Top 11 Comedy Heroines: Betty White

07 . Betty White . Betty White is the comedy icon. She truly made a career out of television, coming out of a generation that came of age in the Great Depression and experienced the period of the most widespread economic hardship our country has ever seen. She is amazing, a cultural icon from her time on The Mary Tyler Moore Show, The Betty White Show, and The Golden Girls. We love her – she’s a national treasure.

White is an animal rights activist; plus she’s great at making fun of herself. Her turn on SNL, her 2007 “Ugly Betty White” sketch, and her guest spot on Ugly Betty, have proven that she may be older, but she’s still got it. She’s inspiration for those seeking a long-term career.

Some Choice Betty White Quotes

Top 11 Comedy Heroines: Betty White

“I don’t find any shows hard. I just enjoy them. Doing drama is, in a sense, easier. In doing comedy, if you don’t get that laugh, there’s something wrong.”

“Oh, I don’t need sleep. I just went to my hotel and had a cold hot dog and a vodka on the rocks.”

“Gays love old ladies.”
