    Famous folks from Burlington?

    What do you think of our list of celebrities who've said they grew up in Burlington? 

    Does someone not deserve to be on this list because they weren't around long enough? 

    Did we forget anyone?

    Steven Wright is by far the most famous Burlington resident.  Not bad for a Terrace Hall Avenue guy!  David Diamond a close second.

    Aly Raisman is not FROM Burlington. She trained there. She probably goes shopping at the Chestnut Hill Mall but that doesn't mean she's from Newton. She's FROM Needham. Her house is in Needham. Her parents are in Needham. Her school is in Needham. Nuff said.
