Considered one of the most well-known female comedians in America, funny queen Roseanne Barr has been in the game for more than two decades.
Barr started out doing stand-up in comedy clubs and after her first appearance on "The Tonight Show," HBO released "The Roseanne Barr Show" in 1987. The series didn't last long, but a year later, Roseanne became a household name with her hit network sitcom, "Roseanne."
The show dealt with real-life issues in a lower-middle-class working family and within a year overtook "The Cosby Show" as the No. 1 show on television. It ran for nine seasons and won four Emmys, two Golden Globes, six People's Choice Awards, and many other accolades.
After her sitcom ended, she launched her own talk show, "The Roseanne Show," which aired from 1998-2000. She returned to stand-up comedy in 2005 with a world tour. In 2011, she starred in an unscripted Lifetime show, "Roseanne's Nuts." It lasted 16 episodes.
Roseanne also established herself as a successful author with the release of two best-selling books "Roseanne: My Life as a Woman" and "My Lives." She also wrote Roseannearchy: Dispatches from the Nut Farm."
Not only can she act, write and make her fans laugh, Barr proved to have a political side as well. She ran for president on the Peace and Freedom Party in early 2012. She received almost 50,000 votes in the general election, placing sixth overall.
