Carol Burnett is known as one of the most brilliant comediennes of all times. Her Carol Burnett Show aired for 11 years garnering 25 prime-time Emmy awards and inclusion on Time magazine’s list of “100 Best TV Shows of All Times.” With a new resurgence in popularity, you’ll love this opportunity to get the actual scripts to some of her best comedy sketches, as performed by the unsurpassed team of Carol, Harvey Korman, Tim Conway, and Vickie Lawrence.
Not a word in these scripts has been changed, and the collection includes a short word of advice from Carol about performing sketch comedy. Since the skits are royalty-free, you can use them to practice comedy techniques or in your own live stage show.
Associate producer Robert Wright and the entire staff of The Carol Burnett Show are donating their share of profits from the sale of this comedy material to the Navajo Indian Children’s Scholarship Trust.
Comedy Sketch Collection Volume 9 includes five medium-length comedy sketches:
- The Howl and the Pussycat — Carol’s fiancé accidentally gets allergy shots and starts acting like a cat as he seeks approval from Carol’s rich father.
- Alice Portnoy at the Hospital — Alice meets an insurance scam artist in the hospital and uses leverage to collect contributions from him.
- Divorce, American-Style — A neglected wife and workaholic husband argue about their material possessions, and end up destroying most of them.
- As the Stomach Turns (a soap opera) — More insane situations at Canoga Falls, where everyone has problems aplenty.
- The Old Folks #4 — Another suitor tries to capture old Molly’s fancy, much to Bert’s dismay.
No Royalty. Comes as an e-document!
