Thanks for sharing Hazel. I used to love this show. Tim Conway and Harvey Korman had said one time that they had a contest to see who could crack the other one up. Made it hysterically funny sometimes. Conway won this round :-) Enjoy!
don't forget Harvey Korman and Blazing Saddles too. "That's Hedley..."
That would mean I could hang out with Mel Brooks,. Harvey Korman and the gang. Cool.
Harvey Korman walked into this live skit without having the benefit of a rehearsal. The antics of Tim Conway were...
I always loved the skits by Tim Conway and Harvey Korman. Harvey could never keep a straight face!
Maybe live comedy wasn't the right field for Harvey Korman. Tim Conway broke him up every theme. Love them.
One of the most hilarious sketches I've ever seen. Everytime I watch it I'm like Harvey Korman. I can't stop...
"That's totally awesome & funny when Jimmy Fallon laughs during his sketches" --- young people who never saw Harvey Korman on Carol Burnett
LOL everytime I hear Raisinets I think of Blazing Saddles when Harvey Korman runs to the candy counter & screams RAISINETS!
Here's a GREAT morning laugh.Tim Conway and Harvey Korman in a skit from the Carol Burnett Show. The funniest...
Remember the Carol Burnett Show? Harvey Korman could never hold it together throughout any of their skits. So...
Someone shared your Dentist skit w/Harvey Korman today & I was crying I was laughing so hard. What a classic.
I like the S&M scene with Harvey Korman and Cloris Leachman.
I still love The Carol Burnett Show after all these years. Tim Conway & Harvey Korman comic genius...
You have permission to laugh your *** off. Tim Conway and Harvey Korman in "The Dentist." Happy Monday:
Classic! It doesn't get much better than Tim Conway and Harvey Korman
So Hilarious!!! Loved how Tim Conway used to get Harvey Korman laughing during the skits! Cracks me up!
I loved Tim Conway growing up - and what makes this even funnier is Harvey Korman's reaction to Conway's...
Or as Carol Burnett and Harvey Korman played them, "Funt & Mundane"
I ride the "common clay of the New West" line pretty hard. And Harvey Korman should have retired Best Supporting Actor.
One of the funniest sketches ever! Watch Harvey Korman trying not to laugh.
Good 'ole comedy from Tim Conway and Harvey Korman from the Carol Burnett Show. Thanks Rick Ruoff for sharing...
...and Harvey Korman in drag, explaining the intricacies of cooking Bantha meat...
Harvey Korman was born on this day in 1927. Today on the tray, see him as “Mother Marcus, Canoga Falls’s leading yenta and chicken soup pusher" on The Carol Burnett Show.
Harvey Korman of the Carol Burnett Show, born today in 1927.

R.I.P. Sid Caesar who died February 12 at 91. This guy literally invented television comedy. Without him there would be no Saturday Night Lives or sitcoms or any of the funny stuff you enjoy on T.V. everyday. He spawned the careers of Neil Simon, Mel Brooks, Carl Reiner, Imogene Coca, Carol Burnett, Vicki Lawrence, Harvey Korman, Tim Conway, Don Knotts and the list is endless.
If you want to laugh hard watch this in its entirety. The Legendary team of Harvey Korman and Tim Conway. Enjoy
The Carol Burnett Show: As the Stomach Turns:The Funeral (Tim Conway as the Old Man & Harvey Korman as Mother Marcus)
Will there ever be a greater comedic trio than Carol Burnett, Harvey Korman and Tim Conway?
Spent the whole day, laughing with Carol Burnett, Tim Conway, and Harvey Korman. I got on the computer to do homework and have done absolutely nothing but laughed all day. Darn these youtube videos:P
I remember when Carol Burnet, *** Van *** and Harvey Korman were on The Gary Moore Show on week days mornings in black and white.
Watching "Blazing Saddles": Great comedy classic if you love Gene Wilder, Mel Brooks and Harvey Korman. Didn't think I'd ever get to say this in my life, but "they don't make'm like they used to."
I was given the name a of director; not sure what I have to say, only that three of my favorite movies are by this director: Mel Brooks. My favorite of his is without question The Producers, with Zero Mostel and Gene Wilder. Just the opening sequence alone, with Zero and the old ladies is enough to make me cry with laughter. My next favorite is Young Frankenstein with brilliant work by Gene Wilder, Madeline Kahn, Peter Boyle and Cloris Leachman in a great character role. The last of the three is hardly last, though: Blazing Saddles, an outrageous satire of racism and the Old West. To me, the Yiddish speaking Indian chief, played by Mel himself, ordering his warriors to "Loz im gayn!" before turning to another Indian and muttering, "shvartses! dere darker dan us!" was the funniest moment in the movie, but Harvey Korman and Madeline Kahn deserved oscars for their work.
One of the funniest movies of all time, if you haven't seen it and don't watch it tonight I don't want to be your friend. AMC: Friday, January 24 8:00 PM 1974, R, ***, 01:33, Color, English, United States, A black railroad worker is appointed sheriff of a town marked for destruction by a scheming politician. Cast: Cleavon Little, Gene Wilder, Madeline Kahn, Slim Pickens, David Huddleston, Liam Dunn, Alex Karras, John Hillerman, George Furth, Mel Brooks, Harvey Korman, Dom DeLuise, Richard Collier, Count Basie Director(s): Mel Brooks Producer(s): Michael Hertzberg
Mel Brooks' raunchy, insane Blazing Saddles had a heck of a time getting out the gate, but when it finally did, oh what a race it ran. With pitch perfect performances by Cleavon Little, Madeline Kahn and Harvey Korman, the little Western (spoof) that could took on racial bigotry, sex and bodily func...
Watching Herbie Goes Bananas. Cloris Leachman aggressively seducing a loony Harvey Korman is one of the strangest things in a Disney movie.
I am watching the Mark Twain Prize, which is honoring Carol Burnett. I still laugh out loud with Tim Conway, Harvey Korman and Carol Burnett.
