Roseanne Barr Turns 60: Happy Birthday, Mrs. Conner!

Roseanne Birthday

Actress, comedienne, and presidential candidate Roseanne Barr turns 60 today (November 3). As such, fans should find some time in their busy schedules today for a few episodes of her classic television sitcom.

After moving to Colorado at the age of 18, Barr began doing stand-up comedy gigs are various clubs throughout Denver. She soon developed a strong following which prompted appearances on The Tonight Show in 1985 and Late Night with David Letterman in 1986. Her The Roseanne Barr Show comedy special debuted on HBO in 1987.

Barr was originally offered the role of Peg Bundy in the popular 80s sitcom Married … with Children, though she ultimately turned it down. A few years later, she would launch her own situation comedy, simply titled Roseanne.

The series, which followed the trials and tribulations of the Conner family, starred John Goodman, Sara Gilbert, Alicia Goranson, Michael Fishman, and Emmy Award winner Laurie Metcalf. The series would enjoy nine seasons before coming to an end in 1997.

After the conclusion of her sitcom, Roseanne Barr ventured into the world of daytime TV. The actress’ chat program The Roseanne Show ran from 1998 until 2000. Following its cancellation, Barr would ultimately disappear from the small screen for several long years.

In 2005, the comedienne embarked on lengthy stand-up tour that would take her around the globe. However, the call of televised success proved too much to take; Barr returned to TV with the 2011 unscripted drama Roseanne’s Nuts which followed the actress as she operated a macadamia nut and livestock farm in Hawaii.

Recently, Barr has set her sights on the White House. The actress, who supports the legalization of marijuana and believes Romney is pro-rape, hopes to be elected president next week.

“The legalization of marijuana is the way to end all Drug Wars and stop the monopoly of the subsidized prison systems,” Roseanne explained. “Our government and corporations are getting paid every time someone goes to prison for non-violent crimes due to marijuana arrests. Drug laws need to be rewritten to make them sane and people based. We need to end the prohibition on marijuana and legalize it.”

Although Roseanne Barr turns 60 today, it doesn’t appear that the actress, comedienne, and politician is slowing down anytime soon. Happy Birthday!

    it's funny how so many people dislike someone who had a Tv show that wasn't all smiles, and perfect people, but yet instead very close to the average middle class american family. Not to mention that someone being a celebrity who's not afraid to speak the truth about their government. Americans are Stupid and like it that way. I weep for my country.

    She's correct about almost everything and it make her day that the right wing hates her. If she'd only sing the National Anthem again.

    Happy Birthday Roseanne. I just got my daughter hooked on Roseanne the TV show. She says to me "Momma she reminds me a lot of you." This is the best compliment I have ever received. If my daughter see's a strong confident woman with a caring heart I know I must be doing something right. May the world bring you laughter and smiles for this day and many more to come.
