    About The Carol Burnett Show
    While there’s no truth to the rumor that “CBS” ever stood for The Carol Burnett Show, for eleven seasons and 278 episodes, this star-studded extravaganza of sketch comedy, song and dance became entertainment central for the network and TV viewers. Burnett operated in a relaxed theater setting that allowed her to take questions, cut loose with her famous Tarzan yell and join fellow performers Harvey Korman, Vicki Lawrence and Lyle Waggoner to have a laugh or sing a song. The show received 25 Emmy Awards and eight Golden Globes, making it one of the most honored shows in television history.

    What makes it so funny, is that they try not to laugh, and cant hold it back. This was absolutely true comedy.

    96 losers thumbed down this clip as of my post. I'm 100% positive that x% of the USclip population goes around doing nothing but randomly thumbing stuff down, cuz this warrants zero thumbs down. Honestly? How could anyone not like this? LOSERS. I pity you idiots. Honestly.

    "I'll get it next time, Clark." I think this is a reference to Clark Kent/Superman, but what exactly is it referencing?

    Never found Carol sexier than in this sketch,she looks more fresh faced as an "old woman" than in any of her other skits and the hair is more blonde than gray. Love it !!!

    Some of the funniest moments from the Carol Burnett show are the actors trying not to crack up during the skits! Wish we still had comedy like this today.