Blazing Saddles (1974) Movie Info Vulgar, crude, and occasionally scandalous in its racial humor, this hilarious bad-taste spoof of Westerns, co-written by Richard Pryor, features Cleavon Little as the first black sheriff of a stunned town scheduled for demolition by an encroaching railroad. Little and co-star Gene Wilder have great chemistry, and the delightful supporting cast includes Harvey Korman, Slim Pickens, and Madeline Kahn as a chanteuse modelled on Marlene Dietrich. As in Young Frankenstein (1974), Silent Movie (1976), and High Anxiety (1977), director/writer Mel Brooks gives a burlesque spin to a classic Hollywood movie genre; in his own manic, Borscht Belt way, Brooks was a central player in revising classic genres in light of Seventies values and attitudes, an effort most often associated with such directors as Robert Altman and Peter Bogdanovich . Some of this film's sequences, notably a gaseous bean dinner around a campfire, have become comedy classics.
This is a The Family sketch from The Carol Burnett Show with Carol Burnett, Vicki Lawrence, Tim Conway and Harvey Korman. This sketch has been uploaded to yo...
Watching Carol Burnett makes me think of all the old school entertainers I have seen live on stage...Joan Worley and Carol Channing in Hello Dolly (separate shows) Harvey Korman and Tim Conway on stage.the Rockets, Patti Lupone, Chita Rivera, and so on.life is but a journey!
Making a movie list and just came up with "Oh Brother Where Art There Uncle Buck". LMAO!!! We are not confused! John Candy, Eugene Levy, Chevy Chase, Steve Martin, Madeline Kahn, Harvey Korman, Bernadette Peters, Teri Garr, Kevin Kline, Bill Murray, Gilda Radner, Come on everyone, add to my list!
Watching highlights from the old Carol Burnett Show. Nothing better. Tim Conway and Harvey Korman were hysterical

Tell me if you make past Harvey Korman and Bea Arthur... or if you figure out what Diahann Carroll purpose was.
Stephen Moyer seems to be doing Harvey Korman doing Ronald Colman
Really. Is there anything better than the Carol Burnett Show and watching Harvey Korman desperately trying not to lose it?
Just watched Carol Burnett get the Mark Twain Prize for American Humor on PBS ... Pound for Pound the Carol Burnett Show was the funniest on TV ... With the cast of Harvey Korman, Tim Conway, Vicki Lawrence and Lyle Waggoner killing it every week in the funniest sketch humor ever!
Here is a classic comedy routine at the dentist from the Carol Burnett Show. At about 6 minutes in, watch Harvey Korman try to hold back his laughter! Enjoy!
Watching Blazing Saddles with my 12 yr old for the first time, Harvey Korman, Gene Wilder, Madeline Kahn, and Mel Brooks, Classic!
Don't miss watching "Carol Burnett: The Kennedy Center Mark Twain Prize airs on PBS stations nationwide on Sunday, November 24 at 8 p.m. ET." Many members of the original cast will be on hand to honour her and have a little fun!! I can't imagine what the Tim Conway, Harvey Korman, etc will look like now.
Seeing footage of Tim Conway making Harvey Korman fall to pieces in The Carol Burnett Show never gets old.
There was nothing like Harvey Korman losing it over Tim Conway!
20 minutes of aimless Wookie roars and Harvey Korman with four arms floats your boat, eh?
I remember it being crappy but I don't remember Harvey Korman!
My buddy has it on VHS. It’s pretty wild. And not in a good way. And Harvey Korman!
Wow, 35 years ago today The Star Wars Holiday Special aired on CBS. Who could forget all the stuff that happened in there like Chewbacca's family communicating without any subtitles, Art Carney, Jefferson Starship's preforming "Light the sky on fire", the cartoon that featured Boba Fett, Luke Skywalker's hair cut, Harvey Korman not being funny, and the Wookie Life day celebration. So I would like to say to everyone Happy Life Day! and Happy 35th anniversary to The Star Wars Holiday Special, You worthless piece of crap!
Seriously. Harvey Korman is in nearly every scene, playing all sorts of characters. (Also, wondering how you saw that post)
Okay, play'en a game! Let's see if I get it right this time?! If you "like" this, then I give you a number and that's how many things you have to tell about yourself that not very many people know.

Happy Wookie Life Day!! where is Harvey Korman or Irene Cara when you need them?
Thankfulness Day 17--lsughter and a sense of humor. I think I got my sense of humor frim my dad. He had the best belly laugh. I remember watching Carol Burnett and the tears streaming doen his face laughing at Harvey Korman and Tim Conway. I can still hear him laughing talking to his friends Charlie and Frank. I love comedies and a good joke. The sweetest sound is my grandbabies giggles. With Patricia Paul Michelle Rogelstad Bertsch Cindy Atkinson Susie Schneibel
It's hard to believe that 35 years ago today we were introduced to Chewbacca's Family,got to see TV Legends Bea Arthur,Harvey Korman & Art Carney as characters in the SW universe,and of course the first appearance of the deadliest Bounty Hunter in the Galaxy,and it's only been shown on TV ONCE ! Happy Life Day everyone !
Ep1.10 - There's something about Harvey Korman's snarky rage that makes me feel at home.
The Time Warner wireless guy is Tim Conway. I am Harvey Korman. And this would be hilarious if it ended with my Netflix working.
Okay, Luke's makeup made him look like he just threw a spacesuit over his drag outfit, now we have Harvey Korman who really is in drag.
I was given the number 7 by my sister Lisa so here goes (1) I once accidentally threw a plate of food on two Colonels at HAFB to get away from a bee (2) I am very allergic to bees (that is why happened (3) I was an extra in 2 movies while living in Los Angeles in my early 20s they were Long Shot with Harvey Korman and Tim Conway and then Number One with a Bullet with Billy Dee Williams, Robert Carradine and Valerie Bertinelli and it was not that fun to do (4) I have been in all the States in the US except Alaska, Rhode Island and Maine (5) I love my grandkids very much (6) I have a bachelor of science in accounting but actually negotiate and sign government contracts (the accounting does come in at some point but most of what I do is legal pertaining to federal laws vs the accounting) (7) I have a very long Bucket List for when and if I get to retire
Sorry, but the part of Count de Monet is already being played by Harvey Korman.
Hedy Lamarr was the badass/actress/inventor. Hedley Lamarr was not (but Harvey Korman was pretty badass IRL too).
