Publisher's Summary

This Time Together is 100 percent Carol Burnett: funny, irreverent, and irresistible.

Carol Burnett is one of the most beloved and revered actresses and performers in America. The Carol Burnett Show was seen each week by millions of adoring fans and won 25 Emmys in its remarkable 11-year run. Now, in This Time Together, Carol really lets her hair down and tells one funny or touching or memorable story after another. Listening to it feels like sitting down with an old friend who has wonderful tales to tell.

In engaging anecdotes, Carol discusses her remarkable friendships with such stars as Jimmy Stewart, Lucille Ball, Cary Grant, and Julie Andrews; the background behind famous scenes, like the moment she swept down the stairs in her curtain-rod dress in the legendary "Went With the Wind" skit; and things that would happen only to Carol. Those include the prank with Julie Andrews that went wrong in front of the First Lady; the famous Tarzan Yell that saved her during a mugging; and the time she faked a wooden leg to get served in a famous ice-cream emporium. This poignant look back allows us to cry with the actress during her sorrows, rejoice in her successes, and finally, always, to laugh.

What the Critics Say

"I read This Time Together in one sitting and when I finished I felt like Carol had been sitting beside me telling me these wonderful stories of her life. It's funny, it's endearing and very moving. I cannot recommend it highly enough." (Julie Andrews)

"I grew up watching Carol Burnett. She's an amazing actress, talented writer and legendary comedienne. She inspired me to do what I'm doing today. And believe me, if I knew how to read, I would definitely read this book." (Ellen DeGeneres)

"Carol was a huge star on television because she was funny, daring, and always genuine. We loved Carol because we felt we knew her. With this book, we do. She trusts us with her personal anecdotes, happy, sad, hilarious and poignant. Thank you Carol." (Billy Crystal)

    "I love Carol Burnett... but not as a reader."

    I've listened to a couple memoirs read by the author now and I have come to the realization that I would prefer them to just tell us the story rather than to be reading the book... I guess that's my own problem - I should probably avoid the memoirs :) Although the passage about the death of her daughter was heartrending and her emotionality did add to the experience.

    "Love Carol Burnett & Want Her Other Books!"

    Thoroughly enjoyed listening to this lovely lady. There are so many good books out there, that it is hard to find the time to re-read anything. This one is so good and short enough, that I am sure I will return to it often. I only wish other books by her and read by her were on Audible!

    "A Good Book by Good Person"

    I am not a huge Carol Burnett fan, but I have always enjoyed her wit and creativity. She reveals what a normal person she is and shares many lovely inside stories and personal life experiences.

    "a life in show biz"

    Carol still has me laughing.... she sweetly tells of her start in the business and the subsequent 40 some years... with anecdotes and confessions .... if you need a mood boost this is a good one to try.

    "A jewel!"

    Carol Burnett gives a splendid performance reading this audiobook, award-worthy, in my opinion. The stories range from hilarious to heart-breaking. To hear them in her voice is to savor her talent, but what I appreciated most is her courage, kindness, and gratitude.

    "I Love Carol"

    I want to see that kind of show on television today. It was a rib cracker, and this book gives an insight to the making of that show. Really Great!
