    Maybe some of the younger folks on here don't remember him, but he was a comic genius who could do improv with the best of them.
    Two favorite skits from the Carol Burnett Show featuring Tim (and Carol, and Harvey Korman, and Vicki Lawrence):
    The Dentist:

    Google Dorf on Golf. One of the best at the time.

    Oh, no. He was one of the very few who mastered self-deprecating humor. He was a riot. I'll miss his outlook.

    "Dorf on Golf" was such an outlandish concept, but Conway made it work.

    Guy was hilarious, and some of the funnest stuff to watch was seeing the other cast members of the Carol Burnett show try not to crack up while he was doing his thing.

    So glad we had those guys as part of our television lineup as kids. I reference the old man shuffle and dorf many times. He was probably my Mom's favorite and now she gets to hang with him...

    He was one of my dad's favorites and one of the fist comedians I came to appreciate. The guy was just funny. He had 'it'.

    On top of his work on various shows and skits, his interviews on Carson and Letterman were always fun to watch.

    My first recollection of Tim Conway was on McHale's Navy as clueless Ensign Parker

    I had forgotten that he was in the very first movie I ever saw in an actual movie theater: The Apple Dumpling Gang.

    Saturday nights - watching "The Carol Burnett" show at home with my parents. Not my most exciting grade school memory but still a nice one. I think the hardest my dad ever laughed was when Tim Conway and Harvey Corman wouldn't be able to contain their own laughter during a live skit.

    Growing up my Mom was a big fan of the Carol Burnett show. I will never forget the sketch of him being poked by a pitchfork from a picture hanging on the wall. Hilarious.

    RIP Tim.

    Conway said Korman pee'd his pants, during the dentist sketch he laughed so hard.
    I guess then never really rehearsed those things, so Korman had no idea what to expect