I was given the number 13 by Marisa Miller. Thanks Marisa! 13 things you may or may not know about me: 1.My favorite art is dance. Moving to music is blissful. 2. I love foreign films.

Tim Conway on cracking up Harvey Korman on The Carol Burnett Show: 'You can see Harvey wet his pants from laughing.'.
For Friday, Reubens, Rachels, broccoli and cheese soup and cookies! And I still have three copies of the Star Wars Holiday Special--seriously, if you want it, just ask! (It has all the stars of the movie, plus the first appearance of Boba Fett, Bea Arthur singing to a giant rat, a Harvey Korman robot, Art Carney grooving to Jefferson Starship, Chewbacca's dad Itchy and his son Lumpy... I swear I'm not even kidding. It's way surreal, and George Lucas would not even put his name on it. Worth it for the 1978 ads alone. Get yours Friday!)
In this speech she'd be dry *** Harvey Korman's head volcano thing at this point w/ Jefferson Starship in the background
My friend Juliana Gaul gave me the number 8 I I have to tell you ten things you may not know about me. If you want to play just comment on or like this post and I'll give you a number. 1. I was raised a devout Mormon 2. I never took a sewing class 3. I had the honor of being Harvey Korman's last dresser at his last performance with Tim Conway. 4. I have 5 degrees--3 in Theatre--Nursing, Theatre Arts, Liberal Arts, BA-Drama, MFA Technical Theatre Production Design. 5. I am afraid of heights--Bad 6.

I am truly fascinated to this day by the resilience of these 2 women. 7. Bought hamburger at the same butcher as John Wayne as a child on Sunday's and I saw him several time in my childhood.

Totally ... question is, who should take on the Harvey Korman role?
You've seen this before, but I don't care. It's too good not to see it again. Tim Conway is the dentist. Harvey Korman is the patient.
Carol Burnett,Tim Conway reunite & reminisce to promote his memoir (remember when Harvey Korman peed himself on TV?)
They sure were! Harvey Korman laughing at Tim Conway was priceless! Solid Gold!
I just caught a Paid Advertisement on WUCW TV as I channel surfed. It so happened to be for the Carol Burnett Show, and it cost me 100 well-spent dollars for a collection of her shows. Fortunately, I had the opportunity to see Tim Conway and the late Harvey Korman twice in the Twin Cities through my tours. I am so looking forward to receiving the DVD's of some awesome TV entertainment. Memories are about to come alive!
Tim Conway on Carol Burnett, Harvey Korman and how he nearly shot an Army lieutenant with a lightbulb
Watching Carol Burnette and Friends. Brings back memories of long ago. Literally a Laugh a minute, with Burnette, Harvey Korman, and Tim Conway.
The Carol Burnett Show really was hilarious! Harvey Korman could never hold his laughter around Tim Conway!
Seven Random Facts About Me, Justin: 1. I share a birthday with Matt Groening, Chris Farley, Susan B. Anthony, Harvey Korman, Cesar Romero, Alex Borstein, and Gary Clark, Jr. 2. As of this I have 13,961 items in my music library on iTunes. 3. I've never had an actual significant other. 4. I have no idea what I'm going to do once I get my masters degree. 5. I think I look more handsome without dreadlocks. 6. I like dancing. If I did it more often I'd probably be a lot slimmer. 7. I'm kinda obsessed with puppetry and am often practicing my lip syncing technique. Like and I'll give you a number for random facts for you to post about yourself...maybe.
He and Harvey Korman cracked me up as a kid watching Carol Burnett or with Don Knott's in Apple Dumpling Gang movies
And in the words of Harvey Korman: "That's Hedley..." One must respect this kind of talent.
Yeah she was upset about Harvey Korman's character being named after her. The math thing was a joke?
What an incredibly intelligent and beautiful woman she was! Happy Birthday Hedy Lamarr!!! It's funny, every time I hear her name, I always think of Mel Brooks iconic movie "Blazing Saddles". Harvey Korman played a corrupt politician named "Hedley Lamarr" and throughout the entire movie, he was constantly referred to as "Hedy Lamarr" irritating him to no end. If you haven't yet sen this movie, you should watch it soon. It turned the page in film making in so many ways, not to mention, you will split a gut from laughing so hard! Governor William J. Le Petomane: Thank you, Hedy, thank you Hedley Lamarr: It's not *Hedy*, it's *Hedley*. Hedley Lamarr. Governor William J. Le Petomane: What the *** are you worried about? This is 1874. You'll be able to sue *her*.
So why am I thinking of Harvey Korman saying "Hedley!"
According to Harvey Korman it was hedly lamarr. Just sayin.
and she inspired the name for Harvey Korman in Blazing Saddles!
This is a picture of my favorite Trumpet Player after his show at the Circle Star Theater in San Carlos, CA back in 1973 the great "Doc Severinsen" Band Leader of the "Johnny Carson" Tonight Show and me at age 15 years old. I was a Trumpet fanatic in High School and wanted to be a Big Band Trumpet Player. I use to see all the great Trumpet players live when they were in the Bay Area and I still like playing the Trumpet and playing the Classic songs. I have seen Doc Severinsen play live about 5 times in the past and enjoyed every minute of it. One time I seen him on the Tonight show with Johnny Carson, Ed McMahon and Harvey Korman as a guest. I always liked meeting my musical Idols and hope by meeting them some of their magic or talent would rub off on me. It was always a thrill every time I met someone great on their instrument.
"Too Jewish." Hedy--that's *Hedley* Lamarr (Harvey Korman) to railroad foreman Taggert (Slim Pickens) on why they can't kill the first-born male child of everyone in Rock Ridge. Blazing Saddles; Mel Brooks, 1974.
Yes. Two of the most funniest ever, Carol Burnett and Harvey Korman. Also add Tim Conway.
Well, I'm about to go to the dentist for my bi-annual checkup. Just a cleaning, hopefully, and hopefully my experience won't be anything like what Harvey Korman went through with Tim Conway in this sketch from "The Carol Burnett Show."
