Barr: Wiser, Older, Still Funny

It will do a heart good to find that Roseanne Barr is still funny.
Barr careens around society, skewering religion, diets, mental illness and drugs, getting old and parenthood. And, yes, like many other frustrated liberal comics, Barr can't resist explaining her hatred for Pres. Bush.
In an interview featurette on the disc, Barr says 9/11 was the impetus for getting off her butt and performing her new material. That also explains her show-stopping, fear-conquering finale, with a courageous kimono-dropping tapdance and her own take on Frank Sinatra's "My Way."
Don't miss the extras, especially two seemingly improvisational sketches that find Barr backstage before the show as straight woman to a heavily-made-up transvestite makeup artist and an absurd motivational coach who mixes so many metaphors, numbers and symbols that his message is deliciously stupid.
Not bad for Roseanne.

"It seems that since her tv show Roseanne has been lacking in her standup. Her old stuff was hilarious but then getting a cable tv show seemed to chang all that.
Yet she is absolutely hilarious in this special. At times she seems to be too preachy with some of her material (namely the government) but since I see both sides of things it didn't bother me so much. A lot of her material was on the floor funny but some was just boring, unfunny and trying too hard to be witty and failing.
Overall if you like her and her stuff and can laugh at a plethora of subjects, then watch this. If you can't take a joke at face value, stay away; it might offend you and your beliefs."
