Go Do That Voodoo That You Do So Well
Mr. Harvey Korman passed yesterday at the age of 81. Here are the details; http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20080530/ap_en_mo/obit_korman_27. Here is another excellent blog on Mr. Korman; http://www.aintitcool.com/node/36918.
“Blazing Saddles”, “History of the World Part I”, and of course, “The Carol Burnett Show”, simply would not have been the same without him. I always loved the pairing of Tim Conway and Harvey Korman as well but the real joy was watching them improvise and fly by the seat of their pants during those skits; they turned mistakes, gaffs and bloopers into pure comedy gold.
My thoughts and prayers are with his friends and family at this time. Mel Brooks said, “"A world without Harvey Korman — it's a more serious world…”
He was right.
