Ruth Buzzi
3 November 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Does anyone remember this particular show when Johnny Carson was not hosting but Roy Clark was the guest host? Ruth Buzzi was a guest that night. She was a good comedienne in her day--quite refreshing from some of the so-called comedy of today. But this particular show must have been embarrassing for her for Roy Clark got up to sing a spiritual song with another guest. Ms. Buzzi apparently thought it was a good time to perform (what normally might have been humorous) an imitation of a chicken rolling around on the stage. Roy and his guest were deep into the song so Ms. Buzzi was ignored as the camera stopped focusing on her and closed in on Roy and his other guests. I suppose Ms. Buzzi might have tried to "play it off" but I remember it every time I see her on any other TV show. I felt sorry for her having to try and "live that down" but I suppose all actors and actresses have regrets. It comes with the territory.
