The Sandra Bernhard Experience

Show Summary

The Sandra Bernhard Experience is a 2001 American talk show television series hosted by raucous comedian Sandra Bernhard. Well known for her scathing rants against society and pop culture, as well as her tendency to burst into song at any moment, Bernhard brings the same no-holds barred attitude to her talk show. Discarding the traditional talk show format of filming in front of a studio audience, The Sandra Bernhard Experience is a minimalistic show, featuring Bernhard; her sidekick, former journalist Sara Switzer; and a piano player, Mitch "Mitchy" Kaplan. Mitchy often accompanies Sandra as she randomly bursts into song, and opens and closes each episode with a singing number. Guests such as Nora Burns, Boy George, Michele Lee, and Paul Mooney, sit down with Sandra to talk about their lives, but mostly to chat about whatever topic strikes Sandra's fancy. Interviews meander with all of Sandra Bernhard's usual laidback style. Just as she always has, Sandra never holds back, or is afraid of touching on taboo subjects.
