When you think about Sandra Bernhard, you likely picture Nancy, Arnie’s wife on Roseanne, but you need to think a little harder. Bernhard is an octuple threat — she writes, performs, sings, puts on shows, wins awards, write books, puts out albums and back-up sings for big-timers. On Wednesday she’s bringing her nasal nonchalance to the Kessler (123 W. Davis St.) in Oak Cliff in the form of her latest show — Comedic Prophesies of Sandra Bernhard. Her wit is razor-sharp, she’s one of the smartest bitches you’ll ever meet and she’s been doing this since the 1970s, so she knows her shit. Her blunt, brutal honesty is refreshing and even though every two-bit performer promises to offend your delicate sensibilities, Sandra actually delivers. In the most welcome way possible. Tickets range from $35 to $50 and are on sale at thekessler.org. The show is one night only and starts at 8 p.m.
