“Carol Burnett Night” to be featured April 9 on PBS
PBS has announced “Carol Burnett Night,” Tuesday, April 9, (check local listings) comprised of two shows chronicling the longtime success of the television comedy icon in conjunction with the release of her new memoir.
An encore of the 90-minute “AMERICAN MASTERS Carol Burnett: A Woman of Character” begins the night, followed by a 30-minuted encore edition of the PBS series “PIONEERS OF TELEVSION” titled “Carol Burnett and the Funny Ladies.”
Summaries of the programs and the memoir, provided by PBS, are as follows:
AMERICAN MASTERS “Carol Burnett: A Woman of Character” airs Tuesday, April 9, 2013, 7-8:30 p.m.. The show salutes this one-woman army of comedic characters who seduced countless Saturday night friends to fall in love with her and her wacky creations. The film is directed by Kyra Thompson, who frames the 90-minute film with one of Burnett¹s signature devices: the audience Q&A that faithfully opened her weekly show (which won 25 Emmy Awards from 1967 to 1978). The questions and Burnett¹s hilarious improvised responses provide the spine for a story of her life and career. Interviews with those who knew her best reveal the personal side of the public personae.
