About the Artist
Susan Jeremy is a character comic and solo artist best known for her numerous one woman shows. She was last seen at Dixon Place in the HOT Festival (2017) where she premiered her new show – She Was a Great Dad. The show is scheduled to tour five Canadian cities next summer. As a stand-up, Susan has been featured in comedy festivals around the world.
Aaron Sweeney has been writing, performing, and producing comedy for over 10 years. Since moving to San Francisco from Boston for art school to study illustration, he’s worked as a freelance graphic designer and toy-maker as well as writing, producing, directing, and co-starring in Access of Evil, a radical queer comedy public access show. Through Access, Aaron discovered his alter-ego, the born-again Christian, abstinence-only sex educator, and empty vessel for the Lord, Constance “Connie” Flagtwat. After moving to NYC in 2008 to pursue standup, his lifelong dream of waiting tables and background work for film and tv was quickly realized. TV credits include Law & Order (carrying a pie (mixed fruit)), Law & Order: SVU (sitting behind Chris Meloni) and Blue Bloods (carrying a box of phones). Comedy credits for Aaron and Connie include Nicky and Aaron’s Fagtastic Comedy Show!, LES Festival (Featured Performer), Estrogenius (Token Male), Bushwig Drag Festival, and Constance “Connie” Flagtwat’s Chaste Christian Cabaret of Chaste Christian Comedy. He regularly does standup in an around NYC. www.connieflagtwat.com
