    The comedian who made the whole world laugh for years. I think we will miss that clean comedy it is hard to find. Maybe you can give your best performance in heaven.

    If this link works, it is a good interview with Tim Conway from 2007

    I have never heard of him before either, Patsy, except I think that the name sounds familiar. I think that the one I remember was Pat Conway, and he played in westerns (way back when). Looks like he is dead, too.

    He was in many shows and the other actors could not stay in caricature they all started laughing. He was on of the best in comedy.

    Yvonne--surely you saw The Carol Burnett Show back in the day? He was a big part of that show, along with Harvey Korman and Vicky Lawrence.

    No, I seldom watch television, and not much when I was a kid either. I remember watching a few of the western programs like Gunsmoke and Have Gun Will Travel.
    Tombstone Territory was my favorite, and I loved the theme song !
