Comedian Tim Conway of The Carol Burnett Show Has Died
We're sad to report that we've lost another actor from Hollywood.
Comedian Tim Conway, best known for the Carol Burnette Show died in L.A. today (5/14/19) at the age of 85. He passed after a long illness with his family at his side.
Conway was a co-star on the 1970s variety and sketch comedy program The Carol Burnett Show. According to Wikipedia Conway became a regular after being a frequent guest in the show's first eight seasons. His work on the show earned him four Emmy Awards: one for writing and three for performance, one of which was before he became a regular. Our favorite characters on the Burnett Show were:
The Oldest Man, whose shaggy white hair, slow speech, and shuffling gait ran counter to the much-needed energy levels of the various occupations in which he was usually found.
Mr. Tudball, a businessman whose intentions of running a 'ship-shape' office were usually sunk by the bored indifference of his secretary, Mrs. Wiggins (Burnett).
