"julia sweeney" Discussed on Bullseye with Jesse Thorn

"Comic actor and writer is starring in the TV shows work in progress and shrill which are airing on showtime and Hulu respectively She's being interviewed by Kerry poppy the host of the podcast Ono Rawson carry let's get back into the conversation. Juliette is perhaps best known for her work on Saturday night live in the early nineteen nineties. Her most recognizable character from that time was pat as shy insecure person who's sparks confusion in most people they meet due to their androgynous appearance. In recent years, there's been more of a criticism of the character actor. Abby mcenaney was one of those people who didn't care for pats she. Created the TV series work in progress and wrote a fictionalized version of Julia into the show where she would meet and be confronted by a fictionalized version. Of Abbey, in this clip, abby is on a date at a restaurant when she sees Julia Abby is overcome with anxiety about confronting her and passes out at the restaurant when she comes to, she enjoys meet and talk about path. To think, maybe you should have some water. It's mostly water. Well. Again I'm so sorry you know you don't have to be sorry we're good now I feel I feel Darabi just it's so weird to meet you in real life and be with you. You're caretake. PAT which is part of my life for so long and and pretty badly. So it's just Oh God let. People. Suck Yeah. They do. I'm so sorry, I'm fine with it. I'm not fine with it I feel terrible I didn't mean it to be mean I think I was really naive. And now I'm like use. You mean. ooh. Man. So how were you approached about this project? Was it already on the page or was it a conversation? It was just a conversation abby came to my I was working on a one person show in Chicago at second city and I was doing shows every Sunday night and she came to the show and we met and I love journalists so early and she told me that she had also done a one person show about her life and her friend Tim who is with her at my show I was still being sorta some vignettes from it. It wasn't even a pilot than it was just like, okay. Here's the scene. They just kind of describe the scene. And I was like, okay, I'll do it and they were so happy loosely I mean to me I just remember how much we all bonded. We had such a similar point of view about everything anyway we still not seen. They filmed other scenes they cut it together. It became a PRI-. I. They were saying it was going to be websites when I shot it I thought it was just going to be a website or something I didn't allow even understand. Then, they submitted sundance at the end and which isn't crazy crazy. 'cause they you know they take pilots now but only twelve and so I went to Sundance and I think. Only, account was on board by then and. We pounded the pavement because I was the only name inet you know and I got some attention and the the main thing is the show itself is so good. I mean, they actually didn't need me or anybody I mean the show so got an. Yes should turn on it so That's what I kind of ended up an executive producer on it, but because I was there at the beginning. That's amazing. So you are making a web series and you end up at Sundance as an EP showtime. Major I know. It was really. Amazing it was amazing I'm so proud of that show because I love Abbie I. Think it's really different show. It's like I think it's the it's just what I know of that of the. Gay Community. It's it rings true to me from my own experience and from Abby, and her friends and. And compared to. A. Lot of other gay-themed shows it seems. Like. So, much more real. And I'm I just I'm so proud to be associated with it and I have a little part in and you know I'm an executive producer for. Title I. I really just kind of happy to be around it. That's like a Hollywood story that on las never happens. And it's just I'm just so happy that happened to Abbey and I'm so happy that it happened to me. Yet strikes me as I mean a little bit brave I'm sorry used the word but little brave to sort of face your the criticism of your own character head on in that way. From me was an opportunity because I started hearing the grumblings about pat and I of course I thought really defensive and I'm still somewhat defensive because People misunderstood the character, but I also think. I misunderstood the community also like I get everything that negative that I've read except for when people think I was trying to. Humiliate people who were drowsiness. That's absolutely not what I was doing that. That is completely not what I was trying to do in any way but I. But I would say of all the criticism I've read I just read it and think I agree with you a hundred percent. I totally agree. And in a way though it's such, a wonderful sign of America has changed. Is Kinda like. Actually just read this in a note is going through right my I'm a big journal writer as going through one of looking for stand up ideas for something last week, and I saw thing that Michael had said to my husband Michael saying the Dave Pat is not funny at all is the day that America has finally grown up. Which is true. That's absolutely true and I thought such a good insight it the fact that it was so popular shows you. The problem. I. Mean Fair enough. It's just it's very modest of you to see it that way well. I mean part of it was that I was trying to do something that no one realizes is during two because to me pat isn't non binary. Is Male or female, but is oblivious to how pat comes off to other people. That's what I thought. The joke was so to me, that was funny. I actually still think that's funny. But and then the,.

