Laughter and Reflection with Carol Burnett:
A Conversation with Carol where the Audience
Asks Questions

Thursday, Sep 24, 2009 8pm
Orpheum Theatre


The VSO and Global ComedyFest are proud to present a very special evening with legendary and beloved entertainer Carol Burnett. The evening with Ms. Burnett last season was extraordinary, with a sold-out house and multiple standing ovations — the demand for this legendary performer's return has been overwhelming.

As a weekly visitor in America's living rooms, Carol Burnett always opened her show with a few minutes of hilarious banter with the audience. LAUGHTER AND REFLECTION: A CONVERSATION WITH CAROL WHERE THE AUDIENCE ASKS THE QUESTIONS is a rare opportunity to talk to Carol in the same enjoyable and intimate audience-interactive format. Carol says, "I love the spontaneity of these evenings. I never know what anybody is going to say or do or ask." Come with your questions and share in the fun with one of America's most loved and respected performers.

Carol Burnett is a true living legend in entertainment — an actress, comedian, singer, dancer, and writer who spent an acclaimed eleven year run on the groundbreaking Carol Burnett Show, which aired on CBS Television from 1967 to 1978. A six-time Emmy Award-winner, in 2003 Ms. Burnett was a recipient of the Kennedy Center Honors, and in 2005 received the Presidential Medal of Freedom. Some of her other notable awards include five Golden Globes, the Peabody Award for "Friendly Fire", and the Ace Award for "Between Friends" with Elizabeth Taylor. She has enjoyed the kind of career that most performers only dream of, moving easily from the stage to television to feature films.
