Harvey Korman, RIP
Used to love this guy. Awesome on the Burnett show, and in Blazing Saddles.

I'm with you, Jason.
What a damned shame. Harvey was a one-of-a-kind comedian, and was brilliantly quick on his feet, too. Some of the ad libs on the Carol Burnett show were funnier than anything written.
What a trio that was ... Harvey Korman, Tim Conway and Carol Burnett.

I was just watching some of an infommercial for the Carol Burnett Show on dvd.
I remember watching that show every week when I was a kid.
So long, brother. You were an incredibly funny cat.

Plus ša change...
He was a funny guy.

Harvey was great. He played a perfect comedy heavy.

I always loved how he and Conway cracking up at each other was even funnier than the actual skit they were trying to perform, as Ron somewhat stated above.

I'm the face.
For me, the saddest celebrity loss of the year. God, how I loved watching him crack up.
RIP and thanks for all the yuks.

The moldiest of all figs
We hardly ever missed the Carol Burnett Show. It was a true classic.
Harvey and Tim topped themselves every week.
Damn, we've lost two very funny men this week.
I am envisioning Hedley Lamarr getting a pie in the face as he tries to sneak out of the Commissary rest room.
Thank you, Harvey.
Bright moments - right now!

We are the only reality
Loved him. We had two channels when I was a kid and I never missed The Carol Burnette Show.
My favourite movie spoof was the one based on Sunset Boulevard.
RIP Harvey. You made me laugh and I love a man who can do that.

I loved Harvey as a kid like a favorite uncle. He seemed like the coolest most gregarious guy. I also loved how he would bust up in his skits. Rest in peace to the man who brought a lot of much needed laughter into the world.
