I'm Still Here... Damn It is an album released by singer/comedian/actress Sandra Bernhard. The album is a live recording of her one-woman show of the same title;[1]

In Bernhard's live performances she satirized celebrity culture while commenting on events of the time.[2] Among the topics she addresses: the death of Princess Diana, Mariah Carey, Courtney Love, modern technology, religion, the world of high fashion and relationships.
