It seems like it was a little too perfectly set up to be spontaneous.

And then there's Maude-lin.

For the longest time, I tuned in to this youtube video around the time the "Maude" look alike was onstage and had begun the song. I thought she was involved with the lady from NY and was serenading the NY lady. I thought they were lesbian lovers.

I remember when this aired originally in the 1970's.

Me too. She was obviously a plant, but everyone remarked on it at the time.

What's his name?

Who on earth was the little British girl who guest starred on a couple of occasions, perhaps best remembered as Nancy, the student who placed a tape recorder in a large gift box at a bus stop because she had been accused of dishonesty? She did everyone for a brief period in the early 1970s then disappeared.

R7 Lena Zavaroni was a Scottish child singer who was known for being "the little girl with the big voice." And in the Age of Rock, she sang the Standards that made her so popular with Carol Burnett, Johnny Carson, and Jerry Lewis. Unfortunately, she couldn't deal with fame, she had depression and anorexia, and she died at 35 from pneumonia.

She's an imposter!

Didn't Carol do a sketch parodying Maude? I think the maid was called North Dakota or something similar in a parody of Florida on Maude.

Fat lady: "Is that Maude???"
Once the woman gets on stage and doesn't need to be miked, it's pretty obvious.

Thanks, r9. So sad.

It was called "Broad", and Isabel Sanford was the week's guest.

Did you see the comments' section:

I don't think it was really the fame thing. Her mother killed herself.

Oh, Christ, a Carol Burnett Show truther.
Considering there are no visible mike packs on Carol, Faux Maude, or the fat lady, do you believe Joe Hamilton had access to secret miniature mike technology that he hoarded for decades just to pull off a gag on one episode of a variety show? Would it be naive to suggest they may have been using this miracle of 1970s technology?

Hardly a truther but not believing this was as spontaneous as it comes off.

The Florida character was "New Jersey."

LOL at the Theresa Renteria shout-out, r4.
Have seen this clip countless times but never noticed until this viewing that the guy sitting behind the fat woman who asks the question (not visible when she's standing up to ask, only when they cut to her during the song) is HAWT! See 1:17 in the clip.

According to the YouTube comments someone posted this...
This is my grandmother and her name is Terry Mccann and she is now 96 years old and living in Michigan. Memory is not so good but she is doing well.
Well how about that!

A small part of Carol's "Broad" sketch that parodied Maude has eventually made it onto YouTube.

Yeah it was set up, you notice how the house band just "happened" to know the song she wanted to sing?

Isn't this the same woman?

This is her singing with Lionel Ritchie.

That can't be the same woman. She was 50 or so in the late 70s and she'd be NINETY now.
Do some math, girls.
