Carol Burnett and Lucille Ball
The adorable picture above shows two of my favorites doing what they do/did best… making people smile. Such extraordinary women and very close friends in real life as well.
Carol Burnett’s birthday is today and I can think of no better way to honor her than a photo with a friend that meant so much to her.
She was born on April 26, 1933 in San Antonio, Texas and television and its fans are all the richer for it. It’s amazing to me just how timeless The Carol Burnett Show is, even today. The music, opening monologue, skits, and humor ring as wonderful today as they did then and so much of that is because of the wonderful redhead we’re celebrating today.
Happiest of birthdays, Carol Burnett, and thanks for all of the wonderful fun and laughter!
You can find the complete series (or buy seasons individually) of The Carol Burnett Show on dvd or watch on Prime Video. (Amazon link)
