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. She also caught the eye of the Russ Berrie Company who featured Mrs. Hughes’ likeness and wit in her own line of greeting cards. According to Carol was in 100,000 stores and gift shops throughout the United States. About Mrs. Hughes, Merv said, “She’s my new favorite funny star.” Since then she has appeared in several casino production shows and has opened for Crystal Gayle, Lou Rawls, Brenda Lee and others. So if any one happens to ask, “What’s a nice lady like Mrs. Hughes doing in a Comedy Club?” The answer is, “Cracking people up!”
