Roseanne Barr Tore Apart ‘Low-Rated’ ABC In Her Return To Stand-Up

03.19.19 5 months ago


Roseanne Barr didn’t go down quietly. As you may recall, over the summer, the comedian, actress, and TV legend found the revival of her classic show Roseanne cancelled after a tweet she made in which she compared a black woman to an ape. During the fall-out, she was quick to go on the likes of Hannity, and to slam ABC for what they did next: taking the remaining cast and crew and launching the spin-off The Connors. Its maiden episode found them killing off “Granny Rose.”

You wouldn’t expect someone as volatile as Barr to calm down in the ensuing half-a-year. And she hasn’t. As per Deadline, she made a surprise stand-up appearance on March 16 at the Laugh Factory Las Vegas, introduced by her close friend of “about 33 years,” Andrew Dice Clay.

Clay — apparently feeling pretty ballsy after having earned the most goodwill of his career for playing Lady Gaga’s lovable dad in A Star is Born — introduced his surprise guest, saying, “There haven’t been many as controversial, as outspoken or as f—kin’ funny. Let’s hear it for Roseanne Barr!”
