My grandma used to love the Carol Burnett show. I watched it whenever I spent the night over at her house. I loved Tim Conway in a skit , where he was playing an old man. It was funny; he was taking forever to do things.
I loved the way he would make Harvey Korman laugh.
I miss that more natural, spontaneous, free-wheeling humor, rather than the rapid-fire dirty jokes. I love good satire, but that's a gift that few people have.
Tim Conway as an old man, with that vacant, mildly-confused look on his face, and his slow shuffle, was funny and endearing at the same time. The difference is--that we loved those characters, as we laughed at them, and we wanted to see them again and again, as old friends.
My favorite Conway moment. Carol Burnett and Korman doing a sketch while in the background Conway playing a dismissed butler tries to exit the room through large double doors with handles smeared in oil.
