Rest in Peace, Harvey

Harvey Korman is either one of those people you’ve never heard of or one of those people you won’t soon forget. The work that Tim Conway and Harvey did on the Carol Burnett show is classic television and some of the funniest moments I’ve witnessed when I was younger. There are times when a comedian will make me laugh or catch me off guard, but the Conway/Korman duo would consistantly bring tears to my young eyes with their banter. I consider The Dentist Sketch to be one of my all time favorites and was lucky enough to find a copy of it on YouTube. Watching Conway work is always entertaining, but the sight of Korman attempting to maintain takes it to another level.

At the age of 33, I don’t know that many of my peers even know who Harvey is, but I encourage anyone looking for a nice, solid laugh to go dig up some classic Carol Burnett and take in the work of a great comedic duo. The rest of the cast is far from a slouch, but the duo of Conway/Korman working together almost guaranteed laughs.
