Roseanne Barr coming to Penn's Peak
Penn’s Peak announces Roseanne Barr will be on stage at 8 p.m. May 4.
Comedy superstar, award-winning actress, best-selling author Roseanne Barr, won four Emmy Awards and countless other accolades.
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 Award, the prestigious Peabody Award, a Kids’ Choice Award and multiple American Comedy Awards.
In 2014, Barr became the center judge on NBC’s long-running series, “Last Comic Standing,” produced by Wanda Sykes. Barr is also the subject of a new documentary that chronicles her 2012 presidential campaign, “ROSEANNE FOR PRESIDENT!”
In recent years, the Salt Lake City native has guest starred on a variety of shows including “The Office,” “Portlandia” and “The Millers.” In January 2015, Barr returned to her sitcom roots when she appeared on ABC’s hit sitcom “Cristela,” which earned the show its highest rating of the season. Barr also had her own talk show, “The Roseanne Show,” which earned her a Daytime Emmy Award nomination for Outstanding Talk Show Host. Her big screen credits include “She Devil,” “Freddy’s Dead,” “Blue in the Face” and “Meet Wally Sparks.” She has also voiced characters in “Look Who’s Talking Too” and “Home on the Range.” She has written three books: “Roseanne: My Life as a Woman,” “My Lives” and, most recently, “Roseannearchy: Dispatches from the Nut Farm.”
A titan in the world of stand-up comedy, Barr returned to her love of live performance, touring select cities around the country and abroad. In addition to making people laugh, she 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, her activism is unwavering.
