Jewish comedians Roseanne Barr and Andrew Dice Clay are hitting the road. The pair, whose mouths have gotten them into trouble—she was fired from ‘Rosanne” for racist comments about former White House advisor Valerie Jarrett and his sexist, homophobic and profane act once got him banned from MTV— are joining forces for the “Mr. and Mrs. America” stand-up tour.
Clay and Barr, who last performed together in March at the Laugh Factory in Las Vegas, have been friends for 30 years. Clay defended right to speak her mind to Fox News, saying, “She’s a comic! We gotta stop policing comedians…America really needs to lighten up and not worry about the words comedians use because it’s all we have,” Clay said. “There’s clean stuff and there’s street stuff. I’m a street guy because I tell it like it is.”
