This touching and hilarious memoir is 100 percent Carol Burnett -- funny, irreverent, and irresistible.Carol Burnett is one of the most beloved and revered actresses and performers in America. The Carol Burnett Show was seen each week by millions of adoring fans and won twenty-five Emmys in its remarkable eleven-year run. Now, in This Time Together, Carol really lets her hair down and tells one funny or touching or memorable story after another.  In engaging anecdotes, Carol discusses her remarkable friendships with stars such at Jimmy Stewart, Lucille Ball, Cary Grant, and Julie Andrews; the background behind famous scenes, like the moment she swept down the stairs in her curtain-rod dress in the legendary “Went With the Wind” skit; and things that would happen only to Carol--the prank with Julie Andrews that went wrong in front of the First Lady; the famous Tarzan Yell that saved her during a mugging; and the time she faked a wooden leg to get served in a famous ice cream emporium. This poignant look back allows us to cry with the actress during her sorrows, rejoice in her successes, and finally, always, to laugh.

I just finished reading This Time Together: Laughter and Reflection by Carol Burnett. There is just something about hearing her name that automatically puts a smile on your face. Could it be her infectious smile? Perhaps it is the familiar warmth she exudes when we see on onscreen or onstage. Still, it could be just bringing laughter into our lives. Whatever it is, I know that for me, Carol Burnett has brought great joy to my life over the years.

I have such fond memories of Carol growing up. My family and I would watch her weekly variety show...it was almost like a tradition! The cast, guest stars, fabulous costumes and great skits were so worth the wait. It's a shame that variety shows are no longer a part of today's television viewing options.

Reading This Time Together: Laughter and Reflection, allowed me a chance to reminisce about my childhood and the reasons why I love Ms. Burnett so much. With every word, I could hear her voice and found myself smiling as she told her stories of her humble beginnings, and ultimately how she made it to television.

The behind the scenes look into her career and family life were inspiring. Carol Burnett is the epitome of class. I don't think there is anything that could tarnish her image. She represents what we should all aspire to be, whether celebrity or not.

This Time Together: Laughter and Reflection by Carol Burnett is a heartwarming collection of stories from one of the most beloved actresses of our time. It is also a reminder of when life was much simpler, and all we had to worry about was where we were going to sit when we turned on her show. In my house, there were no bad seats!

I loved reading this book and now hope to read the others she has written. If you're looking for some lighthearted reading, and want to put a smile on your face, then pick up a copy of This Time Together: Laughter and Reflection!
Sorryyy
I think this is an utterly delightful memoir. In this book, Ms. Burnett revisits some of her favorite stories based on audience Q & A from her variety show and other public appearances. She also adds some stories that are meaningful to her. I listened to this as an audiobook, read by the author. I think that made it all the more enjoyable. It was like sitting down with Ms. Burnett for a cup of tea and a chat.

The recollections cover her childhood, her early acting years in NYC, her variety show, later life projects, her family, and other actors. I grew up watching the Carol Burnett Show. My mom and I would watch together on Saturday nights. That was hands down the best night of television on CBS. I have always loved and admired Ms. Burnett both for her many talents and her humility.

The main criticism of this book seems to be that it lacks salacious gossip. I'm sure Ms. Burnett has had experiences with people behaving badly. Instead, she prefers to focus on the joy and goodness of others. And in October 2016, I think that is a good thing! While we can't fully know the people we see on TV, I have always had the impression that Ms. Burnett is a genuinely good person. This book is written by a woman who worked hard to succeed and does not take her success for granted. She has a true fan's awe regarding other actors and that is fun to hear. I think this book is as warm and funny as the author.

It's odd. I'm 46, am NOT an American nor have I ever loved in the US. And yet...I LOVE Carol and I don't know exactly how, amd familiar with her show and some of the most famous sketches. Chapter 1 is "Jimmy Stewart". And that's when I wish I could say to Carol "you had me at Jimmy"...I couldn't believe she started the book with her favorite and most admired star, which happens to be mine also. The thing is, she got to LIVE him, to enjoy him. All I get is to say that he is my "Impossible Love Interest" for obvious reasons. And then..she talks about Cary Grant!!!! My excitement has a reason: my previous life was obviously when these two were great. My favorite actors, films, music...they all date back to the early 1920's-1960's. Considering I was born in 1969...Well, you get the point. Above all, what amazes me about this book is Carol's GRATEFULNESS. She does not ONCE take proper credit for any of her creations.It's one after another: she is obviously very much aware of her good fortune, but the fact that she is grateful places her as one of the GREATS, way beyond her majestic talent. She constantly goes on about all those who surrounded her and still do, I think that is rare and beautiful in today's world. OH!!! And not a single negative word about anyone. She's as understanding as can be. Again..rare in this world of ours. So whether you are a fan of hers or not, the book is a magnificent example of several qualities I wish were more present in our everyday life. And yes, you laugh out loud all the time, too. So thank YOU, Carol Burnett.
