Mrs. Hughes has become an Internet comedy sensation as a grandmother who has learned to embrace modern technology to spread her pearls of motherly and grandmotherly wisdom. Her act is punctuated with pithy observations on parenting, hot flashes, and husbands, “They’re like brassieres. Sometimes you just want to be rid of them and go free. But you can’t ‘cause you need the support." It was just this sort of remark that caught the eye of the Russ Berrie Company who featured Mrs. Hughes’ likeness and writing her own line of greeting cards. “According to Carol” was in 100,000 stores and gift shops throughout the United States. When Merv Griffin found her, he instantly made her the comedy star of his revue, “Love and Kisses” at Resorts in Atlantic City and then “Island Fever” near Las Vegas.
So if anyone happens to ask, “What’s a nice lady like Mrs. Hughes doing in a Comedy Club?” The answer is, “Cracking people up!”
