One of the better comedians of all time. He died last night. One of his funnier skits. He never could keep a straight face when working with Tim Conway.

Don't forget his contributions to two of the best Mel Brooks' movies of all time:

History Of The World Part I - Count Da Money!!! Du Monet... Du Monet!!!

Blazing Saddles - Hedley Lamar:

His legendary crack ups with Tim Conway on the the Burnett show, was for some why they tuned in! It was not so much the skit or joke, it was how those two would react.
Sucks when we lose a top banana and a TOP second banana too.
"Saddles' is one of the best.
Korman was hilarious.
God is probably cracking up as we speak. :D
We will miss you H.K.

It's Sunday & I'm shocked that I'm just now hearing about this!! The Carol Burnett Show brings back some memories. Growing up, that show was the only show that my family could agree on watching together (this was before the days of a TV in every room). Too sad.

I hope that there will be a Carol Burnett marathon on NickTV in Harvery's memory.
