Sandra Bernhard's I'm Still Here...Damn It! is the title of her 1998 one-woman show, and this album is a live recording of that show. Hilarious from start to finish, one must be pretty in tune with popular culture to understand the bulk of the jokes on this album. She pokes fun at nearly every aspect of 1990s popular culture -- no one remains unscathed. From Courtney Love, Mariah Carey, Lillith Fair waifs, hash brownies in Amsterdam, life in Los Angeles, plastic bottles of water, her house painter Herminio, antibacterial soap, the fashion world, and even Ann Wilson, Ms. Bernhard provides her insightful humor on a huge variety of topics, even delicate ones such as the deaths of Princess Diana and Gianni Versace. However, no matter how touchy the topic, her humor is never malicious, bitter, or obscene, it's always slightly sarcastic, ironic, insightful, and definitely hilarious. The album does contain a few musical numbers but is not an actual musical album like its predecessor, 1994's Excuses for Bad Behavior, Pt. 1. She sings "Midnight Train to Georgia," and one studio recording is included ("On the Runway"), which was a minor U.S. dance hit (and pretty damn funny in its own right). For fans of this comedienne, this album is a definite treat and never loses its humor or poignancy, even after repeated listenings. ~ Jose Promis
