Legendary comedian Carol Burnett returns to DSM Civic Center
DES MOINES — Legendary entertainer Carol Burnett returns to Des Moines Performing Arts’ Civic Center for an exclusive one-day engagement of her Q & A format, “Laughter and Reflection with Carol Burnett: A Conversation with Carol where the Audience Asks the Questions,” at 3 p.m. Sunday, May 19.
If there is one thing this renowned entertainer can do better than anyone else, it is talk at length, impromptu, before a live audience. In “Laughter and Reflection with Carol Burnett,” an off-the-cuff banter with the audience, is a format that grew out of the question-and-answer sessions she shared with her studio audience on each episode of “The Carol Burnett Show.” As a weekly visitor in America’s living rooms, Burnett always opened her show with a few minutes of hilarious banter with the audience. This is a rare opportunity to talk to Burnett in the same enjoyable and intimate audience-interactive format. Audience members are encouraged to come with questions and share in the fun with one of the country’s most loved and respected performers.
Following the 11-year run of “The Carol Burnett Show,” the six-time Emmy Award winner is now widely recognized for her dramatic abilities as well as her comedic and stage talents. In addition to being a best-selling author and a Grammy nominee, she is a recipient of the Kennedy Center Honors and The Presidential Medal of Freedom.
