If you know JULIA SWEENEY only from her Saturday Night Live running one-joke androgynous character sketch “Pat,” or her incredible This American Life contribution, this is your chance to catch up. Sweeney’s one-woman show God Said, Ha! — about how she and her brother Michael were diagnosed with cancer within months of each other (Michael did not survive) — won critical raves for its mix of humor and pathos and was turned into a film by Quentin Tarantino and a Grammy-winning CD. Her new Letting Go of God is about this lapsed Irish Catholic’s spiritual quest during and following those events. The Humanist Chaplaincy at Harvard is presenting Sweeney and her show for one night only preceding a film release, CD, and national tour, at Sanders Theatre, 45 Quincy St, Cambridge | 8 pm | $19; $12 students | 617.496.2222.
