Good-Bye Harvey Korman

 

Honestly, I had not thought about Harvey Korman, of the Carol Burnett Show, for years until I read that he just died at age 81. I spent many happy hours at home watching the funny skits of the Carol Burnett Show on television. 

The world was a simpler place then. This evening I watched a few of their skits on Youtube, and warm waves of memory washed over me… a kind of longing for that world that seemed safer and warmer…

Although I did not think Harvey was as funny as Tim Conway or Carol Burnett or even Vickie Lawrence, I did enjoy him stifling his laughter week after week as he performed next to these very funny people. Here is one of my favorite clips.

  1. Tim and Harvey just had such comedic harmony. I will always laugh the most at Harvey Korman in “Blazing Saddles”. That movie is the funniest ever.
    One of my Top 10 movies of all time.
