Actors can be challenged to bring to the stage, comedy characters from “The Carol Burnett Show,” playing Carol Burnett, Tim Conway, Lyle Waggoner, Harvey Korman and Vicki Lawrence, plus additional guest actors.

The comedy writers for this show, which ran from 1967 to 1978, were some of the best — every scene has been well crafted. Carol Burnett said: “I think we have the finest comedy writers in television and am pleased that their efforts can now be enjoyed again and again, instead of just one night on national television. It is particularly gratifying to announce that all six writers are donating their royalties to the Navajo Children’s Foundation in Arizona.”
