Comic Relief

I sent this to a few people in an email this morning. But I got to laughing so hard that I had to share it with everyone. I'm not sure what's funnier - Tim Conway's acting or watching Harvey Korman try not to laugh. Enjoy everyone! Be sure to pause the music on my sidebar...

Blessing of the day: I'm blessed because I remember when comedy was clean and families could sit together and watch TV.

Haha, I'm actually laughing out loud! What a great start to my day. If only there was more of this type of good, quality humour out there these days. It's a wonderful family bonding experience to sit down and have a giggle together in front of a good comedy!

Blessings,
Laura

OH I'M in PAIN from laughing so hard!!! Those were the good old days! My hugest idol back then was Carol Burnett. And your comment about the associated press got me too! That was so funny I was glad I didn't have milk in my mouth!

From the Doghouse said...

That was awesome, thanks for posting it!

Have you ever seen Tim Conway's speil on the Siamese elephants? It's my favorite TV moment - ever.

bj said...

The Carol Burnett Show is still one of my all time favorites. Every single one on the show would just send me into hysterics! When Harvey would crack up at Tim during one of their scenes, I would just fall of the sofa, laughing.
This episode was a classic!

We were raised on that Julie!! My Mom is a HUGE fan of Carol Burnett!! We also used to watch Mama's Family too!!
They sure don't make them like that anymore do they?? Good thing we have TVLand reruns!!!

Kari said...

Those two defined comedic GENIUS! I loved watching them and Carol Burnett...remember Tim Conway and "Mrs. Wiggins" or "Mrs. uh-Wiggins", as his character, Mr. Tudball, pronounced it? Gosh, they were all so funny.
Loved this clip...I was sitting here laughing out loud. Good way to start the morning!

Hi! I decided to check out your blog because I read your comments on "Momma says the F word". I'm so happy I did. We used to love the CB show when I was a kid. I remember a recurring bit where Carol was tormented in her house by spokespeople for various products. Nobody else seems to remember that..hmm.. Anyhoo, glad I found you!

jp said...

I've always loved these two. Harvey had the best job in the world - he just had to show up and let Tim make him laugh. And the more Harvey laughed, the funnier the sketch was.

Good Afternoon Julie,
This is just too funny. I needed this laugh after the morning I had earlier. I will post about it tomorrow. I used to watch the Carol Burnett Show all the time. The, I used to watch Mama's Family. Even when my kids were smaller they would watch Mama's Family with me. Now, me and hubby likes to watch the Larry the Cable Guy, Bill Engvall, Ron White, and Jeff Foxworthy. But, Larry and Bill are our favorites out of the bunch. Comedy sure isn't what it used to be back then. I appreciate you stopping by again yesterday. If you don't mind, I would like to add you to my blogroll. Take care my friend and have a Great Thursday and God Bless You.

Hugs,
Karen H.

Oh I loved that show! I haven't even thought about those sketches in a thousand years. Thanks for the laugh Jules!

Alice said...

What a funny show that was. The cast really liked each other and that came through. Their humor was so kind, not the rough stuff that passes as humor today.

T*mmy said...

ROFL...now that was when comedy was comedy!

I've always loved those guys!

Thanks so much for sharing the piece on Tim Conway. He was so funny. I used to love watching shows like carol burnett's. Also loved watching Tim in McHales navy. Things were so much fun back then.

Janet said...

Hey Julie, finally have time to make a return visit! Everything looks so great, congrats on the grand opening! (And thanks for not giving up on my intermittent blog attempts!)

I *love* that clip-- when I was a kid, I used to pretend that I couldn't sleep on Carol Burnett night, and wheedle my parents into allowing me to watch. That and M*A*S*H were always my faves!
Hugs,
J.

OMG! That was hilarious! I remember watching those two on the Carol Burnett show all the time. I would cry real tears because I was laughing so hard. Thanks for the memories, Julie.

Sondra said...

That was so funny. I REALLY needed a laugh today. Thanks!

the feathered nest said...

They were so funny - really & truly funny! I used to love the Carol Burnett show. The best part was always when they made each other crack up!

JANET said...

I remember those days too! We still watch Home Improvement and Andy Griffith reruns, but we really enjoyed The Carol Burnett Show. I'd love to have those reruns on DVD.

rosemary said...

Michelle said...

I remember watching the Carol Burnett show. They just don't do comedy like they used to.

JO ~ NeereAnDearCreations.com said...

I posted earlier but had to come back to post again and see what everyone thought of that sketch

Does anyone remember Tim Conway as "Dorf"...(Ithink that was his name) where he would stick his knees in a pair of shoes and walk around in them ???

Oh the laughs!!

You have me all nostalgic now...

Nancy said...

You are a very sweet girl and make the nicest comments on my blog. I just want to tell you, I enjoy every one of them. I have seen that show before, very cute. What a great show that was.

Sharon said...

I have always just loved this skit! It is soooo funny! I recorded a whole bunch of episodes of The Carol Burnett show, she had some classic stuff on there. Remember when she spoofed Gone with the Wind? So, so funny!
