Carol Burnett - Comedy Hero

Watching an American Masters episode on Carol Burnett tonight, made me misty eyed for her old brand of humor. Back in the day of Carol, Tim and Harvey, comedy wasn't cynical or mean spirited it was about the humor of just being human. You could see the joy and the fun of these three on stage. Between Tim making Harvey laugh, Carol trying to keep a straight face and the characters that stuck with you for days ... it was just pure.

I will say, thank god SNL got good again.
