Nebraska-born Aubree Sweeney studied creative writing and English at The University of Arizona in Tucson. She then went on to earn a master’s degree in screenwriting from the New York Film Academy’s Burbank campus on Universal Studios Back Lot. After graduation, being a huge Amy Poehler fan, Aubree ended up at Upright Citizens Brigade, an improvisational theater and training center in Los Angeles.
“I went through their program and loved it,” she said. “My confidence got better. My acting got better. My writing got better. Everything got better.”
A natural performer, Aubree was able to easily transition her dance and baton line experience to new mediums from the live stage, to film, web productions and commercial work. Because her monologues were particularly strong, Joel Spence, her improv team’s coach, encouraged her to try her hand at standup.
Today, Aubree is a nationally touring comedian. She spends a good part of the year traveling the country in her RV with her furry faced pride and joys; She-Ra and Paco. Aubree is based in Los Angeles, but loves to come home to Nebraska where she was honored to have received the OEAA Best Comedian Award this year. Aubree was also named a 2018 Woman of Distinction.
She has become known for her engaging, high-energy, storytelling style that relates her observations and life experiences. You can catch Aubree anywhere from a local pop-up show, to an arena, to an intimate club and everywhere in-between. Aubree is a tireless animal advocate and is ecstatic that her Aubree Sweeney Collection Pup Bandanas have been a huge hit. A portion of sales goes to help animals in need and are available at www.luvthatdog.com.
Aubree’s growing theatre resume will soon include her one woman show, Campfire Tales premiering later this summer. She is part of several television commercials currently on air. Her podcast, “Comedy and Camping with Aubree Sweeney” is available on iHeart Radio, Spotify, Apple Podcasts and GooglePlay. To keep up with Aubree, find her on Instagram and Facebook.
