BTWF: Janet Jackson on The Carol Burnett Show
January 27th, 2022 under Before They Were Famous, Carol Burnett, The Jacksons. [ Comments: none ]

Before Janet Jackson was a pro at doing talk shows, she got her start on The Carol Burnett Show. Even when the singer was just 7 years old in that 1974 guest appearance, she knew how to steal the show.


Retro: Watch Carol Burnett change up a scene without telling Harvey Korman
April 29th, 2019 under Carol Burnett. [ Comments: none ]

The Carol Burnett Show was not only funny because of the acting and writing, but it also made us laugh when the actors would break character and started laughing with us. Harvey Korman was an easy target and Tim Conway got him a few times. However, singling him out started during the first season.

Back in 1968. Burnett had a scene with Korman and before they started filming she told the audience a little secret. She let them know that at the end of the scene, she is supposed to hit her co-star in the head with the kitchen door. However, she added, she is not going to do it to see his reaction. Since he was backstage during her announcement, he did not hear her evil plan.

The audience sat and waited until it was time for that moment to happen. He calls out her name and nothing happens. He does it again and again nothing happens. Finally, she pulls, the door open and started laughing hysterically. She was not the only one. Korman was rolling on the floor laughing his a$$ off before it was actually a thing.

It is moments like that that made the variety show such a joy to watch. No matter how many times you a see sketch from it, it still makes you laugh out loud. As they say, they do not make it like this show anymore.

Whether you have never seen the Variety show or you just want to watch it again. It airs 11p, weeknights on Me TV because their humor never gets old.


Carol Burnett and her Mama
December 3rd, 2018 under Carol Burnett, Vicki Lawrence. [ Comments: none ]

It has been over 50 years since Vicki Lawrence wrote Carol Burnett and said she could play her sister. The letter worked because she got the job doing just that and eventually played her mother on Mama’s Family.

Even though it has been a half-century since they first met, the two of them are still friends and hang out. Having a friendship that most of us which we could have.

They might not have born as sisters, but they have become just that over all of these years.


It’s Mama Harper and Eunice!
April 30th, 2018 under Carol Burnett, Vicki Lawrence. [ Comments: 2 ]

Carol Burnett is 15 years and 11 months older than Vicki Lawrence, and that does not stop the daughter and mother from celebrating their birthdays together. Granted the younger one is the mother in this scenario which makes their relationship as funny as them.

When I think of the great comediennes, I think of these two hilarious women. Ever since the first time I saw The Carol Burnett Show, I knew that women could be hysterical. To this day, they are my idols. Therefore, seeing that they are still friends (after over 50 years) just made this gloomy day so much brighter.

Hopefully, they are someone else’s idols, and that person will have more influence than me. So much influence, they will give them a show. Who would not want to see them share the screen again? Especially since it has been 40 years, one month and a day since their variety show ended. Can you believe it has been that long? They look even better now than they did then.
