Top 10 Reasons Carol Burnett is Awesome

Last week, Carol Burnett (who turns 80 this Friday) appeared on Larry King Now to promote her new book, Carrie and Me: A Mother-Daughter Love Story. During the interview, Larry asked her how The Carol Burnett Show came to be. Check it out:

If she's not a trailblazer, I don't know who is. Here are the Top 10 Reasons Carol Burnett is Awesome:

10) No Frills Airline

9) Mrs. Wiggins
8) Scarlett O'Hara

7) Eunice Higgins
6) The Tarzan Yell

5) She never planted people in the audience to ask questions or heard the questions before the show.

4) Funny faces

3) "I have to love her enough to let her hate me." She's not just a funny lady, she's also a mother. It's wonderful to hear her talk about helping her daughter get sober.

2) She never forgot where she came from.

1) She was the first woman to break into the man's world of variety shows! They tried to get her to do a sitcom instead, but she stood her ground and gave us 11 seasons of laughs.


Why do you think Carol Burnett is awesome? Add to the list in the comments!
