Carol Burnett, whose middle name is Creighton, was born April 26, 1933. Carol Burnett was born in San Antonio, Texas, the daughter of Ina Louise Creighton, a publicity writer for movie studios, and Joseph Thomas Burnett, a movie theater manager.
Carol Burnett is an American actress, comedian, singer, dancer and writer. Carol Burnett started her career in New York. After successful appearances on The Garry Moore Show, Carol Burnett moved to Los Angeles and began an eleven-year run as the star of The Carol Burnett Show which was aired on CBS television from 1967 to 1978.
The hour-long Carol Burnett Show, which debuted in 1967, garnered 23 Emmy Awards and won or was nominated for multiple Emmy Awards every season it was on the air. Its ensemble cast included Tim Conway, Harvey Korman, Lyle Waggoner, and the teenaged Vicki Lawrence who seemed to look like a young Carol Burnett.
The Carol Burnett Show ended in 1978, and is generally regarded as the last successful major network prime-time variety show. It continues to have success in syndicated reruns. Carol Burnett was open to her fans, never refusing to give an autograph and had limited patience for "The celebrities who've made it, then complain about loss of privacy."
Carol Burnett would also dress up like a cleaning lady and then take a broom and slowly sweep the circle of light on the floor smaller and smaller as of it were the dust and dirt on the floor.
If you are from the era of the Carol Burnet show and enjoyed watching that variety show then you may remember another variety show that aired from 1951 to 1971, The Red Skelton Show.
If you are a fan of the Golden age of television than you will enjoy the only tribute show in Pigeon Forge dedicated to keeping the memory of Red Skelton alive.
