FAIRFAX, VA — In the Fall of 2013, StarVista Entertainment served up the gift of laughter with the first retail release of The Carol Burnett Show. Featuring episodes hand-picked by Carol herself and loaded with bonus programming, the 6-disc CAROL’S FAVORITES was an immediate hit with fans and critics alike. This was shortly followed by the uproarious collection THIS TIME TOGETHER. Now, this April, get ready for the latest installment in the best-selling TV DVD franchise: THE CAROL BURNETT SHOW: CAROL’S CRACK UPS. Featuring 17 uncut episodes and a spectacular selection of specially-produced extras – many never before available in a wide retail release – the 6-DVD collection will be available for classic TV aficionados and comedy lovers on April 15th for $59.95srp.
Carol, the 2013 winner of the Mark Twain Prize for American Humor, personally selected the 17 hilarious episodes in THE CAROL BURNETT SHOW: CAROL’S CRACK UPS, from her extensive archive. They all feature one of the show’s fan-favorite hallmarks: sketches so funny that they tested the strength of even the most seasoned cast members — Harvey Korman, Vicki Lawrence, Lyle Waggoner, Tim Conway and later Dick Van Dyke. Among other unforgettable moments, enjoy Harvey Korman cracking up with Tim Conway in numerous sketches, and, see Carol try to hold back the laughs as Vicki Lawrence took the stage as her timeless character, Mama.
Across 6 spectacularly-loaded DVDs, consumers will crack-up along with Carol and crew in UNCUT episodes as they originally aired on television. Showcasing some of the most acclaimed and beloved moments from the legendary series from television’s Golden Age, the set includes classic sketches such as “The Family,” “Carol and Sis,” “Alice Portnoy,” “The Charwoman” and “The Old Folks,” along with sidesplitting parodies and favorite segments including “TV Commercials,” “Terminal Hospital,” Rebecky and Raised to Be Rotten. And, adding to the crack ups are guest stars galore, including such luminaries as Carl Reiner, Charo, Roddy McDowall, Ruth Buzzi, Andy Griffith and many others.
Fans of classic TV comedy will also enjoy hours of StarVista’s acclaimed and extensive special programming featuring interviews, cast commentary and bonus sketches such as Valerie Harper and Tim Conway’s installment of “As the Stomach Turns”; George Carlin’s dentist sketch; the therapy
session with James Garner and Ken Berry; plus the interrogator routine with Tim, Harvey and Lyle; as well as two brand new featurettes never-before-available: “Tim Conway: Chief Cracker Upper” and “Tim on the Street.”
Go ahead – try not to crack up. The Carol Burnett Show is still zany after all these years!
