Harvey Korman

Harvey Korman passed away today. When I was little, the Carol Burnett Show was a must-watch event. The best part was always waiting to see if Harvey Korman would lose his composure during his sketches, especially the ones with Tim Conway. In honor and in memory of Mr. Korman, I give you one of their most talked about sketches:

Terrible, terrible news. He was a comedic icon.

I remember watching all those amazing comedians. It was the show where you got it all. A truly sad passing.
A lot of fond memories of him.

Oh how I wish we'd return to a time where comedy was actually funny, like when these guys were in their prime.

Thanks for the hilarious video RT.

You're welcome. Glad you had a moment of laughter.

Wyatt
Yes, he was. There was a generation of great creativity, and we are losing them.

Admiral
I agree. I loved watching him.

Snigglefrits
Yeah, people lack originality and creativity these days. They think blue humor is the only type of funny there is. It is often crass and that takes away from a lot of the funny aspects of their work. People of Korman's generation, while capable of being every bit as blue as today's comedians, were actually funny without it.

Momster
Glad to have given you a laugh. :)
