One comedian with a long history of seeing his controversial content banned is teaming up with another entertainer who famously lost her sitcom gig for her offensive tweets.
In a new tour titled “Mr. and Mrs. America,” 61-year-old Andrew “Dice” Clay and 66-year-old Roseanne Barr will take to the stage with their newest, and potentially bluest, material.
Clay isn’t letting the recent bad press surrounding his longtime friend get in the way of an opportunity to work with Barr.
“She’s a comic because she’s wacky,” he said. “I’ve known her since we were kids. When people ask about what she said, I say, ‘She’s a comic!’ We’ve got to stop policing comedians. This is America!”
The pair performed together earlier this year in a performance at a Las Vegas comedy club. Their new tour is set to begin in New York later this year.
