“Sandemonium” is swirling all around you, minute to minute “breaking news”. No one knows what’s coming next. 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”! It’s time for a psychic break. Sandy will bring you back from your bad trip. Soothe your aura and calm your chakra’s, shut down your electronics, find your mantra, do a meditation, let it all go my darling!
Sandy is here to make it all right. “Sandemonium” is a brief respite from the endless madness. Come on her magical mystery tour, listen to the sights and sounds, sample her exotic offerings. Just stop! Look, listen to Sandra Bernhard along with the Sandyland Squad Band. Sandy will make it all better.
“What makes Bernhard’s comedy so rare — whether she’s philosophizing about Taylor Swift’s squad or singing Dolly Parton’s “Hard Candy Christmas” as imagined by Caitlyn Jenner — is that within every keenly observed pop-culture rant, there’s an element of piercing truth. Bernhard remains as brash and brazen as she was in the 1970s.” …Variety
“The show makes one wonder what to make of Bernhard’s distinctive place in the entertainment firmament. She is a show business stalwart of over three decades. Bernhard has evolved into a pop culture fixture, a jack-of- all-trades performer as actress, singer, comedian, and, more recently, a radio show host of SiriusXM’s Sandyland.” …The Daily Beast
“Sandra Bernhard takes no prisoners and pulls no punches. She will set the place afire with her white-hot intelligence. She is authentic, unapologetically pissed, heartbroken, and of course, hilarious.”….. Broadway World
“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.”…… TheaterMania
Of her SiriusXM Radio daily live show Sandyland, The Huffington Post wrote….. “It’s hard to describe, much in the same way it’s hard to put words to a brilliant jazz artist’s improvisations. She simply took the conversation places that were at once and enlightening, provocative and intimate.”
“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.”…..The New Yorker
