If there is one thing this renowned entertainer can do better than anyone else, it is talk at length, impromptu, before a live audience. Burnett's 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". 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.
