The Cinema Museum, London

Screening of Without You I’m Nothing (1990) on 35mm Film

Sun 17 Mar 2019 @ 19:30 · Events

Without You I'm NothingThirty 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: it is 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 35mm film screening of a truly queer cult classic.

Doors open at 18.30, for a 19.30 start.

Refreshments will be available in our licensed cafe/bar.
