Roseanne Barr Makes Her Return To Stand-Up Comedy: 'I'm Not About To Make People Happy'
The controversial comedian ripped into the American ABC network in her return to stand-up comedy.
Appearing at the Laugh Factory Las Vegas, Barr did a surprise set during her friend Andrew Dice Clay's time on the stage.
Introducing Barr, Dice Clay said, "There haven't been many as controversial, as outspoken or as f**kin' funny," according to Deadline.
Barr, who was fired from the reboot of her self-titled sitcom after tweeting a racist insult towards a former Obama advisor, spoke about what happened after she was very publicly let go from her own show.
"When you get fired, you get real suicidal, but I’d never kill myself because that would make too many fu**ing people happy," Barr said, "and I’m not about to make people happy."
While talking to Dice Clay, Barr also joked about his set saying, "You're telling the truth and that's illegal nowadays so fu**ing keep it up."
Receiving a standing ovation from most of the audience when she walked in, Barr later took aim at ABC, the network in the US which aired the series reboot.
"Dear ABC, when you asked me back to once again bail out your shit, fu**ing low-rated network, I did so with the same vigour I’ve always rocked, and I delivered you the highest ratings you’ve had in ten fu**ing years," Barr said.
"At the first sign of controversy, you killed me off with a drug overdose, but you know what? I ain’t dead b*tches."
Barr also tweeted the same comments back in October last year, before promptly deleting them. In an interview with HBO's Vice News Tonight, Barr also said she had no plans to watch ABC's The Conners -- the series that planned to continue telling the story of her on-screen family without her.
"I'm not going to condemn it or say anything bad about it either," she told Vice News, "I'm just moving on from it."
Apparently, she may not have moved on from it just yet.
