"I always loved when we opened 'The CAROL BURNETT Show' by talking with the audience, so this is a wonderful way for us to revisit this tradition so many years later," BURNETT said. "I look forward to sitting down with TIM, VICKI and AMY on SIRIUSXM to hear from our fans, answer their questions and have a little fun."

"She has made me laugh probably harder than anyone I've ever seen in my life. Because of her openness and willingness to share herself and be giving not only with her making people laugh, but with her laughter as well, she's definitely paved the way for me and most other female comedians that I know."
