FROM THIS EPISODE

When comedienne Julia Sweeney and her brother both got cancer, she decided to tell the story the best way she knew how: in a comedy club. What resulted is halfway between standup comedy and true-life diary entries. She eventually turned some of these vignettes into a one-woman show called God Said Ha!, which Quentin Tarantino made into a movie and Julia put out as a book. The comedy club where she performed, called Un-Cabaret, is devoted to getting very funny people to tell unusually honest stories.
