USA actress, singer and comedian SANDRA BERNHARD will make a welcome return to Australia in 2015 when she brings her unique live show “Sandyland” to Sydney, Melbourne, Perth and Brisbane in March 2015.
Direct from a 12-month hit US tour of her one-of-a-kind live show, “Sandyland” is classic Bernhard – a unique, sharp blend of hysterical insight and outspoken views, with rock-n-roll, cabaret, stand-up and a little burlesque. Her live in-your-face performing combines her hysterical insight, outspoken views and outrageous mouth, together with her band, The Flawless Zircons. Bernhard’s brilliant unity of hilarious diatribes on the state of modern culture and classic rock attitude burns smart, with all the raucous energy of youth.
2015 will be Bernhard’s fourth time in Australia. “I love my Aussie friends and I can’t wait to get back and entertain the troops down under. It’s been far too long!” she said. Bernhard has been wowing, and sometimes shocking, audiences since starting her career at LA’s famed Comedy Store in the 1970’s, becoming a favourite on the US live-show comedy circuit, as well as in film, television and on Broadway.
Bernhard’s role as Nancy Bartlett - the first openly gay character on a network sitcom - on TV’s Roseanne from 1991-1996 made her a household name. A recent return to television has seen her guest star in a recurring role on the award-winning original drama series on ABC’s Switched at Birth in the US. She also guest-starred on hit ABC comedy The Neighbors in 2013. Bernhard’s small screen appearances are numerous including comedy Hot in Cleveland, DTLA, CBS’s The New Adventures of Old Christine, FOX TV’s American Dad, NBC’s Crossing Jordan and The L Word, as well as more than 30 appearances 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, extended its run and was released as an album. Since then, Bernhard has been touring almost non-stop.
