Tim Conway Remembered by Carol Burnett, Judd Apatow and More: ‘One in a Million’

The Wrap Tuesday, 14 May 2019
Tim Conway Remembered by Carol Burnett, Judd Apatow and More: ‘One in a Million’Colleagues and former co-stars of Tim Conway came forward to pay tribute the “Carol Burnett Show” and “McHale’s Navy” star following his death on Tuesday at age 85.

“I’m heartbroken,” Burnett said in a statement to CNN. “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.”

“The man was pure comedy. Riotously funny,” writer and producer Judd Apatow tweeted. “I finally got to see him work when he guest starred on The Larry Sanders show and he was all I dreamed he would be. As kind as he was funny. He will be missed.”

The Emmy-winning actor died Tuesday morning in Los Angeles, and his friends and admirers remembered him by sharing clips of his work and their favorite memories of the comedian on social media.

“Tim Conway made me laugh,” Jamie Lee Curtis wrote in a tweet. “A great gift and talent. Carol, my friend, my hand in yours as you miss him.”

One of Conway’s most famous sketches from his time on “The Carol Burnett Show,” a dentist bit he performed with Harvey Korman, resurfaced on Tuesday, as did an old outtake in which Conway made all of his castmates descent into fits of laughter with a story about a circus elephant. Both were held up as examples of Conway’s unparalleled comedic ability.

“Watching Tim Conway destroy his cast mates is pure joy,” Patton Oswalt wrote, sharing the latter clip on Twitter. “Wait until Vicki Lawrence’s a-bomb ad-lib at the end.”

So sad to hear about Tim Conway. "Discovering" Tim and managing him for a time, was a source of tremendous pride for Mother. He was, after all, one of the funniest men on the planet! My heart goes out to his family.https://t.co/1Q7NULVFpY
