Carol Burnett to Place Handprints, Footprints Outside TCL Chinese Theatre

HOLLYWOOD (CNS) – Carol Burnett will place her handprints and footprints in cement in the forecourt of the TCL Chinese Theatre in Hollywood Thursday, the latest in a series of honors in her hometown.

Talk show host Jimmy Kimmel and Burnett’s castmates in the AppleTV+ comedy “Palm Royale” Laura Dern and Bob Odenkirk are set to join her in speaking in the 10 a.m. ceremony.

Burnett received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 1975, was depicted on a mural at her alma mater Hollywood High School completed in 2002 and had the intersection of Highland and Selma avenues, adjacent to Hollywood High School, named after her in 2013.

Burnett was born in San Antonio on April 26, 1933, and moved to Hollywood as a child with her grandmother to a one-room apartment near her mother after her parents divorced and separately moved to Hollywood.

Burnett is best known for the 1967-78 CBS variety show, “The Carol Burnett Show.” She has won three Emmys as a performer, a Grammy for best spoken word album for the audio book for her 2016 memoir about her show, “In Such Good Company: Eleven Years Of Laughter, Mayhem, And Fun In The Sandbox,” and a special Tony Award.
