  • Roseanne Barr, Andrew Dice Clay join forces for comedy tour

Barr, 66, announced a new stand-up comedy tour on Instagram on Sunday night, revealing that she is partnering with fellow comedian Andrew Dice Clay for the new project, titled "Mr. and Mrs. America".

Clay said the tour was inspired by the national obsession with political discourse and the policing of comedians' language.

Clay, 61, and Barr, 66, have known one another for almost three decades, and the Brooklyn native doesn't believe the "Roseanne" star truly has a mean bone in her body.

"She's a comic because she's wacky", Clay told Fox News. "I've known her since we were kids", he said. "When people ask about what she said, I say, 'She's a comic!' We gotta stop policing comedians".

Roseanne Barr tweeted a racist comment early Tuesday morning about former Obama aide Valerie Jarrett.

Clay performed with Barr in March at The Laugh Factory in Las Vegas.

Barr, 66, will be at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Atlantic City on September 20 as part of her joint tour with Clay, called the "Mr. and Mrs. America Tour". The performance was her first since being fired by ABC. Barr apologized at the time (and initially blamed her remarks on sleeping drug Ambien), but the damage was done.

But the show moved on without her. Retitled "The Conners", the series killed off Barr's central character with an opioid overdose. He was banned for life by MTV for his scandalous comedy and has been the subject of several protests.

The Brooklyn-born comedian, who has been criticized for misogynistic and homophobic material, became the first to sell out Madison Square Garden for two consecutive nights in 1990.

Clay also posted the photo to his own social media account. Tickets for the Long Island and Atlantic City dates go on sale Friday.
