Good Ole Laughter.


Have you ever met someone who for some reason every time you get together you find your selves laughing over the most common of things? For some reason the two of you can take the normally mundane conversation and turn it into a laugh fest.  I know a couple of people like that in my life.  I love it when I can have the opportunity to get together with them.  I can enjoy laughing for a while.  It’s an automatic event.  Don’t know how or why, it just happens.  I figure, this is sheer magic.  I truly love every moment that I can share with them.  Laughter is the best medicine after all.  Well, the Carol Burnett Show had just that combination of personalities, thus I enjoyed watching every show when I was little.  Okay, when I was really little.

There couldn’t be much funnier than the Carol Burnett, Tim Conway,  Vicki Lawrence and Harvey Korman as well as Lyle Wagoner.  What a Great comedy team they made.  Part of the hilarity of the show was how they would be caught off guard by each other and start to bust up.  Usually it would be Tim Conway that would be the driving catalyst by straying from the set script, sending  his colleagues into  strained laughter.   The fun and unique team style is what really created such humorous scenes.  It was as if you were watching a group of teenagers having fun goofing around in the back yard.  The energy between them all was so  smooth that they could just play off of one funny line after the next. 

This series of parody improvisation ran from 1967 thru 1978.  This seemingly adolescent prank and improvisation type humor carried out so well with adults and adult issues made it a very successful show. 

In reading more at: Answers.com, I learned that when Carol Burnett pulled her ear each episode, she was in fact saying a special hello to her Grandmother.  How special her Grandmother had to have felt.  What an endearing act.  I enjoyed learning that fact about Carol Burnett.  How would you gesture a silent hello to one of your relatives if you had the opportunity to be on the stage?  I think that was a pretty good way.

    HAHAHA! The Carol Burnett show is my all time favorite comedy show!! I bought some of her DVDs when they advertized them on TV and they truly bring back memories. She had the best cast ever, and each one played off of the other brilliantly with good clean humor. They don’t make ’em like they used to. The comics today feel they have to use foul language in every sentence to get a laugh. What a shame!

      So very true! I agree. Humor doesn’t need to be foul to be extremely funny. Have a Great Week-end. Give Bailey a hug for us. Hope I spelled right.
