Me too - what an expressive face, made for that slapstick comedy. Lots of good laughs.
I used to love when Conway, Harvey Korman, and Carol Burnett

would crack each other up during a skit. Lots of times they would have to pause the skit for a few seconds to get composed.

Easily thrown around these days... but it seems to apply to his comedy.

An incredible talent--

his physical comedy was top-notch and some of his Carol Burnett skits like the one posted above are legendary.
R.I.P. to a fantastic comedic actor

A truly great comedian

Was truly funny without having to rely on filth and shock. One of my favorites was when he went off script on the Carol Burnett show and started rambling about the Siamese Elephants.
RIP to a true comic genius.

He and Harvey Korman were an awesome team.

great comedian. Loved him on the Carol Burnett show. RIP. God bless. Prayers to his family and friends.
Oh no, such a funny, funny man.

I would love it when Conway would ad-lib, and Harvey Korman would struggle to keep from breaking out in laughter. RIP to a very underappreciated comic actor.

crack ... that was a great show when I was growing up.
The Saturday night line-up back then was probably the best night For TV?

IIRC, on the same night was the Bob Newhart show, Mary Tyler Moore show, and Carol Burnett.

There was another good show but, I can't remember it right now.

Being 11 at the time my Saturday nights were kind of tame - so it was a good night for good TV.

RIP Mr. Conway and Thank-you.

He had them all rolling Rob. Usually you might be able to get to 1 guy but, they all lost it.

I remember seeing that sketch much later then the original airing and at the end you can just about hear Vicki Lawrence say ..."Is that little fucker done?"

Just watched it till the end .... again
