New York Times bestselling author and living legend Carol Burnett tells the hilarious behind-the-scenes story of the iconic Carol Burnett Show.

Only Carol Burnett has the timing, talent, and wit to pull back the curtain on the Emmy Award–winning Carol Burnett Show and share the stories of the guests, skits, and antics that made it legendary. This book is Burnett’s love letter to a golden era in television through the lens of her brilliant show. She skillfully dissects the elements that made the show so successful for eleven lively years—putting the spotlight on everyone from her guest stars to her costars, her celebrated costume designer to her funny cameramen.

Written with all the charm, wit, and humor that fans expect from this masterful entertainer, Burnett covers all the topics listeners want to know more about:

  • How the hour-long variety show came to be, in spite of the misgivings of some CBS vice presidents.
  • How she discovered and hired Harvey Korman, Vicki Lawrence, Lyle Waggoner, and Tim Conway.
  • Anecdotes about guest stars, such as: Lucille Ball, Bing Crosby, Betty Grable, Steve Lawrence, Eydie Gorme, James Garner, Gloria Swanson, Rita Hayworth, and Steve Martin.
  • Carol’s favorite skits for the eleven year run.

Listeners will feel like they have the best seat in the house as Carol Burnett reminisces about the outrageous tales that made working on the show as much fun as watching it.
