Carol Burnett joined Stephen Colbert on The Late Show on Wednesday night, to promote her new special DVD collection The Carol Burnett Show: The Lost Episodes. However, the comedic legend also received a few surprises of her own.

Carol Burnett on ‘The Late Show With Stephen Colbert’

Colbert hit the stage at the start of his show to take a few questions from his audience. But, the audience had quite the shock when Burnett appeared to raise her hand to ask a question.

“I would like to know why you’re doing this bit?,” Burnett asked, as the audience gave her a standing ovation.

“I wanted to know where you get off doing this bit because — it’s my bit!,” Burnett told Colbert. “For 11 years I would come out and take questions with the audience, so really it’s mine, I own this.”

The host decided to hand the stage over to Burnett and she proceeded to answer a few of the audience questions.

“Can you do your Tarzan yell?,” one fan asked.

Burnett was happy to do her famous Tarzan screech, while a shirtless Tarzan lookalike hilariously applauded from the middle of the aisle.

The comedian later received her own surprise when Kevin Spacey took the stage to read her a special poem, using the voice of her late idol Jimmy Stewart.

“Since we’re celebrating the release of the Lost Episodes, well I found the lost poem,” Spacey said in his Jimmy Stewart accent, while donned in thick glasses.

Spacey brought Burnett to tears as he read the poem titled “Carol,” which was a tribute to her work.

“The drinks are on me all night at the bar because Carol Burnett is still comedy’s greatest star,” the poem concluded.