"That's funny. But also get some of your own tradition. Reflected back to you because it is seventy percent. You know, what's funny? I realize even in our whole conversation religion has a lot. And this is true. I think for most people, but I'm just saying it has a lot to do with sex. Oh, my, you know, a sex because called comedy sex God because God and sex were so intertwined, I know, but I feel like for me God and sex more intertwined it all like I didn't have guilt about having sex when I had sex. I never felt guilty about sex. Sure. I know. No. I know there are parts of me that I guess, I don't know. I miss them. One of your super didn't think I want to do something. But I'm not doing it. Because God doesn't want me to do that. I never thought that. I thought oh this guys cute. And now we should have sex with each other or not have sex with each other. Or maybe he doesn't like me. But God I didn't have God mixed in with that. That was never. But I meet a lot of people who've left God, it was like I want I couldn't not have sex before marriage all these normal things. Like, I think that's just human. But for so that was I've met a lot of people who stop believing me and God because they wanted to do things that somehow God was keeping them from having sex doing drugs, or whatever being this life that God was keeping my my God never didn't want me to do everything. My God was like a nice uncool who just enjoyed me. And just had good laughs over my travails the groundlings and on the goal like older ongoing there on God's like is it the beard, I can shape. I go God he should die your beard. Because you'll get a lot more word big. Although there is Santa Claus. Once a year. Is it worth it one month of work? Okay. Wonderful wonderful at a great time.

"I don't care anyway. That was my first thought oh my God. So funny. So so so. Genders, pat. I'm just getting why don't you ask your crashing question? Okay. When your character goes also, I wanna give you another compliment. I love that your character. The character Pete Holmes, isn't okay comic. But not great. It's great. Because when I first that I was so happy when I saw you because I thought wow. Is this guy who's really not that great of a up, but he's a wonderful story. Like, he like the show is so great. Oh, you thought me. Yes. Yeah. Then because I watched the show then I saw you. And it's like, you're so brilliant, and all my God Largo last week when I saw that thing that you said that you might gonna release that. And also just how you talked about it afterwards with me with so just saying that you were floating air that you were getting from the audience my God that was just a wonderful incredible way to think about doesn't know if they're better the shows better. I said it to them that night. Sometimes you're a part of a bad audience right now. Great. Yeah. Go. No. I think we're bad. No. I know I. Anyway, all the experiences, but I love that so much, but seeing how brilliant you are which I really do. You're just my favorites. I can tell you. Okay. To know that you are. So crafting the level of comedy that your character. Pete Holmes is doing on crashing is very interesting to me. And I really applaud you for not being funnier. Like, you're really just about as as funny as that. Character should be you also can't get into the cellar. Like, you be great. You can't be you. You would be getting all those places. That's right. Yeah. That's one of my proudest achievements. Is that we did a sad and wrote us out and old material. That was funny enough to get laughs. Right. Not funny enough to get into this. I was very proud of that. Oh my God. That was so great. It was really pleased. And also the guy I want what's his name eighteen year old. What about when you go? How old are you eight teen? And I think he said I'm like, I'm thirty two or something and it was got. Okay. I didn't get hit me. Okay. When you go to the synagogue, and you're explaining your relationship to cat how you met cat to these guys we had sex two times. I was crazy way. I totally didn't understand their response. And then going to the rabbi I didn't understand like didn't understand why they were because at first I thought they'd be like, yeah. Or are we trading? But then they were like, I didn't understand their point of view because I thought if they're really religious just be completely outraged by it. But I didn't get well, they're not they're not. They're not right. Didn't. Yes. I didn't get these seemed like it was being played that they were uncomfortable with it. And I didn't know why like you should talk to a rabbi like why was he did not understand any of that part? There's a by the term by. TV writers say there's a buy in. Okay. Something the audience has to buy into it was tricky for us to pull off. Right. And when I watched I thought we did as well as we could. But you're absolutely right. So it's a very good kind of area because it's tricky kind of like, okay. Yeah. We were trying to have the audience by that the Alon one of the commerce knows that Pete is religious and that he's quote, not that kinda guy. So we wanted for the story's sake him to represent back to Pete literally the idea, I think you're a little lost. Meaning anyone else tells me the story great?.

