I really enjoyed reading Carol Burnett's memoir. I found myself laughing out loud at her moments and her retelling of the skits she did. This story is written with Carol's sense of humor. Although there is some sadness mixed in, especially when she mentions losing her daughter to cancer. She did a great job of writing this story and I loved how it was organized and fast moving.
