Just heard that this very funny man passed away in Los Angeles at age 85. I had read a while back he was suffering from Alzheimer's. His skits with Harvey Korman were some of the best comedy ever. The two of them in The Dentist still makes me laugh til I cry. That laughter is a wonderful legacy. May he rest in peace, but not too quiet. I hope he makes laughs for all of eternity.

That dentist sketch is one of my favorites too. May he rest in peace.

I always liked him. But have not seen any of his acts for many years. As I remember him, his comedy was clean, not rude and insulting, just good fun. Too bad we don't have more of those. MN

That makes three, Peggy Lipton, Doris Day, now Tim Conway. It's uncanny how famous people die in threes.

I loved watching him as his comedy was both verbal and physical. Some of his skits on the Carol Burnett show made me laugh until I had tears in my eyes. I loved watching Harvey Korman's reactions when he and Tim Conway were doing a sketch together.

Loved the Mr. Tudball sketches! "Msssawiggins" was played by Carol Burnett.

I agree. Not mean, insulting or vulgar. Just soul healing, lung clearing, good old belly laughter! His "old man" was hysterical, too. Maybe they will air a retrospective. That would be good for the country, and show some of our younger folks that great comedy can be clean. Gosh, I loved that show.

He was really funny and kind of silly too. Great combination of talent.
