A few months ago, I spent the day reading his autobiography. Great book, if you've not taken the time. Such an incredible and very natural comedian. A true master of the craft.

Yesterday ... Doris Day ... now Tim.
A very sad week indeed.

Tim was a genius and that show was amazing. So much talent. He will be missed.

Glad I saw this post, as I haven't yet heard about this on the news. Very sad. But, Tim leaves a great legacy and one of the funniest comedian/actors of his time. RIP Tim!

Sad... Weird coincidence, just yesterday, my wife and I watched the dentist sketch on YouTube.

I was a huge fan of The Carol Burnett Show as a kid. I can remember when she had Tim on as a guest; he killed every time. Carol was an obvious, vocal fan of Tim, and campaigned to get him on as a regular. Her enthusiasm proved to be genius. Once Tim was on full-time, the show really took an upward turn. From that point onward, I watched anything with Tim or Harvey in it. True story: I used to work with a married lady named Wiggins. Each and every time I addressed her, it was in the voice of Mr. Tudball. Thankfully, she was a good sport.
God bless you, Tim Conway.

Easily the funniest man I have ever had the pleasure of watching. :salute:



Now he's back to tormenting poor Harvey. :laughing6:





And THIS ONE kills me every time I watch it.
Nothing like a pair of Siamese Elephants




RIP Funny Man.
Agreed. The elephant sketch has to be the funniest in history.

The best was watching Harvey trying to stay in character as Tim did his thing...He'd crack Harvey up every time. I need to spend an evening watching some of those old clips. Great stuff.
