Happy Birthday Carol Burnett!
Carol Burnett will celebrate her 77th Birthday on Monday, April 26, 2010. I don't know about you, but I grew up watching The Carol Burnett Show - featuring Harvey Korman, Tim Conway, Lyle Waggoner and Vicki Laurence. The popular variety show made the stars household names with such sketches as "As the Stomach Turns", "Went with the Wind" (a parody of Gone with the Wind featuring a scene with Burnett as Scarlett O'Hara in the dress made from a window curtain, complete with the curtain rod) - Created at the Bob Barker Studios, the Carol Burnett Show ran on CBS from September 11, 1967 to March 29, 1978 for 78 episodes.
If you get a chance, go watch screenings of the show. Take an afternoon to saunter over to The Paley Center For Media. Carol Burnett screenings take place April 21 – 30 (also at 3:00 pm). Admission to these screenings is free.
The Paley Center for Media - located at 465 N. Beverly Drive, Beverly Hills, CA 90210

See you there!
