Coming to movie theaters nationwide for one night only on April 22, the event, “THE CAROL BURNETT SHOW: LAUGH ALL NIGHT,” will feature the premiere screening of a brand new behind-the-scenes retrospective, in addition to three classic episodes personally selected by Carol Burnett for this special one-night event.

Kicking off with an introduction by Carol Burnett herself, the three fan-favorite episodes will feature classic sketches, such as “The Dentist,” “The Family: The Attic,” featuring Betty White, and “Went with the Wind,” which are sure to have fans laughing in their seats.
