[ # ] Carol Burnett’s inspirational story how she got her first break!
April 24th, 2013 under Jay Leno

Carol Burnett was on The Tonight Show and Jay Leno asked her how she got her start. The red head then explained that back when she was a sophomore at UCLA, she was in a musical comedy workshop and her professor asked her to perform at a party. A man at the party came up to her and asked her what she wants to do with her life, and she said to be doing musical comedy in NY. When he asked why she wasn’t there, she said she didn’t have any money. So the man offered to loan her the money and she didn’t believe him. Well he was serious and he gave her $1,000 to begin her career, but he had three stipulations. He said she had to pay him back in 5 years, help others like he helped her and never reveal who he is. Well she paid him back, helped others and has yet to reveal who he is!
Then she went on to say that years after she paid him back, she had lunch with him. As she shared with the NBC host about their encounter, she started to tear up and so did I. What an amazing story to happen to such a deserving woman.
So watch her tell that inspirational story and the next time you can help someone start their career make sure to do it. You never know, you could be helping the next Carol Burnett out to be a star in their line of business.
And below is a little video that the NBC host shared of Miss Burnett when she first started out saying hello to her all of her family members, friends and everyone she ever met! I just want to say thank you to mysterious benefactor for helping to give us the legendary Carol Burnett!
