RIP Tim Conway

I don't think there has been anyone funnier than Tim Conway, at least not in my life time! I remember watching the Carol Burnett show as a child, with my parents and my father was literally in tears from laughing so hard.

I've lost count how many times I've watched this outtake, including earlier today and I still laugh until I cry when I watch it. Pure comedic genius and if I recall, this was all ad-libbed by Tim Conway.


What he used to do to poor Harvey Korman (The Great Gazoo), was priceless!!

Dang, very sad news indeed. A transcendent, comedic genius that made millions of people laugh. Definitely a once in a lifetime talent and human being. He and Harvey Korman were magical and the Carol Burnett show couldn't have been any more right for its time, a perfect storm for comedy.

His ability to make other comedians lose their composure showed just how dang funny he really was. The Carol Burnett Show was always a favorite when I was a kid, and Tim Conway was the reason. Sad day indeed.

Few people have made me p#ss myself laughing as much as Tim Conway... "Comedic genius" does not do him justice.

I still look up those Carol Burnette show skits on YT when I want some real entertainment. The version of the elephant story that was shown at the time was great, but the outtake version is my all-time favorite.

Late to the party (no pun intended), but you guys have all pretty much described my opinions and feelings on Tim Conway. Genius!

Ditto to all that was said. One of a kind genius comedian. If I remember correctly, they would tape each show twice, and Tim would play it pretty much by the script the first time, and the second show, he would ad-lib to try to crack the others up, especially Harvey!
