Sandra Bernhard is an American comedienne, singer, actress and author. She first gained attention in the late 1970s with her stand-up comedy in which she often bitterly critiques celebrity culture and political figures. Bernhard is number 97 on Comedy Central's list of the 100 greatest standups of all time.

I mean when I was a kid, we moved out to Arizona. These kids would be like calling me, the n-word to my lips. You have…you know. Because they thought I was black, I guess. And I was the blackest person they had seen in Arizona. And I would just be like – whatever, honey. You’ll be paying for lips some day anyway, literally and figuratively. The whole idea of anti-Semitism and being bullied, I’ve never really gotten into that. I always managed to say, “Hey! You’re the idiot.” That’s part of the reason why I was able to be a performer. I never had a problem standing up for myself and just kind of being who I am.
