Carol Burnett is a comedienne, actress, singer and writer, perhaps best known for her CBS come­dy-variety program The Carol Burnett Show, which ran from 1967 to 1979 and received 22 Emmy Awards. In 1959, she made her off-Broadway debut in the musical Once Upon a Mattress, which subsequently moved to Broadway. That same year she became a regular on The Garry Moore Show, a comedy variety show for which she won an Emmy in 1962. Her many film credits include Pete ‘n’ Tillie, The Front Page, A Wedding, directed by Robert Altman, Four Seasons and Annie. In 1990, Burnett earned a Tony nomination for her performance in the comedy Moon Over Buffalo, opposite Philip Bosco, and she returned to Broadway in 1999 in the Stephen Sondheim revue, Putting It Together. Ms. Burnett’s mem­oir, One More Time, the inspiration for Hollywood Arms, was published by Random House in 1986.
