Sandra Bernhard, the outspoken and outrageous star of Broadway’s I'm Still Here . . . Damn It!, is planning to unleash Sandemonium in a week of concerts December 26–31 at Joe’s Pub in New York City, including two shows on New Year’s Eve.
Accompanied by the Sandyland Squad Band, the comedian-actor-author-singer will appear in 7:30 and 9:30 PM shows December 26–30, and 9 and 11 PM hows December 31, with a mix of comedy and song.
Berndard defines “Sandemonium” as the madness that seems to be swirling in the world today: “Climate disaster, Russian invasion, unhinged leaders. Have you been slut shamed? Are you gender neutral? Come face to face with a white supremacist? Swam through a flood? Run from a fire? Observed a chunk of the polar ice cap floating away? Occupied land that didn’t belong to you? Been strung out on Oxycontin? Been invited to prescribe to the latest pharmaceutical for every known ailment that only create more? Lost your fortune in shady investments? Won it all back in the Powerball lottery? Have you narrowly missed a terrorist attack in your favorite destination? Changed religions and still found no peace of mind? Birthed two sets of twins two years apart? Renovated your kitchen? Slept with GOT’s on in the background? Taken a bad batch of ecstasy? Discovered your food supply is loaded with GMO’s? Has your Instagram account been hacked? You’ve been swept up in ‘Sandemonium’!”
In addition to her 1998 solo show I'm Still Here . . . Damn It!, which transferred to Broadway after five months at Off-Broadway’s Westbeth Theatre, Bernhard starred in a hit 1988 Off-Broadway show Without You I'm Nothing, with You I'm Not Much Better, which was adapted as a film and released as an album. She has appeared in films and on TV in projects as diverse as The King of Comedy, Hudson Hawk, Roseanne, Ally McBeal Chicago Hope and Will & Grace. She hosted her own talk show, Sandyland, on Sirius/XM starting in 2015, and was seen on Showtime’s The L Word.
