The inimitable Sandra Bernhard will return for her annual holiday shows at Joe's Pub at 425 Lafayette St. in Manhattan, performing her all-new show "Sandemonium"" December 26 through NY's Eve December 31, with two shows each night.

"Sandemonium" is swirling all around you, minute to minute "breaking news." No one knows what's coming next. Climate disaster, Russian invasion, unhinged leaders. Have you been slut-shamed? Are you gender neutral? Come face to face with a white supremacist? Swam through a flood? Run from a fire? Observed a chunk of the polar ice cap floating away?

Been strung out on Oxycontin? Lost your fortune in shady investments? Have you narrowly missed a terrorist attack in your favorite destination? Changed religions and still found no peace of mind? Birthed two sets of twins two years apart? Has your Instagram account been hacked?

You've been swept up in "Sandemonium"! It's time for a psychic break. Sandy will bring you back from your bad trip. Soothe your aura and calm your chakra's, shut down your electronics, find your mantra, do a meditation, let it all go my darling! Just stop! Look, listen to Sandra Bernhard along with the Sandyland Squad Band. Sandy will make it all better. Bernhard now debuts "Sandemonium" at Joe's Pub in New York City, which she will then perform throughout 2018 around the country and overseas.

She is also now enjoying the third year hosting her own hugely popular daily show Sandyland on SiriusXM Radio's Radio Andy channel (102) headed up by Andy Cohen, of which The Huffington Post wrote... "It's hard to describe, much, in the same way, it's hard to put words to a brilliant jazz artist's improvisations. She simply took the conversation places that were at once and enlightening, provocative and intimate." Her strong opinions and unique perspective, along with her provocative, spontaneous conversations with a wide spectrum of guests from the worlds of entertainment and fashion have made Sandyland so successful.

Bernhard's previous show "Sandra Monica Blvd: Coast to Coast" brought in rave reviews, with Variety saying "What makes Bernhard's comedy so rare -- whether she's philosophizing about Taylor Swift's squad or singing Dolly Parton's "Hard Candy Christmas" as imagined by Caitlyn Jenner -- is that within every keenly observed pop-culture rant, there's an element of piercing truth. Bernhard remains as brash and brazen as she was in the 1970s."

Bernhard did guest appearances on the Hulu comedy series "Difficult People," created by her friend Julie Klausner. She also returned to television with a recurring role on the hit CBS TV sitcom "2 Broke Girls" and guest-starred on episodes of Fox TV's "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" as the character Gina's "eccentric" and "offbeat" mother, Darlene Linetti.

And, in 2014 guest-starred on ABC Family's original drama series, "Switched at Birth" in a recurring role as Teresa Lubarsky, a groovy art professor at a local college where Bay (Vanessa Marano) is taking classes. The Peabody Award-winning family drama returned for its third season in January 2014. As most people are aware, from 1991-1996 she played Nancy Bartlett-the first openly gay character on a network sitcom -- on "Roseanne."

Sandra Bernhard performs "Sandemonium" from December 26-31 with shows at 7:30 and 9:30 p.m. at Joe's Pub, 425 Lafayette Street in NYC.
