Like many comic stars, Carol Burnett grew up in a rough home. Both her mother and father were alcoholics, and Burnett's
earliest memories are of the knockdown, drag-out fights her parents would engage in. Thankfully, Burnett found a way to deal
with the stress: laughter. She loved nothing more than losing herself in laughter and helping others do the same, and she
dedicated her life early on to living life to the fullest through laughter. She continues that noble work today with her latest
tour that brings her classic jokes as well as new ones to life onstage and to audiences new and old. Get your Carol Burnett
