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.

Do not listen while driving

One of the best books I've ever listened to, but I don't recommend listening while driving though. I laughed and cried so hard it was hard to pay attention to what I was doing. GREAT BOOK!

Laughter is the best medicine!

Dear Audible Reader,
Please read this book! You will agree, I'm sure, that it was completely worth it. Carol IS comedy. The things they do in comedy skits, she did in real life. What a joy to hear her read this herself. I wish it were longer, the time just flew by! What a wonderful woman, comedian and mother. Thank you Carol, for giving us this book...what a wonderful gift!
