I think Sandra is very talented as a singer and performaer. I enjoyed the singing she did although would have been better(in my opinion) if she had done more ...especially as she had a really great backing band. The comedy portion of the show...continued

I had seen Sandra years ago and enjoyed her. In this show she seems to have lost her edge. The material just wasn't very entertaining. When she tried to show she is a singer, she failed.

I have been interested in seeing Sandra Bernhard for years and I finally got my change. Ugh. I was sooo disappointed in this show. What a waste of time and money. She just wasn't funny. I am sure there are certain audiences in New York who...continued

Description

The Triple Door presents the Seattle premiere of the revered and irreverent Sandra Bernhard’s latest show, _I Love Being Me, Don’t You? _ Bernhard is backed by four-piece band, for a no-holds-barred evening blending outrageous humor, cutting satire and fiercely energetic live performance. The production comes on the heels of the June release of her comedy album of the same title.

Since she first stepped on stage at the Comedy Store in the ‘70s, Sandra Bernhard has been challenging fans and critics with her outrageous humor, keen satire and rollicking stage shows. “Give the dame her due,” writes_ The New York Times_, “It’s invigorating to be in the presence of a true original.”

Bernhard, who writes and develops all of her own material, has produced numerous one-woman shows over the years, among them: Without You I’m Nothing (which was released as a feature film), Excuses for Bad Behavior, Giving ‘Til It Hurts, Hero Worship, The Love Machine, and _ Everything Bad and Beautiful,_ which ran for two months off-Broadway, before Bernhard toured with it, making numerous stops across the U.S. and in Europe.

Bernhard’s last show, Hero Worship, featured a five-piece band and was a post-September 11th tribute to Bernhard’s commitment to irony — that it, too, has survived September 11th. The show featured a range of musical numbers (some original and some covers). It was a fearless attempt to show that life must continue and the show must go on. Other notable performances include her participation in the Stormy Weather Benefit ’98,” organized by Don Henley, which also featured Stevie Nicks and Joni Mitchell, as well as “The Elton John Tribute for Broadway Cares.”
