31 Roseanne Roseannadanna Quotes From The Hilarious SNL Character

Roseanne Roseannadanna's character is based on Eyewitness News' Anchorwoman Rose Ann Scamardella

Gilda Radner played Roseanne Roseannadanna on the prime-time American comedy show 'Saturday Night Live'.

Roseanne Roseannadanna was brought into Saturday Night Live to read fan mails from one Mr. Richard Feder. She would then answer a series of questions from the mail, which quickly turns the entire segment into something irrelevant.

Roseanne's hilarious ways of drifting away from the current affair questions from her mails to a story she experienced with some random celebrities are the highlights of her play. She completely ignores the topic at hand and continues to discuss cleanliness and body, all the while asking unanswerable questions. She has also introduced some popular catchphrases at that time either by herself or by some of her guests, including the infamous phrase when Roseanne Roseannadanna quotes "Nevermind", said by Emily Litella during her first appearance on SNL.

Gilda Radner is also known to end her segment with a long and unrelated rant about various topics except for what is to be discussed when finally her co-anchor would make her stop, following which she concludes by saying, "It just goes to show you. It's always something. If it's not one thing, it's another."

We bring some of Roseanne Roseannadanna's hilarious lines from SNL, and once done, do check out our Gilda Radner Quotes and Stuart Smalley Quotes.
