Carol Burnett – In Her Own Words

“I think the hardest thing to do in the world, show-business-wise, is write comedy. We had a great staff of writers, and if we had a sketch we were rehearsing and it wasn’t working, we’d call the writers down and show them what we had come up with. And there were no egos. In 11 years, we never had a writer get angry because we made it a little bit more of our own and maybe a little improved. They would jump in and say, “Oh okay, how about this then, while you’re doing that?” We were all in the sandbox together.”
