Carol Burnett’s Hard-Knock Life
Later generations might know Carol Burnett for her turn as Miss Hannigan in Annie, but they may not know that she had a hard-knock life herself growing up. Her alcoholic parents couldn’t always take care of her, so her grandmother stepped in and helped raise her. In fact, Carol Burnett’s grandmother was the person who would take her to see the movies that would fuel her early love of the performing arts. As a result, Carol Burnett began the tradition of tugging on her left ear during all on-camera appearances as a tribute to her grandmother. In addition to her grandmother, other early influences on Carol Burnett include Garry Moore and Buddy Hackett. Over the years, Carol Burnett performed comedy routines with numerous star comedians such as Tim Conway, Harvey Korman and Lyle Waggoner.
