Diva, ironist, actress, comedian, serial David Letterman guest - she does so many things, it's hard to describe who the real Sandra Bernhard really is. But anyone who attended last year's "I Love Being Me, Don't You?" at REDCAT had to come away with the impression that her mix of comedic rants, political rants, autobiography and glam rock 'n' roll was as bracing as ever. Bernhard, who was born in Michigan in 1955 and raised in part in Scottsdale, Ariz., comes to REDCAT Wednesday to open "Sandrology," which will, like the previous program, show Bernhard's musical chops.

No one ever called Sandra Bernhard a simple girl at heart, and her latest show, "Sandrology," which opened Wednesday at REDCAT, is a kind of loosely constructed seminar on her glamorously defiant complexity. Looking as stylish as ever in a black "off-the-rack" designer cocktail dress with deep pockets that prompt all kinds of apocalyptic scenarios of how they might one day come in handy, she has come back to Los Angeles to "bring the realness. " And the taunting redhead whose résumé includes stints as Bravo TV's "pop culture anthropologist" doesn't pull any punches in her survey of the celebrity world, where not even those who open doors for her are safe from her skewering.

Can Sandra Bernhard sing, you want to know? Well, yes, actually. Should she? That's another matter. Bernhard is a first-class provocateur , and near-first-class raunchy raconteur. In concert Friday night at the Pantages, the would-be chanteur also referred to herself--in a rare non-ironic moment--as an "artist." What the art form is, though, is hard to decipher.

John Steven Boskovich, 49, who co-wrote the movie "Without You I'm Nothing" with comedian and actress Sandra Bernhard, the star of the 1990 film, was found at his home in Los Angeles on Sunday Sept. 24 by his studio assistant, Brooke Dammkoehler. The cause of death was being determined in an autopsy. Boskovich first worked with Bernhard on her one-woman off-Broadway show. They later adapted the show to film.

Sandra Bernhard is wildly, madly full of herself--narcissism in overdrive, when being self-obsessed is the best obsession of all. You should have seen her at the Coach House in San Juan Capistrano Friday, where she introduced the very rough edges of her latest show, a rock 'n' roll, yakety-yak excursion called "One Is Not Enough." Shortly after an earnest stab at Guns N' Roses' "Sweet Child of Mine," Bernhard snuggled up to the microphone to tell the sold-out crowd what was going down.

Sandra Bernhard's new music album with Ted Mason, "Whatever It Takes," arrives Tuesday. Look out, because she is spending lots of time in L.A. this fall and has things to pitch, including a TV project with Rip Torn and his daughter Angelica. This year, she has been touring with an anniversary version of her famous one-woman production "Without You I'm Nothing." How was the 20th-anniversary show? I have to say it was one of the greatest nights of my life. We planned a couple of extra special things.

"I like show business," Sandra Bernhard says. "Of all the worlds I dabble in, it's the most honest. In its harshness and phoniness, it's more real. You get what you see, and there are some good people in it." You have to watch out for someone who loves show business the way Sandra Bernhard loves it, crushing its iconic images to her scrawny breast like a homecoming queen clasping a devotional bouquet.

With her 50th birthday approaching this June, Sandra Bernhard was presented with a suitably monumental proposal: the staging of a one-woman show built around classic songs and comedy bits from her past. Bernhard gave the ambitious plan some serious thought -- and then promptly tossed it out. "I started trying to dust off the old pieces, and I just wasn't connecting to the material," she said. "I get tired of my own act.
