2/13, the funny thing is, I did all of those positions before never becoming a famous actor.

You got 5 out of 13
Not a great day on the job today! Better luck next time. Even Don Knotts thought your performance could use some improvement.

Surprised I got any right! I didn't know any of them, guessed them all.

6/13 I guessed at a lot of these except Carol Burnett's. I remember her saying she was a ticket girl at the movies.

10/13. Some tripped me up, some pure instinctual guesses, a few I recall reading. Carol and Gavin each told interesting tales of their early jobs in their autobiographies, for example.

8/13
Most of the ones I knew is because I have read some of the actors auto-biographies. And some I guessed on.
