His Carol Burnett Show skits with Harvey Korman where they are both trying not to break up is required comedy viewing.

One of the best and will be missed dearly.


A rep for Conway tells Variety he died from water on the brain.
In later years, Conway had success with his “Dorf” series of comic how-to videos in which he played a bumbling, diminutive Scandinavian character by standing on his knees.



Dorf was hilarious!

One of his best skits was as the Dentist with Harvey Korman

Brilliant comedic actor.

The Korman and Burnett skits were utter gold at times.

The dentist one ^^^....if you dont laugh at that you have no soul.

Really sad, I mean I get he was old, but I remember growing up with Tim Conway on the Carol Burnett show where his whole purpose in life seemed to be to crack the crew up.


He was so brilliant and so good at physical comedy.


He will be missed.