I strive to reach the dreams of my youth... For decades, one of the biggest dreams I had was to be as funny as Mel Brooks for 5 minute increments, two times a month... As of yet, I am constantly reminded by others that I fail at this task... Still, I dream... I think, therefore I kvetch... I kvetch, therefore the bris of '66 worked for something... & now, some haiku: Torquemada said Everybody jump queen Why am I in drag Fabulous knockers I'm Garr'd for life now, thank you I be not normal Springtime for Hitler The fall of Semite-antics Bang-croft graduate Navin R.

I miss Harvey Korman... I miss Johnathan Winters... I miss Richard Pryor... I miss Lenny Bruce... I'm going to be sad when I miss Mel Brooks... ¶€
Love Carol as Nora Desmond. And Harvey Korman. She had such a great cast on her show & guests.
Carol Burnett Wins Mark Twain Award! - Not a bit distracted by a naked Tim Conway running around the stage being pursued by ushers, Carol Burnett was honored recently by receiving the Mark Twain Award for 50 years of comedy. Tim could break up Harvey Korman every time but he wasn't so...
Here it is finally, the classic 1969 Carol Burnett Show skit "The Dentist" with Tim Conway and Harvey Korman, this is my Dad's favorite, when did Harvey Korman NOT crack up laughing??
We watched 'The Doctors' recorded earlier this week, they had Vicki Lawrence on as her character "Mama" & then as herself...I have not laughed that much in a long time...the show deals with medical issues, & there is humor, but this was just 'what the doctor ordered'...excuse the pun.I loved it...she said she learned from the best...had worked with Carol Burnett, Tim Conway, Harvey Korman (sp?).
Sitting here watching an infomercial for "Carol's Crackups" - starring Carol Burnette, Harvey Korman, Tim Conway, Vicki Lawrence, and many, many guests. Its basically all bloopers of the show/or of the cast just flat out laughing at themselves while performing. OMG - its a riot.
Watching Blazing Saddles is bittersweet. I miss Madeline Kahn and Cleavon Little and Harvey Korman. I miss Gene Wilder on the screen. There are no more geniuses like this.
Jonathan Winters Robin Williams red Skelton Carol Burnett, Harvey Korman and Tim Conway just for laughs
He's funny, but for my money... Tim Conway and Harvey Korman have made magical moments on the Carol Burnett Show
That plan didn't work out too well for Harvey Korman! Just sayin'! ;)
Tim Conway and Harvey Korman were awesome together
The Carol Burnett Show began on CBS in 1967 with Lyle Waggoner, Harvey Korman, Vicki Lawrence. Jim Nabors was the first guest.
Settled on Woodford Reserve and Hardcore Pawn. Similar to Harvey Korman & Tim Conway, it just works.
lol she is 16 yrs younger than carol and Tim Conway 21 years younger than the late Harvey Korman
Chuckles was 30th? Also, the Tim Conway-Harvey Korman dentist skit from Carol Burnett Show must be included...
Harvey Korman is hilarious as Dr Jack Seward. The scene at the breakfast table as Renfield eats bugs is hilarious.
“People who become comedians… come from pain, come from conflict.”—Harvey Korman (from the Carol Burnett Show)
Dear any bored editor. Please cut Harvey Korman into Pulp Fiction in the the Harvey Keitel role. Pretty please. With sugar on top.
About to shut it down for the night with 4,091 followers. If I'm not mistaken, that's about the combined age of Tim Conway and Harvey Korman
Tim Conway/Harvey Korman interrogation sketch. Maybe it was our mood but we're thinking 1 of funniest sketches ever.
I wish they'd do a revisited Carol Burnett Show. Old skits/new players.as Carol, Will Ferrell as Harvey Korman.
Glad to know I'm not the only one who mourns long dead comedians. I felt real sad the other week remembering Harvey Korman.
Following up on NEW GODS '78 idea: Harvey Korman as Kanto and Tim Conway as Vermin Vundabar.
You and Ryan are the Tim Conway and Harvey Korman of the 21st Century.
You an me both, sister. It was Rosemary Clooney and Perez Prado version. But I can never NOT think of Harvey Korman. :-)
how about my Tim Conway to your Harvey Korman?
Carol Burnett, Harvey Korman, and Tim Conway are awesome comedians. I kinda wish I could watch more of their old shows.
"It's pronounced DahnGr!! Don Gurr!!" --Harvey Korman in the Weiner biopic of my dreams.
.Dude's like Harvey Korman taking a leak on the *** Boy's shoe in History of the World.
Haven't seen anything so hilarious since the days of Tim Conway and Harvey Korman!
"If you want to be Carol, I want to be your Harvey Korman." - a private message Piers Rae sent me, making things weird.
Baseball on the radio: dozed off when they were talking Harvey Korman in the 2nd, awoke to an in-depth history of horseradish in the 6th.
Oh my God it totally makes sense why Harvey Korman voiced the Dictabird in The Flintstones, it was a send up to The Great Gazoo!
DH making a drink with Dubonnet Rouge. I'm in here doing my best Harvey Korman impression: Dubon-NAY! DU-BON-NAY!!
Tim Conway & Harvey Korman, eternally trying to keep from laughing.
I have feeling for Harvey Korman. Necrotic ones.
I miss Harvey Korman. He was like Ukraine's answer to David Niven
I really was waiting for Matt lose it on this one, ala Harvey Korman with Tim Conway on The Carol Burnette Show.

The Old Doctor - Tim Conway and Harvey Korman: via . If laughter is the best medicine, we are all HEALTHY!!!
Now this is comedy my friends. The amazing Carol Burnett and Harvey Korman!!!
The boys and I are watching Blazing Saddles (it's their first time). I had to explain who Randolph Scott was, but not Hedley Lamarr, or Howard Johnson, or Candygrams. Even Sheryl Love, who finds almost nothing funny in a typical Mel Brooks film, made sure she caught every second of Lili Von Schtupp. Darth did ask if Harvey Korman managed to win Best Supporting Actor. I had to tell him it was DeNiro in II, and that Madeline Kahn got the only acting nomination.
Harvey Korman and Buddy Hackett played Abbott and Costello in a made-for-TV biopic.
Apparently Harvey Korman lost his no-hitter when Lyle Waggoner got an infield hit. Tim Conway is warming up in the bullpen.
Too funny!! "...in the Deep South, women learn at a young age that when the world is falling apart around you, it's time to take down the drapes and make a new dress."
