Tim Conway - Comedic genius is gone

Thu May 16, 2019 12:21 am

I'm 52 and the man ripped me apart in laughter when I was a kid. I soooo hope that clips of him are appreciated in the next generation(s). Haven't been this bummed about a celebrity passing since Robin Williams.

I know Tim has missed Harvey Corman, but he's got a lot of material to get back at him with. Back in the day, it was his "mission" to "destroy" Harvey, and it was so wonderfully hilarious when he did.

Everyone, if you need an escape, just search Tim Conway on youtube. You will not be disappointed.

Rest in peace Mr. Conway, but I doubt you will. You'll be way to busy cracking up the heavens. You will be missed here on terra firma.
Just when I think you've said the stupidest thing ever, you keep talkin'!

The elephant story is forever a classic. There is a group compiling interviews by classic media stars. They interviewed Vicki Lawrence about the elephant story. The whole thing is classic.

I wonder what Spongebob will do as a tribute. I don't know if I could watch that.....
You bet I'm pumped!!! I just had a green tea!!!

I used to watch the Dorf shows. Those were comedy gold.

The man truly was a comic genius. How he tried to break Harvey Corman on all skits they were a part of is legendary. I miss that kind of comedy.

They'll probably phase out his character instantly (MM and BB retired far away from Bikini Bottom, or something). If there's still a need to have a Batman/Robin duo, they can come up with something. I'm waiting to see a picture of Mermaid Man waiting for Barnacle Boy...in the same manner when Ernest Borgnine (Mermaid Man's voice) died and fans made a tribute to him by having a picture of Barnacle Boy weeping on Mermaid Man's grave.

Really enjoyed watching a professional work his craft, made it look simple.Tim and Harvey were such a perfect match, thank goodness we have those recordings to look back on, that was great entertainment for sure.
you don't get a second chance to make a first impression!

His son Corey plays in my poker room. Such a loss. A huge talent we won't see again.
