This contest is over! Our winners are shortc8ke on Twitter and jmc524! Congratulations!
We are kicking off our Month of Mom contests with two pairs of tickets to see award-winning actress, author and comedian Carol Burnett!
She'll bring her show "Laughter and Reflection with Carol Burnett: A Conversation with Carol Where the Audience Asks the Questions" to the Durham Performing Arts Center on May 12, which happens to be Mother's Day.
The idea for the show stems from the question-and-answer sessions with her studio audience on each episode of The Carol Burnett Show, a classic that I watched as a child. This is the kind of show I'd love to take my own mom too!
Says a synopsis of the show: "Burnett, award-winning actress and best-selling author, is widely recognized by the public and her peers for her work on stage and screen, most notably The Carol Burnett Show. Named in 2007 by TIME magazine as one of “100 Best Television Shows of All Time,” The Carol Burnett Show ran for 11 years, averaged 30 million viewers per week, and received 25 Emmy Awards, making it one of the most honored shows in television history. But it is Carol’s artistic brilliance, her respect and appreciation of her fans, and her graciousness, integrity, warmth, and humor on and off screen that have made her one of the most beloved performers in entertainment and one of the most admired women in America."
I have two pairs of tickets to give away! What do you need to do to win? Do one or both of the following:
