    Funny, funny guy. Used to watch him on McHale’s Navy way back when. Always loved how Harvey Korman couldn’t keep a straight face when they were in a sketch together on Carol Burnett

    One reason for this was because Tim was a writer for the show. He would write the sketch, and then go off script... so Harvey had no idea what was coming.

    I didn't know that. Thanks

    I didn't either. Heard it on a portion of an old interview with TC that was replayed this morning. Made it so much more understandable.

    He went off script all the time, that’s what messed all of them up. That one I linked was completely improvised.

    This is the Conway/Korman sketch I heard referenced most often after Conway died. I'm surprised I'd never seen it before.

    My dad used to let me try to stay up to watch The Carol Burnett Show and when I was really little I would always fall asleep. So much comedic talent on that show. Real talent. Tim Conway especially.

    I remember so many laugh-so-hard-your-diaphragm-spasms laughters.

    Saturday night was the best night for TV. Carol Burnett, Mary Tyler Moore, Newhart.
