RIP Tim Conway

#1

Conway never fails to crack me up in any sketch he was in on the Carol Burnett Show. And as I recall, he usually cracked up the other cast members during the sketch as well.

#2

God dammit. He was one of the first funny people I took note of during my childhood, and I’ve just been a massive fan ever since. RIP sir, and thank you.

Let’s play some classics:

Loved watching him on the Carol Burnett show each Saturday night when I was growing up. Carol Burnett is in my town tonight to share excerpts from the show and take questions from the audience and I am taking my mom for Mother’s Day present. Be interested in seeing what she says - won’t be an easy evening for her.

#5

Sad news. The elephant skit is one of my favorites.

#6

Oh wow. Update us on what she said. Conway/Harvey/Vicki etc were great. I loved most of the variety series and was a fan of mama’s family…not much on back that but mama’s family could be good.

Conway was great with Knotts too.

#7

Oh man, I loved the Carol Burnett show, Tim Conway and the rest of the cast were fantastic and had such great chemistry.

RIP.

#8

I was going to post a joke yesterday about when The Shaggy D.A. was going to get a video game version. Weird. Anyway, sad news. I loved Don Knotts and Tim Conway when I was a kid. The Apple Dumpling Gang FTW.

#9

Don’t forget McHales Navy!

#10

I’ve been a fan most of my life. He started his comedy career as a sidekick to the Friday night schlock horror movie host on a local Cleveland station. The he headed to LA and appearances on the Steve Allen show before landing the McHale’s Navy gig. Got to meet him as a teenager when he was visiting his hometown of Chagrin Falls, OH. A very nice and very funny man. RIP

#11

I grew up 5 minutes away from Chagrin Falls in Novelty, OH. Between Tim Conway and Bill Watterson, that town has produced some true comedy geniuses!

#12

What’s a Tim Conway?

RIP

God, I loved the Carol Burnett Show growing up. And even after it ended I would stop down anytime I came across reruns. So damn good. And everyone has always said such a sweet guy. Very sorry to see him go.

#14

Wasn’t National Lampoon founder (and Stork in Animal House) Doug Kenney also from there?

#15

Tim Conway: There Can Be Only One.
And we will never have another like him.
A true classic.
RIP

#16

Damn, you’re right! Wiki says Kenney was born in FL then moved to Chagrin Falls. They must put some funny shit in their popcorn balls.

#17

Wasn’t he Peg Bundy’s dad?

#18

I dunno, but I just googled the words “Peg Bundy’s dad” and saw a picture of Tim Conway. The plot thickens.

#19

Peg’s father was Ephraim Wanker (Tim Conway). What a name.
