Carol Burnett reaches the big 080: Happy B-Day to you
~~ Carol Burnett
American actress, comedienne, singer, and writer; best known for her long-running TV variety show on CBS, The Carol Burnett Show.
From her signature Tarzan yell and left ear pinch what comes to mind whenever I think of Carol Burnett is her amazing accomplishments and presence in the industry. She has achieved so much success on stage, television -- a dozen years of CBS' "The Carol Burnett Show" -- and film in varying genres including dramatic and comedy roles. Happy birthday Carol Burnett!
Born, Carol Creighton on April 26th, 1933, in San Antonio, Texas, Burnett was the daughter of Ina Louise (née Creighton), a publicity writer for movie studios, and Joseph Thomas Burnett, a movie theater manager.
Burnett married Don Saroyan on December 15, 1955; they divorced in 1962. On May 4, 1963, Burnett married TV producer Joe Hamilton, a divorced father of eight, who had produced her 1962 Carnegie Hall concert and would produce The Carol Burnett Show, among other projects. The couple had three daughters: Carrie Hamilton December 5, 1963, died on January 20, 2002 Jody Hamilton January 18, 1967 (age 46) Erin Hamilton August 14, 1968 (age 44)
Their marriage ended in divorce in 1984, and Hamilton died of cancer in 1991. On November 24, 2001, Burnett married Brian Miller (principal drummer in and contractor of the Hollywood Bowl Orchestra), who is 23 years her junior.
In January 2002, Burnett's daughter Carrie died of lung and brain cancer at the age of 38. She had become addicted to drugs as a teenager. Burnett and Carrie wrote a play together called Hollywood Arms, which was adapted from Burnett's bestselling memoir, One More Time.
The Broadway production featured Linda Lavin as the Burnett character's beloved grandmother, Sara Niemietz and Donna Lynne Champlin shared the role of Helen (Carol Burnett), and Michele Pawk played the role of the mother, Louise. For her performance, Pawk received the 2003 Tony Award for Best Performance by a Featured Actress in a Play.
Burnett's daughter Erin became a singer. Since the 1960s, Burnett has been best friends with Julie Andrews. Burnett is the godmother of Julie's first child Emma Walton Hamilton.