Harvey Korman not being able to keep a straight face makes it even funnier.
This is, without a doubt, one of the funniest Dentist skits of all time! Tim Conway and Harvey Korman on the...
ARGH! THIS IS WRONG IN SEVERAL WAYS! I'm all for giving credit where it's due, especially to women whose contributions have been forgotten; but it does them no good to get it wrong. First, Ada Lovelace has a fair but not perfect claim to being the first PROGRAMMER, as the is the first person to write a program down for Charles Babbage's Analytical Engine. HE invented the engine itself. However, you could also claim that Babbage is the first programmer, since he obviously designed the machine to be programmable, or their collaborator Luigi Menabrea (Lovelace debugged one of his programs). Second, Hedy Lamarr did NOT inventing Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and GPS. She invented frequency-hopping, a system of changing frequencies that made it harder for an enemy to jam a radio-guided torpedo. This technology proved to be useful in other things, but saying she invented Wi-Fi is like saying Edison invented videotape because he developed a practical system for making and showing movies. Third, the Top Secret Rosies were no ...
My fav part of live shows: when Actors crack up e.g. Harvey Korman A lot of ppl would agree :)
Chuck Schumer looks a lot to me like Harvey Korman. It's a terrible thing to compare a brilliant man with a political hack.
I have lost the ability to tell jokes; I will die out laughing right in the middle of the punchline. I think I'm being haunted by the ghost of Harvey Korman.
Walking to my gate at Atlanta's Hartsfield-Jackson International airport I was struck by the question... Which Jackson? Andrew? Stonewall? Reggie? Action?? Kate? Phil? And who the *** is this Hartsfield fellow for that matter? And why am I asking you? Said in my best Harvey Korman "Hedley Lamarr" voice.
The interaction between Harvey Korman and Tim Conway was always my favorite.
In a few minutes, I'll be wathing my favorite show. All Star Special this week with Harvey Korman, McLean Stevenson, Dennis Fry, and Ed Begley Jr. I love this show because I sometimes get the answers to the puzzles from one clue.
Tim Conway still cracks me up. He was known for making this stuff up as he went along. Put him with Harvey Korman and no one could keep a straight face.
Watched Mel Brooks AFI induction last night and laughed my a** off.. wow lot's of great movies and he is still hilarious. On the downside - so many of the actors in his movies have died and they were great.. Harvey Korman, Madeline Kahn, Cleavon Little, Alex Karras.. and the rest are (forgive me ) old. but those movies were great and make me laugh every time... congrats to Mel Brooks.
I am unsure skittish if this is true Hedy Lamarr invented blue tooth? Is there a time warp that worm hole she slid into? I am a man who has punch violently calculators. I am not an authority on this subject.
4 of my favorite people in the world: Carol Burnett, Tim Conway, Vicki Lawrence, and the late Harvey Korman.
A few more random thoughts. Why do I have to tune in an "oldies" station to hear songs that I know the words to? What dd I do in my past life to deserve high school years full of disco? When did I become the person that says "Quiet! My program is on"?I've actually said "what's wrong with kids these days?" I want to shoot myself. I've embarassed my children by trying to be "cool". I save twist ties and rubber bands because "I might need them" for God knows what. I'm pretty sure that my smartphone and smart tv are laughing together behind my back. Besides, the 3D feature makes me dizzy. I'm afraid to go to a museum because it might be filled with things from my childhood. I miss birthday cakes with money inside, pin the tail on the donkey and roller skates you clipped onto your shoes. Do kids still copy the comics by pressing silly-putty on it? I miss that one kid in class that would eat paste. I want to go to a drive-in with my parents in my pajamas and see the dancing soda and hot-dog and I miss safe Hall ...
Hedley Lamarr: My mind is aglow with whirling, transient nodes of thought careening through a cosmic vapor of invention. Taggart: Ditto. Hedley Lamarr: "Ditto?" "Ditto," you provincial putz?

Hedy in Ecstasy, pre code film, coupled with a Blazing Saddles reference, Harvey Korman as Hedley Lamarr.
Easy trivia: In "Blazing Saddles," what was the name of the Attorney General, who played him, and who was he confused with?
People are posting that Nelson Mandela passed away although none of the US Papers or news sites have it on their web sites?
RIP Nelson Mandela.who with grace and dignity,changed the world..
"My mind is a raging torrent, flooded with rivulets of thought cascading into a waterfall of creative alternatives." -Hedley Lamarr
Loved it! My parents would watch this all the time and we all would just laugh, especially the parts with Tim Conway and Harvey Korman.
Just finished watching Blazing Saddles! Classic slapstick..Cleavon Little, Gene Wilder,Harvey Korman, Alex Karras,and Mel Brooks.The joint came out in 74...and it never gets OLD..The whole time I wondered what if Richard Pryor came through and played the Sheriff? We can only dream... Goodnight family
I can't believe no one remembers who harvey korman is :(
Boba Fett's scenes are all cribbed from the Holiday Special. It was Harvey Korman under all that armour.
At Brandon n Lydias wedding. What do you think? Cute future couple? Or Bonnie n Clyde?

Let's try this again... Today is my friends Jim Nabors birthday, he would be 113 if he was born on June 12, 1900 but he was not. Happy birthday Jim.
I was especially excited to see Peninsula Players' selection of 'Saloon' as it first offering of the 2013 season. I have not seen it yet, but being a regular of the Players' productions, I have little doubt that it will be well received.
"Somebody's gotta go back and get a $hitload of dimes!"
wife insists US Soccer midfielder Michael Bradley looks like "The Great Gazoo" from The Flintstones (US playing fantastic soccer at the moment)
It’s surprisingly one of his lesser-known ones, but it’s got Madeline Kahn, Gene Wilder, Harvey Korman, Bea Arthur…SO good.
The Braves are playing the Padres and every time they mention Chase Headley, I hear Harvey Korman in my head.
Uh oh. Looks like ill be spending my evening with Cleevon Little, Gene Wilder, Madeline Kahn, Harvey Korman, and Slim Pickens. OK!!!
Harvey Korman will always go down in the books as one of my favorite actors.
