Gay Iconography: Carol Burnett Is A Sketch Comedy Queen


She’s won Golden Globes, Emmy Awards, a Peabody, and more, but if there is one piece of hardware associated with the great Carol Burnett, it’s a curtain rod. The absolute queen of sketch comedy, Burnett is responsible for some of the most memorable moments in television history, including a certain green dress.

Adored by all audiences, she’s revered in the gay community for her outrageous humor and over the top performances. A singer, actress and comedienne, she’s inspired many LGBT performers, especially more than a few drag queens, including RuPaul (who called Drag Race a new generation's Carol Burnett Show) and Sherry Vine. In 2010, she appeared at the LA Gay and Lesbian Center’s Anniversary gala along with host Lily Tomlin and honoree Jane Lynch.
