Can you tell the difference between Carol Burnett and Lucille Ball?

How well do you know these two comedy icons?

Lucille Ball was a trailblazer in the entertainment industry. She starred in multiple successful sitcoms and was a mogul behind the scenes. It’s no wonder that Carol Burnett has cited her as a hero and an inspiration.

Of course, Burnett is an icon in her own right. These two hilarious women were good friends in real life and appeared on each other's shows many times. While they had some things in common, they were also very different.

Can you tell who is who based on the questions below?

Q: Which one married a drummer younger than herself?
A: Both. Desi was six years younger than Lucy. Carol Burnett's current husband is Brian Miller, principal drummer for the Hollywood Bowl Orchestra, 23 years her junior.

12/13. Didn't know Lucy did Broadway.
Yep! She sure did...my Mom and older sister saw her on Broadway back in the day 😉
Yes, the play was "Wildcat", and its most famous song was "Hey Look Me Over"!
Below, is a snapshot of the Rat Pack. But it's an incomplete photo. The reason why it is incomplete because none of the Rat Pack Mascots are pictured. Does anybody know what were the names of these 5 folks?
That's easy, for me that is! I'll even name them from oldest to youngest. Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Joey Bishop, Peter Lawford, and Sammy Davis, Jr..
WRONG!!!!! Sammy, Dean, Peter, Joey and Frank were not the names of the mascots. The 5 mascots were: Buddy Greco. Shirley MacLaine. Angie Dickinson. Marilyn Monroe. and Juliet Prowse.
I apologize. I must've not paid attention to the "mascot" part.

I was 8/13. I've watched a lot of "The Lucy Show" & "Here's Lucy" but I've never watched Carol Burnett. That Tarzan call she always did used to turn my stomach. Never a fan of her.

10/13 other then being very pretty never liked Lucy’s shows. Carrol’s on the other hand was an all time classic.