While I enjoy all of Mel Brooks' comedies, I think "Dracula - Dead and Loving It" had the best lineup of all of them. Mel Brooks, Steven Weber, Harvey Korman, Peter MacNicol, Leslie Nielsen, Amy Yasbeck, Megan Cavanagh, and other known character actors.
cannot keep it together around Molly; he is like Harvey Korman and she is a tiny Tim Conway.
just something I saw in the window . . . . LMAO Moment !
oh, that is called I guess Saturday night. Carol wants to go to the neighbor's party so badly and Harvey misses the door.
Tim Conway and Harvey Korman...Just great stuff...Whatever happened to truly funny people?
Another interesting pair, who are they?
Where the heck is Rodman when we REALLY need him?!
If you could ask Darren Burrows (Ed Chigliak) any question about his time on Northern Exposure, what would that question be?
I saw in the window and I just had to have it...
Love me some Harvey Korman...baby come back. RIP.
I'm thinking.."Dudley Do-Right" should've been made in the 70s! With Gene Wilder, Madeline Kahn, Harvey Korman, directed by Mel Brooks!
Okay...blind date saga part two...never heard from him after the date so figured "oh well". Got a text from him today asking how I am and suggesting we talk on the phone. I explained I was on my way somewhere and couldn't . he mentioned he would be home all day. Not sure how I feel about this situation. I got the feeling he had another date after ours that evening and that didn't bother me. But waiting a month to contact me... Discuss...
We're talking around the family dinner table talking about life. My dad bring out this snazzy line "It's not the blowing of the wind but the set of the sail that determines your course" . Thank you Harvey Korman
Never missed the Carol Burnett Show.love it
What a great, funny show- Carol Burnett & the cast of Harvey Korman, Tim, et al were so talented!
last night I dreamed I was reading poetry at Mount Sinai Hospital for Carol Burnett and although she was sick in my dream she got up off her bed to upstage me. Wow... -True Story
Outside the loop attitude is so different to me. Do people even notice other people on the roads out there?
With all the permutations of 'The Walking Dead', 'The Last of Us' getting 10s all over the place, and the soon to released 'World War Z' movie, it appears we are at the apex of Zombies in pop culture. Vampires are on the way out. So, what's the next supernatural creature craze? I don't know, but I'd vote for the Golem. I can see the teen romance version now... She's the angsty lower middle class outcast recently forced to move into the upper middle class high school. He's an exchange student from Prague with dreamy eyes but an odd habit of leaving muddy footprints everywhere… then he 'negs' on her a lot, she almost gets killed because she's basically stalking him, and he sparkles because he's actually made out of Quickrete that was mixed with a ton of glitter (Total retcon).
Youtube again...was searching for something with Tim Conway doing his wonderful "old man" little steps bit from the Carol Burnett Show and came across this outtake.omg.once it was done, it was done.hilarious!

Saying goodbye to another icon, Esther Williams dies at the age of 91.
Am I the only one who upon hearing, "So-and-so died today," keeps responding with, "I thought they already died?"
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Esther Williams, the swimming champion turned actress who starred in glittering and aquatic Technicolor musicals of the 1940s and 1950s, has died. She was 91.
One of the great TV shows of all time.
If you were a Movie director and you were going to film a remake of Mel Brooks "Blazing Saddles", who would your top choices be for actors to take the places of Gene Wilder, Cleavon Little, Harvey Korman, Slim Picknens and Alex Karras (Mongo)? I could only come up with Cuba Gooding Jr. for Cleavon Little and "The Rock" (Dwayne Johnson) for Mongo.
This is one of my all time favorite moments from the show. I still die laughing every time I see it.
Blazing Saddles is on. Gotta love Mel Brooks' humor. Opening scenes: Harvey Korman: "there may be a legal precedent for land snatching (grabs a legal book looks up land). "Land,land.see *** " Cut to scene with Madeline Kahn.Guffaws already...
Mel Brooks has directed more than twenty films, yet he is known primarily for only three of them: The Producers, Blazing Saddles, and Young Frankenstein. People should remember a fourth Brooks film, High Anxiety. High Anxiety stars Brooks as a psychiatrist preparing to take a new job running a sanitarium. Brooks manages to create some wonderfully funny parodies of several Hitchcock films (including Psycho, Vertigo, Spellbound, and North By Northwest), as well as Antonioni's Blow Up. Many of the sequences are beautifully funny, catching the feel of the source material perfectly. The cast is extraordinary. It features many of Brooks' favorite actors including Harvey Korman in a twisted, and sexually bizzare role, Madeline Kahn as the leading lady, and Cloris Leachman in a creepy Nurse Ratched role. Some parts of High Anxiety are a bit slow, and as with all of Brook's films the majority of the gags fall flat; but they keep coming so quickly that you barely notice all the unfunny bits and focus on the funny o ...
"'Scuse me while I whip this out." Time for my annual pilgrimage to Rock Ridge. :)
Those who do things in a noble spirit of self-sacrifice are to be avoided at all costs.
For our dearly departed friends and family. Lisa Contreras and especially Emily Politis-Owens. Our parents, and others Harvey Korman, Jean Stapleton, we miss them all see you up in heaven
Eva Marlowe horse may be related to mr. ed results to be seen on Maury show. Jean Stapleton and Harvey Korman died on the same day, may be buried together due to the lack of social security. Richard Stevens bad bump no aputation in near future, and still riding bike with no performace enhancing drugs. Duane Heitman playing framville poses the question prom dress country or city? NO Duck Dynasty option?? Lane Cooney Roseberry has wet stinky dog, don't stop over. Becky Van Tassel Kirsenlohr making cakes yum. Joyce Donnelly likes Dish, ha ha until the next storm.

RIP to two Hollywood legends: Jean Stapleton from "All in the Family" and Harvey Korman from "The Carol Burnett Show"
Jean Stapleton (All in the Family) and Harvey Korman (The Carol Burnett Show) have both passed away, and Matt Smith is leaving Doctor Who THIS YEAR! OMG! My Time Warner Cable DVR dies while I am finally getting it down below 50% full and then I hear all this... The world has truly gone to *** in a handbasket. Is there any hope left? At least TWC can get someone over on Wednesday night to replace the DVR, but there will be no replacing Jean or Harvey... Of course, Matt Smith will be replaced, but will I watch the new season with the new actor/actress cast in the role of The Doctor? (If it's Russell Tovey, the answer is already a resounding YES!!! Otherwise, we shall see... It may be time for a gender-switch on the Doctor... someone suggested Helen Mirren... Not going to happen, but squee if it did...
