Last time Roseanne Barr directed her own comedy special – 2006 blonde and whore for HBO George W. Bush was in the Oval Office, a Pirates of the Caribbean the sequel starring Johnny Depp topped the box office charts and Justin Timberlake got “Sexy Back” on the radio. Fast forward to 2023, and all three of those men now hold somewhat dubious places in American political and popular culture…as does Barr herself.

The always outspoken comedian announces his current persona non grata status in the title of his first new comedy special in over 15 years: Roseanne Barr: Undo this! Yahoo Entertainment premieres an exclusive clip from the special — premiering Feb. 13 on Fox Nation — featuring Barr’s take-no-prisoners brand of comedy, with jokes about long COVID and why his grandkids aren’t welcome at his house when they do they have “green snot” coming out of their nose.

In the clip, Barr reveals that he’s had four bouts with “the COVID” since the pandemic began in 2020. “I’ve lost all taste,” he adds. “You know, I don’t even taste or even smell, all this time. But I’m looking at it like it’s a silver lining in the COVID cloud because I don’t eat that much! I don’t want to eat it all because it doesn’t taste that good, so I lost some weight.”

Barr’s road to cancellation began in 2018, when he posted a racist tweet about Valerie Jarret, a former adviser to President Barack Obama, which suggested that the Iranian-born government official had ties to the Muslim Brotherhood. At the time, she was starring in a revival of her 1980s ABC sitcom which she defined the era, Rosanna. In the aftermath of her tweet, Barr – who was already a vocal supporter of President Donald Trump – was fired from the series and her alter ego was killed off between seasons. When the show returned that fall, it was rebranded The Conners and focused on the rest of the family, including John Goodman and Sarah Gilbert. (The Conners is currently airing its fifth season on ABC.)

Talking to the Los Angeles Times ahead of the debut of her comedy special, Barr clarified that she still wasn’t happy with her exit from the series she created. “They denied me the right to apologize,” she noted. “They hate me because I’m talented, because I have an opinion. Even though Rosanna it became their No. 1 show. 1, they would rather not have a #1 show.

Barr also revealed that he “can’t stand” to watch The Conners in its current form. “When they killed my character, that was a message to me, knowing I’m mentally ill or have mental health issues, that they wanted me to kill myself. They killed my character and my character. say thank you for bringing 28 million viewers, that they never had before and will never see again. Because they can kiss my ass.

But Barr also struck a more optimistic note when discussing his return to stand-up. “I’m so glad this is the most offensive stand-up I’ve ever dared to be,” he said, adding that it was initially “terrifying” to stand up again in front of a crowd. “It just got easier and easier. People showed me so much love. I was overwhelmed by it. I was so happy that when I looked into the audience there, the bond between me and them wasn’t broken.”
