Joy Behar, former co-host of ABC's "The View," will be featured in a one-woman off-Broadway show "Me, My Mouth and I" at New York City's Cherry Lane Theatre in November.

Behar sat in one of the four co-host chairs of "The View" for 16 years before leaving earlier this year in one of the biggest makeovers for the show. According to The Associated Press, she will talk about her time on the show along with her childhood growing up in Brooklyn.

"This is a good time to take stock of my shenanigans," the comedian told the AP about her show.

Behar told Newsday in September that after nearly two decades on "The View," she knew it was time to move on.

"I also had two of my own shows while I was on 'The View,'" said Behar. "After you have your own show, it's very hard to be on a panel following other people's rules. It was a tipping point for me. I was finished with that format. I didn't want it anymore."

Behar recently defended the return of Rosie O'Donnell to the show, slamming another former co-host, Elisabeth Hasselbeck, for comments the Fox News host made about O'Donnell back in July.

"The very woman who spit in the face of our military, spit in the face of her own network, and really in the face of a person who stood by her and had civilized debates for the time that she was there," Hasselbeck said in July about then rumored return of O'Donnell, according to the New York Daily News.

Behar fired back shortly after Hasselbeck made those comments, according to the Huffington Post, criticizing her comments during a CNN interview.

"I would like Elisabeth to explain herself," Behar said during the interview with CNN Don Lemon. "What does she mean by that? And isn't it kind of a nasty thing to say about somebody who basically is a good person?

"That's a dangerous thing to say about somebody. ... I think it's a hate-filled remark. And she should explain it," said Behar.

The Cherry Lane Theatre, which celebrated its 90th birthday on Monday, is New York's longest continuously running off-Broadway theatre, according to the venue's website.
