Sitcom legend Roseanne Barr will make her triumphant return to the spotlight with her new comedy special, “Roseanne Barr: Cancel This!”
The show debuts on Monday, February 13 on Fox Nation.
The one-hour program marks Barr’s first return to a stand-up comedy special in nearly 20 years.
The first teaser for the show, which aired during Sunday’s NFC Championship Game between the Philadelphia Eagles and the San Francisco 49ers, shows the comedian commentating on her 2018 termination by ABC.
“Has anyone else been fired recently?” she asks.
The question is followed by her famous laugh.
Fox Nation president Jason Klarman said earlier: “Roseanne is a comedy icon whose humor connects with the American audience like no other.
“Her ability to channel the challenges of everyday people and find the humor in it all has earned her the passionate following of millions of dedicated fans.”

ABC canceled Roseanne after she made some bad jokes on Twitter.
Barr apologized but that did not matter.
She said at the time:
“I apologize to Valerie Jarrett and to all Americans.
“I am truly sorry for making a bad joke about her politics and her looks.
“I should have known better.
“Forgive me-my joke was in bad taste.”
According to Fox News:
“’Roseanne Barr: Cancel This!’ was filmed in front of a live studio audience in Houston, Texas at the Cullen Theatre and features Ms. Barr’s signature comedic take on a variety of topics, from her experiences growing up Jewish in the Mormon citadel of Salt Lake City, moving to Texas, and raising her privileged brood.
“In conjunction with the comedy special, FOX Nation will release ‘Who Is Roseanne Barr?’, an in-depth look inside the life and career of Ms. Barr.
“Featuring more than 5,000 hours of content, the subscription service includes conservative opinion programming, lifestyle, and entertainment content, as well as historical documentaries and investigative series…
