Some of us remember her as Nancy Bartlett on the network sitcom “Roseanne,” but Sandra Bernhard was making waves on the comedy scene long before acting or forming her band. She makes her McGlohon Theater debut Oct. 10 at 7:30 p.m. It’s not too late to get your tickets! Prices begin at $19.50. CLICK HERE to purchase now.

Bernhard’s own one‐of‐a‐kind live show, “Sandyland,” sharply blends theater, rock ‘n’ roll and stand‐up comedy with a little burlesque and cabaret. Bernhard’s in‐your‐face performing combines her hysterical insight, outspoken views and outrageous mouth, along with her band, The Flawless Zircons. Her brilliant unity of hilarious diatribes on the state of modern culture and classic rock attitude burns smart, still having all the raucous energy of youth.

The always entertaining Bernhard has been wowing, and sometimes shocking, audiences since starting her career at Los Angeles’ 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.

From 1991‐1996, Bernhard played Nancy Bartlett — the first openly gay character on a network sitcom — on “Roseanne,” and has more recently appeared on the TV Land comedy “Hot in Cleveland”; on Logo’s “DTLA”; on CBS’s “The New Adventures of Old Christine”; on FOX TV’s “American Dad”; on NBC’s “Crossing Jordan,” “The L Word,” and more; and has appeared more than 30 times on “Late Night With David Letterman.”

In addition to her numerous television and film appearances, audiences have raved about her work on the Broadway stage, including the critically acclaimed I’m Still Here… Dammit!, which opened off‐Broadway in 1997, moved to Broadway a year later, and was filmed for an HBO special. In 2006, Bernhard’s “Everything Bad and Beautiful” also opened to rave reviews.

Her most recent show, “I Love Being Me, Don’t You?”played to sold out crowds for an extended run last summer in L.A. The album version of the show was released on Rooftop Records last fall, and she has toured almost nonstop ever since.
