    Roseanne Barr

    A self-proclaimed "domestic goddess," Roseanne Barr brought her particular brand of blue-collar family-centric humor to the small screen with her '90s 
eponymous sitcom full of brutally 
honest wisecracks. These days, she's straying from comedy to make a 
serious run for president. She's vying for a spot on the Green Party ticket, which just might lead to the funniest inauguration speech in history. And come August, Barr will step off the campaign trail to feel the burn as the next Roast victim on Comedy Central, hosted by the equally clever Jane Lynch.
