Sandra Bernhard will perform her all-new show "Sandemonium" on Friday, June 8th at 7:30 pm at the Shakespeare Theater Company's Lansburgh Theatre at 450 7th Street NW in Washington, D.C. as part of the city's Gay Pride festivities. Bernhard debuted "Sandemonium" at her annual holiday shows at Joe's Pub in Manhattan, and is now taking the show to select cities around the U.S. and overseas.

Are you gender neutral? Come face to face with a white supremacist? Swam through a flood? Run from a fire? Observed a chunk of the polar ice cap floating away? Been strung out on Oxycontin? Lost your fortune in shady investments? Have you narrowly missed a terrorist attack in your favorite destination? Changed religions and still found no peace of mind? Birthed two sets of twins two years apart? Has your Instagram account been hacked?

You've been swept up in "Sandemonium"! It's time for a psychic break. Sandy will bring you back from your bad trip. Soothe your aura and calm your chakra's, shut down your electronics, find your mantra, do a meditation, let it all go my darling! Just stop! Look, listen to Sandra Bernhard along with the Sandyland Squad Band. Sandy will make it all better

She is also now enjoying the third year hosting her own hugely popular daily show Sandyland on SiriusXM Radio's Radio Andy channel (102) headed up by Andy Cohen, of which The Huffington Post wrote..... "It's hard to describe, much in the same way it's hard to put words to a brilliant jazz artist's improvisations. She simply took the conversation places that were at once and enlightening, provocative and intimate." Her strong opinions and unique perspective, along with her provocative, spontaneous conversations with a wide spectrum of guests from the worlds of entertainment and fashion have made Sandyland so successful.

Bernhard's previous show "Sandra Monica Blvd: Coast To Coast" brought in rave reviews, with Variety saying "What makes Bernhard's comedy so rare - whether she's philosophizing about Taylor Swift's squad or singing Dolly Parton's "Hard Candy Christmas" as imagined by Caitlyn Jenner - is that within every keenly observed pop-culture rant, there's an element of piercing truth. Bernhard remains as brash and brazen as she was in the 1970s".

While The Daily Beast proclaimed "The show makes one wonder what to make of Bernhard's distinctive place in the entertainment firmament. She is a show business stalwart of over three decades. Bernhard has evolved into a pop culture fixture, a jack-of-all-trades performer as actress, singer, comedian, and, more recently, a radio show host of SiriusXM's Sandyland." And, Broadway World wrote "Sandra Bernhard takes no prisoners and pulls no punches. She will set the place afire with her white-hot intelligence. She is authentic, unapologetically pissed, heartbroken, and of course, hilarious."

In addition, Bernhard recently did guest appearances on the new Hulu comedy series "Difficult People," created by her friend Julie Klausner. She also returned to television with a recurring role on the hit CBS TV sitcom "2 Broke Girls" and guest-starred on episodes of Fox TV's "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" as the character Gina's "eccentric" and "offbeat" mother, Darlene Linetti.

And, in 2014 guest-starred on ABC Family's original drama series, "Switched at Birth" in a recurring role as Teresa Lubarsky, a groovy art professor at a local college where Bay (Vanessa Marano) is taking classes. The Peabody Award-winning family drama returned for its third season in January 2014. As most people are aware, from 1991-1996 she played Nancy Bartlett-the first openly gay character on a network sitcom-on "Roseanne."

Sandra Bernhard performs "Sandemonium" on Friday, June 8th at 7:30 pm at the Shakespeare Theater Company's Lansburgh Theatre at 450 7th Street NW in Washington, D.C.
