God.” In her most recent book,  “If It’s Not One Thing, It’s Your Mother,” she confronts parenting and what it was like for her as a single woman to adopt her daughter, Mulan. This hour on Focus, we’re listening back to a conversation she had with Jim Meadows about the book and the embroidered pillow that inspired it. 

We also talk with her about “Pat” and her career as a comedian and performer.