"Just like this dog into something. That's like I'm God. And chain would be like not God, you're my mind. He would talk back to what any shaman throughout history would be like that's a ten out of ten mystical experience. And he would go in like you and be like this is a necessary right animal needs this like it needs a capacity to imagine. And all the seven I'm being overwhelmed by my senses. But I'm not buying it. And there's something about what we're talking about free one taking LSD and going with your belief. I'm not saying you're wrong. Maybe you could tell wrong, I'm not saying don't feel like you can't sometimes feel like you find what you're looking for. But that that sounds like truth isn't real. Well, that's well, we definitely gravitate towards things that we want or expect to be true. I mean that's around as one of our big biases. And I'm a huge. Yeah. Yeah. That hard. Yeah. So I take something like that. And I go I'm gonna meet God. And I do and then I'm like, okay, come back. But then here's the beautiful see-saw talk about see size is. I'm just like I just want you to have your trip and come back with that info because it's necessary and essential. You know, what I mean to the the fabric of everything? However, we want to understand that which no matter what we're going to be incomplete in some way. And I'll come back, and I'll be like, I think it was this and in between and the meeting of our two perspective. This is not just hippy dippy stuff. I'm like, that's it. I grew up going as you did I need to make you think what I think. And now, I'm like, this is it this is we have a part of me that wants to not leave this room until you think exactly as I do. I'm like, a spiritual unitarian above not believing in. God. I'll believe in the unitarian Jesus is that. Okay. As a metaphor is one person among many that we look to for guidance. That's right. We look to Mulan too. Good metaphor. Sure of what time is it. Okay. Ten. Stop. Well, we're not gonna stop. We're going to we're going to put a pin in those. Well, it's very exciting to even be able to have these conversations with because that's hard for me to have so much of what I love in one person. Oh. I love the. I don't mean the metaphorical I need Jesus of Nazareth. That shows up in two historical documents. The bible and just see now. But that's just was written. That was backdated. Really? Yeah. That's not. That's a fake what fund? So he was written in one three hundred years. Probably know, Malcolm, actually. Yeah to. Yeah. Of course, what's fun about Buddha. Was they were like nobody was ever. Like, this is fucking real baby. They seem to be a little bit more groovy. Yeah. Well, I mean, that's the thing that I hate about modern religion is taking seriously. Like, it's it's like I feel like you're missing. Each church. I would think you're missing what's great about the bible, which is it's made up stories, but it's coming from this collective unconscious. This is our history of how we solved the problems of the world. It's also dominated each other in order to science, and blah, blah, blah, incredibly great stories stopping insisting that Jona and the whale is true wrecks, the big fish. But like, it's even itself by making it true Jews. Jesus story is incredibly powerful story. Right now. That's right. And because it wasn't ruined by journalistic reporting yet just like people are going Star Wars drew its drew like it's like not why don't even like Star Wars. I'm trying to think sinus. But it moves you in a way because it's not it's like, it's like Harry Potter is from people. It's like I wrote this might work. I was like it wants to bring you to a place by any means necessary. Right. Yes. How else are you going to get there? Yes. Politely..

