My husband and I bumped into Carol Burnett near Lincoln Center in New York when my oldest daughter was just a baby. She actually stopped to make conversation with us – commenting on how adorable our daughter was. She was especially cute if I do say so myself.
As someone who grew up in England, I actually had NO idea who Carol Burnett was although I could sense that she was “someone” just by her sense of self and presence. My husband brought me up to speed as we walked away.
Since then I’ve become a huge fan of her work. She truly was a trailblazer for women in what is still a field dominated by men. This clip is one of my favourite clips of her work.
