Carol Burnett to Appear at Benaroya Hall Oct 21

Carol Burnett, award-winning actress and best-selling author, will be at Benaroya Hall on Sunday October 21, 2018 with her one woman show, Carol Burnett: An Evening of Laughter and Reflection Where the Audience Asks the Questions. Ms. Burnett was recently nominated for an Emmy for "The Carol Burnett Show 50th Anniversary Special" which aired on CBS in December of 2017. This is her first Emmy nomination in over a decade. The Primetime Emmy Award winners will be announced on September 17, 2018.

During "An Evening of Laughter and Reflection," Burnett will take questions from the audience, show video clips from her shows in a format that harkens back to the legendary openings of The Carol Burnett Show where her studio audience had an unfiltered opportunity to engage Carol with questions and receive spontaneous answers. "I love the spontaneity of these evenings," said Carol. "I never know what anyone is going to ask, or say, or do, so it keeps me on my toes!"

Carol Burnett is widely recognized by the public and her peers for her work on stage and screen, most notably The Carol Burnett Show. Named in 2007 by TIME magazine as one of "100 Best Television Shows of All Time," The Carol Burnett Show ran for 11 years, averaged 30 million viewers per week, and received 25 Emmy Awards, making it one of the most honored shows in television history. But it is Ms. Burnett's artistic brilliance, her respect and appreciation of her fans, and her graciousness, integrity, warmth, and humor on and off screen that have made her one of the most beloved performers in entertainment and one of the most admired women in America.

As a highly acclaimed actress, Ms. Burnett has been honored with Emmys, Golden Globes, People's Choice Awards, the Horatio Alger Award, an Ace Award, and the Peabody. A Kennedy Center Honoree, she has also been honored with the Kennedy Center Mark Twain Prize for Humor, the Presidential Medal of Freedom, was inducted into the Television Hall of Fame, and has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Tickets are $69 to $179 and available through the Benaroya Hall Box Office, at 206.215.4747 or online at www.benaroyahall.org.
