The Comedy of Carol Burnett
For 11 years beginning in 1967, Carol Burnett was the undisputed leader in television entertainment. On her long-running program for the CBS television network, The Carol Burnett Show, the multi-talented and gifted comedienne expanded and upgraded the concept of the television variety show, mixing song and dance routines, elegant costumes, and zany humor sketches in ways that appealed to a massive audience. This lecture will explore the career of this much-beloved American icon through the use of numerous video clips.
