Gender Swap Star Trek

Gender Swap Star Trek Parody on The Carol Burnett Show

The Carol Burnett Show had a very brief revival in 1991 that only lasted for 2 months. How they could pull the plug that quickly on a legend like Burnett baffled me at the time and still does today. I guess sketch comedy is hard or needed to be a little less tame? Still the short run did give us some interesting gems like this Gender Swap Star Trek Parody that starred Carol as Kirk, Andrea Martin as Spock and Richard Kind as a Klingon who have an encounter with the Estrogenus 7 anomaly.

Enjoy the genius of Carol Burnett

    Carol Burnett is a comedy genius.

    And it speaks to Star trek TOS’s wide-range of stories that a gender-swapping plotline actually occured (in the very last aired episode).
