Irritable Bowels and The People Who Give You Them
Humorous essays by Terry Sweeney
Fasten your seat belts for Terry Sweeney’s wild ride from bullied gay kid of blue collar bigots to successful film and television writer/performer. His showbiz horror stories will take you on a delightfully acid-tongued trip to Hollywood Hell and back; and ultimately to the heart of Dixie in the reddest state in the Union. This book is for anyone who’s ever asked themselves can I walk away from a life that’s making me crazy and start over again somewhere else and find one that makes me happy.
Terry Sweeney joined the cast of Saturday Night Live as a writer/performer and there became famous for imitating First Lady Nancy Reagan, and also made history as the first openly gay performer on American Television. After SNL he continued to write screenplays and television in Hollywood and appeared on Seinfeld. The southern film ‘Shag’ which he co-wrote was recently chosen by Garden and Gun Magazine readers as one of The South’s Ten Greatest Films. This marks his first collection of humorous essays.
