Remembering Carol Channing 1921 - 2019



In 2010, I was honored and thrilled to interview the legendary Carol Channing. She was very quiet at the beginning of our phone conversation, which included her adoring husband, Harry Kullijian. But once I started asking her specific questions, it was like a light suddenly switched on and the Carol we all know and love magically appeared. And then I just sat there in a state of bliss and listened to her stories. The interview will always remain a highlight of my life (click here to read it).

Besides seeing her twice in Hello, Dolly! during her 1994-97 National Tour of the musical, I also fondly remember her being the first audience member to give a standing ovation after a Sunday afternoon performance of the Broadway musical, The Life, in May 1997.

Sadly, Carol left this world on Tuesday at age 97, but I do find some comfort knowing that she and Harry (who died in 2011) are together again.

Below you can enjoy my 94 Groovy Things about Carol Channing on her birthday post from January 31, 2015, which I've updated with some additional videos.