I'm utterly fascinated. I've had at least 10 friends post the Harvey Korman obit in the last 24 hours. But Mr. Korman died in 2008. How is this popping up again with such assured immediacy?
On the cusp of 50, my generations influencers pass on. The brief moments i connected with them via the media helped create a bit of who I am. One gauges societal changes, norms and ideals through the world of popular culture. Comedic timing from Harvey Korman's, music appreciation from Ray Manzarek, self psycho-analysis from fellow Jersian Dr Joyce Brothers and the political insight slyly brought about by Jean Stapleton's Edith Bunker. Add that to the 4" of snow I got on Labor Day weekend - and not only are we not on Kansas anymore - we are not longer in a world where modesty, introspection and global commitment means anything more than a logo that was bought and paid for. Time to see the world for what it is and what it can be - not what others demand it becomes or complains what it has become. The best is yet to come. When you awake alive in the morning, be thankful for it. Py it Forward. Your Innermost Self is always happy. Follow it. No matter how you feel, get up, dress up and show up. Stay engaged . ...
Harvey Korman may not have passed today, but Jean Stapleton of All in the Family did. She was a great actress.
Oh l a w d y !!! I just posted that Harvey Korman died and it was supposed to be Jean Stapleton (Edith Bunker) !!! Well, Rest in Peace Edith! We all loved you too! BTW, Harvey Korman died in 08! :P
Harvey Korman of ‘Carol Burnett Show’ dies The Associated Press updated 5/29/2008 8:22:04 PM ET LOS ANGELES — Harvey Korman, the tall, versatile comedian who won four Emmys for his outrageously funny contributions to “The Carol Burnett Show” and played a conniving politician to hilarious effect in “Blazing Saddles,” died Thursday. He was 81. Korman died at UCLA Medical Center after suffering complications from the rupture of an abdominal aortic aneurysm four months ago, his family said. He had undergone several major operations. “He was a brilliant comedian and a brilliant father,” daughter Kate Korman said in a telephone interview with The Associated Press. “He had a very good sense of humor in real life. “ Second banana A natural second banana, Korman gained attention on “The Danny Kaye Show,” appearing in skits with the star. He joined the show in its second season in 1964 and continued until it was canceled in 1967. That same year he became a cast member in the first season o ...
Harvey Korman passed away yesterday. If you grew up watching The Carol Burnett Show, you'll love this! Harvey and Tim Conway.two of the best in the business.
Harvey Korman (Count de Money) , Andrea Voutsinas (Bearnaise) and Mel Brooks (The King) in what I consider to be Brooks' funniest film after "Blazing Saddles...
Comic actor Harvey Korman has died at 81, according to the UCLA Medical Center.
Can someone please explain this new trend of dredging up obituaries from years back and re-posting them??? Today it was Harvey Korman (who passed away FIVE years ago). A couple weeks ago... Lena Horne... Who died in 2010. What especially amuses me is that some folks are posting links to CNN obituaries that are DATED! All it takes is clicking on the link and reading it to see this. Here's hoping I don't read about the passing of Marilyn Monroe next week...
Harvey Korman left the world a little less funny five years ago. Here are his five funniest roles.
TODAY hosts take a look back at the life of comic Harvey Korman, a regular on "The Carol Burnett Show" who passed away earlier today at the age of 81. Visit NBCNews.com for breaking news, world news, and news about the economy
First it was Bettie Page; now I'm seeing a bunch of posts that Harvey Korman has passed away. Like Bettie, he did so in 2008. Don't know what the deal is.
Thanks for all the laughs Hedy...I mean Hedley Lamarr ! “A world without Harvey Korman — it’s a more serious world,”
Perhaps the posting of reports of Harvey Korman's demise are part of an experiment to see who will repeat what they hear from trusted sources without due diligence. In this instance I plead guilty-as-charged. (In case you missed the "joke," it turns out that Harvey's been dead for five years now.)
Today is the anniversary of the death of John Barrymore, May Whitty, Romy Schneider, Harvey Korman, Dennis Hopper and Franca Rame.
This show is being STOLEN by a show called Drake & Josh Nickelodeon, they do the same bit dead on balls IDENTICAL. trk387
Tim Conway + Harvey Korman should make for a great film!
just look at Harvey Korman on the CBurnett show.
Oh, Hello High Anxiety. I needed to get some homework done, but I've always got time for a Mel Brooks film I haven't seen yet. Especially with The Man and Harvey Korman.
The bit when Harvey Korman shoots the guy in the neck with the elastic band and keeps putting the werewolf teeth in in genius!!
= IN THE WORDS OF 'SPOCK' ... FASCINATING Last week, I was doing some research on "Frequency Hopping" for a Project I have been working on. I was startled to come across the name "Hedy Lamarr. From Wikipedia - Hedy Lamarr (9 November 1913 – 19 January 2000) was an Austro-American actress and MATHEMATICIAN, celebrated for her great beauty, who was a major contract star of MGM's "Golden Age." She holds a Patent on a method of transmitting radio signals by rapidly switching a carrier among many frequency channels! See her in this video, @ 2:30- 2:38 =
I like having my name as Matt Harvey. It makes me feel special 😌
A9. Blazing Saddles. Hitler goose stepping on the table at the back & Harvey Korman trying to hide in the toilet - pure class!
Someone just handed me a paddle ball. I felt like I was in that scene in Blazing Saddles...except I was Mel Brooks, not Harvey Korman.
I will freely say that Harvey Korman was one of the funniest and greatest comics to ever perform on stage and screen.
Carol Burnett has won the Mark Twain Humor award. Here's one of her sidekicks, Harvey Korman, in Blazing Closers:
Harvey Korman: great on Carol Burnett & in Blazing Saddles. Here he takes on problems in Blazing Closers:
I've decided the funniest thing I ever saw on television was Harvey Korman trying NOT to laugh at Tim Conway.
