If there is one thing this renowned entertainer can do better than anyone else, it’s talk at length, impromptu, before a live audience. Laughter and Reflection, Burnett’s "off-the-cuff" banter with the audience, is a format that grew out of the question-and-answer sessions she shared with her studio audience on each episode of The Carol Burnett Show. As a weekly visitor in America’s living rooms, Burnett always opened her show with a few minutes of hilarious banter with the audience. This is a rare opportunity to talk to Carol in the same enjoyable and intimate audience-interactive format. Carol told us, “I love the spontaneity of these evenings. I never know what anybody is going to say or do or ask, so it keeps me on my toes.” Come with your questions and share in the fun with one of the country’s most loved and respected performers.
Carol Burnett, award-winning actress and best-selling author, is widely recognized by the public and her peers for her work on stage and screen, most notably The Carol Burnett Show. Named in 2007 by TIME magazine as one of “100 Best Television Shows of All Time,” The Carol Burnett Show ran for 11 years, averaged 30 million viewers per week, and received 25 Emmy Awards, making it one of the most honored shows in television history. But it is Ms. Burnett’s artistic brilliance, her respect and appreciation of her fans, and her graciousness, integrity, warmth, and humor on and off screen that have made her one of the most beloved performers in entertainment and one of the most admired women in America.
As a highly acclaimed actress, Ms. Burnett has been honored with Emmys, Golden Globes, People’s Choice Awards, the Horatio Alger Award, an Ace Award, and the Peabody. A Kennedy Center Honoree, she has also been honored with the Kennedy Center Mark Twain Prize for Humor, the Presidential Medal of Freedom, was inducted into the Television Hall of Fame, and has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. In 2013 the City of Los Angeles named the intersection of Highland Avenue and Selma directly adjacent to her alma mater, Hollywood High School, Carol Burnett Square.