"And of course, he wrote a whole book about free will anyway. So he's really into the no free will. And then very. Very cheese sandwich. That's what do you mean? You ever perfect multi sale it. Yes, it's crispy and it's kinda coming bad grilled cheese. That's what I'm saying. You're good one didn't say that at the beginning. Well, you know, I should have known with your teeter totter leaning, not in your favor. The youth thought I meant a bad up roadstop. Denny's grand cheese three will thing. I think about every day because but it's very hard concept to get accuracy. Because people think it means that your predetermined or things are already. That's not true every minute me parking outside your house in walking in had subtle changes on my biology. This conversation had changes brain structure. That's right. So to say, there's no free will which I don't believe in free. Will just means that everything that happens to happen to me is also becomes part of the predetermined part of what's going to happen. That's what people can't really it's the snowball they wanna make it very simple like even at the unitarian church in Evanston. Because you have to take a day of like he had to learn all about the history of unitarian, and do this thing, and they they made this group, and they said, how many people believe in who don't know I'm going to I shouldn't even bring this up because it's complicated. But it's like and also because I can't remember it. Well, but it was like people who don't believe in free will on this site and people who do believe that they have control over their lives on this side like it was unfair. That's right. And I stood there in the middle. Like, I was like, but I don't believe in free will. And I also believe I make all the decisions of my life. But the decisions I'm making are predetermined by my biology and my experiences. It sounds like third way. So I can't even be in one of these groups, and then they didn't like that. Because everyone you you. If you go back to Chicago needs to be knitted at news. You warm, but I love that stuff. I I could spend all my time. You're right. Over-simplified to say like I have agency. I don't ever see I heard on NPR. They were like, look you don't have free. Will it appears that you have free way? So you kind of have free will because you seem to feel like you do and that's valid and it's kind of small way. But really you don't. And you know, it's funny. When I when I really don't they're wrong there too. Because the way they're even saying, but really you don't don't understand that. It means literally to the second doing everything right on the on the razor's edge. So moment is like a hard for. Cutting like really really into it. I love that. 'cause it's interesting. I again in the spirit of not wanting to change anybody when you take acid with the intention of believe, this is my mind, my friend, Shane would smoke, the which I don't know if you know what that is. But. It's insanely more powerful than LSD. It's actually the chemical. That's in our bodies right now. But there's inhibitors, and when you die you trip on explains a lot of after life, and I'm also babies when they're born or tripping on Mt. It's a real thing. It's Buchan insane. And it's a very very very strong, and you can smoke it or you can injected intramuscularly, and you tried it. No. I haven't. I took I took one head of it, which is not count. And it wasn't because I was scared because Shane was take. What one you won't even know? He's right. I didn't things got a little bendy, but it was fine. So I haven't smoked in the way that you can say I've done the which three deep hits and you go away. He would go in there. You'd love Shane. You would love Shane and Shane is. Like, he loves SCI. He's hardcore into all of this. And he would go and talk to thing imagine being in a three dimensional reality..

