See trailer for Rosie O’Donnell’s new HBO special
Long before The View, A :League of Their Own and all the rest, Rosie O’Donnell made a name for herself by winning the stand-up comic competition on TV’s Star Search.
Rosie returns to those roots in an upcoming HBO stand-up special.
Rosie O’Donnell: A Heartfelt Stand Up premieres Saturday, February 14 at 10PM and features Rosie in a hybrid form of standup comedy, inspired by her recent near-fatal heart attack.
She shares her experience with heart disease, the leading cause of death among American women, and explores topics ranging from the challenges of raising five children to her obsession with Barbra Streisand.
O’Donnell’s return to the stage is directed by Dan Chaykin.
