PLYMOUTH — Be ready to laugh until your sides hurt when comedienne, actress, singer Sandra Bernhard brings her one-of-a-kind show, Sandyland, to the Hanaway Theatre at the PSU Silver Center at 8 p.m. April 25.
Bernhard's live performances are a raucous mix of political satire, pop culture commentary theatre, rock'n'roll and stand-up with a little burlesque and cabaret. Her brilliant unity of hilarious diatribes on the state of modern culture burns smart without loosing all the energy of youth.
Always entertaining, Bernhard has been wowing, and sometimes shocking, audiences since starting her career at LA's famed Comedy Store in the 1970s, going on to become a favorite on the live-show comedy circuit nationally, while also forging a career in film, television and on Broadway.
The stage and screen comic diva broke into the film industry in the Martin Scorsese film The King of Comedy and later became known for her television role on Roseanne as Nancy Bartlett, an openly lesbian character. She has also appeared on Hot in Cleveland, The New Adventures of Old Christine, Law & Order:SVU, Will & Grace, The Sopranos and The L Word.
After a five-night sold-out run at New York City's famed Joe's Pub over New Year's 2013, a New York Times reviewer said of Bernhard, "Just below the surface, you sense the same roving critical eye that misses nothing."
Tickets for Sandyland are $35-30 for adults and $33-28 at the Silver Center Box Office, (603) 535-2787 or (800) 779-3869. Tickets are also available online at silver.plymouth.edu.
