    Default RIP Tim Conway

    My family loved to watch the Carol Burnette Show when I was little. Tim Conway was hilarious!

    Here's one of his most famous sketches. It starts slow, but picks up about 5:45 when he accidentally injects himself with Novocaine.



    Here's some funny bloopers:



    And his pranks at the Emmys:



    RIP, Tim.

    I know, I was so sad to hear this.

    That dentist one ..... I was in tears watching it a couple weeks ago!

    He really was hilarious! And Carol and Harvey usually couldn't keep without laughing either.

    RIP Tim.

    Loved Tim and the Carol Burnett Show. They showed you could be hysterical without being crude or insulting people.

    Tim especially was a riot, and brought happiness to so many. RIP.

    Another icon from my youth, gone.

    Thanks for the clips, Soda. Great memories.

    I also loved Tim Conway - he was a reeaaalllly goofy guy and kept everyone in stitches. He had a really good run, though and what many of us would give to return to those happier, more civil times that he inspired. My thoughts are with his family and loved ones.

    R.I.P. Tim

    I loved watching him on the Carol Bernette Show. That dentist sketch is a classic - so funny. They were showing it on the news the other day and I laughed my butt off. May he RIP.

    Here's Vicki Lawrence talking about the famous elephant scene. It is hilarious.

    When Thoroughbred racing started the Breeders' Cupô day of racing, Tim Conway was always a part of that, playing a character (think his Dorf golfer in jockey silks). It was always fun watching him crack up Harvey Korman.
