"Comedy" is dead. Has been for afew years now. Tim Conway was a true comedian . On the Carol Burnett show he was hilarious. Especially with Harvey Korman. Loved when Harvey couldn't keep the laughter contained because Tim was soooooo funny.

One of the very best. He left quite a mark and will be forever missed.

I grew up watching the Carol Burnett show. There will never be another crew like that. Tim Conway made me laugh my ass off, but my favorites are when he would get the rest of the cast off-center with the ad lib stuff. A true comedian and gentleman from a different era. RIP Mr Conway and thanks for the smiles

Tony.


We always used to watch the Carol Burnett show as a family when I was growing up and I remember when he was a frequent guest and became a regular.

That skit was what came immediately to mind when I heard that Tim Conway had died. So many good ones, but I think that may be my favorite. He was a pretty darn good ventriloquist, too! Thanks for posting, Tony.

What I especially loved about Tim Conway is his humor was never mean-spirited, never hit below the belt to anyone, and never seemed directed towards anyone (at least, not in a negative way). Yet, he was still hilarious.

Not many comedians can say this anymore.

Yes, the Elephant Story outtake that never made it to air is a demonstration of Conway's innate funniness. Younger people these days have no idea how very funny a wholesome show can be. The Carol Burnett show was wholesome, and very funny. Great TV, and I feel so fortunate to have seen those shows when they aired for the first time. Not one single speck of politics or mean-spirited 'humor', no profanity (although, in the outtakes, Vicki Lawrence does drop a couple of umm harsh words). Quite literally, a TV show for the entire family.

And we can never go back Frown

That one has to be my all time favorite. I really enjoyed Korman and Conway together period. I am too young to have watched that show when it first came out, but have had a lot of fun watching re-runs/Youtube. My mom said the hardest she ever saw my grandpa laugh was when Carol Burnett came out onto the stairs wearing the green curtains with the curtain rod still attached in the Gone With The Wind skit.

Mr. Conway was definitely special and like many others here I really appreciate the few who are willing and able to pull off good, clean humor.

The Private Eyes was a favorite of mine. Wow, those scenes from that movie are stark memories for me as a kid. I need to watch that with my daughter in another year or two.
