See Carol Burnett work her magic on 'The Late Show with Stephen Colbert,' get the tears flowing
The comedy legend hit 'Colbert' for a poem, a Tarzan yell, a Jimmy Stewart impression and the tug of an ear. Grab some tissues.
While just over a week old, The Late Show with Stephen Colbert has proven itself to be a refreshing addition to the late night lineup. With Colbert's wide appeal and shifting tones, the talk show keeps delivering memorable moments. Last night, the host welcomed one of his heroes — and a hero to all comedians, really — Carol Burnett. The episode began with Colbert initiating a question-and-answer session with his audience. The 82-year-old comedienne, planted in the crowd, stood up and accused him of ripping off her shtick. What ensued was a flashback to The Carol Burnett Show with Burnett fielding questions from fans and even delivering her trademark Tarzan yell. It's an absolute must-see.
Afterward, Kevin Spacey slipping into a Jimmy Stewart impression to read her a poem, which brought her to tears. Burnett was there to promote her new The Carol Burnett Show: The Lost Shows Ultimate Collection DVD set. Of course, you can still catch Carol Burnett and Friends on late night, every weeknight on MeTV at 11PM | 10C.
