Comedy and TV legend Carol Burnett got her start after enrolling at UCLA to study Theater and English, planning to be a writer. She took an acting class and performed a scene, which changed everything: “They laughed, and I loved it.” And, as they say, the rest is history.

Who she would cast in a project today? Her dream team would include Amy Poehler, Tina Fey, Kristin Wiig, Kevin Spacey and Meryl Streep. (Yes, please!)

She also chatted about her new book, In Such Good Company: Eleven Years of Laughter, Mayhem and Fun in the Sandbox, which chronicles the 11-year-run of the 70s hit The Carol Burnett Show.
