Ok so pretty much every working comedian owes their career to The Carol Burnett Show making sketch comedy a thing. It ran for more than 10 years, and it convinced a generation of Americans that women are in fact funny as hell. We worship Carol at our shrine of badass hard-working comedy geniuses every day, but since it’s throwback Thursday we might as well post one of our favorite bizarro sketches from the show.
Also bonus clip because we can’t resist: you HAVE to watch Carol and Bernadette Peters as synchronized catty typists. It is a damn work of art.
