HARVEY KORMAN 1927-2008

Before there was Saturday Night Live and Mad TV there was the Carol Burnett show. I LOVED that show as a kid. The actors were always busting up laughing at their funny skits and to me there is nothing funnier than cracking yourself up...Harvey Korman was hilarious. A good-bye to one of the funny ones.

My daughter just called to tell me he had died. Makes me very sad. He and Tim Conway were incredibly funny, obviously liked and respected each other. No canned laughter needed when these two were together. I also loved the Carol Burnett show - although I loved it as an ADULT!! Thanks for the tribute.

I didn't hear this, it makes me sad. Like Sandi, I thought he and Conway were hilarious, especially when they began to laugh, as they always did, during the skit.

I went to school with one of his nephews. There's a little trivia for ya!

Maria...you and me both! I love the skethes where they are laughing so hard they cry and can't keep it in...its always the inopportune places you get the major giggles. I don't know how they kept a straight face on that show ever. Carol Burnett is such a great gal...I hate that these older stars are dying off. thanks for watching. Nice to have you back. :)N

My favorite Carol Burnett Show skit was when they spoofed Gone With The Wind. I cracked up when she came down the stairs wearing the dress made out of the curtains and the rod was still in it. That was genius.

Mike I almost posted that scene...but I wanted one that had more Harvey in it...you are sooooo right absolutely genius. :)N
