The Friday Flashback: Remembering Harvey Korman

By Chuck Sudo in Arts & Entertainment on May 30, 2008 1:00PM

Harvey Korman, best known for his work on The Carol Burnett Show, passed away last night. The Chicago native was 81 years old. In addition to the Burnett Show, Korman was also a regular feature in Mel Brooks movies. His skits with Tim Conway usually dovetailed into Korman breaking character whenever Conway started acting up. This predated Horatio Sanz and Jimmy Fallon doing that on SNL by about thirty years, except Conway and Korman could be funny most of the time.

An example of such is their classic dentist sketch, featured today.
