Among the most beloved female American entertainers, Carol Burnett is a gifted comic, actress, writer, dancer, and singer. She began her career in New York. Rooted in vaudeville, she became a guest on the "Garry Moore Show," "The Tonight Show with Jack Par," and "Ed Sullivan." The '59 musical, "Once Upon A Mattress," was her first major breakthrough.
Some of the most endearing American memories ("Gone With the Wind" sketch and "As the Stomach Turns") come from the eleven year run of "The Carol Burnett Show." The song "I'm So Glad We Had This Time Together" is part of the American canon.