"Why is that you years? I don't even understand that word when we got engaged wires that not a rational act to get engaged. That's such a good. What I would say is a rack problems to have a partner. There's nothing irrational about. Okay. But I already had a partner. So why did the exchanging of rings and the giving vows feel so good? That's what was a rational. Why they national at all? Which channel things you do the ceremony. Yes. Rings, I'll tell you. Why it's hard to be married to somebody. It's really hard making huge public statements about it. Buying a house together. Having a kid together buying a boat getting a summer house making it hard to break up. And now nursing it were together that all those things help you stay together. Benefit of it is that you get a person to be with what I was thinking was a rational was what felt so good that felt sort of strange to me that why would that be rational, you're doing a completely positive thing? But yeah, you're right. You're right. Yeah. I can see that the whole thing people. We know were together. No. I'm conservative of that. Now, you get married. You have you have jewelry that signifies that you're with somebody. Now, you need to buy a house together. Now, you need to have kids together. I want you to get a car don't buy it outright. I want you to be on a plan with both your names that you both sign it. I keep thinking about the don't hippos funerals and don't like certain animals that do very much like us be liturgy that look to be liturgical that local ceremonial just are making it religious. What if it's like, I'm sad. My friend died, they gather their bones. They all gather around. You're right. But isn't that what we're doing? Yeah. Then we deserve. But I would say the turtle is just doing a human response to caring about other people and being sad together about them being gone true. But some people don't have that natural impulse. And you have to sort of rope them in. Those don't forget this feels good. Yeah. Right. Yeah. Well, because it's insurance against the vicissitudes of life. I mean like you really trying to create community all these different ways to help you. If you think of how we evolved all these little tribes, the more, you were cohesive, the more, you had rituals the more you cared about all the same people. You are willing to sacrifice for those people made it much more likely survive. So we all have those impulses. But I feel like in modern society, we lose touch with that. Anyway, that's true. So we kinda need these signs posts. I wanna play fun game. Let's it's called. Julia Sweeny breaks down the logic of one of my bets. Oh because I did a bit in my last special. I'm assuming it's wrong to assume. Do you believe in an afterlife? No, okay. Oh, yes. I've seen this. Okay. I say in my bed. People say an afterlife doesn't make sense. I agree. I don't think that's true though. Which part that it doesn't make sense. You think it does make sense don't? I mean, I guess anyway. Go ahead. I'm sorry. I'm assuming the reason you don't believe in it is because it doesn't make sense. Yeah. Okay. The brain dies, right. And then the it's not really an argument. I'm offering life sets a a precedent for things that don't make sense, but very Abby. Okay. But that's the I had a problem with that. I want you to do it because I thought well first of all laugh, very hard because you're very skilled comedian. And I knew I did that. But then he went home and my husband's like, I'm like. But why is it? So crazy, why is life such a crazy thing? I don't understand what crazy thing because we're human. We're natural human animals that die, and then Dev being something that we can concede. We don't have evidence on what happens to consciousness when the body dies. Do. Oh my God. There's so much we can measure it, but there's potential measure it would the activity brain activity. You can measure brain activity is what I'm saying. Is it was over? Yes..

"Right. So when we talk about beliefs, which is what the church is become a group of inverse is out versus them right versus right completely fucked up. Not spiritual stuff, not heart stuff all nonsense. Clam stuff deputy stuff when you when Jesus says that becoming like a child with child. Open right free, right spacious present playful joyful, life, actually, not willing to be led. Leery of audit. That's engine. That's an interesting way to interpret that I certainly don't, but that not even hung up on their own identity and not even hung up on clan. Whether country, or whatever, whatever God or idol, they could be worshipping. They're probably not. They're probably running around a field barefoot. They're probably giggling or you know, what? I mean there you have it remanded sized idea of children, but he'll learn about that your child. But anyway, okay, let's go with a romantic idea of charter. But how could it be about a collection of thoughts or a belief that you believe to be in or laughing at your pastors jokes to demonstrate in a group mind? How in you are interesting. It's so much more simple Jesus in that moment to me isn't saying believe this or pray this or say this or go here or do this. And don't do that. He saying be open be spacious be free be liberated. I. I hear that though. I think maybe that's what he meant. But I would say I would at first glance at that for me. Now, I would see the dark side of it. So funny, I've never even considered that someone would think he's saying he's saying you're uninformed, and you're not you're you're easily led. And you're not that bright. Meaning you need to be not that to me. I think in lots of ways guys gather around you gotta be dumbest shit. Follow me, be sheep. They say that over and over again be dumb being dumb is the best way to be very. Really? Farted? You didn't shit far? I know it's fine. I love eight. Understand it in a romantic bigger metaphorically. Why that's beautiful but not in a tangible way for me because I have you taken. I yes, that's dated a guy. This is. Before Michael, obviously. And he was convinced that he was going to get me to believe in God by taking acid, and so we went to Hawaii together, and we made it all very safe.
