Sandra Bernhard – #30Voices30Days

by | Jun 13, 2024

For nearly five decades in the industry, performer, actress, singer and author Sandra Bernhard does it all!

On screen, she most recently starred in Ryan Murphy’s series American Horror Story and Emmy Award winning POSE. Past television credits include Broad City, Difficult People, 2 Broke Girls, Brooklyn 99, You’re the Worst, Will & Grace, The Sopranos, and Roseanne. Bernhard’s most notable film credit inMartin Scorsese’s The King of Comedy opposite Robert De Niro, won her Best Supporting Actress by the National Society of Film Critics.

Bernhard gained attention in the late ‘70s with her stand-up comedy and continues today with live stage performances throughout the U.S. and overseas. A pioneer of the one-woman show, Bernhard brings a completely unique and raucous mix of cabaret, stand-up, rock-n-roll, and social commentary.

She is currently in her eighth year hosting her weekly radio show “Sandyland” on SiriusXM, for which she won a broadcasting Gracie Award.

Who is the true you?

The True Me is the person who does her own laundry, walks home with bags of groceries she promised herself wouldn’t weigh a 1000 pounds, the person who stops and adores every dog on the street, and the person who wakes in the middle of the night trying to figure out what’s wrong with our world.

What is your passion?

My passion is creating, funny dramatic madcap moments, that i can bring to the stage night after night, of course, attempting through my work to raise consciousness and throw out a life line to all my sisters & brothers who are struggling to stay strong in these challenging times.

When do you feel the most authentic?

When I am telling the truth in spite of the sometimes strange reactions I have had over the years, to be compassionate, but at the same time call myself out as well as those I see around me who just aren’t on the up and up.

Why is it important for YOUR voice to be heard?

It is important for my voice to be heard because I’ve staked my claim from the beginning of my career on being a truth teller and I have never backed down, take it or leave it, but do so at your own risk!
