Carol Burnett

The Carol Burnett Show is one of Televisions greatest show’s in history. Winner of 25 Emmy Awards, 8 Golden Globe Awards and 3 People’s Choice Awards. The show brought Carol Burnett’s working class persona into a unique relationship with her audience. There was a glamorous, celebrity-brushed side to her work: Burnett could wear exclusive Bob Mackie gowns, banter with popular celebrities, and illustrate her brilliant talent for physical and intellectual comedy in cleverly written and produced skits. Her musical abilities ranged from Shubert’s Alley to more refined venues, and her voice could amuse and inspire. She vamped with Hollywood royalty–Lucille Ball, Liza Minelli, Sammy Davis, Jr., even then-California governor Ronald Reagan joked and performed. On the other hand, Burnett’s Charwoman character, her dysfunctional and beleaguered “Family” member, Eunice, her zestful Tarzan call, and her weekly question-and-answer sessions with the studio audience gave her an accessibility and down-to-earth warmth that firmly reinstated her back within the world of her viewers. The dichotomy between the two Carols–one homespun, the other neon-minted–gave The Carol Burnett Show a flavor and personality that showcased the idiosyncrasies of its eponymous star. Only later did Burnett reveal the source of that working-class quality–the talented comedienne had lifted herself from appalling poverty, a dysfunctional family, and emotional abuse to become a beloved star. One of Burnett’s insightful actions, as she constructed her characters and her persona, was to draw on the contradictions that informed her artistic evolution.
