Everything Bad and Beautiful
The Jewish Journal published an interview with Sandra Bernhard to publicize her latest show "Everything Bad and Beautiful” which starts this week at the Silent Movie Theatre is scheduled March 9-25 at Silent Movie Theatre, 611 N. Fairfax Ave., Los Angeles.Audiences should be prepared for a bracing evening at the theater:
George W. Bush will earn a reprieve in this particular show. Instead, Bernhard will skewer “people around him” such as Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice.
“It’s more about how much almost compassion I have for her, being trapped in that world, being a black woman, to be so self-loathing,” she said.
Just don’t accuse Bernhard of taking potshots at the powerful.
“It’s not about targets, it’s about going beneath the surface to see what underpins things,” she said.
“Everything I do has got some sort of ironic base, but I don’t consider what I do a comedy show,” she added. “I’m an entertainer, a performer, a social commentator, a provocateur.”
