While Tim Conway's time on the "Carol Burnett Show" is often viewed as the highlight of his career, he was a multi-talented performer in television, movies and stand up comedy.  His ability for ad-lib improvisational humor often resulted in his co-stars becoming unable to continue with their lines and the story line of the scene to go in an entirely different direction away from the script.

 

Tim Conway

 
The Tim Conway - Harvey Korman Carol Burnett Show "The Dentist" skit has been called the funniest skits in the history of television.
 
 
 
Tim earned his first Emmy award for this role as Ensign Charles Parker
 
in McHales Navy, starring Ernest Borgnine.  He received 13 Emmy nominations throughout his career while receiving four awards.

That was too funny. I'd never seen that skit before.

TEG:  As we have discussed before, the comedy of the past were built upon a sense of timing and awareness of humor. Not the case today ...

Just a man trying to support himself:

 

"Here’s another great example of Conway’s skills as both a physical comedian and actor, as he plays a seemingly hapless door-to-door salesman who tricks Vicki Lawrence into doing his job for him—and keeps the change, to boot."

And when the going gets tough, the tough arrive:

Yep, the first "Ashy Slashy" appearance 

In this long sketch Conway plays a not particularly threatening—or competent—Nazi interrogator who does more damage to the room he’s in than the prisoner. His co-star Lyle Waggoner cracks about halfway through; if you thought Jimmy Fallon was bad about losing it on SNL, you might not be able to handle The Carol Burnett Show, where cracking was pretty much a constant.

For all those looking for employment options through retirement:

These types of establishments are still around and are worth the effort to find.

Here's another skit where Tim Conway took control, or so it seemed at the time.  Vickie Lawrence obtained revenge at the 4:18 mark however...
