Blue Note Hawaii, the state’s premier venue for the world’s most celebrated artists, announces two nights of comedy with television superstar and award-winning actress, Roseanne Barr. The original domestic goddess Roseanne Barr will amaze audiences November 4 and 5, with one show nightly at 8:00 p.m (Doors open at 6:30).After 9 years, 224 episodes, 4 Emmy Awards, and countless other accolades, you couldn’t blame Roseanne if she wanted to quietly slip away, able to take solace in the fact she single-handedly re-landscaped the medium of situational comedy forever. Her creation and stark portrayal of “Roseanne Conner” and the Conner family on ABC’s Roseanne has been hailed as “the most ground breaking kitchen-sink sitcom since All in the Family,” (Entertainment Weekly) adding, “she’s the funniest disturber of peace that we have.”
She 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 on her own hit sitcom, “Roseanne,” which ran for nine seasons and averaged a staggering 30 million viewers each week. The role earned Barr an Emmy Award, a Golden Globe, the prestigious Peabody Award, Kids Choice and multiple American Comedy Awards.
At Full Moon and High Tide Studio (FMHT), Barr’s family-run Production Company, she is currently spearheading numerous projects. The studio produced her first DVD for children, titled “Rockin’ with Roseanne: Calling All Kids!” which was inspired by Barr’s grandchildren. FMHT has produced original programming for VH1 and also produced her 4th HBO comedy special “Roseanne Barr: Blonde and Bitchin'” as well as numerous videos for Roseanne’s YouTube channel.
A titan in the world of stand-up comedy, Roseanne returned to her love for live performance, touring select cities around the country and abroad. In addition to making people laugh, Roseanne continues to be a “voice for the voiceless.” Whether it be fighting the BDS movement in Israel, thwarting GMO efforts on the Big Island in Hawaii, aiding the native American families of Pine Ridge, or advocating for the legalization of marijuana, Roseanne’s activism is unwavering.
