Who is Sandra Bernhard?
Sandra Bernhard continues to tour nationally and overseas with her live show Feel the Bernhard, spotlighting her own unique, sharp blend of hysterical insight and outspoken views, with rock-n- roll, cabaret, stand-up and a little burlesque. Bernhard’s show, which also features her band The Sandyland Squad, has been selling out venues in New York City, Los Angeles, Chicago and all points in between.
She will debut her upcoming brand new live show Sandra Monica Blvd: Coast to Coast in December of this year, while she is also now going into her second year hosting her own hugely popular SiriusXM Radio daily live show Sandyland on Andy Cohen’s Radio - Andy channel 102.
Sandra debuted Feel the Bernhard at her annual sold-out six night run at Joe’s Pub in New York City which garnered rave reviews. Theater Mania wrote……..Bernhard knows what her audience wants, and she has them eating out of the palm of her hand from the second she walks onstage. There's no greater joy than watching a masterful comedian feed off her crowd and give it right back to them in the form of an evening that's as hilarious as it is truthful.
She has chutzpah to spare, but it’s her articulate intelligence that earns our attention... It’s combination of glamour and accessibility that accounts for Bernhard’s enduring appeal
«I like the energy of live performance.»
Broadway World said…. she will set the place afire with her white-hot intelligence. She is authentic, unapologetically pissed, heartbroken, and of course, hilarious. If you like your reality served straight up with a twist, as I do, this is a show for you. Bernhard crosses from searing, caustic diatribe to cool detached fantasy to observational non-sequiturs with such deftness, you don't have time to question or be confused--it's all too spot-on and hilarious not to simply roll with it.
While, of her overall career, The New Yorker wrote in December 2014……. Sandra Bernhard teaches the children—all those burgeoning spoken-word artists and monologists—how to perform observational comedy with style, and right on the political edge.
Bernhard’s film credits include Martin Scorsese’s iconic The King of Comedy, for which she was awarded Best Supporting Actress by the National Society of Film Critics. On the television front, Sandra appeared last year in several episodes of the hit CBS sitcom Two Broke Girls, while also guest-starring on episodes of Fox Television’s Brooklyn 99.
In 2014, she joined the cast of the Peabody Award winning ABC Family drama Switched at Birth in a recurring role. Of course, from 1991-1996 Bernhard played Nancy Bartlett—the first openly gay character on a network sitcom—on Roseanne.
Her various one-woman shows have included the groundbreaking Without You I’m Nothing, I’m Still Here… Dammit!, Everything Bad and Beautiful and I Love Being Me, Don’t You?
