Look at the Dentist Sketch from the Carol Burnett show. You will see Harvey and Tim Conway at their best. Plus it's a chance to see Harvey try not to lose it completely. Way funny. He will be missed.

I am so devastated to hear this! Just a few weeks ago, I went onto UTube to watch all of the Harvey/Tim videos that I could find from the Carol Burnett Show. i LOVED Harvey; he was masterful and brought SO much joy to so many.

Truly, I am deeply saddened and send my sympathies to his family, friends, and everyone who loved him.

You will always be remembered, Harvey.

My Father has the complete set of The Carol Burnett Show and its timeless. I watched the show growing up and found it funny, only as an adult do I realize just how talented all those people were. The Dentist Sketch is my all time favorite. Watching Tim and Harvey attempt to get through the thing without cracking up was priceless. Harvey Korman was such a talent and he will be missed by all those he touched and made laugh. My thoughts are with his family. RIP Harvey, keep them laughing on the other side!
