Tim Conway and Harvey Korman had to be one of the greatest comedy duo's in history. Certainly in the history of Television.

Tim Conway was a genius at physical comedy without the "slapstick" aspect as well. Just a look, or a single word, or picking something up...

He will most definitely be remembered!

The Apple Dumpling Gang will not ride again .... sad indeed.

He was by far the best part of the Carol Burnett show.

I knew he was sick. I listen to his son, on local talk radio. Tim Conway Jr.

He was amazing, funny and I feel older every day, as my favorites are leaving us.

Definitely agree. The Carol Burnett show was definitely one of the best shows ever on television.

Dangit!!

R.I.P.

As others here have already said, this guy was hilarious! McHale's Navy, Carol Burnett, Dorf, plus many other shows. He always made me laugh way back when I was a kid. Sorry to hear his last years were not without serious health issues.

Brilliant. (who qualifies to have Jonathan Winters as a friend and audience?)

Asked in a 2011 interview about comedy today, Conway replied: “I hang onto the oldies. Jonathan Winters calls me about three times a week, and I never answer the phone. I have all of his messages recorded. He always calls with a different character and he wants me to do something or appear somewhere or go to an Army-Navy store for something. I have hundreds of these on the answering machine, but I never talk to him. Once in a great while I will pick up and talk to him.

“I kind of fall back on that. But Bob Newhart and I, and Mike Connors, Steve and Eydie, get together every Tuesday night and have dinner, just to sit and talk. Most of the conversations have already been told 20 or 30 times. But we just keep in touch like that.

Absolutely one of the funniest guys I ever watched on television, or any other medium. HIs "Dentist" skit with Harvey Korman was priceless. Even when I knew what was coming next I still cracked up. A great showman!

RIP Tim.

Tim Conway Takes a Reaaally Slow Tumble in Lost Carol Burnett Show Clip

[www.youtube.com]

That clip is a lot like Monty Python’s “Ministry of Silly Walks.” If you told me the entire premise, and I thought about it for an entire MONTH, my version of the re-enactment would not be 5% as funny as the original.

The premise alone is very funny but the delivery is over-the-top..

A genuinely funny guy. It wasn't until tonight tho, that I realized that he and Korman were a genius pairing. I never really cared for Korman - too over-the-top and prone to break up at his own schtick - but for just those reasons he was a perfect foil for straight-faced Conway.

The dentist sketch will be a comedy classic for a loooong time.

In the later years we never enjoyed seeing the "Momma's World" sketches that appeared on the Carol Burnet Show. (So the eventual spinoff was a total non-starter here.)

Tremendously unfunny, even for city folk used to seeing rural people made fun of or "depicted."

But this unedited clip reveals yet another Conway treasure, and it's a tribute to the director's unwillingness to cut the scene short "just in case." His ability to possess not just the audience but his cohorts was amazing.

I gave my mom a "Dorff on Fishing" video. I remember watching and laughing at/with him and how he would crack Korman up!

Comedy has to be
edgy
sophisticated
daring
“smart”
dirty
“go there”
political
not ‘PC’
to be really funny.

Yeah, no.

I’m definitely not your hanky hugging aunty. Lenny Bruce, Mort Saul, Red Foxx, Dick Gregory, Richard Pryor, Bobcat Goldwait, Sam Kinison, Chappelle, Chris Rock, Sarah Silverman I’ve laughed my butt off at all of them.

But when I think of the can’t breathe, please stop laughs I’ve had the most over the years, Burns and Allen, Marx Brothers, Carl Burnett, Tim Conway, Flip Wilson, Bob Newhart, Mel Brooke’s, Fry and Laurie, Cleese, Trevor Noah’s stand up.
