Sandra Bernhard is a true original - notoriously outrageous, talented, and unpredictable.
When she was growing up, many of the female comics she saw on TV - funny as they were - worked a similar theme: they were self-deprecating. And Sandra vowed never to do that.
Her point of view was this: I'll be who I want. I'll look how I want. I'll say what I want. Get used to it. And that's how it's gone.
In her one-woman shows, Sandra does not hold back: pushing boundaries, ripping politicians, and exposing the hypocrisy she sees in celebrity culture.
She's made her mark off-stage as well, as an unhinged stalker in Martin Scorsese's 'The King of Comedy' and on 'Roseanne' as one of the first regular gay characters on network TV.
And now, brace yourselves, glorious nation: Sandra's bringing her infamous stage show to these parts... as a headliner at this year's Canadian International Comedy Fest.

Bernhard is performing tomorrow night at the Comedy Fest tomorrow night, March 22, at the Winter Garden Theatre in Toronto.
She'll also be at the Richmond Hill Centre for the Performing Arts in Richmond Hill, Ontario on March 7, 2014.
