Sue Costello grew up in the powder keg of Irish Catholicism getting more diverse that was Boston’s Dorchester neighborhood in the 1970s. Costello got herself out of Dorchester to make a lot of hay in Hollywood two decades later, culminating in her own FOX sitcom, Costello. Since then, you’ve seen her as a regular on the roundtable for Tough Crowd with Colin Quinn, while her street smarts and brutal honesty won her a role on David O. Russell’s 2010 film, The Fighter. Sue and I have a rigorously honest conversation about what can hold us back in our lives and careers, and how we may even be subconsciously and accidentally complicit in holding each other back. There’s no turning back, no holding back here, so let’s get to it!
