This Time Together: Laughter and Reflection

Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: Carol Burnett

Narrated By: Carol Burnett

Publisher: Random House (Audio)

Date: April 2010

Duration: 5 hours 30 minutes

Summary:

This touching and hilarious memoir 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 twenty-five Emmys in its remarkable eleven-year run. Now, in This Time Together, Carol really lets her hair down and tells one funny or touching or memorable story after another.
 
In engaging anecdotes, Carol discusses her remarkable friendships with stars such at 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--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.

    Loved the show! The only show I can watch over and over. I read the book a few years ago. This is my first audio book ever. I enjoyed just listening to Carol Burnett's voice.

    I loved her show and think she is very funny but this book is more of a Guess you had to be there type of book.

    This is one of the most wonderful books I have listened to in a long while. Carol Burnett is a gift to the world and certainly an icon not only for her talent, but for who she is as a person. She has opened so many avenues for women and in comedy, film, business and life. She shares experiences, both great and tragic and always with love, grace and respect. I know I have learned not just only to appreciate comedy, but to be true to who you are from growing up watching her. This is a fabulous listen and my only disappointment was when it ended. This should be on everyones rental list.
