“The Carol Burnett Show” provided us with many laughs for 11 years. And, of course, Tim Conway and Harvey Korman were one of the best comedy duos of all time. They not only tried to make the audience laugh, but they tried to make each other laugh as well.
It’s hard to believe this classic sketch comedy series began airing over 50 years ago. The comedy was so pure, and rather perfect, that it’s still fun to watch decades after it first aired.
Harvey Korman Coaches Tim Conway On Picking Up Ladies
One of the more memorable skits from the series was when Harvey tried to teach Tim how to pick up women. This certainly wasn’t something Tim’s character was skilled at because he thought he was just supposed to grab unsuspecting women and kiss them.
When a woman sat next to Harvey at the bar, he showed Tim how to be flirtatious and grab a woman’s attention, without assaulting them.
After Tim witnessed this, Carol Burnett walked into the bar and sat next to Tim. He knew this was his chance to make a move. Tim Conway tried to put Harvey’s lesson to good use, but it was one awkward attempt after another, to no avail.
Then, the ceiling started falling in, literally.
In today’s hyper-feminist environment, there is no way this skit could air on prime time television. Watch the video below to remember how funny television used to be!
