Bernhard debuted the new show at The Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts in Los Angeles and at her sold-out annual holiday shows at Joe’s Pub in New York City.

In SANDRA MONICA BLVD: Coast to Coast, Bernhard is traversing the country taking audiences on a journey to find the soul of America….the back roads and the byways on a gas station map while weaving in the soundtrack you might hear on an AM radio station you pick up from Oklahoma. She takes you to all the places you forgot but longed to remember in the muted colors of dreamy landscapes. “SANDRA MONICA BLVD: Coast to Coast” is her latest wild ride. Having launched the new show in Los Angeles and New York City, Bernhard will perform throughout 2017at all points in between.

She is also now in her second year hosting her own hugely popular daily show Sandyland on SiriusXM Radio’s Radio Andy channel (102) headed up by Andy Cohen. 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.

SANDRA MONICA BLVD: Coast to Coast has already 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.”

Of her previous show Feel the Bernhard 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.

While TheaterMania said “Bernhard knows what her audience wants, and she has them eating out of the palm of her hand from the second she walks onstage. There’s no greater joy than watching a masterful comedian feed off her crowd and give it right back to them in the form of an evening that’s as hilarious as it is truthful.”

In addition, Bernhard recently taped guest appearances on the new Hulu comedy series Difficult People, created by her friend Julie Klausner. She also returned to television last year, with a recurring role on the hit CBS TV sitcom 2 Broke Girls that aired in the spring, 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.
