For those of us who grew up in the 60’s and 70’s, Tim Conway is a comedy legend. Amy and I continue to watch and love old episodes of “The Carol Burnett Show”, and especially love the ones that Tim appeared in.
It was so funny to see Tim make his fellow actors laugh when they should have been in character during a skit. Harvey Korman could hardly keep a straight face in nearly every scene they were involved in on the iconic Carol Burnett show.
While the character Mr. Tudball was among our favorite characters, it was the “Oldest Man” that topped them all. Watch this short video clip of Tim Conway as the Oldest Man.
Amy and I are saddened by the death of one of our all-time favorites, and our prayers go out to his family, friends, and fans. May Tim Conway’s memory live forever, and what a blessing it is to still be able to watch him performing his craft.

Tim Conway, the Golden Globe Award-winning actor who embodied several comical characters on “The Carol Burnett Show” including the Oldest Man and Mr. Tudball has died at age 85.
Conway died Tuesday morning after a long illness in Los Angeles, according to his rep Howard Bragman. His daughter, Kelly, told Fox News on Tuesday her father is “at peace now.”
“The love he gave us, and the laughter he gave the world will never be replaced, but will be remembered forever,” Kelly told us. “He is at peace now but I will miss him every second of every day until we meet again in heaven.
“We knew he would have to leave us someday, but that day came too soon. When he used to hear the song ‘Angel Flying Too Close to the Ground’ he would say, ‘I want that played at my funeral.'”
Conway’s longtime friend and fellow star Carol Burnett told Fox News, “I’m heartbroken. He was one in a million, not only as a brilliant comedian but as a loving human being. I cherish the times we had together both on the screen and off. He’ll be in my heart forever.
