Carol Burnett – This Time Together

This Time Together is 100 percent Carol Burnett: funny, irreverent, and irresistible.

Carol Burnett is one of the most beloved and revered actresses and performers in America. The Carol Burnett Show was seen each week by millions of adoring fans and won 25 Emmys in its remarkable 11-year run. Now, in This Time Together, Carol really lets her hair down and tells one funny or touching or memorable story after another. Listening to it feels like sitting down with an old friend who has wonderful tales to tell.

In engaging anecdotes, Carol discusses her remarkable friendships with such stars as Jimmy Stewart, Lucille Ball, Cary Grant, and Julie Andrews; the background behind famous scenes, like the moment she swept down the stairs in her curtain-rod dress in the legendary “Went With the Wind” skit; and things that would happen only to Carol. Those include the prank with Julie Andrews that went wrong in front of the First Lady; the famous Tarzan Yell that saved her during a mugging; and the time she faked a wooden leg to get served in a famous ice-cream emporium. This poignant look back allows us to cry with the actress during her sorrows, rejoice in her successes, and finally, always, to laugh.

Carol Burnett has lived an amazing life. She has intimately known so many that have become historic and classic film and television personalities. Her variety show can still make you laugh so hard your face hurts. This audiobook, read by Carol herself, tells the story of her journey from a poor non-working actress and singer to the most successful comedic variety show on television. There are times I was laughing out loud and times I was crying without shame, all while feeling I was sitting on the couch across from Carol listening to her story. Buy this book.
