RIP Tim Conway and thanks for the laughs.
That video sums up his comedic genius perfectly. RIP, good sir.
RIP. Such a funny man.
Hope my Grandma gets to meet him up there. She used to laugh so much thanks to him. This has to be the definition of greatness, when one person can generate an unbroken thread of good memories through all the people of all generations.
A true funny man of the first magnitude - farewell Tim Conway.
RIP Tim Conway. Your comedic acting lives on.
Tim was off the charts funny... Almost everything seemed to be done "on the fly"!
RIP funny man - you will be missed.
A comedic genius.
Tim Conway, Lena Horne, Doris Day. We're seeing that generation of entertainers leave us now in quick succession. As always with death, the inevitability never tempers the sadness.
Bummer. Few things were as funny as Tim Conway and Harvey Korman together in a skit on the Carol Burnett Show, and Conway inevitably getting Korman to break-up:
A true comedy legend.
Rest in Peace, Tim.
My earliest memories of Tim Conway came from reruns of McHale's Navy. Even on a comedy with many other funny actors, Tim stood out. Some of the best bits were exchanges between Ensign Parker (Conway's character) and Captain Binghamton (Joe Flynn). The Carol Burnett Show showcased even more of his brilliant lunacy. You will be missed, sir.
One of the funniest people ever. He just had a natural gift for creating humor out of thin air and infecting people with laughter. RIP, Tim Conway, and thanks for all the laughter.
Apparently, when The Carol Burnett Show was in production, the first thing Tim would do (when the actors all received their scripts) would be to go off in a corner and basically re-write all his lines from scratch. The rest of the cast had absolutely no idea what he was going to say!
