How Tim Conway cracked up the Emmy Awards in 1978

When it comes to comedy duos, Tim Conway and Harvey Korman are among the funniest of all time. “FOATs,” if you will, of their generation thanks to their longtime collaboration on The Carol Burnett Show. Throughout 11 seasons, the actors also demonstrated their comic genius through a series of acceptance speeches, none more hilarious than in 1978, when Conway read an important telegram: “Tim, we know this is your day, but we hope you it takes a few moments to think of us. … Our thoughts are always with you. Love, the gang in the Tarzana pitch-n-putt.” Conway’s humor transcended the screen, says his daughter Kelly, who wrote the book My Dad’s Funnier Than Your Dad. “Something important to him, whatever he was doing, he wanted to be able to see it in a room with grandparents and toddlers. He didn’t want anyone to feel embarrassed or run off because of a weird joke or something naughty. He cleaned everything up to the end.”
