Description

Acclaimed comic, actor and writer Sue Costello tracks her life growing up in a chaotic home in Dorchester and how it led her to a desperate need for fame and money, and to the final realization that her past does not have to become her future. Alternately heartbreaking and hilarious, the show combines Costello’s street-smart Boston take-no-prisoners wit with her ability to bring an audience to tears.

Sue Costello co-created, produced, and starred in the self-titled sitcom “Costello”, for the Fox network. She has also appeared on “NYPD Blue”, “Tough Crowd with Colin Quinn”, and “Last Comic Standing”. Ms. Costello has appeared in “Southie” with Donnie Walhberg, and in “Once in the Life” with Laurence Fishburne. This year, Sue Costello will be appearing in the upcoming film “The Fighter”, starring Christian Bale, Amy Adams, and Mark Walhberg.
