Comedy superstar, award-winning actress, best-selling author, 2012 presidential candidate and the original domestic goddess, Roseanne Barr continues to amaze. After 29 years, 224 episodes, 4 Emmy awards, and countless other accolades, it’s safe to say she has single-handedly re-landscaped the medium of comedy forever.
Roseanne began her career as a stand-up comedian, turning her experiences as a wife and mother into a hilarious comedy act that audiences couldn't resist. She subsequently produced and starred in the hit sitcom Roseanne, which ran for nine seasons and averaged a staggering 30 million viewers each week. The role earned her an Emmy Award as well as a Golden Globe, the prestigious Peabody Award, Kids' Choice and multiple American Comedy Awards. Barr also had her own talk show, which earned her a Daytime Emmy Award nomination as outstanding talk show host.
After several big-screen roles as well, Roseanne has returned to her love for live performance. She continues to be «a voice for the voiceless”, fighting the BDS movement in Israel, thwarting GMO efforts in Hawaii, aiding Native American families of Pine Ridge, and advocating for other causes.
