She might be 84 years old, but Carol Burnett is showing no signs of slowing down at all.
The legendary comedian will be coming to the National Arts Centre on Nov. 2 as part of a tour of cities this fall. She’ll also be stopping in Toronto (Oct. 30) and Montreal (Nov. 4).
The appearance announcement follows closely on the heels of the announcement of a new Netflix series featuring Burnett. The 12 episode series is called A Little Help with Carol Burnett and it features Burnett engaged in unscripted comedy with a panel of eight-year-olds as they demonstrate how different generations solve life’s biggest dilemmas. The series is expected to premiere in 2018.
Her show in Ottawa is called An Evening of Laughter and Reflection Where the Audience Asks the Questions. And she means it. The booking is a pay-off for an on-going push to convince bigger name artists that the NAC and Ottawa is a place they shouldn’t ignore.
