Harvey Korman

For as big a fan of sketch comedy as me, there are few thing better than the Carol Burnett Show. Four brilliant comedians made up a cast that could make anything funny. And, it was clear they had a lot of fun doing it. Harvey Korman, one of those cast members, died today.

Harvey is probably best remembered for being unable to keep a straight face during the antics of Tim Conway. His laughter made the audience laugh even harder.

This was a guy who really understood how to be funny. In tribute, I offer the video below. We can only hope that his passing will motivate more access to these great old shows.
