Sandra Bernhard coming to D.C. for Pride performance

Sandra Bernhard, the popular comedian and entertainer, will perform during Pride week in D.C. on Friday, June 8 at 7:30 p.m. at the Shakespeare Theatre Co., the Washington Blade announced today.

The performance marks the Blade’s third annual Pride Comedy Show. Tickets are on sale now and available at shakespearetheatre.org.

Bernhard is a pioneer of the one-woman show and brings a unique and raucous mix of cabaret, stand-up, rock-n-roll, and social commentary to the stage. She has starred in Broadway shows and films and her TV credits include “Roseanne,” “Two Broke Girls,” “Will & Grace,” and “The New Adventures of Old Christine,” among others.

“We’re excited to welcome Sandra to help celebrate Pride week,” said Blade Publisher Lynne Brown. “We could all use a laugh right now in Washington and Sandra will deliver.”

The Blade launched the annual Pride Comedy Show in 2016 with two sold-out shows by Leslie Jordan; last year’s sold-out performance featured comedian Kate Clinton.
