As of the early afternoon of May 10, 31, 038 fans have joined the Facebook group “Carol Burnett to Host SNL (PLEASE?)!,” which advocates that the Tony nominee and Emmy winner should host NBC’s venerable sketch comedy hour-and-a-half. (The page’s host says, “Icing on the cake would be a cameo appearance by TIM CONWAY!”)
Burnett is known to Broadway fans for her appearances in Once Upon a Mattress, Moon Over Buffalo, Putting It Together and Fade-Out, Fade-In, and for Hollywood Arms, the semi-autobiographical play she co-wrote with daughter Carrie Hamilton. Her most famous appearances on television include her work on “The Garry Moore Show” and on “The Carol Burnett Show,” which ran from 1967 to 1978. Film credits include "Pete’n’Tillie," "The Front Page," "A Wedding," "The Four Seasons" and "Annie."
