Carol Burnett: Still Making Us Laugh

April 8, 2013 Erik Ernst Leave a Comment

Watch American Masters: Carol Burnett at 7 p.m. Tuesday, April 9 on Wisconsin Public Television, followed by Pioneers of Television: Carol Burnett & The Funny Ladies at 8:30.

Carol Burnett has long been lauded as one of TV’s funniest ladies. Forget that narrow distinction. She is one of the medium’s funniest people. (Not to mention her talents in film and theater!)

The humor of her groundbreaking television variety show still resonates (and still makes audiences roar with laughter.) So, instead of writing about how great she is, I want to send this post straight to the video tape. Whether you’ve never watched The Carol Burnett Show, or you’ve seen these segments a hundred times, I guarantee they will still add a few chuckles to your afternoon.
