Farewell, Harvey Korman
Some of my fondest memories of childhood involve watching the Carol Burnett Show. There has never been anything to match the incredible talents placed on display each week.
Harvey Korman, straight man and comedic foil par excellence, passed away earlier this week. This is in tribute to him.
Besides his brilliant turn in the spoof of Gone With the Wind, Korman was always trying to smother a laugh as Tim Conway freed his inner comedy psycho, an example of which I give you above. If you want more laughs, check out his brilliant turn as Hedley Lamarr in Blazing Saddles.
You made me laugh, Mr. Korman, even when my life was filled with uncertainty and strain. God bless.
