Harvey Korman was one of the funniest people I have ever seen perform live on the planet. He, along with Tim Conway, are, in my opinion, the Dynamic Duo of modern comedy. Their skits have inspired today’s comedians, they made millions of people collapse on their living room floors laughing, and they turned the world upside down.
Harvey Korman could never hold in his laughter. In the Dentist sketch (which is by far the funniest sketch, in my opinion) Korman has a sore tooth which needs to be extracted. So Conway proceeds to numb Korman up….Instead, he stabs HIMSELF 3 times. In the hand, in the leg, then in the head. During that period of time, Korman is just dying of laughter in the dentist chair.
He died of an earlier complication he had a few months ago. I’ll be honest, I nearly cried when I found out the news. He was a riot when I saw him live with Conway. My parents are huge fans of them. He will be sadly missed.
RIP Harvey Korman.
