Tim Conway, Comedian and ‘Carol Burnett Show’ Star, Dies at 85
He was one of my favourites.
Ah.... Missus A-Wiggins...
I was always afraid of this. I adore Tim, and was watching Carol the other night. I started wondering when we would hear of the next person to leave us, and I figured it might be Tim who would do so. I don't know why, just a gut feeling, I guess.
Rest in peace, Tim.
Man, I was just going to post that same video. That skit always breaks me up. Can't hardly breathe from laughing.
I had no idea who the title was about, then thought "Oh... That guy.".
"Are you sure that little asshole's through?"
my favorite Tim character was the old, slow moving man on the Carol Burnett show!
This popped up on my FB feed...
He had a license plate which read "13 Weeks" because that's how long a TV series he was the star of lasted. I can't find it now, but there was an interview with him on the show "Fresh Aire" that's worth listening to. I will spoil the funniest part of that interview, but there was far more to him than this story.
When they were filming The Apple Dumpling Gang, Don Knotts got tired of the fact that they had to prep for their scenes out in the middle of nowhere when it was fucking cold. Tim suggested that Don get the makeup artist folks to dole Don up in their hotel room. Don agreed. So, before they left to begin shooting each day, the makeup and costuming folks would be at the door of the hotel room Don and Tim shared. On the day that they shot the sequence what Don was dressed as a "squaw" when they got back to the hotel, Tim decided to have a drink at the bar, while Don decided to go back to the room and strip off all of the shit. Problem was, Tim had the key. So Don wound up at the bar, asking Tim if he could get the key. To which Tim replied, "Don't you think we should discuss price first?"
