Actress, singer and comedienne Sandra Bernhard, known for live in-your-face performances, kicked-off her 2014 tour, “Sandyland,” in early January. Now the comic legend has her sights set on Milwaukee PrideFest, Sunday, June 8.
ChicagoPride.com recently got the chance to talk to Bernard to discuss her incredible career that spans over 40 years, her dislike for social media, how Lesbian characters are now in the television mainstream and her love for musical theater.
MJR: (Michael J. Roberts) Hi Sandra , its great to talk with you again. I’ve been looking at the breadth of your work in preparing for this interview from The King of Comedy to all your new projects. How have you managed to stay relevant all this time?
SB: (Sandra Bernhard) Simple Michael, I work my ass off! Not just me but all the comedians who came from seventies and eighties. People just seem a lot more fragmented now.
Don’t miss Sandra Bernhard’s one-of-a kind live show, “Sandyland,” at the Henry Maier Festival Park/Miller Main Stage (Summerfest Grounds) at 200 N. Harbor Drive as part of Milwaukee Pridefest in Milwaukee, WI. on Sunday, June 8th. Tickets are $13 in advance and $16 at the gate. (special reserved seating also available).
