PERFORMANCE Sandra Bernhard talks comedy, sexuality, career

As part of her tour, Sandra Bernhard will be coming to Chicago to perform her latest comedy show, "Sandra Monica Blvd: Coast to Coast," at City Winery July 20-21.

Since her career began four decades ago, Bernhard has showed no sign of slowing down, especially with her new comedy show tour, appearances on the hit CBS TV sitcom 2 Broke Girls and her daily radio show Sandyland, which airs on Sirius XM.

According to Bernhard, the show is a good mix of pop culture as well as personal narrative of course sprinkled with some classic brazen Sandra Bernhard humor. The balance of stand-up and musical numbers interspersed throughout the show make it that much more captivating. She said that this show, although funny and relatable like her previous shows, is intended to take the audience away from all the chaos of today's world. She specified that she purposefully chose not to emphasize political jokes in this show, because she aims to essentially get people out of the current political head space.

"I want to take people on a journey, and politics can be confining and hinder creativity," Bernhard told Windy City Tines. In fact, when asked about her opinion on the current political climate, she swiftly deflected and explained that the current administration is not something she spends too much energy on. Subsequently, she explained how especially now more than ever she seeks to tell stories that get people to laugh, and enjoy the moment rather than obsess over the news or other stressors.

As a member of the LGBT community, Bernhard did, however, acknowledge progress made toward more LBGT rights in recent years and stressed that perhaps the next step is for people to grow more comfortable with the idea of that gender is fluid and that not everyone needs a label.

When asked about future career plans, Bernhard said that she is looking forward to continuing her work on Sandyland, where she has an outlet to be herself and make more commentary on the political sphere, among other social issues. She is also working on doing more work as a TV-series producer in the near future as well.
