Wonderful show, delightful woman!
9 January 2018 | by Electron-LibreSee all my reviews

Being born in France in the early 70's, I wasn't aware of this show called "The Carol Burnett Show". I didn't even know this woman. I saw her for the first time last year in a ceremony where she received an achievement prize. But it is when I saw the 50th Anniversary Special hosted by Stephen Colbert last autumn that I started to really get interested because they showed sketches of the show. You Americans must stop hiding those talents from us! So I gathered so many shows I could find and I have to say that they are a delight to watch! There are some pretty awesome burlesque sketches in it and a lot of humanity too. And if you love the 70's, oh boy, you travel right back to that blessed period of time. And I have to mention the wonderful costumes made by a certain Bob Mackie. This guy is simply a genius! Some costumes look like Gaultier or Lacroix 20 years before! I love Carol Burnett and I am very happy to now know this great performer!
