Thirty years ago, Sandra Bernhard, the iconoclastic and irreverent comedian created a one-woman show, Without You I’m Nothing,
that was both hilarious and indefinable. A heady mix of stand-up, pop
culture, political tirade and even striptease – audiences were
enthralled with Bernhard’s particular take on American society. In 1990
came a film of the same name, directed by John Boskovich, but Bernhard
was not interested in creating merely a recording of her live show.
Naturally, a film as unconventional as this did not set the box office on fire. But in the years since, Without You I’m Nothing
has become an urban legend. A zany, caustic, queer and massively
entertaining commentary on life, work, love, race and 20th century
American culture, completely perverting our idea of who performers are,
and what they have to be. And what’s more – the film is covered in the
fingerprints of producer Nicolas Roeg.
Fringe! are proud to present this rare screening of a truly queer cult classic.
Doors open at 18.30, for a 19.30 start.
