Happy Birthday Lucille Ball!
On August 6th of 1911 the hilariously talented Lucille Ball entered the world. Lucille was born in Jamestown, New York to a small struggling family. Her father, Henry, worked as an electrician having to move around the country to find work. Only three years after Lucille’s birth her father fell sick with typhoid fever and passed shortly after in 1915.
Happy Birthday Carol Burnett!
On April 26, 1933 one of the funniest women in history was born, Carol Burnett.
Burnett was born in San Antonia, Texas but moved only a few years later to Hollywood, California with her grandmother. After high school Burnett attended the University of California, Los Angeles, studying English and theater arts. Burnett was ready to break into acting; she left school a year early to move to New York.
