No One in Raleigh, NC Wants to See Roseanne Barr’s Stand Up Comedy Show, Ditto Detroit and Fort Wayne, Indiana


Roseanne Barr is busy blaming Sara Gilbert for her implosion on TV and the end of the “Roseanne” show. This is her latest gambit in fobbing off blame for her racist Tweets about Valerie Jarrett. Since then, Barr has dug her own career grave attacking AOC and making all kinds of crazy comments.

None of her publicity has helped sell tickets for her five upcoming stand up comedy dates. In Raleigh, NC, Ft Wayne, Indiana, Detroit, Michigan, her arena dates in May have been left unsold. You can get a ticket at any of these places. Or ten tickets. Or twenty.

Roseanne has only sold a few tickets to two dates. One of them is in a place called Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania. Since Jim Thorpe was born in Oklahoma and died in California, I don’t know why there’s a town named for him between Scranton and Wilkes Barre. Also, some tickets have been sold at the small Lerner Theater in Indiana.

Otherwise, Roseanne may have to cancel those big arenas if sales don’t pick up soon. She’s become a tragic figure, that’s for sure.
