The Carol Burnett Show

By Persona Non Grata

In a decade where variety shows on television had dwindled almost to nothing from their widespread popularity in the 50s and most new variety shows lasted only a year or two, the Carol Burnett show spanned more than a decade. The success can be attributed both to the chemistry of the regular cast members, Harvey Korman, Lyle Waggoner, Vicki Lawrence, and Tim Conway and to Carol's multi-faceted talents as a actor, singer, comedian, mime and dancer.

The format included an opening where Carol would field questions from the studio audience, comedy skits based on television shows or movies with the show regulars special guest stars, and a closing with Carol appearing as a washer-woman with a mop singing It's Time to Say Goodbye

There were several skits that were recurring. In "Ed & Eunice" (which later ran as a series Mama's Family on NBC) Carol and Harvey Korman played a married couple continually at odds with Eunice's over- critical mother played by Carol Burnett look-alike Vicky Lawrence. In "Mr. Tudball and Mrs.Wiggens" Carol played a bungling, incompetent blonde secretary to her increasingly disconcerted but  patiently enduring boss played by Tim Conway.  "As the Stomach Turns" was a spoof on day-time soap operas.
