Trailblazing comedienne Carol Burnett received the nation’s top humor prize at the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts on Sunday.
When Carol Burnett launched her namesake variety show in the 1960s, one TV executive told her the genre was “a man’s game.” She proved him wrong with an 11-year run that averaged 30 million viewers each week.
Julie Andrews, Tony Bennett, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler will honor Carol Burnett as she receives the nation’s top humor prize in Washington.
