Funny lady Roseanne Barr has released her first stand-up special in two decades, during which she blasted so-called ‘woke’ agendas as well as cancel culture in general.

Barr’s special was released on Fox Nation, a subscriber-based streaming network launched by Fox News featuring original programming and specials that star many of the network’s top talent.

The special comes after Barr was fired from the 2018 reboot of her highly successful 1990s sitcom “Roseanne.” The reboot scored the highest ratings of a new TV series in years but she was dismissed by ABC after she tweeted about Obama White House adviser Valerie Jarrett that said, “Muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby=vj.”

Later, Barr apologized: “I apologize to Valerie Jarrett and to all Americans. I am truly sorry for making a bad joke about her politics and her looks. I should have known better. Forgive me — my joke was in bad taste.” But she was fired nonetheless.

Her special is called “Roseanne Barr: Cancel This!” and is her first new TV stand-up special in almost 20 years. It features her characteristic no-holds-barred comedy during which she declared, “My pronouns are, kiss my ass.”

At one point during the stand-up, Barr, 70, said of kids asking what gender they are, “What is my gender, mom? What is my gender? Your gender is, get a job. That’s your gender.”

“What are they thinking? Ask a — what is a woman?” she continues. “They don’t know that? That one they’re asking all the time. What is a woman? I’ll tell you what a woman is. A woman is me. That’s what a woman is, okay? A woman is someone who cleans up everybody else’s s***. That’s what a woman is.”

“A woman is somebody whose boobs hang down to her knees with a prolapsed uterus from giving birth to five ungrateful little privileged b*******s that have never had to work for anything in their whole damn life,” she jabbed.

Barr supported then-President Donald Trump and in 2019, after she was fired, she speculated that was a big reason why ABC let her go despite the success of the rebooted “Roseanne.”

“All of Hollywood, they just hate him and they hate those of us who like him. There is no way around it,” she said. “So, yeah, I think they took me off because I liked him, and I like him because I’m a Jew, and he likes Israel.”

She also discussed her firing this week with The Los Angeles Times.

“It was a witch-burning. And it was terrifying,” she recounted. “I would die many times. I guess you would call it the dark night of the soul. I felt like the devil himself was coming against me to try to tear me apart, to punish me for believing in God.”

“They didn’t do it to anyone else in Hollywood, although they always throw in Dave Chappelle and Louis C.K.,” she continued. “Well, Louis C.K. did lose everything, but he committed an actual [offense]. And Dave Chappelle was protected by Netflix. … I’m the only person who’s lost everything, whose life’s work was stolen, stolen by people who I thought loved me. And there was silence,” she continued.

Barr went on to say that she has forgiven everyone involved and that, ultimately, what happened was all part of God’s plan.

“I don’t think they’ll ever stop trying to come after me, particularly now that I am getting the last laugh on their a**. That’s why I’m coming back. I never would have that last laugh unless I’m strong enough to stand on two feet, and although I do have to wear adult diapers while doing it, I am not ever going to stop making fun of power and its arrogance, and I don’t give a f*** what color it is. I’ll be there. Make the most f***ing fun of it that I can before I croak,” she said.

Her special debuted on Fox Nation earlier this week and is currently streaming.
