Roseanne Barr to perform live podcast at NYC comedy club

Roseanne Barr will be in Manhattan on Thursday night at Stand Up NY to perform a live podcast with Rabbi Shmuley Boteach.

The celebrity rabbi has already interviewed Barr since she was fired from her ABC show after posting a racist tweet, and he’s urged people to forgive her.

“She’s a stand-up comic at heart,” venue owner Dani Zoldan told The Post of the event that’s being dubbed “Barr’d.”

“I sympathize with her on that front. That’s why I’m allowing this podcast. The liberal Upper West Side is not going to be OK with having her on their turf, but we’re a comedy club . . . We don’t censor our comics.”

We hear that security will be beefed up for the occasion with the venue bringing in two bodyguards, and Barr may also bring her own security.

“There might be hecklers; if [there are,] they’ll be thrown out. We don’t want it to get out of hand,” Zoldan said.

The space has previously hosted controversial figures such as Ann Coulter, Gavin McInnes and Milo Yiannopoulos, as well as lefty filmmaker Michael Moore.

“I don’t personally agree with Roseanne’s politics, but I do believe in freedom of speech,” Zoldan said.

Doors open at 7 p.m.
