Onstage, Sandra Bernhard is the quirky comic who became famous ``kidnapping'' Jerry Lewis in 1983's The King of Comedy.

Offstage, she's a straight-laced mom raising a 12-year-old daughter, Cicely.

Together they enjoy ``smart and funny'' TV shows like The Simpsons and The Golden Girls.

Definitely not Glee.

``I think it's trashy,'' says Bernhard, who performs Friday and Saturday at Prelude by Barton G. in Miami.

``They jump all over the place,'' she said.

``One minute you should be singing in the glee club and the next thing you're threatening some other girl and sleeping with somebody's boyfriend.''

``I shouldn't say that,'' Bernhard adds, ``because I should be on that show.''
