Tim Conway, star of the ‘Carol Burnett Show,’ dies at 85

Tim Conway, who gained fame as bumbling Ensign Parker on McHale's Navy and for a slew of silly characters on The Carol Burnett Show, has died.

Conway died Tuesday morning after a long illness in Los Angeles, according to Howard Bragman, who heads LaBrea Media. Prior to his death, he had suffered complications from normal pressure hydrocephalus (NPH) and had no signs of dementia or Alzheimer's, Bragman said.

Carol Burnett is devastated by the loss of her fellow comedian and co-star, Tim Conway. Conway joined the cast as a regular in 1975 after being a frequent guest. He later voiced Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy in Spongebob Squarepants and also won additional Emmys for his roles in Coach and 30 Rock. "And Dave did, and then he'd say, 'OK, '" Burnett said.

The linesman will say he thought it wasn't [clear], but the referee gave it, so work that one out". "Contact is minimal but there is a foul there and I don't understand why it was changed".

"There's nobody funnier in the world, I don't think, than Conway", she said in an interview with the Television Academy Foundation published in 2012. Korman was a close friend of Conway's who often broke into laughs during Conway's performances.

In one popular skit, Conway's portrayal of an inept dentist who accidentally injects himself with painkiller resulted in Korman, who was playing the patient, laughing so hard that he wet his trousers, Burnett said. "The truth is I don't think there's anything else I could be doing so the answer would have to be, nothing ... Wait until Vicki Lawrence's a-bomb ad-lib at the end", wrote Patton Oswalt, accompanied with a video of some Carol Burnett Show outtakes.
