    Listened to this with Mom and Dad on the way to Dad s surgery he s doing really good now I am the only bookworm of the three of us but we all love Carol so they didn t mind when I put this on instead of music.Comfort read for mom and me. Dad didn t say much but I caught him smiling a few times.Good Medicine this one is upping my rating Minor edits to original review Original read March 6th 15th 2015Re read April 22nd 30th 2016 need comfort reads Third Re read January 20174th re read June 2018Can I adopt Carol into my family Would still highly recommend, got myself the physical version of this as well.This book still lifts my spirits started it again when I was having a black mood and fell right back into listening to Carol relate her stories Some are still my favorites and some still have me tearing up the ones about Carrie as well, especially after reading Carol s other book One person I would have loved to know.Carol is right about one thing if she had been trying to make it today as a young woman, those same incredible opportunities would not have happened today, like it did back then sad really The modern world is so impatient in some things any.Hope Mom and I get to meet Carol one day Original review A lovely collection of reminisces from Carol s life She s had, as Carol as said herself, quite the run All the things she has accomplished are amazing and impressive.Some of her stories were so funny, I found myself thinking about them while at work and home I purpo...

    This is a wonderful collection of stories from Carol Expect no muck racking or trash talking about other celebrities Carol is too classy for that You can expect to learn about her variety show, all of her guests and co stars, and a little about her family and her li...

    At the end of each episode of her eponymous show, Carol Burnett would sing I m So Glad We Had This Time Together, a short tune written by her then husband and executive producer Joe Hamilton, and then tug her ear as a reminder to her gran that she was thinking of her The lyrics are, in part, as follows I m so glad we had this time together, Just to have a laugh, or sing a song Seems we just got started and before you know it Comes the time we have to say, So long There s a time you put aside for dreamin , And a time for things you have to do The time I love the best is in the eveningI can spend a moment here with you When the time comes that I m feelin lonely, And I m feelin ohooooo so blue, I just sit back and think of you, only, And the happiness still comes through.Though The Carol Burnett Show was before my time, my mother was is a huge fan of Ms Burnett so I ve been familiar with her since childhood Of course, it certainly doesn t hurt that she played Miss Hannigan in one of my childhood movie addictions, Annie I knew of Burnett s humor but I was in the dark about most of her work and her personal life, so when I saw my sister rate Th...

    3.5 stars Carol Burnett is probably one of the best known and most popular television personalities Reruns of her old variety show can still be seen on cable TV.Carol Burnett had amiable, but alcoholic, parents and was raised in the Hollywood area by her grandmother Early in life Carol realized she wanted to be an entertainer and, with talent and drive, became a very successful comedian, singer, and actor Along the way Carol acted in stage plays, TV shows, and movies She was a regular on the Garry Moore TV variety show for years and then had her own TV variety show for 11 seasons Carol was also married three times, had three daughters, and met entertainers and show business personnel of every kind This book contains a variety of anecdotes about all aspects of Carol s life Some are funny, some are touching, and some are sad One of my favorites is a story about Carol and four other young, struggling, would be actresses pooling five dollars each to buy an orange community dress for auditions bright colors being necessary to catch the director s eye When Carol lost a part to another gal in an orange dress she switched to yellow.Carol talks about how thrilled she was to meet Jimmy Stewart and Cary Grant and about an hour long telephone conversation she had with Marlon Brando whil...

    How many of you reading this recall The Garry Moore Show I grew up watching it and still recall it for it s humor as a kid the musical numbers were mostly of lesser interest Mr Moore gave a lot of people a start, people whose names you d recognize but none was funnier than a woman who became a regular on the show This program was my own introduction to Carol Burnett.Here we have a memoir that will leave you laughing and wishing for If like me you recall Garry Moore as well as the Carol Burnett show and maybe even saw Carol in other rolls for instance Once Upon a Mattress this book will probably also leave you with a bit of melancholy for timesand humorgone by.I once heard Ms Burnett note that the writers she worked with in a recent format had trouble writing for her and Tim Conway and Vicky Lawrenceetc Beside that it seems the variety show is a thing of the past No TV network is going t...

    Fluffy Audio Candy Lovely little inside look at historic Hollywood, almost like listening to your grandmother tell tales from her youth if your grandmother was a Hollywood icon.I d never actually watched or seen Carol Burnett in movies or TV until I looked up some old clips after finishing the book Not something I d normally gravitate to, this was a bookclub pick and ended up being better than expected.Warm hearted and pleasant this book is an enjoyable listen as Carol reads it herself I know 110% I would not have enjoyed this as much reading it, as I wouldn t have gotten to hear her trademark Tarzan yell, or felt the emotion in her voice as she discussed the death of her daughter.Overall an enjoyable book, but not much point other than to recount random incidents in Carol s life This felt like vignettes that weren t included in her I m assuming from the synopsis autobiographical 1986 book One More Time A Memoir.I appreciat...

    I was watching Annie with my little one the other day and within minutes, I was shaking my head How could any actress even attempt to play Miss Hannigan after Carol Burnett s performance It wasn t just that it was funny In fact, it may not be a lot of people s cup of tea because it is so broad, as is her style It was that Carol Burnett decided that her character was going to play this silly, comedy musical, as if it was a melodrama She was Joan Crawford at her long suffering, martyr best It takes a lot not to be upstaged by a cute, curly haired urchin, an adorable furball, and a bunch of overproduced, Look Ma I m actin ovah heeeyah sing and dance numbers, but Burnett shone I, for one, only had eyes for her.Having said that, people looking for super candid memoirs in This Time Together might be a bit disappointed This is a collection of bits , some of them funnier than others Carol tackles computers Carol is confronted by a grumpy restaurant hostess than a sincere, shared insight into her unconventional upbringing, marriages, or behind the scenes experiences from the set of her TV shows and movies To be fair, she may have already explored that territory with her first memoirs, which I have not read Still, overall, this book is at times humorous, surprising, and, when she talks about her daughter, very emotional.Perhaps the most surpris...

    Probably the best thing I can say about This Time Together is this I stopped reading for two days, right before the end, because I didn t want it to be over Like many people, I grew up watching The Carol Burnett Show, and I still count many moments of that show as some of the funniest I ve ever seen on television How many TV programs make you laugh til you re breathless Hers managed to do that all the time This memoir was pretty much as perfect as any fan could hope It was as if Carol were sitting next to you at dinner, telling you all of these wonderful stories There are stories to make you laugh Tim Conway hiding from Cary Grant Carol getting fired from her first job because she didn t want someone s experience of seeing Strangers on a Train to be ruined Carol becoming an accidental penpal of Joan Crawford There are stories to make you cry the little girl stricken with cancer, who forms an unexpected and important bond with Carol Carol s daughter Jody meeting Ray Charles, the love of her life the death of Carol s daughter Carrie.And there are stories to inspire how Ca...

    Why I bought it I actually didn t buy this one A friend recommended it highly and lent it to me on CD.Synopsis Carol Burnett tells humorous vignettes and memorable moments from her life starting at her childhood and continuing through her rise to fame and beyond.What I thought There s a reason I m breaking my regular schedule for this I LOVED it I highly recommend listening to this one Carol Burnett narrates She tarzan yells, sings, chuckles, and you chuckle along It s completely enchanting It took me back to watching her show as a little kid If you are a fan of Carol Burnett, you will love this If you ve never heard of her, you will still get a kick out of her stories Her first experience with a mugger had me dying laughing There are serious moments, too, and I cried a few times then again, it s easy to make me cry.My Rating out of 5, for the CD at least I think it would be the same for the book.My daughter s r...
