Comedy legend Carol Burnett tells the hilarious behind-the-scenes story of her iconic weekly variety series, The Carol Burnett Show.
CAROL BURNETT has been an actor on Broadway, on television, and in the movies. She has been awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom, The Mark Twain Prize for Humor and the Kennedy Center Honors, among other singular achievements of a woman comedian who was nothing less than a pioneer and a role model for stars like Tina Fey, Amy Pohler and Amy Schumer.
"In this light, behind-the-scenes memoir, [Burnett] pays tribute to
the many talented individuals responsible for the show's enduring
success, [sharing] some of the hilarious impromptu moments on the
set and sheds light on the many memorable sketches, including the
movie parodies that have become classic TV." --Kirkus
Reviews The great comedian [Carol Burnett] filled America's
living rooms with pratfalls and Tarzan yells.... Carol Burnett's
new memoir, In Such Good Company, captures this zaniness
with relish. Written in Burnett's laughing voice, the book
chronicles how she prepared her weekly dose of mayhem....
Resonating with Burnett's lively enthusiasm, In Such Good
Company captures the excitement of being there once again, and
it's a joyous addition to her earlier memoirs. --The Washington
