The best

  1. I absolutely love that clip - found it a few years back and watch it every once in awhile. It never gets old. The four comedics on The Carol Burnett Show were so good.

  2. I saw it the first time it aired, and still laugh out loud when I watch it. This is from a TV show called Mama's Family, starring the woman who played Carol's sister on the Carol Burnett Show. Those two shows were the last I can remember that the whole family could watch and enjoy.

    Priceless! The Carol Burnett show was a favorite and their humor was hysterically funny. Still is.

    Ta, John!

    Hugs!

  5. Carol Burnett was genius! Her show managed to be witty, smart and hysterically funny.
    That episode of her playing Scarlett and actually wearing drapes? GE-NIUS.

    LMAOOOO the dwarf and the elephant were lovers? They were cracking up! I got the hiccups.

    XOXO

  13. I loved The Carol Burnette show - it was on the night that my dad worked late so mom always let me stay up to watch with her. Tim Conway's mission in life was always to crack up the rest of the cast - and he usually succeeded!

  14. Watch the clip of Harvey Korman at the dentist. Tim Conway is the dentist. It’s pure genius. Carol Burnett had a wonderful show!

  17. A 'corpsing' classic, and one of the best ever. As Jenny (above) says, it never dates.

    Pete and Dud pub-talk sketches were also great examples, a dreadful loss having been that the BBC wiped an awful lot of them, having needed the tapes to over-record.
    Also seen quite a number of live corpsings, notably in performances of Alan Ayckbourn plays. Never fails to get a laugh, almost always bigger than anything actually in the script. So infectious.

    They were all just so funny. Tim Conway was notorious for cracking them all up, but they all held up against him here for such a long time, and then Vicki Lawrence ended being the one to finish them off with her comment at the end. Of course it never could have aired at the time, but it was especially brilliant as she stayed in character, and it was exactly what you imagine her character, Mamma, would have said if there hadn't been the censorship of the day.
