Goodbye Harvey

Harvey Korman and Tim ConwayI read this morning of the death of one my all time favorite comedians. Harvey Korman died yesterday at 81 from complications he experienced from the rupture of an abdominal aortic aneurysm.

Some of my fondest memories as a child were watching him and Tim Conway trying unsuccessfully to get through a skit on the old Carol Burnett Show without cracking up and as I got older and could appreciate it, his teaming up with Mel Brooks in the all-time great comedy "Blazing Saddles" was better still.

Goodbye Mr Hedley Lamarr, you will be missed.

UPDATE: Here is one of those classic Korman/Conway bits
