Harvey Korman Dies at 81

I just found out that Harvey Korman passed away on Thursday. He was one of the giants of comedy in the 60s and 70s. I still remember many of his skits from the old Carol Burnett show. In particular, I loved how Korman and Tim Conway would play off each other. Here's one of my favorite pieces where Conway plays a novice dentist and ends up injecting himself in the hand and leg with Novocaine. Korman tries his best to play it straight, but eventually can's help himself and starts cracking up.

Rest in peace, Mr. Korman - you made many of us laugh so hard we cried.

"I'm so glad we had this time together
Just to have a laugh and sing a song
Seems we just got started and before you know it
Comes the time we have to say, 'So long"
