Carol Burnett - May 24th

Carol Burnett (kinship) --- actress, comedienne, singer, and writer. She is best known for her long-running TV variety show, The Carol Burnett Show. Carol's parents were alcoholics, and her earliest memories are of their screaming, drunken fights. Her father abandoned the family when she was eight, and her mother soon faded into the bottle, leaving Burnett to be raised by her grandmother in an impoverished area of Hollywood where they stayed in a boarding house. They became very close, and Burnett's famous "ear-tug" gesture, offered at the end of all her live performances and on her famous TV series, began as a silent signal to her grandmother, meaning "Everything is OK."
