Carol Burnett is back and ready to take on the generation gap! Netflix releases hilarious clip of new series

Tim Conway cracks up cast members, Carol Burnett, Vicki Lawrence and Harvey Korman during a Mama’s Family skit from “The Carol Burnett Show.” Trying to subdue fits of laughter became a staple for the cast and crew of Burnett’s show and got the T.V. and live audiences rolling right along with them.

She’s back!

Netflix announced the release of a new show featuring comedy icon Carol Burnett.

The 84-year-old earned legendary status for “The Carol Burnett Show” that aired between 1967 and 1978. One of the show’s most popular skits spurred the spin-off “Mama’s Family.”

This time around, Burnett will playfully highlight the generation gap and interview four to eight year olds.

“Someone once asked me how old I am inside,” Burnett said in a statement. “I thought about it, and came up with, ‘I’m about eight.’ So it’s going to be a lot of fun playing with kids my age.”

Burnett will interview the children to get their hilarious take on everyday issues, Variety reported.

“We’re thrilled Carol is bringing her unique sensibilities to Netflix,” Bela Bajaria, vice president of content acquisition for Netflix, told Variety. “Carol is truly a legend in the entertainment industry with unprecedented success and fandom across TV, film and the stage, and we are both honored and excited to work with her.”

Burnett’s additional success in the movie and Broadway sectors has made her one the entertainment industry’s most notable figures.

But not if you happen to be in elementary school.  That reality, is hilariously showcased in a preview of the upcoming series where Burnett pretends to interview for a job from a young boy.

Touting her impressive resume, the boy interrupted saying he had won a trophy for soccer.

“You did!?” Burnett asked excitedly.

“Everyone did.” he flatly answered.


“A Little Help with Carol Burnett” will feature 30 minute spots and will run for 12 episodes next year.
