SANDRA BERNHARD TO PERFORM ‘FEEL THE BERNHARD’ AT RIVERS CASINO

Comedienne, Singer/Actress and Host of SiriusXM’s “Sandyland” Brings Music and Laughs to Pittsburgh’s Casino for Two Shows in November

PITTSBURGH — Sept. 26, 2016 — Rivers Casino welcomes Sandra Bernhard, legendary standup comedienne, actor, musician and host of popular SiriusXM Radio live daily show “Sandyland.” She will perform “Feel the Bernhard” in the casino’s banquet space on Saturday, Nov. 12, at 7 p.m. and 10 p.m. Tickets cost $35 and are on sale now.

Along with her band, The Sandyland Squad, Bernhard’s live, in-your-face performing combines her hysterical insight, outspoken views and outrageous mouth. Guests will enjoy a sharp blend of theatre, rock-n-roll and Bernhard’s own unique brand of comedy.

Her career spans standup, music, books, radio, film and television. She was launched into fame as part of Los Angeles’ famous Comedy Store and has since developed a long and legendary career combining her comedic insight and music into one-of-a-kind performances. She co-starred in the Martin Scorsese classic, “King of Comedy” and has appeared on various television shows, including “Two Broke Girls,” “Switched at Birth,” “Brooklyn Nine Nine,” “Will & Grace” and, of course, “Roseanne.”

Bernhard launched “Sandyland,” her daily radio show, on SiriusXM’s Radio Andy channel in September 2015. The show was just renewed for another full year, and it features a star-studded guest list as well as Bernhard’s hilarious take on pop culture, politics and more. The program airs weekdays at noon, 3 p.m., 6 p.m. and 9:30 p.m.  

“Sandra Bernhard has been making people laugh for many years, and she has a whole new following with the success of ‘Sandyland,’” said Craig Clark, general manager of Rivers Casino. “We’re excited to welcome her to Pittsburgh.”

Individual tickets can be purchased for $35 at riverscasino.com or at the Rivers Casino gift shop.
