Harvey Korman, Tim Conway, Carol Burnett, and Vicki Lawrence all became household names because to the success of The Carol Burnett Show, one of the most watched programs of the 1960s and 1970s. These two women recently played the lead characters in “Hide the dog,” one of their funny skits.
Vicki had never performed on stage before Carol selected her for the performance. Carol was aware that the newcomer would benefit the group, though. So they collaborated on the sketch “Carol & Sis.” It featured sketches centered on the two women.
Vicki looked physically similar to Carol. She still needed to practice her acting on stage, though. Thus, Carol and Harvey were a great assistance to her. Vicki portrayed Carol’s younger sister in the sketch “Carol & Sis.” Her mentors were them.
Under the supervision of Carol & Harvey, Vicki developed into a comedy talent in the humorous skit “Hide the dog.” The lighthearted comedy piece featured a woman who chose to foster a small dog. The woman’s husband, played by Harvey, had a dog allergy, so that was the issue they were dealing with.
The poor spouse had a “sneezing fit” as he took the platform. He was baffled as to why he got a quick allergic reaction. In the lighthearted farce, Harvey was lied to by Carol. However, she was in worse shape once the vet entered.
The cast’s over-the-top absurdity and unbreakable chemistry with one another made the skit “Hide the dog” a classic. In front of the crowd, Carol and her fellow performers cracked laughing at one another.
It was the first time a woman ran her own business and was in charge of such enormous responsibility in America. Viewers felt a sense of participation thanks to Carol’s genuine enjoyment of comedy and acting.
