Legendary entertainer Carol Burnett comes to the Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts for Laughter and Reflection with Carol Burnett: A Conversation with Carol where the Audience Asks the Questions. If there is one thing this renowned entertainer can do better than anyone else, it is 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 Ms. Burnett in the same enjoyable and intimate audience-interactive format. Come with your questions and share in the fun with one of the country's most loved and respected performers.
Six-time Emmy Award winner Carol Burnett has demonstrated such versatility since ending the 11 year run of The Carol Burnett Show that she is now as widely recognized for her dramatic abilities as she is for her comedic and musical talents. Americans fondly consider Carol Burnett a true living legend in entertainment, having bestowed more People's Choice Awards upon her than any other woman in the award show's history. In 2003 she 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.
