Sandra Bernhard to Bring SANDYLAND to Joe's Pub, 12/26-31
In her own one-of-a-kind live show, "Sandyland," that sharply blends theatre, rock-n-roll and stand-up with a little burlesque & cabaret, performer Sandra Bernhard will appear at Joe's Pub in New York City at 425 Lafayette Street, in her annual holiday shows there running from Thursday, December 26th through New Year's Eve, December 31st. The shows are also in celebration of Joe's Pub 15 Year Anniversary! Of course, Sandra Bernhard continues her current national touring, with live shows booked in various cities around the country this year and all throughout 2014.
In addition, the BAMcinématek will present a rare screening of Sandra Bernhard's 1990 film "Without You I'm Nothing" on Saturday, December 14th, as part of their Migrating Forms festival of film and video. Part stand-up, part monologue, part song-and-dance revue, "Without You I'm Nothing" is the film adaptation of Sandra Bernhard's hit one-woman off-Broadway show. The screening will be followed by a Q&A discussion with Bernhard, being moderated by Hilton Als of The New Yorker. For more information, go to: www.bam.org/film/2013/without-you-im-nothing.
Sandra Bernhard also returns to television in early 2014, as she will guest star in ABC Family's original drama series, "Switched at Birth." In a recurring role, Benrhard will play Teresa Lubarsky, a groovy art professor at a local college where Bay (Vanessa Marano) is taking classes. The Peabody Award-winning family drama returns for a third season in January, 2014.
The actress/singer/comedienne kicked-off her 2013 tour in early January, right after bringing 2012 to a riotous close by performing last year's four night sold-out stint at Manhattan's famed Joe's Pub over New Year's Eve.
Sandra's live in-your-face performing combines her hysterical insight, outspoken views and outrageous mouth, along with her band, The Flawless Zircons. Her brilliant unity of hilarious diatribes on the state of modern culture and classic rock attitude burns smart, still having all the raucous energy of youth.
The always entertaining Bernhard has been wowing, and sometimes shocking, audiences since starting her career at LA's famed Comedy Store in the 1970's, going on to become a favorite on the live-show comedy circuit nationally, while also forging a career in film, television and on Broadway.
This past year, she was featured in a special guest starring appearance on the hit ABC TV comedy The Neighbors. As most people are aware, from 1991-1996 she played Nancy Bartlett-the first openly gay character on a network sitcom-on Roseanne, and has more recently appeared on the TV Land comedy Hot in Cleveland, on Logo's DTLA, CBS's The New Adventures of Old Christine, FOX TV's American Dad, NBC's Crossing Jordan, The L Word, etc. and has appeared more than 30 times on Late Night with David Letterman.
In addition to her numerous television and film appearances, audiences have raved about her work on the Broadway stage, including the critically acclaimed I'm Still Here... Dammit !, which opened Off-Broadway in 1997, moved to Broadway a year later, and was filmed for an HBO special. In 2006, Bernhard's Everything Bad and Beautiful also opened to rave reviews. Her most recent show, I Love Being Me, Don't You ? played to sold-out crowds for an extended run last summer in Los Angeles. The album version of the show was released on Rooftop Records last fall, and she has since been touring almost non-stop.
