Carol Burnett: An Evening of Laughter and Reflection (Thursday, September 26 at 7:00 PM): During An Evening of Laughter and Reflection, TV comedy icon, award-winning actress and bestselling author, Carol Burnett is bringing back her revered Q&A show to Toronto where she will be taking audience questions and showing video clips from her shows in a format that harkens back to the legendary openings of The Carol Burnett Show. This one-night-only event will give a lucky audience an unfiltered opportunity to engage with Carol, to ask 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!”
