Harvey always made me laugh. The best part of The Carol burnet show was when he would be doing the skits and crack up at himself. Thats was a great show and I miss it. Rest in Peace harvey!

I always loved to see Harvey crack under the spell of Tim Conway. His roles were always the best. He was great my condolences to his family. At 81 he lived a full life

Harvey Korman, my favorite comedian

I still have 2-3 VHS tapes of Carol Burnett show featuring Harvey Korman & Tim Conway. Those two always tried to crack each others up. I was too young to remember Harvey Korman Show... Besides Johnny Carson, Harvey Korman is one of my favorite comedian. Very funny and cute guy.
