Dorchester native Sue Costello (and MSJA Class of ’86 – go Mounties!) is in town to perform at Florian Hall on Saturday night at 7:30pm. Making appearances in “The Fighter” with Mark Wahlberg and Christian Bale, Last Comic Standing, Fox’s Costello, and currently streaming in the new Boston Crime Film “How to Rob,” Costello will be headlining this hilarious comedy show in the neighborhood.

Here’s a little Q+A we did will Costello a few years back for Caught in Southie!
You grew up in Savin Hill – did that influence your comedy? Absolutely! I grew up with some hilarious people. It made me want to be witty like people from Boston.
Favorite memory about growing up in Dot?
Hanging up The Ryan Playground. Oh and walking by the boys on my way to the Ryan playground. They always checked me out.
When did you know you wanted to be a comedian?
I think deep down always. I was afraid to admit it. I couldn’t even go to a comedy club until Kevin Chapman signed me up for a comedy competition and I was hooked! See! A Boston guy started it all for me.
What is your go-to order at Sully’s? Fried shrimp or a cheeseburger, french fries, and a shake.
