    About The Carol Burnett Show
    While there’s no truth to the rumor that “CBS” ever stood for The Carol Burnett Show, for eleven seasons and 278 episodes, this star-studded extravaganza of sketch comedy, song and dance became entertainment central for the network and TV viewers. Taped before a live audience at Hollywood’s CBS Television City Studio 33, The Carol Burnett Show featured clever, dazzling production numbers in an intimate environment, thanks to strategic camera placement that brought the actors and audience closer together. Burnett operated in a relaxed theater setting that allowed her to take questions, cut loose with her famous Tarzan yell and join fellow performers Harvey Korman, Vicki Lawrence and Lyle Waggoner to have a laugh or sing a song. The show received 25 Emmy Awards and eight Golden Globes, making it one of the most honored shows in television history. TIME Magazine named The Carol Burnett Show one of the "100 Best Television Shows of all Time" and Carol Burnett has been honored with more People's Choice Awards than any other actress.

    I agree. True clean FUNNY comedy. They just can’t touch this today. Hardly original today. My 9 year old cracks up watching these guys and asks to watch over and over. I love the episode when he shuffles in the kitchen ant like an inch an hour, hilarious

    It's interesting that Carol would let Harvey and Tim do these sketches without her being in them. She let them shine.

    A businessman (Harvey Korman) doesn't know what he's in for when he stops for a hot dog and a milkshake at a shop run by The Oldest Man (Tim Conway) /////////// morbius109 Tim Conway was a delightfully wicked terror, for sure. Every time he was on camera with Harvey, he would spare no effort to destroy the man's control. And the longer Harvey held back his giggling and laughing fits, the harder Tim would hammer at him until he finally broke, and when he did, he'd be on the verge of tears. This show is ageless, classic comedic gold./////////// Dennis Jeffs In all the years Tim and Harvey were together I never saw a dud sketch, always hilarious, gut aching laughs galore, always making each other crack up, scripted and ad lib as well, and when Carol joined in the whole show was side-splitting!! Thanks for the uploads of these old programmes, Tim & Carol still with us, RIP Harvey, always remembered.////////// gina Carrasco This is a comedy at its best, Tim and Harvey were one of a kind. ////////// Karen P I used to sit down with my family every week after dinner to watch The Carol Burnett Show in the seventies and we all just laughed so hard we could hardly stand it. Harvey and Tim were great together, especially when they would start laughing. I miss the show. /////////// willhowcoop Tim was so deliciously evil with his ability to crack up Harvey. What's so great about these sketches was the mutual admiration, respect and love these two had for each other; they worked together for years and Tim always tried to mess up Harvey and Harvey always lost it. Brilliant pair of guys.////////////// Janis Lafreniere I used to watch this every Saturday night when I was babysitting. It was so funny- there are no variety shows anymore, like the Sonny and Cher show, Carol Burnett. And it’s clean humor. /////////// heck B that's when people enjoyed life, not like today everyone just seems angry all the time and stressed ////////// Robert Jenkins I for 1 ABSOLUTELY loved watching the Carol Burnett just can't find true comedy like these goofballs did...I wish with all my heart that comedy would go back to people who did real comedy like this instead of the filth and disgusting stuff that they call comedy now...I REALLY do miss this //////////// Robert Hancock I love these!! This was a real comedy at its most brilliant best!! So sad that Tim Conway is now suffering from Dementia.////////// Written by Tim Conway.I was born and then I did The Carol Burnett Show for eleven years. What else is there to know? I have six Emmy’s. Big deal. I am also in The Comedy Hall of Fame, it was a natural since I spent a lot of my time in grade school out in the hall. I went to Bowling Green State University for eleven years. A very slow learner (I proofread my bio). I was in the army (ours) for two years and was in McHale's Navy for three years. That is a total of five years of service. My ambition was to be a jockey, but at my weight, even the horses were asking me to get off. I have seven children, two grandchildren and a puppy. I have been married since 1984, a record for Hollywood. I do not have a serious thought in my head. Enjoy the show.

    They would do 2 tapings with 2 different audiences. The first time Tim would do it as rehearsed. The second Tim would do things Harvey hadn't seen. Explains why Harvey would always lose it.

    I remember Saturday nights in the 70s. Mash, All in the Family, Mary Tyler Moore show, Bob Newhart show, Carol Burnett show and Saturday Night Live. No one went out to party during that period. No need to. Amazing television.

    When Harvey said it was a Rush, I didn't expect another stamp and ink pad to come out, and to slowly stamp the order Rush... hilarious! Good clean fun without bathroom or gutter language. Also, I noticed that Tim was more intent than usual to make Harvey lose it, which happened several times in this sketch, loved it! Even from behind you could tell Harvey was losing it as his shoulders shook in laughter. Great stuff!

    There will never be another comedy show quite like, or for that matter, ANYTHING like this. Good clean fun. Today's " comic's " have to resort to dirty jokes and poor political humor. Conway and corman could make a blender funny. This is a prime example, they make a hot dog funny. If today's comic's tried this, you wouldn't want kids in the room. The Will always be THE BEST comedy show to ever exist. Thanks for the memories.

    Priceless , never gets old . We don't have too much of that kind of humor anymore . Plane and simple . We need more of this . Laughter is good medicine , according to Proverbs . Sure miss the good old days . One thing they did was to keep their acts clean and decent . You don't have to be vulgar and obcene to be funny . Hat's off to the good old days .
    ps . The funniest show was when Tim was a dentist and Harvey was a patient in the chair . O my word , l crack up thinking about it . LOLLOL
