Roseanne Barr Treats Andrew Dice Clay's Audience to Surprise Stand-Up Set

A day after the former 'Roseanne' star made her return to the stage at Tropicana's Laugh Factory, the 'A Star Is Born' actor turns to social media to explain why he is so proud of his fellow comedian.

AceShowbiz - Controversial comedienne Roseanne Barr returned to the stage in Las Vegas over the weekend for her first stand-up show since she was fired from her hit sitcom last year (2018).

The actress' revamped TV show "Roseanne" was axed by U.S. network bosses at ABC after she posted an ill-advised racist tweet about Valerie Jarrett, a top aide of former U.S. President Barack Obama.

The rest of the cast has since regrouped for spin-off sitcom "The Conners", while Roseanne has remained sidelined from Hollywood, after continuing to draw backlash after criticising victims of sexual misconduct amid the ongoing #MeToo campaign.

However, she made a surprise return to the stand-up stage on Saturday, March 16 as she joined her pal and fellow comedian Andrew Dice Clay at Tropicana's Laugh Factory.

Introducing the audience to Barr, Dice Clay said, "I've got a special treat for everybody. A close friend of about 33 years, she's a comedienne, and there haven't been many as controversial, as outspoken, and as f**king funny... Let's hear it for Roseanne Barr!".

The "A Star Is Born" actor posted video footage of Barr's unexpected appearance on Instagram, and took to Twitter on Sunday to defend the 66-year-old for the actions which cost her her lucrative TV gig.

"She Hadn't Been On Stage Since She Got Fired From ABC , And last Night Made So Many People Laugh ... And They Loved Her!" he wrote. "We are The Comedians Of This Crumbling World , But We are Human and Sometimes Screw Up , or Things (get) Taken The Wrong way !!! Our Job Tho , is To Keep you Laughing Amongst The KAOS (sic) Of a World going Through Pain !!!.

"She was Nervous and Afraid last Night , But Once the Audience Laughed ... She was Right Back in The Groove and Crushed !!! So Proud Of Her ... Love You Roseann (sic)".

The Vegas set will serve as a warm-up for Barr's own stand-up tour, which is due to launch in May.