Hey everyone. Good possible tv show alert. Sun eve on hbo mike Douglas plays Liberace in a saucey docudrama with mat Damon as his lover.
When people say that, what I hear in my head is Harvey Korman in Blazing Saddles.
"Blazing Saddles" coming on now on AMC. One of funniest western spoofs ever lmao
Amen to that. That whole crew was hilarious; Harvey Korman; Tim Conway; Vicki Lawrence. Thats when TV was good.
“I was very flattered and pleased ... and it’s a great show that they put on, too,” Carol Burnett says of being newly named as this year’s recipient of the Mark Twain Prize for American Humor.
I guess when Jerry Lewis appeared on the Carol Burnett Show, it was because he liked Tim Conway and Harvey Korman.
Tim Conway, Harvey Korman & Vicki Lawrence should get mini trophies // Carol Burnett Wins Mark Twain Prize for Humor
I apologize for the low quality format, good stuff nevertheless!
The 'Carol Burnett Show' star will receive the award at a celebratory gala on October 20.
Watched a special on PBS on Mel Brooks last night. They showed a clip from the movie, "High Anxiety." Harvey Korman plays the head of a psychiatric hospital; Mel asks him, 'Can you tell me your success ratio?" (In a bad accent) Harvy says,"Yes, I can figure that." (Gets out a calculator, and computes furiously, then looks at Mel, and gives him the answer . . .) "Once in a blue moon."
Thank you - Big Mel Brooks & Harvey Korman fan-plus it fits nicely w my business LOL
So I'm watching, the American Masters Mel Brooks program, and enjoying it tremendously, and then there's Madeline Kahn being interviewed, and suddenly I'm all sad. Am I ever going to get over her death? So many horrible people live on and on, and often in Congress, but she's gone. It's just not right. Funniest line so far? Barry Levinson: "Mel is EXTREMELY verbal." No kidding? Mel Brooks extremely verbal? Are you sure? Do you have two sources for that statement? Saying Mel Brooks is extremely verbal is like saying the sun is very bright.
Will we ever again have comedic actors like Harvey Korman, Gene Wilder, Mel Brooks, Madeline Khan, Dom DeLuise and Cloris Leachman?
Tim Conway Jr. is the funniest guy ever. He says exactly what I'm thinking.
"'You are born,you suffer,you die''. Harvey Korman ;;;R.i.p.
Bea Arthur singing to and dancing with drunk aliens, Harvey Korman as an intergalactic cooking show host, Art Carney as a space trader and 75% of the dialogue is unintelligable grunts and growls. This is the debacle known as 1978's "Star Wars Holiday Special". I recently had the opportunity to watch this mess again and realized why I had blocked it out in the first place.
i have been reading some interviews with famous Chef's, one of the questions is always--if you could have dinner with 5 people dead or alive, who would they be-i think mine would be-Marilyn Monroe, Gianni Versace, Coco Chanel, *** Jagger, and Sofia Loren..
In honor of YouTube celebrating "Comedy Week", I'm showing one of my favorite sketches from one of my favorite shows as a kid: "The Carol Burnett Show" with Harvey Korman and guest Carl Reiner.
I love when they fight cracking up during a sketch on SNL.
funny how Tim Conway tried (and succeeded) every time to make Harvey Korman laugh.
Misscribe. 1. To describe inaccurately. Ex. Blue is an earth tone. Ex. Robert DeNiro's performance as the lead in Taxi Driver is exceptional, but Harvey Korman's, in a supporting role as the pimp, is even better.
I wish I could have all episodes o the following shows: I love lucy..I dream of jeannie..bewitched,Dean Martin Roasts, good times, jeffersons,all in the family, lost in space, the honeymooners, the munsters, green acres, mr ed, the addams family.missin the old days :(
"Blazing Saddles" is over. How great was Harvey Korman?
in ref to Sarrah Pelin's comments of the umbrella issue at the white house, I can only recall the famous words of the late great Harvey Korman: you Teutonic ***
Bet you didn't know this about Heady Lamarr:
OMG, one of the funniest skits ever! Love them on Carol Burnett!
When you are really stressed out about something, who do you turn to?
Here's something I've always wondered: What is wrong with laughing at your own jokes? I love hearing other people laugh, whether it's at their own joke or mine, so I honestly don't get why this is apparently a douchey thing to do.
My wonderful husband surprised me last night by taking me to see Carol Burnett at the Wharton!!! Brings back wonderful memories of laughing with my parents while watching Tim Conway try to make Harvey Korman break character. Who could forget the curtain rod dress or the dentist scene!!! Thank you for a wonderful night. Lou, you are the best. I am still amazed that you were able to keep a secret since January. Are you the same man who can't keep a Christmas present till Christmas?
Went to see Carol Burnett at the Wharton Center last nigh with Pete. Sat in the second row center. So close I had to take me glasses off. Dang she looks good at 80 and is still just as humorous. I feel like make the Tarzan yell all today...
Just saw Blazing Saddles on the big screen and all I can say is: Cleavon Little was HOT . . . And Gene Wilder needs to read me bedtime stories. . . And Madeline Kahn is a genius, same with Harvey Korman and Mel Brooks and the little old lady. . .
(November 26, 2001) consisted mostly of bloopers and outtakes from the series. The program was a major ratings success.
I wish people realized that Blazing Saddles is NOT RHPS. Seriously, when the movie is going, DON'T RUN THE LINES! Sheesh!
saw "Blazing Saddles" for the first time with a swell bunch of folks. Definitely a good laugh, and a sad reminder of how much fantastic talent has been lost to the years.
Oh my gosh. I didn't realize that Tim Conway was the voice of Barnacle Boy!
Yes love this one. His hand goes numb and he flops it onto a fly to kill it. Sooo funny
Tim Conway and Harvey Korman were so good in their sketches!
2086: The family gathers to view the reading of my will but it's just a video montage of Tim Conway cracking up Harvey Korman.
Vicki Lawrence as "Momma" on Momma's Family...funny show with Harvey Korman and Carol Burnett...great humor...timeless
For those of you that thought I was on Mike and Molly last night, I wasn't. It was my stand-in that I've been working with for 20yrs. He gets more work than I do know a days.
