Carol Burnett Receives Mark Twain Prize

Carol Burnett was awarded the Mark Twain Prize for American Humor, the country's top humor honor, over the weekend.

"This is very encouraging," Burnett said in her acceptance speech, The Associated Press reports.

Queens of Comedy: Amy Poehler and Carol Burnett Talk Sketches and Becoming BFFs

No doubt about it, Parks and Recreation star Amy Poehler is one of the funniest peeps on the planet. So who inspired her? As part of our ongoing series of interviews called "Icons & Innovators," we gave the former Saturday Night Live sensation a chance to chat with the comedy star she admires most: the legendary Carol Burnett. The winner of six Emmys — three of them for her beloved 1967-78 laughfest The Carol Burnett Show — Burnett came close to working with Poehler when they both did voice work in the hit animated film Horton Hears a Who! But these two comedy greats have never performed face-to-face. What's Hollywood waiting for?

Premise: Great skits (especially the movie parodies), music and celebrity guests add up to a classic series with the gifted, versatile Burnett and her talented regulars. The variety show debuted in 1967 on CBS, and was a Saturday-night staple for much of its 11-season run on the network before it was `time to say goodbye' with a brief stint on ABC in 1978. Lesser, retooled incarnations aired on NBC (1990-91) and again on CBS in 1991.
