Carol Burnett profiled in PBS Documentary

Although this doesn't pertain to Lucille Ball and I'm breaking my own rule that this is nothing but "Everything Lucy", I wanted to post about the next best red-headed comedian, Carol Burnett. She worked with Lucy from her beginnings and the two became close friends.

Carol Burnett was featured in a PBS Documentary, American Masters, subtitled "A Woman of Character". One of the interview subjects points out that Burnett could never sing "as herself" during the 11-year run of her CBS variety show: She could only sing in character.

Read more from the San Francisco Chronicle or visit PBS American Masters to read about the documentary, Carol Burnett: A Woman of Character.

You can also read more about the documentary and Carol Burnett from The Denver Post.
