About this Episode

Beth is still pinching herself after this interview with her hero: Carol Burnett has been the object of Beth's idolization since childhood and is the ultimate reason she is now a physical comedian. Not only has her infectious comedic style influenced Beth in every which way, but the two have both been with CBS for a decade, and they bond over their shared experiences of working in front of a studio audience.

Burnett tells her story from the first time she realized she was funny (5:54) through the divine intervention (or something like it) that's guided her through her life and career (14:15), muses on her late daughter's mantra that has inspired her outlook on life (26:58), recalls the creative process and origins of the Carol Burnett Show, and being a woman in a "man's game" (28:58), and recounts her lifelong friendship with Julie Andrews (42:40).
