Sandra Bernhard was born into a conservative Jewish family as a daughter of Jerome and Jeanette Bernhard. Together with her parents and three older brothers, Sandra moved to Scottsdale, Arizona when she was ten. Bernhard started with her comedy gigs while in high school, and after matriculating from Saguaro High School, Sandra moved to Israel to volunteer on a kibbutz. A year later, Bernhard moved to Los Angeles where she supported herself thanks to a manicuring job.

Sandra gained a lot of popularity while working in a comedy club called The Comedy Store during the 70’s. That popularity landed her a TV debut on “The Richard Pryor Show” (1977), and later she appeared in various talk-shows. In the 80’s, Bernhard had roles in Cheech and Chong’s “Nice Dreams” (1981), Martin Scorsese’s “The King of Comedy” (1982) starring Robert De Niro and Jerry Lewis, Ken Kwapis’ “Follow That Bird” (1985), and Nicolas Roeg’s “Track 29” (1988). All added to her net worth.

Bernhard was quite busy in the 90’s, and appeared in movies such as “Hudson Hawk” (1991) starring Bruce Willis, Danny Aiello, and Andie MacDowell; Ann Turner’s “Dallas Doll” (1994), and Betty Thomas’ “The Late Shift” (1996). Sandra also had a bigger part in the TV series “Roseanne” (1991-1997), playing Nancy Bartlett in 33 episodes. At the end of the 90’s, Bernhard appeared in “Wrongfully Accused” (1998) starring Leslie Nielsen, Richard Crenna, and Kelly LeBrock, and gave her voice to Cassandra in the animated series “Hercules” (1998-1999).

In the 2000’s, Bernhard had roles in Matthew Huffman’s “Playing Mona Lisa” (2000), Bob Giraldi’s “Dinner Rush” (2000) starring Danny Aiello, and “Dare” (2009) with Emmy Rossum, Zach Gilford, and Ashley Springer.
