    Tim had one word to say in the script and that was elephant!

    His stuff on Carol Burnett was just killer, I've never laughed my xxx off so much as that! RIP Tim.

    He was an innocent comedian. It came out of his nature and who he was. It wasn't like he was trying to make a BIG COMIC STATEMENT. He just said and did things in a funny way, if that makes sense. It was very natural. There was none of the "Look at me, I'm funny" thing that a lot of modern comedians do. Really sorry to see that he's checked out.

    RIP Tim Conway

    A natural comedian (as Paul in Colorado said) with impeccable timing. RIP

    Thanks Tim for all the joy you brought us with your talent. It's been a hard week, as we also just lost Doris Day and Peggy Lipton. God Bless them all, for making our lives better by sharing theirs with us.

    Thoughts and prayers of course, but...my dumb@ss dog is funnier than Conway. Obviously my family was never their target TV audience, but that whole Carol Burnette and Mama's Family shtick...that sh@t was terrible.

    The clip above was hilarious, I had to stop as I was laughing so hard I started getting tears in my eyes at work.

    I've never really noticed but it was interesting to see that a lot of the funniness comes from Carol trying to not burst out and her then waiting to talk to the others, giving him the opportunity to cut in again at the right time.

    Amazingly talented group of people.

    RIP.

    I don't often react to celebrity death announcements, but this one makes me sad.

    Agree 100%. Very poor form to do that.
